Paula Deen is getting some unexpected support in the controversy that has cost her endorsements and her Food Network job.

O.J. Simpson is firmly on Deen’s side, says Norman Pardo, who describes himself as the imprisoned football star’s manager. Pardo tells the National Enquirer, “O.J. doesn’t understand what the big deal is with Paula using the ‘n’ word in the past.”

Deen is being sued by Lisa Jackson, former manager at one of her restaurants. Deen admitted in a deposition to using the ‘n’ word.

Simspon ate at Deen’s restaurant The Lady & Sons in 2002 and you can see video of that here on Radar. The restaurant was actually closed but Paula went out of her way to feed O.J. and his pals.

For more details pick up this week’s National Enquirer, on newsstands Friday.
