OJ Simpson attends Gwyneth Paltrow ski collision trial
He’s no stranger to serving in court — or at Utah’s Deer Valley Resort.
OJ Simpson has defended Gwyneth Paltrow in her ongoing ski collision trial, sharing he has also been involved in minor accidents on the same run at the resort.
“I was watching today, I saw the run where her accident happened. It was the same run that my accidents happened in Deer Valley and I don’t know who you can determine whose fault it was,” the former soccer player and former murder suspect said in a video posted on Twitter On Wednesday.
The 50-year-old actress is being sued by retired optometrist Terry Sanderson, 76, who claims she left him with a life-changing brain injury after ramming him in 2016. The Goop founder says it was Sanderson who ran her over.
In his video, Simpson shared his trip to Deer Valley with Nicole Brown Simpson. He was later tried and acquitted of her 1994 murder.
“Deer Valley is a posh place. I never went back mainly because I thought so [the runs] were really tight, certainly a lot tighter than most places I’ve skied,” Simpson said to his more than 800,000 followers.
“But accidents happen when skiing, I don’t know how you can try to sue someone for falling on a ski slope. You see it all the time.”
Reflecting on his own experiences on the slopes during the four-minute video, Simpson recalled how narrow he found the courses, which resulted in him colliding twice with the same woman.
“I’m flying down this runway and at the last minute this lady kind of turns left and she comes all the way over and we fall and we both go down,” Simpson recalled, noting that both ” quite likeable” and asked if the other was doing well.
When they bumped into each other a second time, they weren’t so polite, Simpson said.
“I fell twice on a run with the same woman and if you ask me it was her fault. And I’m sure if you asked her it was my fault,” he said. “I’m just saying, that’s part of skiing. When skiing, you will have accidents. Complain. I do not know how.”
This isn’t the only lawsuit Simpson has strained over the past few months. Earlier this year, Simpson wrongly surmised that Alex Murdaugh would win his trial for the 2021 murders of his wife Maggie and their son Paul.
“I don’t know why they think I’m an expert,” Simpson said giggled in a Twitter video titled “People Keep Asking Me My Opinion on the Alex Murdaugh Trial,” which quickly gained traction online when viewers pointed out the irony of his comment.
Sanderson is seeking $300,000 in damages for the injuries he sustained in the 2016 accident, while Paltrow filed a countersuit seeking $1 in the event of her winnings and to cover her legal costs.
