O.J. Simpson, the legendary football player whose life was marked by triumphs on the field and legal battles off it, has died at the age of 76 after a battle with cancer, according to his family.

Simpson’s journey from sports icon to controversial figure captivated the nation, defined by his sensational trial for the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman, which ended in his acquittal in 1995.

Simpson, nicknamed “The Juice,” rose to fame as a standout running back at the University of Southern California before enjoying a successful career in the NFL, setting numerous records and becoming a household name.

However, his life took a dramatic turn following the brutal murders of Brown Simpson and Goldman in 1994, leading to a trial that became known as the “trial of the century.”

Despite his acquittal in the criminal trial, Simpson’s legal troubles continued, culminating in a conviction in 2008 for armed robbery and kidnapping. After serving nine years in prison, he was granted parole in 2017.

Throughout his life, Simpson remained a polarizing figure, with his legacy defined by both his athletic achievements and his controversial legal battles.

He is survived by his four children and leaves behind a complex and enduring legacy that will continue to be debated for years to come.
