**Update: E Online is reporting that Oprah Winfrey’s production company is denying that the rumored interview between Ms. Winfrey and Mr. Simpson is taking place. Congresswoman Maxine Waters, California Democrat, was an outspoken critic of the O.J. Simpson trial media coverage and refused to comment on the reports this morning.

According to a new report, O.J. Simpson, who is currently incarcerated in a Nevada prison following a botched 2008 Las Vegas robbery heist, has admitted to television talk show host Oprah Winfrey that he murdered his ex-wife Nicole Brown. The U.K. Daily Mail reports: 

 

O.J Simpson has confessed to Oprah Winfrey that he murdered his former wife, it has been reported.

The talk show host made headlines recently saying that one of her regrets was never having got the shamed former sportsman to confess to the killing.

And it appears her wish may well have come true with reports Simpson has already told one of her producers in an interview from jail that he knifed ex-wife Nicole in self-defence - a confession he will now repeat to the talk show queen during a spectacular televised sit down interview.

Simpson is currently serving a nine-year sentence at Nevada’s Lovelock Correctional Centre, after he was convicted of robbery and kidnapping in Las Vegas in October 2008 after a botched heist to retrieve his memorabilia he said was stolen by dealers. 

He was famously acquitted in October 1995 of the murders of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman despite huge amounts of evidence against him.

According to the National Enquirer, the interview is set to be filmed after Simpson confessed he killed the pair in self-defence to a producer from inside prison.

‘Oprah has been in touch with O.J. for the past year,’ a source told the magazine. She contacted him in prison to explore the possibility that he might give her an interview.

 

The O.J. Simpson murder trial, called by many in the media “The Trial of the Century,” was debated all over America. From the Ford Bronco Mr. Simpson drove when California police helicopters first followed him after the discovery of the murders to the bloody leather glove, found at the scene of the crime he struggle with in the court room, the case divided many particularly in the areas of race and celebrity.
