OJ Simpson's lost murder 'confession' resurfaces

The interview special, If I Did It, was supposed to air on FOX 12 years ago to accompany Simpson's book, If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer.

Several times throughout the interview he described Brown Simpson: she was insecure about her weight, wore tight dresses, got plastic surgeries and was a confrontational person, he said.

For over a decade, the tapes of the infamous exchange with radio host and publisher Judith Regan were considered lost but have re-emerged, says Fox, which is finally airing the footage on Sunday.

O.J. Simpson was almost a guest star on The Simpsons, showrunner Al Jean revealed on Sunday.

Simpson was a talented and record-breaking National Football League player who was later put on trial for the murder of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman. "This was literally misplaced", Wrong said on Thursday before screening 45 minutes of the interview for journalists. Soledad O'Brien hosts the special, which airs with limited commercial interruptions. This news led some of Jean's followers to question whether or not FOX would have pulled the episode following the Trial of the Century, while others noted that the interview had bumped The Simpsons from their usual Sunday night slot for the week. He describes going to Nicole Brown Simpson's home with an accomplice, a so-called friend named Charlie, who brought along a knife.

Wrong said that Simpson's account in the videotaped interview hews largely to the account in the book but there are variations in the telling and includes unfounded claims by Simpson, including that Nicole Brown Simpson was pregnant.

Nick Gordon Arrested For Domestic Violence
Gordon, who admitted the two had been drinking, called Leal "crazy", but said he didn't want to press charges. Gordon was arrested Saturday in Florida on domestic violence charges for the second time in the a year ago .

Simpson said he kept a knife in the auto "for the crazies" and added that Charlie had followed Goldman, carrying the knife. Two years later, Simpson was found liable for their deaths in a civil trial and was ordered to pay over $33 million to the families of the victims.

"And to be honest, after that, I don't remember, except I'm standing there and there's all kinds of stuff around". He was released on parole in October 2017.

Regan reminds Simpson that he wrote in the book that he "had never seen so much blood" and that he was "covered" in it.

However, one interesting story has come from Fox deciding to air this special - and on March 11, in particular. Simpson says he walked around the property and Ron Goldman appeared, saying he was at the restaurant where Nicole dined and was returning the sunglasses her mom left behind.

The publishing giant canceled amid a public backlash and the rights switched to the Goldman family, who published their own version in 2007 with their added comments.
