Ex-manager Mike Gilbert Claims OJ Simpson Confessed to Killing his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson


Here is the latest in the O. J. Simpson saga. Was it a real confession or someone looking to profit on the misfortune of others? Mike Gilbert, a memorabilia dealer claims in his book, “How I Helped O.J. Get Away With Murder: The Shocking Inside Story of Violence, Loyalty, Regret and Remorse,” that OJ Simpson confessed to killing his ex-wife after he was acquitted.

LOS ANGELES (AP) – A memorabilia dealer who profited from O.J. Simpson for many years is the latest former crony to write a tell-all book, this one alleging a groggy Simpson, high on marijuana, confessed to killing his ex-wife after he was acquitted.

In a soft mumble, Simpson told him: “If she hadn’t opened that door with a knife in her hand … she’d still be alive.”

“Nothing more needed to be said,” Gilbert writes. “O.J. had confessed to me. There’s no doubt in my mind.”

 OJ Simpson’s attorney Yale Galanter stated that Gilbert is “a delusional drug addict who needs money. He’s fallen on very hard times. He is in trouble with the IRS.”

How many years later after this terrible murder and and even worse acquittal and we are still presented with the “ICK” factor from the case. True or false, who knows. However, one thing is for certain … water seeks its own level and the people that OJ hung with back then and after speak volumes of the man.

      Snipet from above
      “Simpson, high on marijuana, confessed to killing his ex-wife after he was acquitted.”

      So who else does that sound like? Marijuana could be the next truth serum.

      Why is it that absolutely no human on the face of this earth with even an average IQ, is NOT going to be surprised to hear this revelation??

      It’s called……DNA does not and did not lie!

      OJ is a dirt bag murderer. Look at his current gf now who has called police on him several times and still stays with him and professes his innocence? What a retard.

      On top of all that, OJ’s 2 children, especially his daughter Sydney is real messed up. She has also had several violent fights with dear old Dad and had to call 911 on his lame, MURDERING ass several times as reported in the mainstream news over the years. Imagine that? Living with your Father who murdered your MOTHER?

      What about restitution for the family of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman?

      Time can never take back or repay the damage already done to so many by this gross injustice.

      OJ is a murderer. Time to pay the piper?? In addition, the criminal trial was a complete CIRCUS and mockery of our justice system thank you to that inept Judge who let the whole thing get waaaayyyyy out of hand with the “dream team”. And, last but certainly not least- let’s not even GO THERE with the “racial card” that OJ’s team also attempted to play up. PUHLEEZE !!!!!!!!!

      There’s an article on the internet that SM should read and report on. It’s called “The Florida/ Hollywood Mob Connection–CIA and OJ Simpson” by Alex Constantine.

      He knows he’s untouchable for what happened to Nicole and Ron. I bought that last book and it was basically a confession.. What was apparent in it, is how narcissist he is. He wanted out, it was all Nicole’s fault, everything she did was bad or wrong, he was the good guy. I often wondered how the 2 kids ever looked at their father without anything, but contempt. Just writing that book and trashing their mother like he does, made me sick.

    5. Bun on May 12th, 2008 6:30 pm

      Interesting….I know OJ can’t be charged for the murder now, but I am wondering if Gilbert could be charged for obstruction of justice.

    6. Patti on May 12th, 2008 8:57 pm

      Good Point, Bun…

      But, isn’t it funny that during the testimony we learned that Nicole kept a knife on the snack bar between her kitchen and living room. It was there when the police searched her townhouse…

      So, once again, he’s lying…

      It was HER fault…

      If only….

      But the truth is that HE brought the knife

      and, though it was never found, the wounds

      to Nicole and Ron matched a knife that O.J.

      had owned for a long time…

      a double edged knife while the knife described

      as being Nicoles was a plain old kitchen knife.


      O.J. = Habitual Liar without a conscience…

      NOTHING is HIS fault… EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    7. Patti on May 12th, 2008 9:03 pm

      Personally, I think he snuck in the back door

      and was watching Nicole when Ron arrived…

      Overcome with jealousy and anger,

      He chased them both out of the house

      throwing Nicole to the ground…

      and goes after Ron.

