O.J. Ordered to Surrender Profits from 2K Sports Game

nfl2k5.jpgOh O.J., when will your suffering end? Some might say never.

Anyone out there who purchased All-Pro Football 2K8 by 2K Games knows that O.J. Simpson was included in the roster. What you may not know is that Simpson was paid $50,000 for his name and likeness to be included in the game, which is pretty awesome compensation for saying “yes.”

Unfortunately for Simpson, a Los Angeles court ordered him to turn over any royalties and licensing fees he received from the use of his likeness in the game to the estate of murder victim Ron Goldman. It would be interesting to know how much more Simpson has to pay in his losses related to the lawsuit.

For those of you who don’t know, Simpson was leveed a $33.5 million dollar verdict against him in a civil suit related to the murder of his late wife and her friend, Ron Goldman. Apparently, he hasn’t yet paid the bill.

i don’t feel sorry at all for O.J. He killed 2 people and I think everyone with intelligence knows that. He still lives a pretty damn nice life on his pensions, so I really don’t feel bad at all.

Nobody said getting away with murder was cheap. By all rights he’s still one lucky mofo.
