Plenty o' Juice -- O.J. Raked in $1.2 Mil from 2003-05!

10/23/2007 8:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Apparently, being found liable for the deaths of two people and making millions aren't mutually exclusive: O.J. Simpson made nearly $400,000 in income from his NFL pensions every year from 2003 to 2005, for a total of $1.2 million, and even earned $50,000 from what he calls "appearances," according to tax returns released to the father of Simpson victim Ron Goldman -- and obtained by TMZ.
OJ Simpson
Fred Goldman's lawyer, David Cook, tells TMZ that what he's really interested in is the $772,090 in "personal property" that O.J. claims on his 2005 return, because the pensions are exempt from the $33.5 million judgment that Fred won in 1997 -- and which they've been trying to collect ever since. Cook says he's not sure what the "personal property" consists of, but says he'll be going after it.

"He's a very wealthy man sitting on a lot of assets," says Cook of Simpson. "Meanwhile, Mr. Goldman is a 67-year-old working man." Cook says that they're attempting to seize Simpson's Florida house, and will investigate the $50,000 in gross income that Simpson claimed in 2003 and 2004.

To put O.J.'s yearly pension into perspective, Simpson made a reported $733,000 in 1978, when he was the highest-paid player in the NFL, nearly doubling Joe Namath's pay.

Simpson's lawyer didn't immediately return calls for comment. Just last week, the State of California Franchise Tax Board revealed that O.J. owes $1.4 million in back taxes.

i think the goldmans are media whores...not that i think oj is much better...but honestly...how far will a person go to and let bitterness reign in their life...

will it ever bring him back...NO...and what about Nicole's family....THEY REFUSED to even share the stage on OPRAHs show over this nasty book the GOLDMANS PUBLISHED......bitterness and hate make very cold companions and sucks all the compassion and love from your life... IS it really worth it...

God! I love Vegas. Teach us out there that law produces order, that murderers should be punished. Judge Simpson on the merits of his crime and them throw away the key. He's made fools of us way too long.

Godmans' want 15 minutes of fame..that is so ridiculous. They never sought out the media unless it was to smear and remind people that a vicious killer went free. The people who think that Fred wants publicity or is seeking fame..get real. I know why Fred publshed that book OJ was hoping to hawk..OJ is a sociopath and it must kill him a little bit everyday knowing he has to lose something to the Goldman's...KEEP AT IT FRED...you are a reminder to us all that your son and a beautiful young mom was murdered by OJ SIMPSON.

One other thing..why should Fred think or care about Sidney and Justin. They ar nothing to Fred except 2 people who should speak up and tell what they know.They are adults now. They are surely capable of understanding what went on and they most certainly heard things over the years. They aren't children who need shielding. Good god they lived with the psycho OJ so why would Fred care about these people when their own father doesn't care. Get real.

cry me a river...
How much did OJ care about Sydney and Justin (his own flesh and blood, by the way) when he brutally murdered their mother?

59. The Goldmans only get 17 cents for each book sold. They are NOT in it for the money. I'm sure they would trade everything to get Ron back. They want the world to know how sick and disgusting that murderer is and since he's always flaunting his life, they want to make him pay and ruin his life. The only reason the Browns have "moved on" is because of OJs kids. They need to keep that connection.

If Mr Goldman keeps this up,I wonder who might be the next one on OJ's list. Mr Goldman you might want to leave this man alone. It sounds to me you are as stupid as your son was

Mister Goldperson, give it up and stop crying, your son was a stranger to you.

The man , ( oj) was found not guilty, end of story, these civil law suites are a joke.

Ask Robert Blake, he's laughing about the hookers family who are waiting for his hard earned money.

Percy, #46......... Thanks for your response to my post. The lack of blood evidence and the short amount of time involved just did not add up. O.J. was driving down the freeway eating a burger, all of a sudden just happened to take a few minutes to kill two people, drive home, shower, dress and in a limo on his way to the airport - all this in an extreamly short period of time. So much blood at the crime scene and the clothes and weapon was never recovered. The few traces of blood at his house and in his auto could have been due to sloppy police work (or maybe even planted in my opinion) or could have been there before the murders - after all, Nicole had lived in that house and rode in that auto. I try to be a fair and reasonable person - I watched and listened and there is no way I could come close to thinking that O.J. was guilty of those murders. Very few people feel that way - but I do and always have. Most everyone involved in this case reached success beyond any dream they could have ever had, but they had to destroy O.J. to get there. To me they all just seem evil, greedy, ugly and envious.

Goldman had no time for his gay son but has been trying to capitalize on his death for over a decade. To hell with the Goldmans and those low life Browns. OJ supported them in exchange for marrying their underage whore of a gold-digging daughter. To hell with all of them (OJ included)!

Just wondering again...    

It seems to me that this guy would have been much better off had he just taken the fve million dollar settlement deal that Simpson offered him in he first place instead of chasing down every dollar OJ Simpson makes for the rest of his life. That is probably more than he will ever collect from him - especially now. He will never get the money OJ collects as pension funds because they cannot be used to satisfy a debt. He could have been done with this and moved on with his life...oh wait... forgot that would end the 15 minute wave he has been riding on for years....
