Although he was married to Marguerite, Simpson engaged in an affair with Nicole Brown, who was working as a nightclub waitress in Beverly Hills. During 1979, Simpson confirmed his divorce with Marguerite and in 1985, finalized his marriage with Nicole. However, his relationship with Nicole worsened over time due to accusations of physical violence against Simpson. Ultimately, Simpson divorced Nicole in 1992.

Throughout his career with USC, Simpson managed to create 13 college football records and bagged the 1968 Heisman Trophy. In the 1969 draft, Simpson became the first pick and earned a five-year contract worth $650,000 with the Buffalo Bills.

Simpson’s reputation suffered a major setback in 1994 when his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman succumbed to death in Los Angeles. Although Simpson tried to escape on his Ford Bronco, he finally surrendered after two hours of drama. In October 1995, the jury concluded that Simpson was innocent and hence, he was acquitted.
