The O. J. Simpson murder case, also labeled as The Trial of the Century, was a highly publicized one that brought both local and international attention. And while the case is still vividly remembered by many to date, no one suffered its effects more than Sydney Brooke Simpson, one of OJ Simpson's kids with the late Nicole Brown. Sydney was only 8 years old when her mother was killed, and worse, she and her 5-year-old brother were asleep in Brown's condo the night of the murders. What is this OJ Simpson daughter up to now?
Sydney Simpson is one of the two OJ and Nicole Brown Simpson kids. 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.

How old is Sydney Brooke Simpson?
She was born on October 17, 1985, meaning that her age as of 2020 is 35 years.
Apart from Sydney, OJ and Nicole Brown had another child, a son named Justin.
Sydney and Justin also have half-siblings. The other OJ Simpson kids are Jason, Arnelle, and Aaren.
Arnelle is the oldest among all OJ Simpson children, and she has a close relationship with her dad, according to Jeffrey Felix, a former corrections officer at Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada, where OJ was housed.
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.
Sydney attended Gulliver Academy. She then attended Boston University, where she graduated with a BA in Sociology from the school's College of Arts and Sciences in May of 2010.
After her graduation, Sydney worked as an events 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 on stated that they are just friends.

What is Sydney Simpson's net worth?

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 labeled 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.
For a while 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 and reserved and kept quiet so that her colleagues would not see her in a different light.
She 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.
Where is Sydney Brooke Simpson now?
She used to reside in St. Petersburg, Florida back in 2014 but currently lives near Brentwood in Los Angeles and runs her own business called Simpsy LLC with her younger brother Justin Ryan.
Sydney Brooke Simpson not only suffered because of her mother's gruesome murder, but she also had to watch as her father was accused of the murder. Even though the family was already in the limelight, this particular incident increased the media's attention on them. Luckily, Sydney and her brother Justin have managed to lead a rather peaceful life away from the public eye.
