RadarOnline.com has learned the fallen football hero made the bombshell revelations to his pal Thomas Scotto, who revealed the truth in the last weeks of his life.
With his dying breaths, Scotto shared the chilling details of Simpson’s bloody rampage, and claimed the disgraced football star flipped out after spying beautiful blond Brown Simpson with Goldman at her Brentwood home, and stabbed both to death.
“In his own words, Tom told me, ‘O.J. went berserk, ran to his car, got the knife and came back,’” journalist Allison Kugel — who was writing a book about O.J. with Scotto — told Radar. “Tom said, ‘After O.J. did Nicole, he had no choice but to take care of Goldman.’”
What’s more, Scotto said Simpson’s confession “didn’t come out right away and it didn’t come out in a casual manner,” Kugel told Radar. “It was more like a serious confidential conversation, and Tom said O.J. cried several times. He said, ‘O.J. cried more than once.’”
The guilt-ridden “Juice” also dropped another bombshell, according to Scotto, who died of a respiratory infection on March 21 at the age of 56 — before the book was completed. Simpson’s then-24-year-old son Jason witnessed the aftermath of the brutal June 1994 double slaying, said Kugel.
“Tom said Jason showed up afterward,” Kugel continued. “But O.J. told Jason, ‘Get the f--- out of here!’ because ‘there was no cleaning the murder up.’”
Brown Simpson was found with numerous stab wounds and nearly decapitated from a slit throat.
Scotto said Jason had headed to Brown Simpson’s house shortly before the murders because he was afraid “something bad was going to go on,” Kugel said.
Renowned legal expert Peter Gleason told Radar that Jason, now 48, could face charges “if he participated in any part of the murder.”
“If police were to re-open the investigation, this kid could be subject to questioning,” he said.
This isn’t the first time Jason — one of three children Simpson had with first wife Marguerite Whitley — has been associated with the murders.
Bondsman Miguel Pereira claimed a drunken Simpson once told him Jason instigated the bloodshed by attacking Goldman, who had slighted his dad.
Simpson allegedly told Miguel “all Jason was trying to do is protect me.”
Scotto supported Simpson at his parole hearing in Nevada last July, and invited the ex-con to live at his Naples, Fla., home after he was released in October after serving nine years of a 33-year prison sentence for a 2007 botched armed robbery at a Las Vegas hotel.
But in a twist, three weeks before his death, Scotto said his motive for revealing Simpson’s deathbed confession had more to do with revenge than a book deal.
Scotto said that shortly before Christmas 2017, he learned Simpson, who had served as best man at his second wedding in 2007, had bragged about sleeping with his then-fiancée.
An insider told Radar: “O.J. seduced Scotto’s wife before they got married, and he blames O.J. for their divorce.”
Scotto’s second ex-wife now lives abroad.
Before he passed away, Scotto told Radar: “After everything I did for O.J., that was a complete betrayal. I was a brother to him!”
