Over the recent weeks rumors have been rife that Oprah Winfrey will be conducting an interview controversial former NFL star O.J. Simpson over his alleged recent confessions for the murders of his wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman.
But don’t get your hopes up too soon because reps for Harpo Productions tell The Hollywood Reporter: “It’s not true.”
However, Oprah said of Simpson at an event in Chicago last week: “I have a dream of O.J. Simpson confessing to me. I am going to make that happen, people … I don’t just want the interview. I want the interview on the condition that you are ready to confess, Mr Simpson,” she continued.
In 1995 Simpson was acquitted of the double murders of both Goldman and Brown. He was later found guilty of wrongful deaths in a civil proceeding and also planned to “admit” to the murders in a book called “If I Did It…” But the book never saw the light of day after it sparked outrage, forcing the publisher to cancel its release.
O.J. is now currently serving a 33 year prison sentence for his part in a 2007 robbery at the Palace Station Casino in Las Vegas for sports memorabilia.
