BREAKING: OJ Simpson Dead At 76

Former NFL star O.J. Simpson, whose legacy was forever tainted by his murder trial in three decades ago and subsequent prison sentence on different charges, has died at the age of 76, according to his family.

As the New York Post reported:

O.J. Simpson — who became one of the most infamous figures in the US during his murder trial in the ’90s — has died after a cancer battle.

The former NFL star died Wednesday in Las Vegas, his family confirmed. He was 76.

“On April 10th, our father, Orenthal James Simpson, succumbed to his battle with cancer,” the family wrote on X on Thursday.

“He was surrounded by his children and grandchildren. During this time of transition, his family asks that you please respect their wishes for privacy and grace,” the brief statement added.

The news received significant attention on social media Thursday morning.

Simpson had referenced his health challenges recently, though the severity of his illness was not publicly known until his death was confirmed.
