The Daily Mail has a juicy story that you've probably seen today. It goes something like this: Speaking with a producer for Oprah Winfrey, acquitted alleged murderer OJ Simpson confessed to killing his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her lover, Ronald Goldman.
"Tell Oprah that yes, I did it. I killed Nicole, but it was in self-defence [sic]," OJ reportedly said. "She pulled a knife on me and I had to defend myself." It gets better:
"I went over there to give her a piece of my mind," he apparently told the producer. "She was yelling, 'Go away! Go away!' And waving the knife around at me. At one point she was lunging at me with the knife and I was just trying to talk to her. Nicole stepped out of the apartment - slashing the knife in the air. I was in such a rage that something just snapped. I couldn't take her constant taunting of me with other men or her using drugs and drinking while my kids were living with her. I went berserk. Before I knew what I was doing I took the knife away from Nicole and started slashing at her. I cut her over and over again until she was lifeless. I was shocked at my own anger - I had killed the woman I had loved for so long."
So, clearly "self-defence." Simpson than allegedly said he killed Goldman in the same way.
Before you start forwarding this to your friends, however, note that it has all been debunked. "That's not true," an Oprah representative told THR. Alas. Good story, though.
