Sydney Brooke Simpson's biography
Sydney Simpson is one of the two children OJ and Nicole Brown Simpson had. She and her brother Justin were eight and five years old when their mother was brutally murdered alongside her friend Ron Goldman at her home on June 12, 1994. But the kids' troubles did not end there. In fact, their mother's brutal death led to even more trouble for the family.
Nicole Simpson's kids were not only forced to grapple with the idea that they would never see their mother again but to watch as their father, retired NFL superstar O. J., was accused of the murders and ultimately acquitted of the crime.
How old is Sydney Brooke Simpson?
OJ and Nicole Simpson's daughter was born on October 17, 1985, meaning that her age as of 2021 is 35 years.
Siblings: Who are O. J. Simpson's children?
Apart from Sydney, OJ and Nicole Brown had another child, a son named Justin. Sydney and Justin also have half-siblings. OJ Simpson's other kids are Jason, Arnelle, and Aaren.
Arnelle is the oldest among all of OJ Simpson's children, and she has a close relationship with her dad. She and her younger brother, Jason, stood by their dad during his 1995 trial.
OJ had another child, a girl named Aaren, with his first wife, Marguerite Whitley, in 1977. Aaren was nearly two years old when she drowned in the family pool.
After her graduation, Sydney worked as an event coordinator at Canoe before moving to Florida, where she opened her own business, Simpsy LLC. At the moment, she owns three properties and a restaurant.
Sydney was rumoured to be in a relationship with real estate investor Robert Blackmon, who later stated that they were just friends.
She dated Stuart Alexander Lee from 2007 to 2012. She met him after graduation and moved with him to Atlanta, but the relationship did not last. She is now believed to be single.
Her mother's death and father's incarceration
On June 13, 1994, O.J. Simpson's ex-wife, Nicole Brown, and her friend Ron Goldman were found dead with multiple knife wounds outside Brown's condominium.
Almost immediately, police suspected O.J. His relationship with Brown had been incredibly abusive, and after the divorce, O.J. continued to harass Brown. This led to the highly publicized OJ Simpson trial that was labelled as The Trial of the Century.
While their father and his "Dream Team" of defense attorneys struggled to squash the case, Sydney and her brother Justin were shielded from the public eye by family members.
During the trial, Sydney and Justin were kept out of the spotlight, living a life of custody split between their father and their mother's family.
When she was all grown up, Sydney Brooke used a fake name, Portia, to protect herself from the media and local attention. In her work, she was shy, reserved and kept quiet so that her colleagues would not see her in a different light.
Sydney and her brother Justin kept a low profile while working at a restaurant in Georgia until one journalist tracked them down to expose the new lives the Brown-Simpson children were trying to lead.
