O.J. Simpson, beaten bloody in a prison melee? Did HBO bring back the TV show Oz? Um, no, apparently. The Nevada Department of Corrections is denying a report by the National Enquirer that Simpson was beaten up by a prison gang. The Enquirer quotes Simpson’s former business partner, Bruce Fromong, saying that Simpson was attacked at the Nevada prison in which he was incarcerated in 2008, and had to spend three weeks in the infirmary. The report, which has been picked up by the Huffington Post and CBS Sports, among others, says that Simpson is now afraid to leave his cell.

Inmates cheered as a muscular young skinhead knocked [Simpson] to the ground, punching and kicking him to a bloody pulp and inflicting injuries so severe he secretly spent nearly three weeks in the infirmary before he recovered.

But Nevada Department of Corrections spokesman Kevin Ingram quickly debunked the report, telling FOX5 there is no truth to the article and Simpson is “just fine.”

Simpson is serving 9-33 years at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Northern Nevada for the armed robbery of a sports memorabilia dealer in 2007.

    Here we go again! America satisfy your appetite once more by climbing on board again the OJ Simpson roller coaster of racial animus and hostility courtesy of that moonwatcher’s rag, “National Enquirer”. Main stream news outlets don’t be late get your front row seats. Wow!! It’s simply unbelievable they can do it again. But now a new 540+ page tell all book by one of Simpson’s private investigative organization, OMIG, members reveals a lot of evidence that was concealed from the public in the Simpson trial. “Pursuit of Exhibit 35 in the OJ Simpson Murder Trial and its Hidden Secrets” by T.H. Johnson is just hitting bookshelves through books and Amazon’s Kindle Digital Book online services. It’s definitely a shocker that Johnnie Cochran, Fred Goldman, and Lou Brown have a lot of explaining to do.
