OJ Simpson Succumbs to Prostate Cancer, Denying Hospice Rumors

Former football star OJ Simpson, known for his infamous murder trial in 1995, has passed away at the age of 76 after battling prostate cancer. Simpson’s family confirmed his death on Wednesday, stating that he succumbed to his battle with cancer while surrounded by his children and grandchildren.

Just two months prior to his passing, Simpson had reassured his fans of his “good health” in a social media video. Despite his prostate cancer diagnosis, he expressed optimism about his condition, mentioning that he was dealing with some issues but expected to be back on the golf course in a couple of weeks. The video also featured Simpson discussing his support for the San Francisco 49ers and offering his prediction for the Super Bowl, where his team ultimately lost to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Rumors had circulated that Simpson was in hospice care, but he quickly denied them. In November, pictures had surfaced showing Simpson looking frail and walking with a limp during a visit to Las Vegas. However, he remained steadfast in his denial of any hospice care.

Prostate cancer, the second-leading cause of cancer death in American men, claimed Simpson’s life. The American Cancer Society reports that approximately one in 44 men will die from this disease.

The legacy of OJ Simpson is marked by his acquittal in the murder case of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. Despite his controversial past, Simpson’s battle with cancer serves as a reminder of the prevalence and impact of this disease.