      At which time he returned to Nicole

      and cut her throat while she was still



      Nicole said that he’d spy on her and I,

      honestly, think that he was inside, not out.


    8. bob on May 12th, 2008 11:13 pm

      Alex Constantine makes a good case that OJ is not guilty.

    9. ken on May 13th, 2008 1:10 am

      13 years later there has not been justice for Nicole and Ron.Boycott Los Angeles county.J4N@R!!!

    10. brenda on May 13th, 2008 9:13 am

      Patti, Sadly I am sure Nichole was awake. I once read another “confession” by OJ where he said to someone…”what do you want me to come out and say? That I cut her throat and watched her eyes roll back into her head?”

      Disgusting I know, but that sounds like she was awake. OJ will get what’s coming to him in the next life (or death in his case).

    11. rita griffin on May 13th, 2008 11:10 am

      I agree with ‘a new girl’, that the trial was a mockery of our justice system. I always knew he was guilty, and I think the jurors & judge should be ashamed. It should be on there conscience that those poor kids have to deal with oj in there lives at all. Oj should be locked away, awaiting his execution. How long before he kills again?

    12. brie. on May 13th, 2008 11:18 am

      Makes me sick to even look at the murderer….why the kids didn’t stay with their grandparents, I’ll never know….

      I recall reading that his daughter wanted a car and OJ said but then spent money on his girlfriend’s breast implant….

    13. Patti on May 13th, 2008 12:58 pm


      Self-Indulgent Pleasures of the Flesh…

      He’s a real piece of work.

      And to think that he ran away,

      leaving the door open with his children sleeping.

      Whether she was alive or dead when he

      gave her the final blow… matters not to me.

      My point was that his Bronco was parked in

      the back, because he had the key she had lost

      days earlier… and he was INSIDE the house…

      watching her. Ron, not sure of which way to run,

      ran into the fenced cage, but Nicole was running

      down the sidewalk.

      Ron ran back out first, and tried to help Nicole,

      but was no match to O.J. He did manage to grab

      a glove. Remember where it was found.

      My point…

      He’s lying, trying to insinuate

      that he had to kill her with her own knife…

      as if his life was in danger.

      She didn’t have a knife when she answered the door

      and it wasn’t O.J. at the door, either, it was


      Upon hearing O.J. coming they ran OUT…

      NOT In.

      O.J. was the only one with a knife.


      The Boogeyman!

    14. Miss Katie on May 13th, 2008 2:12 pm

      is a disgusting piece of crap!!
      he took the only stability that his children had.
      for what… from what is told in the media… he wasnt that great of a role model to sydney and justin.. makes me wonder if they are allowed to visit their grandparents on the mothers side..
      now they are adults I am wondering if now they even communicate with the grandparents…he is arrogant like joran….
      why did he have to kill them … jealousy???
      Its been along time since it happened but i can still remember the media frenzy.. I thought he would be found guilty
      what a pity he didnt get convicted and given the death penalty.. how very tragic.. and sad for the two kids left behind…

    15. Vfreddog on May 13th, 2008 7:36 pm

      what absolutely gets me is trying to find anything on FoxSports or other websites. Someone confessing to murder is no longer news. It’s just another in a long string of tragic events for that family. And whoever said that OJ will get his in the next life… I believe that too. Somehow, he will pay for what he has done. Unfortunately, in the meantime, every whose life he has damaged is paying and paying and paying as well.

    16. Patti on May 13th, 2008 8:41 pm

      Miss Katie:

      He had always told Nicole that what she did while he was in New York, and elsewhere, broadcasting; was her business. But… he didn’t want her dating anyone when he was around. With O.J., I think it was more about power and control, but there is no doubt that he got jealous and possessive of her and couldn’t STAND to see her with another man.

      I liked her and her family. She deserved alot better than him, but she was so much younger… only 18 when they met. She was mezmerized by his fame and easily influenced because of their age difference. He preyed on her.

