O.J. Simpson has been ordered to appear to Fred Goldman's — the father of murder victim, Ron Goldman — lawyer on September 16 to discuss questions regarding the former felon's assets.
New court documents that have been obtained by TMZ Sports say that a Nevada judge is requiring that the ex football star be prepared to discuss "employment, property and funds" or risk getting promptly slapped with a bench warrant for his arrest.
This is likely the still grieving father's attempts to collect on the millions of dollars that he is owed.
Though the popular athlete was acquitted for the murders of Ron and Nicole Brown, in 1997, he was still found liable for their deaths and ordered to pay a whopping 33.5 million to the Goldman family.
Including interest, the amount has potentially ballooned to a massive $70 million now, but the furious father reportedly claimed back in February that in the last 24 years, he has only seen around $132,000 of the money owed to him.
This potential legal battle could very well have been sparked due to Simpson's recent bragging about his supposedly perfect life.
OK! reported in early August that the former up and coming actor told TheAthletic.com interviewer Tim Graham not only that he doesn't work, but he plays golf "four or five days a week", and that strangers will buy him drinks and happily ask him for pictures and hugs — especially the ladies.
"People truly care for me," Simpson said. "You don’t know who truly cares about you until you’ve gone through some serious stuff, and I’ve gone through serious stuff. The media won’t say it, but that is my life. I’m living a good life now."
This new legal request comes after Fred made it clear how he feels about Simpson even nearly 25 years after the brutal murders when he called it "a shame" that the man hadn't died of his bout with COVID-19.
"I certainly don’t think he deserves any sympathy," Goldman said candidly. "He’s alive, he’s free. He can do anything he wants. Everything my son can’t do."
