O.J. Simpson, who was recently denied his request for a new trial in November, is now asking President Obama to pardon him and grant him an early release, after discovering that he has brain cancer.

“O.J. says his memory is slipping and he gets painful headaches and other symptoms,” a source told The Enquirer. “He began suffering dizzy spells; nausea, lapses in memory – and the frightening symptoms continue to get worse.” Medical examinations have proved that Simpson does, in fact, have a cancerous tumor in his brain. Along with the cancer, Simpson is also suffering from a severe case of diabetes.

“He put off the doctors for weeks after he first started experiencing the symptoms because he was afraid of what they would find,” the source continued. “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.”

Simpson reportedly wrote a letter to the president saying: “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.”

“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,” said an anonymous source. “But OJ doesn’t care. He knows he’s never going to get out of prison, so he refuses to take care of himself.”

Simpson was convicted in 2007 of armed robbery and kidnapping, and is currently serving a 33-year sentence. He still has four years remaining before he is eligible for parole.

      Well, not on this particular charge, he didn’t. But, if you look at the entire picture, this man has committed several crimes over the years. I know he’s been arrested several times, but money & lawyers sometimes do magic. 91% of America, or something like that, feel this man is guilty of a horrific double homicide that took his ex wife away from her children. For that many people in anywhere to agree on anything is pretty amazing in itself! We all have a gut feeling about this guy which is why many were elated when they finally got a charge to stick on this guy. I don’t believe personally that cancer is a reason to excuse wreck less behavior. After he dies he can deal with who he is & what he’s done, but while here on earth, we have the law to abide by & some also have religious beliefs they abide by, & that’s great, but sadly this guy who had so much to be grateful for, threw it away. That’s all his doing, the law of the land has found him guilty. What happens after his death, is anyone’s guess.

    Hey OJ, you want to be shown mercy, since you’ve been diagnosed with cancer? Where was the mercy shown for Denise and Ron, who you basically decapitated. You’re exactly where you belong….PRISON! You’re certainly not the first, nor will you be the last, to die in prison, after being diagnosed with cancer. You’re a criminal, you don’t deserve special treatment.

  • Nancy

    Sounds reminiscent of Johnnie Cochran. Guess they both got what they deserved. I wouldn’t let him out, he is “common jailhouse scum”. He’s a criminal. I bet he’d have a “miraculous” recovery if they did let him free. Too bad money can’t buy him a cancer cure.

      The “dream team” as they were called, back in the day, the one’s who have died have all gone early & or painfully. Well, early according to statistics. I’m not all the conspiracy theory type, but, I do believe in what comes around goes around.

    I believe they said the doctors are going to run all the scans and tests to see if he has it. He should make an effort to be a part of caring for his diabetes, too. He will most likely get out one day. Going through treatment myself, I feel sorry for anyone with that diagnosis. I do, based on the evidence at his murder trial, believe he killed Ron and Nicole, and wish he’d been convicted of it, but if you watched the trial, the shenanigans of defense and prosecution and the judge, especially the defense team, helped to fuel sympathy to him, and got him off. Perhaps he thought he was truly golden after that, and believed he could get away with other crimes. I am sorry that he may be sick, as I would be for anyone. I hope he finds the Lord and changes his life. I also disliked him saying what he did about “common jailhouse scum”, which makes me feel he thinks he is a better class of criminal/prisoner than the guys he is in there with.

    “I don’t want to die in prison like common jailhouse scum”…..O.J. you just don’t get it. You ARE jailhouse scum. As a matter of fact, you ARE scum in or out of jail. You’re where you belong, and getting what you deserve.

  • Lisa S

    He was fortunate to get the sentence he got, on the robbery charge. He should have to live the next four years in prison, he may already get out early. Not counting on death & cancer, that’s his problem. Many criminals like himself, suffer the same or worse while in prison. Some don’t make it out. This is life for everyone, maybe if he didn’t want to spend his life in prison, the time to think about that would have been before now. Life & death, it happens to everyone, every single day. He chose to
    spend it there due to his own wreck less behavior.

    I wonder if he would have wrote this letter to President Busch… Hmmmm.
