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.

Master of the Obvious, good point! Like the cops were just salivating over the chance to frame the wife beater/murderer Simpson. Can people honestly be so damn stupid as to not see the obvious? I guess when all else fails for these morons they are left to resort to bashing the dead. I'm sure Nicole AND OJ's kids just love to know their murdered mother is being called a coke whore. What class you butcher defenders possess.

Go get em Fred!!

shame on you, these losers will never "get it". They don't to know the truth about Simpson, they prefer to live in a make-believe land where Simpson was framed. Despite the MOUNTAIMN of evidence, the means and motive, poor little O.J., who had for years beaten his wife to a pulp and was heartless enough to call her fat while pregnant, would NEVER kill. Not the wife-beater, drug user, road rage nut, armed robber and all-around thug Simpson. He's just misunderstood.
If it had been my child I would do exactly as Fred is doing. Simpson would not have a MINUTE'S peace as long as I was alive. I'd make it my life's work to make that killing bastard miserable.

Go get em Fred!

How nice, a lame attempt to justify Nicole being nearly beheaded. And calling a dead mother of two a slut and coke whore-you are all class pal.
I mean it couldn't be the killer's Simpson fault that he ran around on his wife and picked up a MINOR. No, that doesn't rteflect on his lack of character in the least, does it? It's the 17 year old's fault in your little white-bashing world.

Why does OJ pay 7500.00 for accounting each year? Hell, for as little as he theortically has, I would do it for 3500.00? Perhaps a man with a 33M debt should have to use H & R Block like the masses.

Doesn't matter if I think he deserves to have money, a jury has already decided that he has a debt to pay. That debt should have to come before mansions and golf dates.

At this point, OJ is financing both sides of Fred's legal battle against him. Every thing that Fred gets pays more bills for him to continue to take the two things that kept OJ out of jail - money and fame.

I don't care how Nicole lived her life. She didn't kill anyone. She didn't deserve to be a woman who had the ABILITY to keep photos of herself beaten to a plup in a safe deposit box. I don't know if he killed them - I wasn't on that jury. However, it could just be that this is Karma justifying the universe with a man who did that to another human being and was not legally punishedl. He is punished now.

Go Fred. Nail him with a legal crow bar. He deserves it.

This jerk owns numerous homes out of the country (Aruba for one, that's a fact) - can the goldman's attorney go after these homes?? I'm sure there's a lot more digging (swiss bank accounts, etc.) that needs to be checked out.....come on Mr. Cook...jump on it and get the long overdue compensation that's owed to the Goldman family and Nicole's kids. Someone needs to kick this guy's ass.....

Well, the last laugh will be at OJ's expense.

People can try to rewrite history and reshape OJ into a nice guy but even black folks admit they know he did it. He got off with a fine legal team and was lucky the LA DA's were too worried about book deals and posing for the camera.

Something tells me LV DA's aren't as attention starved.

It will be nice when OJ goes to jail for the rest of his natural life. It will restore some normalcy and justice to the world that is sorely missing now.

He deserves sharing condemned status with Ramirez and Peterson at San Quentin. I just puked my way through his confession. He is clearly out of touch with reality. Ad Seg for OJ.

OJ's DNA was at the murder site, along with Nicole's and Rons. The only reason he was acquitted in a criminal court, not found innocent, is because the black jurors decided that letting a black man go free somehow vindicated them. Remember the Black Power salute that one of the jurors did when the verdict was announced? Plus, Cochran looked over at Ron's family, smiled and said "Gotcha" when the verdict was read. That's real class, Johnny, real class, then again he was the guy who beat up his wife but only beat her so it wouldn't show. Again, real class. I hope the Goldman's persue OJ to the grave and beyond. I am waiting for the day when the two children he had by Nicole finally wake up and realize their father murdered their mother in cold blood.
OJ is a sociopath and a narcissist. If justice is finally done he will go to jail for the rest of his life for his latest runin with the law.

I know Fred but unfortunately never met Ron though I heard a lot about both him and Kim from Fred and his wife.. They had a close relationship - Fred is and was an amazing dad... When his first wife left him and the kids, he stepped up to the plate in an amazing and profound way... You have no right to make a judgment on Ron and Fred's relationship unless you know it from the source.

And kudos to the Goldmans... They aren't willing to let OJ just go and do his own thing while he plays by the rules he dictates for himself. - that has been how OJ's entire life was before he murdered his ex-wife and Ron. No accountability and a true socio-path. For once, he is going to have to face just a little bit of the music.... Go for it Fred and Kim - be a thorn in his side until he has to face God Himself.... It won't bring Ron or Nicole back but maybe it will force OJ to have consequences for his actions (just this one time).
