According to The National Enquirer, "O.J. says his memory is slipping and he gets painful headaches and other symptoms. He began suffering dizzy spells; nausea, lapses in memory - and the frightening symptoms continue to get worse. He put off the doctors for weeks after he first started experiencing the symptoms because he was afraid of what they would find. Now the prison docs are telling him they believe he has a brain tumour. They plan to run a series of tests on him, MRIs and CT scans."
66 years old O.J. Simpson has poor health. He not only has a brain tumor but he also happens to be an extreme diabetes patient. Simpson was sentenced to 33 years’ imprisonment in 2008, with a minimum of nine years without parole. He is currently serving his sentence at the Lovelock Correctional Centre. And he can not be granted parole for another four years.
But O.J. Simpson has allegedly written a letter to President Obama. He wrote, "Mr. President, I know my life is coming to an end. Please, don't let me die in prison. I feel the end coming. But I don't want to die in prison like common jailhouse scum."
