The marriage of O.J. and Nicole was a rollercoaster ride with his wedding vows – “to be your loving and faithful husband in plenty and in one, in joy and in sorrow, in sickness and in health as long as we both shall live” – soon becoming a distant memory…
Robin Greer, the ex- Falcon Crest actress who’d known O.J. since 1977 and was part of Nicole’s inner circle of friends says: “When O.J. was good to Nicole, he was great. But when he was bad he was truly terrible…”
Gree adds: “It was memories of those good times that kept them together and eventually drove Nicole back to him. She badly wanted it to work not just for herself but for Sydney and Justin. For Nicole, her memories of the good times outweighed the bad – until the very end.”
But on May 22, 1994, Nicole ended the obsessive love that had consumed half her life. She returned to O.J. the diamond-and-sapphire bracelet he’s given her on her 35th birthday three days before. “I can’t be bought,” she told him.
Seemingly driven by a premonition of doom, she’d put her will in order and documented her beatings. She even foresaw the appearance of her $15,000 bracelet on Paula Barbieri’s arm.
And 21 days later, Nicole Brown Simpson was dead…
