Sydney and her brother Ryan have been successful in staying away from the media and public discussion. They very much lead a normal non-celebrity life, however, having a legend as a father and the circumstances surrounding their mother’s death have always had people talking about them. Their volition for staying away from the media and public discuss very much relates to their mother’s demise which is rather a murder case her father O.J Simpson is said to be associated with it and in fact stood trial for.
Well, people won’t stop talking about her even as award-winning crime series “The People v. O.J. Simpson: An American Crime Story,” has been produced to remind the public about the story and ask questions about what has happened to Nicole and O.J Simpsons children.
Sydney Brooke Simpson’s Relationship With O.J Simpson
Nicknamed The Juice is Sydney Brooke and Justin Ryan Simpson’s father. His full name is Orenthal James Simpson but he is popularly known as O.J Simpson, a retired NFL legend. Sydney was birthed to him by his late wife Nicole a little above 8 months after he tied the nuptial cord with her, having divorced his first wife Marguerite L. Whitley.
O.J Simpsons, a Heisman Trophy winner and a star NFL football player met Nicole Brown- Syndey’s mother, a nightclub waitress in 1977. This led him to divorce his first wife Marguerite in 1979 with her 3 children just months after retiring from the NFL. Six years later, Brown and Simpson married on 2 February 1985 and had Sydney on October 17, 1985. Justin Simpson increased the number of family members to 4 on August 6, 1988.
By 1989, Simpson and Brown’s marriage was heading for the rocks when O.J was accused of spousal abuse by his wife who in furtherance of this, filed for divorce in 1992 citing “irreconcilable differences’ as the basis for her prayer for divorce.
Series of sad events and attempted reconciliation which didn’t work unfortunately led to the death of Nicole Brown and her friend Ronald Goldman outside of Nicole’s condo in Brentwood 2 years after filing for divorce.
Sydney and Justin were just 8 and 5 respectively when their mother and her friend was murdered at her Los Angeles home on June 12, 1994. O.J Simpson was later tried for Nicole Brown’s gruesome murder but was controversially acquitted in a highly-public eight-months trial. His attorney and close friend Robert Kardashian – the late father of Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Rob, saw to this. This trial was dubbed “the trial of the century” but O.J’s acquittance stirred up public dissatisfaction and condemnation.
O.J served his prison time in a Nevada prison for a 2008 conviction for kidnapping and armed robbery charges, after leading a group of men to break into a hotel room in Las Vegas to steal sports memorabilia. He stood for parole in July 2017, and while behind bars, he lost his home in Miami due to foreclosure. He was released from prison on October 1, 2017, after serving 9 years behind bars.
