Considering the scary-dramatic post-football life of O.J. Simpson, it’s hardly the worst news the former running back/TV pitchman has ever been associated with. But when you’re sitting in a Nevada jail doing 9 to 33 years for kidnapping and armed robbery, it can get tricky to pay the bills.
So it’s not terribly surprising that “The Juice’s” Miami-area home is facing foreclosure.
According to the Associated Press, JP Morgan filed papers on the 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom home in the Kendall real estate market. Miami-Dade Circuit Court documents show the foreclosure notice was filed in September. Simpson’s legal team has filed a motion to dismiss the action, which is pending.
After his 1995 acquittal of the murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman, Simpson migrated from Los Angeles to Florida, purchasing the house in 2000 for $575,000. The Kendall-area property allowed Simpson, now 64, access to the South Florida golf courses.
