O.J. Simpson has reportedly been discharged from parole early effective December 1 after displaying "good behavior."

The news comes one day after a hearing before the Nevada Board of Parole, reported The Sun. "Mr. Simpson is a completely free man now," Simpson’s lawyer, Malcolm LaVergne, declared in Las Vegas on Tuesday, December 13. The 74-year-old former football icon declined to speak after the ruling.

As OK! previously reported, in a cringeworthy interview earlier this year, Simpson confessed he doesn't like to travel to Los Angeles because he is concerned about running into the "real" murderer.

"People may think this is self-serving, but I might be sitting next to whoever did it. I really don’t know who did this," the former actor maintained. "I figured eventually somebody would confess to something, you know? I had one suspect I told my lawyers to look at. I still think he might be involved, but I can’t talk about it."

Simpson is now living what he calls the "good life" at his Las Vegas home. The father-of-five noted "people truly care" for him now, and that he couldn't have understood that without going through the "serious stuff" he has experienced. "The media won't say it, but that is my life."
