OJ Simpson Dead at 76 After Cancer Battle



O.J. Simpson — one of the most infamous high-profile Americans of all time — is dead after a cancer battle.

The former NFL great passed away Wednesday in Las Vegas … this according to his family.

They say he was surrounded by his children and grandchildren when he died Wednesday night.

O.J. had reportedly been battling prostate cancer in recent years, and his health took a turn for the worse of late — with him landing in hospice care within the past few months.

Word about O.J.’s cancer diagnosis first made the rounds in February, when a local outlet  reported it, although the details were hazy … as was O.J.’s response to the news at the time, when he denied he was in hospice, but didn’t address the cancer report.


Adding to the mystery was the fact O.J. actually touched on a cancer diagnosis in 2023 in a video he posted on X — when he said he’d “caught” some form of cancer, but suggested he’d beaten it. In any case, the cancer came back and claimed his life about a year later. OJ was 76
