The fallen NFL legend gave his account on the Fox television channel special ‘OJ: The Lost Confession’, which will air on Sunday for the first time after being recorded in 2006.
In a shocking moment on the show, Simpson reveals how he would theoretically have killed Nicole and Goldman. The pair were murdered at Brown’s home on 12 June 1994.
In October 1995, Simpson was acquitted for the murders but a civil suit later found him responsible for Nicole and Goldman’s deaths, forcing him to pay $33.5 million in restitution to the victims’ families.
Simpson was convicted of kidnapping, burglary and armed robbery after an incident in October 2007. He faced 33 years in prison but was released on parole last October.
Interviewer Judith Regan asks Simpson about his book ‘If I Did It’ – a separate theoretical version of how he would have committed the crime.
According to his “imagined” version of events, OJ said he confronted Nicole at her home with an accomplice named Charlie.
He then claims Nicole fell over during the row, prompting Goldman to attack him using karate.
Simpson said he then blacked out and fled with Charlie after waking up covered in blood.
“In the book, the hypothetical is Charlie came by and mentioned something about what was going on at her house,” he adds.
“I don’t know why he had been by Nicole’s house, but he told me: “You wouldn’t believe what is going on over there”.
“I remember thinking that whatever is going on over there has to stop.”
Regan has claimed the former NFL player confessed to the crime via his lawyer 12 years ago.
She says in an un-aired Fox interview that OJ’s lawyer called her and said he was ready to confess.
In a clip obtained by TMZ, she claims: “The only condition he had was he didn’t want to call the book I Did It.
“He wanted to put an ‘If’ in front of it so he had deniability with his children. He couldn’t face his children and couldn’t tell them that he’d done it.
“That was the way it was portrayed to me.”
And in another moment on the show, Simpson is quizzed about his children sleeping as their mother was murdered downstairs.
Regan asks him: “So your kids were in the house” (at the time of the murder).”
Simpson said: “Now we got to stop. Now we got to stop. It’s hard enough for me without bringing my kids into this.
“I’m sorry. I tend to keep my kids out of everything as you may notice.”
Simpson’s son Justin and his daughter Sydney were sleeping when the killing happened.
The children could have been the first to discover their mother’s body had it not been for the family dog attracting the attention of a neighbour.
In the 2016 documentary OJ: Made In America, his friend Mike Gilbert claimed he confessed to the crime while they drank beer and smoked drugs.
Gilbert said: “I just asked him: ‘What happened June 12th?’
“I said: ‘I always thought you probably did it.’
“He shook his head and he said ‘Yeah.’
“And he said ‘If she wouldn’t have opened the door with a knife she’d probably still be alive'”.
