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.

This goldman man needs to chill out. He is going to die trying to get to O.J. Let it go man....you can't bring your son back and you can't hurt O.J. at this point in time and he knows it and he is laughing at you. Go take a long vacation and save your damn money. It is done....you are not going to get a different result. My GOD you must get sick worrying over O.J. and what he is doing..............I think you need some personal help.

It seems to me the only money that should be awarded in a case like this is the amount of earning potential the deceased person would have contributed to thier family if they had lived. Which in the Goldman case is ZERO. In the case of O J's children, not having their mother to guide them through life is priceless and absolutely enormous. If tMr. Goldman were truly a good parent he would understand how important it is for children to grow up without so much stress in their lives. Then he would leave Simpson alone. I don't blame OJ for not wanting to give his money to Mr. Goldman. He's just trying to profit from his son's death. He seems like a swooping vulture. It sickens me. We may never know the truth of what happened that day and OJ certainly has his issues, but let's think of these poor children and let it go.

tO #8 OJ NOT SMART? OKAY, WHETHER HE TOOK THE LIFE OF THOSE TWO PEOPLE IS ANYONE'S GUESS BUT (1) OJ PUT HIS MONEY IN HIS KIDS ACCOUNTS BEFORE THE TRIAL IN 1994 (2) HE MADE SURE TO ENFORCE THE LAW AND NOT HAVE ANY OF HIS PENSION TOUCHED (3) EVEN IF HE DIES RIGHT NOW, HIS KIDS GET EVERYTHING. (4) HE MADE SURE THAT HE ENFORCED THE LAW THAT HE WAS ACQUITTED OF MURDER IN A TRIAL (5) TRUE, GOLDMAN WAS NOT CLOSE TO HIS GAY ESTRANGED SON AND TO #9--A PICTURE TELLS A 1000 WORDS...THE SMILES WERE FOR THE CAMERA. (6) IT'S UNFORTUNATE FOR SOME BUT THE GOLDMAN'S STILL WILL NOT GET A DIME OF OJ SIMPSON'S MONEY...SO GIVE IT UP.

Wow, Goldmans thought they were going to get millions when the verdict was read, even Nicole's family knew that any money would go to the NBS foundation or ...MAYBE HER KIDS!!!!!!!!! The Zorro mustached freak is a slimball, just like OJ, seems harsh, but he is, even the Brown family calls them that after they double crossed them on the book deal, ps hows that going for ya!!!!! I know ur kid was murdered, but you will not be a millionare by default

BTW, OJ was found not guilty--DUH! That's why he is NOT in jail for murder!! The civil trial was a joke....revenge of the the white man. The Browns and the Goldmans deserve nothing-that is why there is life insurance!!!

Ron Goldman was gay. Google it you moron, Evacuateur de Colon. ALSO, the foot print was obviously planted. How do you make one footstep? Learn the facts!

Evacuateur de Colon and Michael are illiterate, ignorant racist fanatics. Why are you so angry at OJ? Was Nicole an old crack ho girlfriend? Clearly Evacuateur de Colon was sleeping with Ron Goldman.

Please learn English before responding.

To Dumb Gia--there was no DNA evidence that's why he was found not guilty. Enough time wasted with lowlives for one night. The glove and the footprint were both obviously planted by the cops who made no investigation other than framing OJ.

Goodnight losers!

I have no idea if it is the same idiot- or several idiots - who slam Fred Goldman every chance they get- but- it makes me sick.

The man lost his son, a young man who because he was a "nice guy" and dropped a pair of Nicole's mom's sunglasses off at her house- and happened upon an attack - or whatever went done- WAS MURDERED. The man's son was murdered- DEAD- --- ----- ------- GONE.

He son is dead- at the hands of a murderer that any 10 year old could have pointed to- but got off- and what do you EXPECT Mr. Goldman, the father who will NEVER get over his grief- to do? What do you expect him to do?

It is NOT about money. It is about so much more than that. So, STOP bashing Mr. Goldman- and the Goldman family. Honestly. It makes me SICK!

Planted footprints? That is good. And luckily for OJ the LAPD used to carry around a set of Bruno Magli shoes in his size just to incriminate innocent people, lol.

Yeah, I guess OJ didn't really murder those white people. What was everyone on the planet thinking?

The cops took the shoe and the gloves from OJ's bedroom. There was one footprint not a set of footprints. Learn the facts fools

Dear shame on you,

All Fred Goldman ever cared about was making money from OJ. He had disowned his gay son. He's a greedy bastard who should suffer for not being a good father. Ron G. was delivering coke to Nicole. The glasses were a ruse.
