AP Exclusive: OJ Simpson says ‘Life is fine’ after prison ,
Twenty-five years after the grisly killings that transformed him from Hall of Fame football hero to murder suspect, 71-year-old O.J.
Simpson says he is happy and healthy living in Las Vegas, plays golf nearly every day and stays in touch with his children. “Life is fine,” Simpson recently told The Associated Press in a telephone interview from his home.
“We don’t need to go back and relive the worst day of our lives,” he said as Wednesday’s anniversary of the killings approached.
“The subject of the moment is the subject I will never revisit again. My family and I have moved on to what we call the ‘no negative zone.’ We focus on the positives.”
“I don’t suffocate in my grief,” Goldman’s sister, Kim, told the AP in an interview. “But every milestone that my kid hits, every milestone that I hit, you know, those are just reminders of what I’m not able to share with my brother and what he is missing out on.”
“Yeah, I hear he’s living the life of Riley out there in Las Vegas, being treated like a king,” Goldman said sarcastically. But she added she rarely thinks of him unless someone brings up his name. Nicole Brown Simpson’s sisters Tanya and Denise did not respond to email or phone messages.
His parole officer has given him permission to take short trips, including to Florida, where his two younger children, Justin and Sydney, have built careers in real estate. His older daughter, Arnelle, lives with him much of the time.
He also visited relatives in Louisiana, he said, and spoke to a group of black judges and prosecutors in New Orleans.
