Sacha Baron Cohen Pays OJ Simpson $20K to Appear in Film

O.J. Simpson attends a parole hearing at Lovelock Correctional Center in Lovelock Nevada

The former National Football League baller has landed a small part in a new movie by British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, best known for playing the irreverent fictional character, Borat.

A source explained that 'O.J. wouldn't even get in the hotel until he was paid a sack load of cash.

A lawyer for Goldman's father, Fred, told Fox News, "Paying money, cash no less, in secret to O.J. Simpson is 100 percent unadulterated sleaze.This is nuts".

Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen has come under fire for reportedly paying convicted armed robber OJ Simpson £15,000 to appear in a prank for his new film.

Simpson was released from jail in October a year ago. I met him. Nice guy.' But he refused to confirm whether he was paid a fee.

Nicole Brown's sister Tanya said last night: 'Nicole and Ron are two human beings who were brutally murdered.

We recently reported on how exhausted Simpson is of Fred Goldman dragging him to court every time he thinks O.J.is making money.

Although the Heisman Trophy victor and NFL Hall of Fame running back was famously acquitted of charges that he murdered his ex-wife, Nicole, and her friend Goldman in 1994, a civil jury found Simpson liable for the slayings and ordered him to pay $25 million to the two families - a penalty that has largely been ignored by O.J.

The Daily Mail has allegedly reported that the disgraced actor and athlete met with Borat and Brüno director Sacha Baron Cohen in Las Vegas.

Simpson's legal team say that the juice "wishes to readjust to civilian life and family life".

The Mail on Sunday approached Simpson on Friday as he enjoyed a leisurely two-hour lunch with friends at the Grape Street wine bar in Summerlin, Las Vegas, near to the £1.5 million mansion in a gated community which is being loaned to him by a businessman friend.

While Simpson may be eager to weasel his way back into the limelight, he's staying mum for now. And it's on the house.
