Asshat actor/producer/prankster Sacha Baron Cohen recently had a clandestine meeting with OJ Simpson in a Las Vegas hotel room in which he offered the notorious killer a role in his next movie. Disguised in a wig and thick-rimmed glasses, Cohen met with Simpson and gave him $20,000 in a bid to begin negotiations.
According to Page Six:
“O.J. would not even get in the hotel room until he was paid a sackload of cash,” [a] source said.
“There was no way Sacha could have got O.J. into the room without paying money.”
A rep for Cohen could not be reached for comment.
And while Simpson decline to say whether or not he was paid by Cohen, he did tell The Mail,
“I know him well. I met him. Nice guy.”
Of course, if true, the money should be used to pay Simpson’s civil-judgment debt in the Goldman murder case. However, as it was paid in cash and under the table, that’s a different story…
“Paying money — cash no less — in secret to O.J. Simpson is 100 percent unadulterated sleaze,” David Cook, a collections lawyer who works for Goldman’s dad, Fred, said. “This is nuts.”
Nicole Brown Simpson’s sister, Tanya Brown, was horrified that someone might want to pay Simpson.
“Nicole and Ron are two human beings who were brutally murdered,” she told The Mail. “This is not a joke, nor is it entertainment.”
