OJ Simpson's final words revealed as fans eager to know if he 'confessed to murders'

In a sombre update, a family source has revealed OJ Simpson's final moments before his death, dismissing rumours of a 'deathbed confession'. The former American football icon passed away on Wednesday, 10 April, after a fight with cancer.

His family released an emotional statement on social media confirming his passing. It read: "On April 10th, our father, Orenthal James Simpson, succumbed to his battle with cancer. He was surrounded by his children and grandchildren."

They requested privacy during this difficult time, stating, "During this time of transition, his family asks that you please respect their wishes for privacy and grace."

OJ, who had been reportedly struggling with prostate cancer, was known for his illustrious career with the Buffalo Bills and San Francisco 49ers.

Simpson's life took a dramatic turn in 1994 when he was charged with the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, following their brutal stabbing outside her LA residence, reports the Mirror.

Despite speculation, TMZ reports that in his final days, while Simpson spoke to many loved ones, he made no admissions regarding the infamous murders. A source said that there were no confessions or mentions of Nicole or Ron, saying: "Unless being thirsty and asking for water is a confession... or wanting to watch the golf tournament. Nothing about the LA thing came up or was even thought about."

OJ was famously accused of murdering his ex-wife and her friend, with the trial being broadcast live in the US, making headlines worldwide. After an eight-month-long trial, a jury declared OJ not guilty in early October 1995.

The case made history as the first live televised trial, attracting a whopping 100 million viewers who tuned in to hear the much-awaited verdict.

TMZ reported that sources claimed anyone who visited the former star in the days leading up to his death were required to sign NDAs. This reportedly included all family members, friends, and medical staff who were assisting him during his time in hospice care.

It's said that the late sports icon had dozens of friends come to bid their farewells, with some even flying in. Reports also suggest that OJ's two youngest children, whom he shared with Nicole, were by his side during his final moments.
