OJ Simpson’s Alleged Abuse Continued While Nicole Was Pregnant
From The Daily Mail:
Another undated entry reads: ‘Smashed my car (white Mercedes) with Baseball Bat after visiting Tommy Hughes. He greeted me at the gate. I was too afraid to get out of the car. He did it because I was late, about 7-8pm’.
Despite this Nicole married Simpson in 1985 but the abuse continued, the diaries reveal.
An entry from 1986 reads: ‘Eric & Val Von Watts. Listened to music at my place on Wilshire (Blvd in Los Angeles).
‘After we finished our drinks we left. (Simpson) beat me up so bad at home. Tore my blue sweater and blue socks completely off me. Went to hospital on Wilshire, pretended it was a bicycle accident’.
Another nasty episode happened on January 10, 1988.
At the time Nicole was two months pregnant with their son Justin and Simpson demanded she have an abortion and aimed a gun at her.

In her diary she wrote: ‘OJ was drunk, he never let up. Get out my f****** house you fat a** liar. I packed a few things together.
‘He locked the door again. I buzzed. Do I really have to go tonight? (Their daughter) Sydney’s sleeping, it’s late. Let me tell you how serious I am. I have a gun in my hand, get the f*** out of here’.
Nicole didn’t let on to her family that anything was wrong and it was not until she asked Simpson for a divorce that they had a clue.
Diaries Ruled Inadmissible During Criminal Trial
The diaries were ruled inadmissible in the criminal murder case against OJ Simpson as the writings were deemed “hearsay”.
Prior to the murders, OJ Simpson maintained a carefully clean cut image. That facade was smashed into pieces in the 1990s.
The infamous white Bronco police chase was the start of his legendary fall from grace.
While the former NFL superstar did escape prison time for the murders of Nicole and Ron, he later served nine years behind bars for robbery.
“OJ and Nicole: An American Tragedy” will air on Investigation Discovery on October 5th, which is the 25th anniversary of OJ Simpson’s murder acquittal.
