O J Simpson Book Leaked Online–Will TMZ Share with Goldman Family?


Leaks, leaks, leaks. O.J. Simpson’s book, If I Did It, shows up at TMZ, and if it’s the real deal, his ghost-writer had a strong stomach. Sample:

“I noticed the knife in Charlie’s hand, and in one deft move I removed my right glove and snatched it up.”

Simpson knows the word “deft”? Seems so unlikely.

Idle thought: is TMZ, which got a couple zillion hits on this post, going to share revenue with the Goldman family? The family was awarded the rights in Federal court on Monday, and had been rumored to be planning to release the book under the title Confessions of a Double Murderer. Or is Harvey Levin trying to help out by building more buzz?
