O.J. Simpson Owed $114 Million To Big Name

The attorney for Ron Goldman’s father, Fred Goldman, has stated that O.J. Simpson, who passed away at the age of 76 on April 10 after a cancer diagnosis, owed the Goldman family over $100 million before his death. Simpson was found liable in a wrongful death lawsuit in 1997 and was ordered to pay the Goldman and Brown families $33.5 million, but he did not fulfill the payment.



“He died without penance,” Cook said of Simpson. “He did not want to give a dime, a nickel to Fred, never, anything, never.”

According to David Cook, Fred Goldman’s attorney, Simpson paid the family only $133,000 since the trial, which has now grown to over $114 million with interest. Cook emphasized that Simpson never wanted to pay Fred Goldman any money and left the judgment unpaid until his death.

The Goldmans’ legal team had attempted to seize Simpson’s NFL pensions and assets in various trusts, but these efforts were mostly unsuccessful. The family did have some success in court when they obtained the rights to Simpson’s book If I Did It and received some money from its sales.

Cook mentioned that the family plans to hire attorneys in multiple states, including Nevada, Florida, and California, to investigate Simpson’s estate and determine where his money will go after his death. They aim to find ways to recover the owed amount, but Cook emphasized that any further legal action will depend on Fred Goldman’s decisions.
