Does O.J. Simpson Really Have Brain Cancer?

Former NFL football player OJ Simpson has the media swarming! The headlines are endless, but now he’s pushed things to an uncharted level. With his alleged confession to murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Brown-Simpson, and his claims against reality TV star Kris Jenner, Simpson will stop at nothing to garner attention.

Now, he claims to have brain cancer. So, he’s seeking clemency, and begging President Obama to pardon him due to the terminal illness. Since Simpson has become widely known for publicity stunts, the burning question most are asking is whether he really has cancer or not. Well, the National Inquirer claims he actually does.

The publication reports that Simpson, who is currently serving a 33-year prison sentence at the Lovelock Correctional Centre in Nevada, does have substantial medical reports that have traced a cancerous tumor on his brain. It has also been reported that Simpson suffers from an ‘extreme case of diabetes’. However, he is still undergoing extensive test to confirm whether or not he has terminal brain cancer, reports the Daily Mail.

A source close to ‘The Juice’ even weighed in on Simpson’s condition with the Inquirer. “O.J. says his memory is slipping and he gets painful headaches and other symptoms,” the source stated. “He began suffering dizzy spells; nausea, lapses in memory – and the frightening symptoms continue to get worse,” the source explained. “He put off the doctors for weeks after he first started experiencing the symptoms because he was afraid of what they would find. Now the prison docs are telling him they believe he has a brain tumor. They plan to run a series of tests on him, MRIs and CT scans.”

The only way Simpson could get out of prison at this point is by clemency, since he won’t be eligible for parole for another four years.

The publication also reports that the 1968 Heisman trophy winner has even taken the initiative to personally write to the president about his confinement. He reportedly wrote, “Mr President, I know my life is coming to an end. Please, don’t let me die in prison. I feel the end coming. But I don’t want to die in prison like common jailhouse scum.”

It has been cited that Simpson has been highly inactive throughout the course of his current sentence, only impelling to consume unhealthy foods filled with sugar. “OJ’s doctors have told him he could be dead in as little as three months because of his out-of-control blood sugar and blood pressure,” another source said.

“But OJ doesn’t care. He knows he’s never going to get out of prison, so he refuses to take care of himself.” If the source’s perception is accurate, that would definitely justify Simpson’s weight gain since his imprisonment.

However, the question still looms. Does O.J. Simpson have terminal brain cancer or not?

    Hold on a second. He is ” common jailhouse scum”. Why should he not die in jail? On the other hand ObamaCare might be a good substitute.

    He should Rot in Prison, I really don’t think he has a Brain Tumor, He’s just trying to get our President to grant him Clemency because he thinks he doesn’t belong in prison.

    I am sure there are many prisoners that are & have allready died from suffering terminal conditions. I’m sure many would like or have liked, to die at home. He’s no different or better then any other prisioner. I’m personally for “FOUR MORE YEARS!!” Because he should be looking at a 33 year sentence, & could potentially get out a whole lot earlier. Death is a part of life & happens to everyone, the time to be concerned about that may have been when he comitted a crime. To be unhappy where he’s going to live his last days because of something he did, sounds a bit arrogant now. Which is how he always came across to me anyways. My heart has always gone out to Nicole’s children who had to be raised by him.

    O.J. never killed anybody, and whoever is now spreading these lies about him that he admitted killing Nicole is a lying low-life. Free “The Juice”. He doesn’t belong in prison. Free “The Juice.”

  • Aknot

  • Kevin Miler

    I hope this news is true.

  • Kevin Miler

    Cut off his head right now for medical research. Should have been long ago. How could you run if you know. Wait, those are lyrics from CSNY.

  • Kevin Miler

    The guillotine solves all pain from the neck up immediately. Can we send his sorry behind to France?

    Hes trying to use the press to muster sympathy for himself. Hes so narcissistic. I think we should send him to west Africa to an Ebola camp. Or better still send him to Anthrax Island aka “Animal Disease Research Center” (its near the Hamptons). They test for Ebola, Ricin, Anthrax, AIDS etc.. He wouldnt be in jail and being close to the Hamptons would appeal to his vanity.
