The family of O.J. Simpson, a former NFL star whose reputation was marred by his murder trial three decades ago and subsequent imprisonment on separate charges, has announced his passing at the age of 76.

His family announced the news on X:

On April 10th, our father, Orenthal James Simpson, succumbed to his battle with cancer.

He was surrounded by his children and grandchildren. 

During this time of transition, his family asks that you please respect their wishes for privacy and grace.

From TMZ:

Adding to the mystery was the fact O.J. actually touched on a cancer diagnosis in 2023 in a video he posted on X — when he said he’d “caught” some form of cancer, but suggested he’d beaten it. In any case, the cancer came back and claimed his life about a year later.

O.J. had been looking frail in the lead-up to his passing … including during an outing in January when he was spotted using a cane.

The last time O.J. posted was a video of himself talking about Super Bowl LVIII, where he said he was rooting for his former team the San Francisco 49ers. He seemed to be in good spirits then. He was seated in the clip and talking from the backyard of a home.
