Goldman's Lawyer: Show Me the Money!

5/10/2008 4:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

In addition to the shocking claim made in Mike Gilbert's upcoming book that O.J. confessed to the 1994 murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman -- Gilbert also claims to have helped O.J. keep money away from the Goldman family.

The Goldman's lawyer, David J. Cook, is pissed.

Cook told TMZ: "It's disgusting on two levels. It's another case of folks like Mr. Gilbert drinking the cocktail of celebrity and being intoxicated by Mr. Simpson's celebrity status -- and in doing so committing a moral, ethical and legal wrong. It's no different than the Las Vegas debacle."

Although Cook believes Gilbert's book won't be 100% true, he said, "There are strong strands of truth in [Gilbert's] story. We have heard over the years of Simpson walking around with bags of money, and then the money disappears. He needed his cronies to help him. Gilbert is just one of Santa's little helpers ... this book won't be an X marks the spot, but it's an enormous break."

The Goldman family won a $33.5 million wrongful death judgment back in 1997.

This story makes me sick to my stomach. If this man helped O.J. and this story is true, Gilbert should be locked up for as long as O.J. SHOULD have been locked for.

I have never trusted OJ, I don't believe he "jumped over luggage" in a air port commercial for a rent-a-car or that he was a murderer. He just seems like the kind of guy that would stab a guy in the back then do it to Mother.

wtf    

The Goldman's are obsessed with that money. They claim to be in massive debt because of OJ yet they leave out that the debt is from the wrongful death suit they filed against OJ. So they became broke while they were trying to get millions.

Strange how since the sales of that book you won the rights to have now ended with it being on the basement bargin tables for a dollar a copy and NO LONGER a bestseller. You come out of the woodworks with your hands out looking for MORE money and the public spotlight again!! Strange how you were so quiet during the Las Vegas Incidents when the book money was rolling in but when it dried up. BAM!! there you are again!!

The goldman family is just dragging this out and it's not helping their family bur hurting it.. they're not living in the streets, they need to stop fighting this battle and move on with their lives.. .we all know he's guilty.. no he didn't serve time, and no they won't get all the millions they want.... but we all know.. so leave it at that and start living you're lives people... for yourselves and your family.
