Although the murder of Nicole Brown happened over 20 years ago, the world is completely obsessed with the trial once again, thanks to the FX series American Crime Story. The show, which was created by the incredible Ryan Murphy, is ridiculously good. Murphy, who is best known for shows like Nip Tuck, Glee, Scream Queens and American Horror Story, has done an incredible job bringing this iconic case back to life.
Although the show is about the murder case, you can't help but be curious about everyone involved in the case, especially O.J. Simpson. O.J. is known as a lot of things, and his life has been extremely public for quite some time. However, like everyone else, there are some things about him that the world doesn’t know. The following is a list of ten things you most likely didn’t know about O.J., not the case but him as a person.
There is no denying that Simpson has lived an interesting and eventful life and whether or not you believe he committed the murder of his ex wife, there is a fascination that comes with the name O.J. Simpson, which is why we at TheRichest wanted to learn more about him.

8 He Wrote a Book Entitled “If I Did It”
In 2007, O.J.’s book If I Did It: Confessions Of The Killer was published and it had America talking. The title itself is disturbing enough, and for those of you who haven’t read it, here is a little synopsis of what it's about.
The first parts are about his relationships with different women in his life, including Brown. Simpson goes on to write in numerous different ways how Brown was an instigator. Then the book goes on to describe what “hypothetically” happened that night if O.J. had killed her. He also describes his conversations with police, the Bronco chase and the aftermath of the murders.

1 He is Pigeon Toed
The most random and one of the least known facts about O.J. is that he in pigeon-toed. When O.J. Simpson was only two years of age, he contracted rickets. Rickets, which is the softening and weakening of children’s bones, usually occurs when there is a deficiency of vitamin D. Not only did he contract the disease but he had a very bad case of it. This disease left him both pigeon-toed and bow-legged. This is probably the last thing anyone knows about Mr. Simpson and it is something he has been living with since the age of two. Pretty impressive that after such a traumatic bone disease, he went off to be professional athlete!
