O.J. Simpson has been in the news this week because June 12, 2014 marked the 20-year anniversary of the death of Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ronald Goldman. According to Radar Online, Simpson's daughter, Sydney Brooke Simpson, used to talk about her mother's death with her (now ex) boyfriend, Stuart Alexander Lee. Just in time for the "anniversary," Lee spoke to the site about how Sydney feels about the whole case -- now that she is an adult (she was just 8-years-old when her mom died).
"Everybody contacts [Sydney] to speak out. She could be an inspiration to so many people, but she's scared. She doesn't understand. Hopefully one day she will. [In private,] she talked about the murders, of course. Of course she talked about it. The way she feels, she doesn't feel like he did it."
O.J. Simpson was acquitted in both murder charges brought against him many moons ago. While there are plenty of people who still believe that the former NFL player committed both murders, Simpson has gone about his life without any form of direct punishment -- unless, of course, you believe in karma. O.J. is currently in jail, serving a 33-year prison sentence after being convicted of kidnapping and armed robbery back in 2008 (via Sports Illustrated). He is eligible for parole in 2017 -- he will be 70-years-old.
Lee says that O.J. is still close with his kids and that he's a "good guy."
"He's a good father from behind bars. They all still love him very much. They go out and visit him, and he calls them all the time and they talk together all the time. He's a father. He's a good guy. I don't think he did it."
"They speculate that it was a drug deal gone bad. May she rest in peace, but [Nicole's] throat was cut like a Colombian necktie. Sydney doesn't believe O.J. did it, but she doesn't know what to believe. The media changes, and how the police changed the whole situation… Either way, her mother died."
