O.J. SIMPSON DEAD AT 76 after battle with Cancer

O.J. Simpson, one of the most infamous high-profile Americans of all time, is dead after a cancer battle.

The former NFL great — who stood trial for the double-murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman, in the ’90s, only to be acquitted — passed away Wednesday in Las Vegas … this according to his family.

They say he was surrounded by his children and grandchildren when he died Wednesday night. Simpson’s attorney also confirmed his death to TMZ.
