Crime Triggered FameSydney’s father was professional American Football player turned actor and broadcaster, OJ Simpson, while her mother was Nicole Brown Simpson. Her father is known for being a winner of the Heisman Trophy and was a star player during his prime. He met her mother who was working as a nightclub waitress in 1977, and they married in 1985 just months before her birth. The marriage would last until 1992 when her mother filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences. Two years after the couple’s divorce, Nicole was found dead alongside a friend named Ronald Goldman outside of her father’s condominium located in Brentwood, California. Goldman was found with stab wounds in the chest and neck while Nicole was stabbed repeatedly and her carotid artery was cut. The deaths of the two quickly made headlines, and OJ became the prime suspect, being charged with the murders of the two.
The trial for murder went for a long eight-months, and was televised and closely followed. Many considered it the trial of the century and it came to an end when Simpson was acquitted, freeing him from any charges as he walked away a free man. OJ’s attorney who helped him get the acquittal also found fame. He is Robert Kardashian who is now known as the late father of celebrities Kim, Khloe, and Rob Kardashian. The trial also came with a long grueling battle for custody and the mother’s family strongly objected to OJ getting custody of his two children. However, the objections were not enough and he won full custody of his children. However, relatives of the two victims found themselves on the receiving end of large amounts of money totaling $33.5 million, with a civil suit filed against OJ finding him liable for the deaths.
