OJ Simpson is going through a foreclosure as he sits in prison to serve a 33 year sentence in Nevada, but that’s not all, he also owes money to a bank for taking out a loan that he never repaid in Florida.
Simpson bought the 4,200 square foot home near Miami in 2000 for $522,000, taking out a loan for $575,000, of which he now owes JPMorgan Chase $725,000, with interest, fees and penalties, according to court filings by the bank back in September when they started the process.
Back in 2008 Simpson was originally sentenced to 33 years for his part in a kidnapping and armed robbery charge of a memorabilia dealer in Las Vegas. Simpson lost his appeal in 2010. He is eligible for parole in 2017.
Simpson also currently owes the Goldman family $33.5 million dollars for the wrongful death of Ronald Goldman. The Goldman’s attorney David Cook told the AP of the Simpson foreclosure, “No surprise at all.”
“It was just a matter of time before he would lose the house,” Cook said.
According to Chase no payments have been made on the nome since 2010.
In 1994 along with Ronald Goldman, Simpson’s wife Nicole Brown Simpson was murdered in California. OJ Simpson was charged with both crimes and then acquitted in 1995 in what was called “the trial of the century.” No one else has yet to be convicted or suspected of the slayings.
