Oprah Reps Say Rumors That O.J. Confessed Are Not True

The Internet hype is only hype, the camp reports.

Oprah Winfrey O.J. Simpson

What in the name of double jeopardy?


Some media outlets are reporting that O.J. Simpson allegedly confessed to a producer for Oprah Winfrey that he murdered his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Brown in self-defense.


But, don’t believe the hype—Oprah’s reps are saying that the reports are “not true.”


The National Enquirer reported that Simpson drove to his ex-wife’s home in 1994 to confront her about an earlier incident at their daughter’s school, and it was there where Nicole lunged at him with a kitchen knife.


“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,” the Enquirer reports he said.


Simpson is currently serving a nine-year sentence for an attempted robbery in Vegas.


Just last week Oprah told cable industry executives attending the National Cable & Telecommunications Association convention in Chicago that she has a dream of O.J. Simpson confessing to her on her new show, Oprah's Next Chapter.


“I don’t just want the interview. I want the interview on the condition that you are ready, Mr. Simpson,” she said.


Though it may not be a new car, only time will tell if this will be one of Oprah’s surprises on her struggling new network.
