O.J. Simpson has confessed to killing his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, claims the National Enquirer in a riveting, though specious “exclusive.”

According to the magazine, Simpson is prepared to tell Oprah, on camera, that he stabbed his ex and Goldman to death back in June 1994. Actually, reports the Enquirer, Simpson already confessed to one of the TV titan’s producers.

An Enquirer “insider” quotes Simpson as telling the producer, “Tell Oprah that yes, I did it. I killed Nicole, but it was in self-defense. She pulled a knife on me and I had to defend myself.” OK… but why confess now, 17 years after it happened? Supposedly, Simpson, currently in jail for nine to 33 years for armed robbery and kidnapping, “wants to go out in a blaze of glory – giving his confession… to the most famous TV interviewer of all time,” explains the tab’s “insider.”

The football legend allegedly gave Oprah’s producer an incredible recounting of June 12, 1994, when the famous murders occurred. After being snubbed earlier that day by Nicole at their daughter Sydney‘s middle school recital, Simpson supposedly “worked himself into an absolute rage” and decided to confront his ex-wife at her Brentwood apartment.

Simpson supposedly says he drove to the residence and started pounding on the door and yelling. According to the former football great, Nicole opened the door and allegedly started waving a kitchen knife and “lunging at me.”

The Enquirer then claims Simpson recalled, “I was in such a rage that something just snapped. I couldn’t take her constant taunting of me with other men or her using drugs and drinking while my kids were living with her. I went berserk! Before I knew what I was doing, I took the knife away from Nicole and started slashing at her. I cut her over and over again until she was lifeless.”

Wow. Moments later, Goldman arrived and supposedly also lunged at Simpson. “I stabbed him over and over again. He was very strong and nearly overpowered me. He was trying to kill me,” Simpson is said to have told Oprah’s producer. “Finally, he slumped to the ground – dead. Killing Nicole and Goldman were acts of self-defense,” Simpson is quoted as saying in the Enquirer.

If Oprah actually had Simpson on camera confessing to the double murder, or even plans for such a bombshell interview, it would be enormous news. But that’s not the case. The conversation between Simpson and the “producer” never happened. There was no shocking confession, no grisly account of events, and no promise to put it on television.

“It’s not true,” a rep for Oprah tells Gossip Cop. While the talk show queen has noted in the past that Simpson would be her dream interview, the Enquirer‘s latest offering is simply something the tabloid dreamed up.
