OJ Simpson will never cease to be a mysterious, intriguing, and infamous figure in the eyes of the public; not long after stepping back into the media’s attention, many ghosts of OJ’s past have begun coming back to haunt him, including his ex-girlfriend Christie Prody. Now 38 years old, Christie claims that OJ would constantly threaten her and, over the course of their relationship, attempt to brainwash her and bend her to his will.
Christie was OJ’s longtime girlfriend after he was acquitted of the murders of his ex-wife and Ron Goldman many, many years ago. In a new interview that aired Tuesday, Christie hung all her dirty laundry out to dry, and the statements made were quite intense.
“He would say things to me like, ‘You better watch out so something bad doesn’t happen to you like Nicole,’” she told Inside Edition — as reported by Radar Online. “I was young and so he could try to shape me, mold me, into what he wanted [….] “I had to take a double take,” she continues, commenting on his weight. “I can’t believe he’s gotten a lot bigger and very grey since I last saw him.”
A source close to the situation tells Radar that “She had her problems that’s for sure. Some were made public and some weren’t. She liked the fame and O.J. had money. There was a lot of partying going on.”
It’s hard to know what is true and what isn’t, and it’s probably no surprise that she’s just trying to get back another minute or two of fame. People love that limelight. What do you think about Christie’s interview? Do you believe her statements? Was OJ attempting to brainwash Christie, and did she truly have something to fear while together with the ex-football star? Sound off in the comments section below.
