O.J. Simpson has reportedly been diagnosed with cancer, though the specific nature or severity of his condition has not yet been revealed.
According to Local 10 News, which received intel from inside sources, the former football star is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatment for prostate cancer in Las Vegas.
But while reports have been circulating online that the 76-year-old has been in hospice care, Simpson took to social media with a message singing a completely different tune, and insisting that he's in good health.
On Friday afternoon, Feb. 9, he shared a video clip to X (formerly Twitter), shutting down rumors surrounding his medical status. "Hospice? Hospice? You talking about hospice?" he questioned in the snippet, further proclaiming, "No, I'm not in any hospice, I don't know who put that out there," and doubling down that you "can't trust the media."
He appeared in the driver's seat of a vehicle, seemingly in good spirits, while chuckling at the ordeal, before continuing, "In any event, I'm hosting a ton of friends for the Super Bowl here in Las Vegas" while noting that "all is well" and urging his followers to "take care; have a good Super Bowl weekend."
Still, as evidenced by the social media upload from Friday, the former athlete neither confirmed nor denied whether or not he does, in fact, have cancer.
Interestingly, though, Simpson seems to have already spoken on his diagnosis in a social media upload from last year. In a video he shared in May 2023 via X, he briefly mentioned the fact that he "caught cancer," while also suggested that he'd already beaten it and was in better health at the time.
He also chatted about his weight loss during chemo, and what helped him regain his appetite, but from the looks of it, since he never stated what type of cancer he had in the previous update, this newest development seems to be news to most.