      So sad…

    17. Valerie on May 14th, 2008 3:37 pm

      I have read this book, and it is actually pretty incredible. I know, we all know OJ did it, it is awful (to say the least), it was a travesty of the justice system. BUT, and I know I sound CRAZY, but Mike Gilbert’s book is really good. I think they went with the wrong headline here. Yes, he confesses in the book, but Mike goes into so much more. How Mike deceived the jury by making the glove not fit, why he did what he did for OJ, how they made money in jail, etc. After reading the book, 2 and 2 just make 4. You see how OJ got away with it and why he acts like he does–because he has enablers like Mike Gilbert and the other three in O.J’s inner circle helping him live in a world without consequences. This book may be about OJ Simpson, but oddly and crazy enough it is a very human story. I know I sound crazy and sympathetic, but I promise, this book is a whole a new ball game and perspective on the OJ Simpson case. You just have to get past the cover and title.

    18. Sweet_thang on May 14th, 2008 6:09 pm

      I clearly recall when that POS simpson was found not guilty in that mockery of justice “trial”. The disgusting smug look on his face when they announced the verdict, knowing he had just literally gotten away with murder. What a load of crap!

      I also recall the rumors that Robert Kardashian, one of oj’s many attorneys, was allegedly the one who ditched OJ’s suitcase containing his bloody murder clothes (and perhaps the murder weapon). Another of the long line of enablers, whose children have since gone on to fame and fortune, doing a sex tape, a reality show, a Playboy spread. The wheels of justice grind exceedingly fine…except for this case!

      I guess my disgust with the oj debacle has continued unabated, and one group I blame is the prosecutors, who in my opinion lost the case at jury selection. Had that same jury been empaneled in a trial of the Duke lacrosse team (i.e. the infamous rape hoax – does any sane person on the planet doubt their complete innocence?), there is little doubt all would be doing 30 years right now. How does a group of seasoned prosecutors, with a mountain of damaging inculpatory evidence, allow such a profoundly biased jury to be selected?

      And of course the prosecutors also went on to to benefit from the notoriety of the case, despite their bumbling ineptitude, writing books, doing paid TV appearances, etc.

      It is one of the major sham trials of my lifetime, and I just turned 60.

      Holy shit, where’s the Tylenol?

      #18- Sweet-Thang….Yeah, No kidding…pass the Tylenol, please !….lol

      OJ IS A MURDERER- Worst celebrity murder case in American History.

    20. Sweet_thang on May 15th, 2008 9:48 am

      New Girl:

      That’s a big 10-4!

    21. A New Girl on May 15th, 2008 4:19 pm

      P.S. Robert Kardashian is a shady character…and like you said- his dumbass daughter sold her smut on the internet for $$$$….now they have a Reality Show on TV…lol

      What does America need to see another dysfunctional family for on prime-time? To what purpose does any of this serve??

      OJ’s career has been long over since the murder trial….he is basically living off of his NFL pension. Perhaps he will finally do some prison time after his latest escapade in Vegas. His name is dirt…pretty much most people know that he killed Nicole Brown & Ron Goldman….amazing what good attorneys and money can do though—get a guilty man off of a double-homicide charge….Unbelievable.

      Have any of you read Mike Gilbert’s book, I helped O.J get away with murder? This man is asking for forgiveness so he can live in peace with himself! Ha Ha! This isn’t a matter of forgiveness Mr. Gibert! THIS MAKES YOU A CRIMINAL JUST LIKE O.J. 1. YOU ARE AN ACCOMPLICE TO MURDER 2. YOU SHOULD BE CHARGE WITH OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE AND 3. PURGERY….You are also getting away with murder.

      The only way you will be able to sleep at night and be at peace with yourself, is to pay for your crimes. GO TO PRISON, PAY FOR ALL YOUR CRIMINAL ACTIONS! Then justice will be served and you will THEN be at peace. YOU ALSO NEED TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR CRIMINAL ACTIONS!!!!!

    23. Katy Hendrik on March 27th, 2014 4:27 pm

      I have met with Mike Gilbert, he is a very arrogant kind of man. Him and I had gotten intoxicated, but he did explain the story to me and he does want forgiveness. He wants people to know the truth and understand why. Him and O.J. were very close, he was told no he did not do it by O.J. himself! So wouldn’t we all believe a good friend? But being in court seeing the evidence.. He finally woke up and smelled the coffee.. But how could he betray O.J. in the middle of all this chaos. He deals with his own demonds everyday! I am not saying it was right for what he did, But it was his job!
