OJ Simpson has only three months to live as a result of his extreme case of diabetes and unhealthy lifestyle behind bars.
The combination of ‘sky high’ blood pressure, a vastly expanding waistline and a lack of physical activity as he serves a 33-year prison sentence have doctors concerned about his health.
Simpson’s lawyer Ozzie Fumo told MailOnline that he has not heard anything about his client’s poor health.
‘As far as I know his health is very good, he was doing just fine. I just spoke to him on Saturday,’ Mr Fumo said.
‘I spent a lot of time with him preparing for the retrial motion and he never once mentioned diabetes.
‘We discussed health issues, we had meals together, and he seemed fine,’ Mr Fumo told MailOnline.
The first warning flags were raised when Simpson appeared at a hearing in May when the former running-back looked much heavier than he ever had before.
Now The National Enquirer claims that he weighs 300 pounds and prison doctors have encouraged him to exercise and eat more healthfully to combat the high blood pressure and diabetes.
Instead, he is listlessly passing the days by laying in bed in his prison cell and only getting up to get sugar-filled snacks.
‘OJ’s doctors have told him he could be dead in as little as three months because of his out-of-control blood sugar and blood pressure,’ an unidentified prison friend told The Enquirer.
‘But OJ doesn’t care. He knows he’s never going to get out of prison, so he refuses to take care of himself.’
The 33-years he faces following a 2008 robbery are not helping motivate Simpson, as he is now making plans for his death.
He allegedly confessed to murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman in 1994 and told a prison friend that he will write a confession letter that will be sent- and then publicly shared- after he dies.
Mr Fumo countered this claim, saying that in his months of interactions with Simpson he has ‘never once disparaged the Goldmans.’
‘In his mind, they’re creditors along with his children Sydney and Justin,’ Mr Fumo said.
The friends cited by The Enquirer said the double slaying came in a moment of rage that he regrets to this day.
He also reportedly tasked his few close friends with finding ways to hide his remaining $2 million in off-shore accounts so that his son and daughter can access it after his death.
