He reflected on the upcoming 25th anniversary of the murders of
his former wife and her friend, and the subsequent criminal and
civil trials, in an AP interview early Monday.
Simpson was found not guilty in a criminal trial over the
homicides, but was later found responsible in a civil trial.
He is living healthily and happily in Las Vegas and neither he
nor his children want to look back and talk about the June 12,
1994 slaying of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend
Ronald Goldman, he said to the AP.
"We don't need to go back and relive the worst day of our
lives," he said, adding that it is a subject that "I will never
revisit again. My family and I have moved on to what we call the
'no negative zone.' We focus on the positives."
Simpson served nine years in prison, released in 2017, after a
conviction of robbery and kidnapping in an unrelated case
concerning a dispute over sports memorabilia.
He was acquitted by a jury in 1995 of the slayings of Brown and
Goldman, but later lost a civil wrongful death suit in 1997. A
civil court awarded a $33.5 million judgment against him.
He told the AP that Nevada has been good to him and he is living
life outside of the national spotlight.
