OJ Simpson book off B&N shelves

OJ Simpson's hypothetical book about the murder of his ex-wife and her friend Ronald Goldman will not be sold in outlets of US bookstore chain, Barnes & Noble.

OJ Simpson's hypothetical book about the murder of his ex-wife and her friend Ronald Goldman will not be sold in outlets of US bookstore chain, Barnes & Noble.

The former American football star's controversial If I Did It will, however, be made available to Barnes & Noble's online customers.

A Barnes & Noble spokesman claimed the decision was because of a lack of demand, and not because of the book's contents.

Simpson was famously acquitted in 1995 of the 1994 murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Goldman, but was found liable for their deaths in a civil trial in 1996.

The rights of If I Did It were taken away from the star earlier this year and were awarded to Goldman's family to help pay off more than R266million owed to them by Simpson.

Goldman's family has since signed a deal to publish the tome - despite the objections of Brown's sister Denise Brown. She is disgusted that her sister's children will be subjected to the book. - Wenn
