The sister of murder victim RON GOLDMAN is frustrated by people romantically linking her late brother to OJ Simpson's ex-wife, because they never dated. The former American footballer was acquitted in 1995 of the 1994 murders of Goldman and ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, but a civil jury later found him responsible for their deaths and he was subsequently ordered to pay $33.5 million (GBP17 million) to their families. Ron Goldman was taking a pair of glasses that Simpson had left at a restaurant he was working at to her Brentwood, California house and was killed when he arrived. But Kim Goldman is getting sick of reports mistaking Goldman and Brown Simpson's relationship as anything but platonic. She says, "Contrary to newspaper reports, Nicole and Ron were not dating - I know this because Ron always told me who he was dating. It still irritates me when the press call him 'her boyfriend' or 'her friend' as it seems to diminish him'.
