O.J. Simpson told The Associated Press he participated in the ill-fated "If I Did It" book and interview project for one reason — personal profit, and he acknowledged that any financial gain was "blood money."O.J.'s like, "Hey, it's cool, everyone's doing it. Why can't I be in on the hustle?"
"This was an opportunity for my kids to get their financial legacy," Simpson said in interviews this week with the AP after the book deal was abandoned by its publisher. "My kids understand. I made it clear that it's blood money, but it's no different than any of the other writers who did books on this case."
And O.J. lovers around the world show their support by saying, "Hey, at least he was honest about the blood money."
