O.J. "The Juice" Simpson May Squeeze His Way To Parole This Summer

Will "The Juice" be set free this summer?

O.J. Simpson probably hopes that he still has the “Juice” as he approaches his parole hearing set for sometime in July. NBC News announced Monday (May 22) that the former idolized football player will be receiving the actual date for his hearing mid-June, which means a world with a possibly free Orenthal James Simpson by October 2017.

Although the former Buffalo Bills running back was found not-guilty in the “trial of the century” involving the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown and her friend, Ron Goldman, the Goldman family filed a civil lawsuit against Simpson in 1996. The role of the media played a major part in the criminal case, so Judge Hiroshi Fujisaki banned television and still cameras, radio equipment and courtroom sketch artists. Simpson was found liable for the wrongful death and battery of Ron Goldman and battery of Nicole Brown, being ordered to pay $33.5 million in damages.

The charges in which Simpson is currently imprisoned and eligible for parole for include two kidnapping, two robberies and a burglary with a firearm, along with seven other charges. The incident in question involves an armed heist in which Simpson “stole” memorabilia in which he claims was initially taken from his possession. Simpson has been in jail since 2008, carrying out a 33 year-long sentence with a minimum of nine years without parole.

According to Laurie Levenson, a Loyola Law School professor, it's possible that Simpson will be granted parole at his pending July hearing because “previously, they have ranked him as low-risk.” He was denied parole in 2013, and if denied again in July, his next chance will be in 2020 when he is 73 years old.

The Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners will have the options to either “grant release on parole, deny parole at this time and reconsider O.J. for parole at a later date, or deny parole and require O.J. to serve the remainder of his final sentence.”

The former Chairman of the Board stated, “The board members are intelligent professionals and I am confident they will arrive at a very carefully considered decision.”

Nipsey Hussle Involved In L.A. Brawl After Being Mistaken For O.T. Genasis

Nipsey Hussle had a pretty eventful weekend. The rapper was reportedly involved in a brawl outside of a nightclub in West Hollywood on Sunday (Dec. 9). The only problem is, Nipsey wasn't the target; O.T. Genasis was.

The Victory Lap artist was reportedly outside of his girlfriend Lauren London's birthday bash at Nightingale's when the incident occurred. According to TMZ, several men approached Nipsey and his crew in the parking lot. A couple of them reportedly swung on the rapper before security was called to break up the situation.

While the brawl seemed random, but it apparently stemmed from an earlier interaction with O.T. Genasis. Earlier that night, the "Everybody Mad" rapper was reportedly spotted punching a man outside of the nightclub before chopping it up with Nipsey Hussle. TMZ reports that the unidentified man and friends were looking to even the score with O.T. Genasis and got mixed up because both him and Nipsey were wearing plaid shirts on the night of the incident. While it has not been confirmed, the situation looks like a typical case of mistaken identity.

Despite the drama, Nipsey seemed pretty unbothered when TMZ caught up with him outside of LAX. "That's life. We don't give that s**t no attention," Nipsey said about the altercation. "We workin' on music at this point. Do I got any bruises, any scratches? We workin' bro."

Ciara Requests Mediation With Future Over Son's Travel Schedule

Ciara has had enough of the back and forth with her ex Future over their son's travel schedule. Now, she's requesting help from the family court. The singer is reportedly asking the judge to force Future into mediation with her so they can hash out a travel schedule for their four-year-old, Future Jr.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Future has been a flake when it comes to keeping up with his visits with his son. He's allegedly missed scheduled visits and has frequently left baby Future with his mother or grandmother without spending time with him. The "Level Up" artist also noted that the constant traveling has been taxing on her son. So, she wants to figure out a schedule for his own wellbeing.

Ciara's legal team alleges that they attempted to straighten out a schedule without help from a judge, but were unsuccessful. If a judge will not grant a mandatory mediation, Ciara is requesting to settle the matter in a trial hearing.

Ciara and Future have had a very tumultuous relationship throughout the years. The former couple have been in and out of the courts regarding custody and child support. Hopefully, they will reach some middle ground in the new year.
