O.J. Simpson is on a rampage to kill a tell-all book by his former prison cellmate and confidant, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
Reps for the fallen NFL star allegedly offered $5,000 to Vernon Nelson — who shared a cell with “The Juice” between 2015 and 2016 — in a desperate bid to buy his silence.
Sources said Vernon, who is serving a 20-year sentence for assault and battery, rejected the cash offer to turn over his book, “O.J.’s Life Behind Bars.”
The convict has promised the page-turner will get down and dirty about O.J.’s life at Nevada’s Lovelock Correctional Center, where he served nine years for robbery and kidnapping.
What’s more, O.J.’s former longtime manager, Norman Pardo, told Radar the now-71-year-old also unsuccessfully tried to pull the plug on his own soon-to-be-released documentary, “Who Killed Nicole?”
O.J. beat the murder rap, but then landed behind bars following the botched 2007 robbery.
As Radar has reported, O.J. is now partying hearty while living like a king in Las Vegas.
