There were murmurs earlier this week that OJ Simpson would be the newest celebrity to try his luck on Celebrity Apprentice in the upcoming season. But OK! can confirm that this is nothing more than rumor.

An NBC Celebrity Apprentice rep confirmed to OK! that OJ Simpson is not in the running to be cast on next season’s Celebrity Apprentice. While casting is underway after America’s Got Talent judge Piers Morgan won the last installment, OK! can confirm that the controversial ex-footballer will not be one of those in the running to compete!

How did the rumor start? OJ Simpson approached Donald Trump to be on his show but that’s where things ended. A source close to to the show said, "NBC is not considering OJ Simpson nor have they ever at all for this — Donald Trump was big on the idea for a few minutes but NBC didn’t even consider it!"
