In a bombshell world exclusive, RadarOnline.com has uncovered never-before-seen video of O.J. Simpson confessing the truth about what his ex-girlfriend, Paula Barbieri, really knew about the murders that changed his life forever. What's more, in the jaw-dropping clip, Simpson claims that Barbieri demanded he pay her one million dollars in hush money to keep quiet!
Radar's never-before-seen exclusive footage was shot at Simpson's Rockingham mansion on September 17, 1997, a day before the bank seized the property, and a year after a jury acquitted the former NFL star of the brutal murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.
Wearing a red, white and blue Riviera Country Club polo shirt in the clip, Simpson goes from sitting in the driver's seat of his black SUV to removing a flag from a pole in his yard, all while discussing Barbieri's alleged attempt to blackmail him into buying her silence. Barbieri was scheduled to appear on a talk show at the time.
"I can't wait to see what Paula's going to say," Simpson says to his then-agent Mike Gilbert in the video.
Gilbert explains Barbieri will probably respond to those who wonder why she didn't "tell anyone" about the murders.
Simpson speculates, "Paula says, 'Well I don't know. If it was true, that meant I was in love with a murderer.' Whatever that meant."
"It's that same old titillating thing," he rants.
Simpson then drops the bombshell: He believes that Barbieri is going to lie on the show, and he claims that she tried to make him pay her an exorbitant amount of money to stay quiet.

"They're going to say 'And you took no money?' They forget that when I went down there, Paula wanted $1 million," he says, laughing, "Wasn't like she didn't wanted any money, she wanted more money!"
When news of the slayings broke, Barbieri had distanced herself from Simpson, claiming that she broke up with him via voicemail on the night of the murders. She said that may have set him off in a rage.
"She says she left you a 15 minute message on your car phone," Gilbert reminds Simpson in the video, and he hits back hard.
"First of all, the police know that's not true because they looked at my voicemail and there's not a 15-minute phone call," he claimed. "They checked my messages, and they know there's no 15-minute message … We've got the records of how long a message was."
"You can't leave a message longer than 1 minute," Gilbert says. But then, shockingly, Simpson suggests that he DID listen to such a message.
"I didn't get the message until later," he admits. " What do they mean they didn't tell anybody? That was all in the records of the case. All total sh*t that was in the record of the case."
