OJ Simpson stalked Nicole Brown before her murder, says friend

O.J. Simpson allegedly stalked estranged wife Nicole Brown Simpson prior to her 1994 murder, even going so far as to hide in her bushes, according to a close friend of Brown’s.

Faye Resnick alleges in Lifetime’s upcoming docuseries, “The Life and Murder of Nicole Brown Simpson,” that the former football star “was kind of spying on her a lot because he was realizing that she was becoming happy” after their split, according to a clip obtained by TMZ.

The 66-year-old “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” personality claims Simpson was “stalking, hiding — in the bushes. Actually in the bushes.”

According to Resnick, a fearful Brown allegedly told her to “be careful what you say,” because Simpson was “watching all the time.”

“She always thought he was gonna hurt her,” Resnick says. “She always knew it.”

The two-part documentary premieres Saturday, just ahead of the 30th anniversary of Brown’s murder, and less than two months after Simpson died of prostate cancer at the age of 76.

Per Lifetime, the series will provide “an opportunity for Nicole’s own narrative and voice to be heard in one of the most notorious crimes and trials in history. The project features 50 participants, including those who knew Nicole the best — her friends and family — to shed new light on her life and tragic death.”

Brown and Simpson wed in 1985 and welcomed two kids. In 1989, Simpson was arrested on charges of spousal abuse and pleaded no contest, though Brown later dropped those charges. She filed for divorce in 1992.

Two years later, Brown and friend Ron Goldman were fatally stabbed in a brutal crime for which Simpson was accused but ultimately acquitted.

A civil court later found him liable for their wrongful deaths, ordering Simpson to pay $33.5 million in damages to both victims’ families. However, Goldman’s loved ones say those payments never came.

Having only ever allegedly paid Goldman’s family $133,000 in 1997, Simpson died owing them $114 million due to interest, as their lawyer told People in April.

Simpson was sentenced to prison for more than three decades after he was convicted for the armed robbery of a Las Vegas casino in 2008. He was granted parole in October 2017.
