OJ Simpson Says He's The Real Victim, "They Killed Me"

Rage against the machine OJ Simpson was asked in 2006 what he was thinking when he attended Nicole Brown's wake in an interview that will finally air Sunday

"He's actually going to put you inside his head - his very complicated head - at various points".

The airing of the interview was quickly scrapped after an outcry and the footage languished for years.

Simpson says he responded, "No". It's incredible. We don't really know what's on it.

Wrong suggested "forgotten", "ignored" or "relegated" might be better ways to describe the material than "lost" but added that they "weren't in anybody's consciousness" when their existence was first flagged up.

When asked if he's ever blacked out before, he said no.

Wrong assembled a panel that includes Regan; attorney Christopher Darden, part of the team that prosecuted Simpson; a representative from the family of Nicole Brown Simpson; anti-domestic violence advocate Rita Smith; and retired Federal Bureau of Investigation profiler Jim Clemente. Soledad O'Brien hosts the special, which airs with limited commercial interruptions.

The interview can only be described as harrowing, with Simpson taking a borderline jovial tone while discussing the "hypothetical" murders.

Simpson, who is initially hesitant, recounts how he and a new friend named Charlie went to Brown Simpson's condo in the palatial Brentwood neighborhood.

"As things got heated, I just remember Nicole fell and hurt herself".

In Simpson's telling, Goldman assumed a martial arts pose and Simpson says he recalls grabbing the knife. Except I'm standing there and there's all kind of stuff around.blood and stuff. He said he and Charlie then fled and tossed bloody clothes.

Despite being acquitted in October 1995 for Nicole and Goldman's murders, a civil suit later found him responsible for their deaths and he was ordered to pay $33.5 million in restitution to the victims' families. It was supposed to coincide with a book, If I Did It, which detailed Simpson's hypothetical account of how Goldman and the mother of his children were butchered. She sued and settled for an undisclosed sum. The special airs Sunday, March 11 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. But the network reversed course after some Fox affiliates balked.

The book was later pulled by the publisher but was eventually released in 2007 by Goldman's family, with the new title If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer.

In the interview, Simpson eerily said that he whispered to Brown "I told you" at her funeral. O.J. also revealed that he did not like Nicole at the time of her death.

Nine years later, HarperCollins - owned by Fox's parent company - announced the publication of "If I Did It", in which Simpson would describe how the real murderer would have committed the killings.

Interest in Simpson has proved to be enduring. The so-called "trial of the century" was the subject of the popular FX limited series "The People v O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story" and the Oscar-winning ESPN documentary, "O.J: Made in America".
