O.J. Simpson Second Marriage
Arnelle’s parents married in 1967 and after spending twelve years together, they eventually divorced in 1979. Two years before the divorce was finalized, her father O.J. Simpson started dating his future wife Nicole Brown. The couple tied the knot on 2 February 1985, having welcomed two children, Sydney Brooke Simpson and Justin Ryan Simpson. The couple divorced in 1992.
Arnelle Involved in O.J. Simpson Murder Trial
Arnelle came to prominence for being involved in the murder trial of her father O.J. Simpson in 1994, when he was charged with the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Lyle Goldman.
The trial gained international publicity because of O.J.’s former popularity, and was called ‘the Trial of the Century’. Arnelle testified in support of her father, and devoted herself completely to release him from prison. At the time, she was 26 years old and stated that her father was quite distraught, emotional and out of control. In October 1995, the case resulted in acquittal of the charges; however, it was later decided in a civil case that he was responsible. In 2007, her father credited her as the brainchild of his book, entitled “If I Did It”.
O.J. Simpson Accused of Robbery
In 2008, her father was accused of robbery in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Once again, she stood by her father and even guaranteed two times that he was not-guilty. Although she defended him, Simpson was found guilty of planning the robbery and was sentenced to spend from 9 to 33 years in jail. After serving nine years, O.J. Simpson was granted parole on 20 July 2017, when Arnelle gave an emotional testimony – he was eventually released on 1 October of the same year.
