The life of O.J. Simpson has taken another strange turn today.
Simpson’s former best friend and longtime confidante Tom Scotto has passed away at the age of 56.
To understand just how bizarre Simpson and Scotto’s relationship was, we need only to look at the last few months of both men’s lives.
In October of 2017 Simpson was released from prison on robbery charges.
At the time of his release, Scotto offered to allow Simpson to move into his palatial home in Naples, Florida.
Scotto publicly rescinded the offer shortly thereafter, alleging that he recently learned Simpson had slept with his then-wife in 2007.
Shortly after that, Scotto was hospitalized due to complications from pneumonia.
Just nine days ago, Scotto spoke with Radar Online and informed the outlet that his health was on the upswing.
He claimed was soon to be moved out of the intensive care unit with the eventual goal of returning home.
Two days later, however, Scotto signed a “do not resuscitate” order after his health took yet another turn for the worse.
Today, family and friends were shocked by the new that Scotto had passed away.
“Tom Scotto died of the broken heart because O.J. slept with the man’s wife!” a source close both Scotto and Simpson tells Radar.
“O.J. only cares about himself but with Scotto’s death, he’s going to feel like sh-t!”
“It’s desperately sad Tom and O.J. didn’t settle their differences before he died, but now everyone’s worried what O.J. might do. He can behave all crazy and has an awful temper,” says a second source.
The tipster included a chilling (thought likely apocryphal) account of Scotto’s final moments:
“Scotto’s last words were ‘O.J. took everything away from me and I don’t want to live anymore,'” the insider alleges.
Obviously there’s no way to confirm that particular claim, but in his final interview – just days before his death – Scotto made his contempt for Simpson abundantly clear:
“After everything I did for O.J., that was complete betrayal,” Scotto said of the allegation that Simpson slept with his ex-wife.
“I was a brother to him.”

SO. MUCH. TEA.
It’s hard to believe it’s been over a decade since Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey called it quits on their marriage. However, it appears as though those who worked on the former flames’ MTV show, Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica, saw warning signs about the pair’s doomed relationship.
Thankfully, a producer for the early ’00s hit is now opening up about what it was like to work with Nick and Jessica. Oooh, go on!
For an interview with Complex, Sue Kolinsky got VVV candid about her time as a producer for all three seasons of Newlyweds. On what it was like filming the show’s final season (which aired just before the pop stars’ high profile divorce), the industry vet dished:
“You could feel there was tension between the two of them… They were very different people. He was a blue-collar guy — he did a lot of things himself, like he and his brother [Drew Lachey] would build things. He was frugal, and she had excessive taste.”
Makes sense. Don’t forget, Jessica was only 22 when she wed the 98 Degrees alum. In regards to the demise of Nick and Jessica’s marriage, Sue continued:
“In the end they weren’t suited for each other. The only thing they really had in common was their music. She was really young. … He wanted a family, and her father thought maybe she was too young. Her father was very involved in her life.”
Joe Simpson?? ~Shocker.~
Although, Kolinsky had “no idea” who the blonde pop princess was before agreeing to be the program’s producer. Nonetheless, once she saw footage of Simpson’s infamous “chicken or fish” query, she knew they had reality TV gold. After defending that the Lacheys’ show was reality TV “at its purest form,” the producer explained:
“As soon as we started looking at the footage and I saw the ‘Is this chicken or fish?’ [scene], I knew it was going to be a really fun ride… [Nick & Jessica] were perfect because they were polar opposites. They were beautiful, and without even realizing it, they were very funny.”
Don’t even get Sue started on the reality of Jessica’s “dumb blonde” persona. On Ashlee Simpson‘s sister’s intelligence, Kolinsky admitted:
“There were times when we were like, ‘Hm, does she really not know what this means?’ I truly believe the whole ‘chicken & fish’ situation was accurate. She really did not know… I remember there was a scene where there was a dead mouse by their pool and it had been dead for a while. Nick said, ‘it’s in rigor mortis’ and Jessica said, ‘Riga-what?’ I truly believe she didn’t know what that meant.”
OMG. We’re dying.
Does anyone else feel blessed after reading all these truth bombs?? HA![Image via Twitter/WENN.]
After being diagnosed with prostate cancer in September and beginning radiation treatment in February, Joe Simpson is officially cancer-free!
“It worked! The cancer went away and he’s doing great!”
The insider went on:
“He has a new lease on life. His kids are obviously so happy. There is always a chance [the cancer] can come back, of course, but doctors are optimistic.”
We’re sure this is a huge sigh of relief for the whole Simpson squad!
