Twitter Weighs In On OJ Simpson's Hypothetical "Confession"

OJ Simpson Says He's The Real Victim, “They Killed Me”

OJ Simpson Says He's The Real Victim, “They Killed Me”

The previously unaired TV interview was conducted by publisher Judith Regan, with whom Simpson worked on the book - in which Simpson allegedly laid out how he would have killed his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman on the night of June 12, 1994. TMZ got this exclusive clip.

At the beginning of Simpson's televised conversation with Judith Regan-the woman who published his "If I Did It" book-he initially hesitated, claiming "it's not easy to discuss", which is weird, considering this is all supposed to be "hypothetical", right?

O.J. Simpson also called "The Juice", the football-star-turned-actor-turned-felon is popularly known for the trial and acquittal for the murders of his former wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman. Had Nicole's dog not led a passerby to the condo after the murders, O.J.'s children would have awakened in the morning and found their mom's mangled, bloody body. And beyond that, why would someone recount a "hypothetical" situation if they were 100% innocent? Describing his relationship with Brown Simpson at the time of her death, Simpson said he "loved her but I didn't like her".

"I'm sorry, I tend to keep my kids out of everything as you may notice", he said.

Nine years later, HarperCollins - owned by Fox's parent company - announced the publication of "If I Did It", in which Simpson would describe how the real murderer would have committed the killings.

"I remember I grabbed the knife-I do remember that portion, taking the knife from Charlie-and to be honest, after that I don't remember".

Simpson - who was acquitted in criminal court for the murders, but found liable in civil court - slipped up several times like this during the interview, making statements like "I remember" and "I was" numerous times, much to the chagrin of the Fox panel gathered to discuss the airing.

"Now we got to stop", he said. Simpson: "The Lost Confession?".

Simpson said he kept a knife in the auto "for the crazies" and added that Charlie had followed Goldman, carrying the knife. Nicole came out, things got heated, she told OJ to get the f*** off her property, and then he says Nicole fell and hurt herself.

Elsewhere in the interview, Simpson provided his take on the 911 call Nicole Brown Simpson made in 1993, in which he could be heard yelling in the background as she sounded very distressed. "Blood and stuff... everything was covered, would have been covered in blood... it was frightful".
