LATEST: The rights to O.J. SIMPSON's controversial book IF I DID IT have been snapped up by the family of RON GOLDMAN, whose murder the star was controversially cleared of.
The former American football star was due to release the book - in which he hypothetically places himself at the scene of the murders of his wife Nicole Brown and her friend Goldman in 1994 - last year (06), but it was withdrawn by its publisher 10 days before its launch.
A court-appointed bankruptcy trustee sold the media rights, movie rights and copyright to the family after a settlement was reached on Monday (02Jul07), with the rights held in the name of Ron Goldman LLC. Goldman's estate must pay the trustee 10 per cent of the first $4 million (GBP2 million) grossed by the publication, and a percentage of all additional profits.
David Cook, the Goldman's attorney, says, "Ron Goldman LLC will own Simpson's name, likeness, signature and story and will hawk it to satisfy this terrible judgment. Justice has arrived in Miami." He adds the book will be renamed Confessions Of A Double Murder.
However, Simpson's lawyer, Yale L. Galanter insists the bankruptcy trustee has no right to sell the rights to If I Did It on behalf of his client.
