Who is Justin Ryan Simpson?
Justin Ryan Simpson was born on 6 August 1988, in California, USA, and is a real estate executive, but perhaps better known for being the son of former professional football player O. J. Simpson, who became notorious during the 1990s for his acquittal after being arrested and charged with the murder of his ex-wife and Justin’s mother, Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman.
The Riches of Justin Ryan Simpson
How rich is Justin Ryan Simpson? As of late-2018, sources estimate a net worth that is over $250,000, earned through a successful career in real estate. His net worth has also apparently been elevated by the success of his father, who had a net worth at $2.5 million, earned largely during his professional football career. As he continues his endeavors, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Family
Justin Ryan’s parents were both successful, with his father a retired National Football League (NFL) running back, while his mother was an actress and a model. They were one of the most celebrated couples during the time of his birth, especially due to their mixed race relationship which increased their exposure. He grew up with an older sister, but when he was four years old his parents divorced, leading them to be raised by their maternal grandparents. Their life stayed quiet for a few years, but tensions increased with their parents until 1994, when his mother and her friend were found murdered, with his father the prime suspect for the killings.
Father OJ Simpson
OJ earned fame in college football while playing for the University of Southern California (USC) football team, the USC Trojans. During his time there, he won the Heisman Trophy in 1968 leading him to a strong start in the NFL. He played as a running back for the league for 11 seasons, primarily with the Buffalo Bills before playing his final season with the San Francisco 49ers. He became the first player to rush for more than 2,000 yards in a season, and is the only player to ever rush that distance during the 14 game regular NFL season format.
However his fame as a professional football player was overshadowed in 1994, when he was arrested and charged with the murders of his ex-wife and her friend. The trial was very lengthy and internationally publicized, becoming one of the most followed trials of all time. However, despite the likely motive and possibility of them being killed by him, there wasn’t enough substantial evidence, leading him to be acquitted by a jury. Later on, the families of the victims filed a civil suit against him which they won, leading to a $33.5 million judgment for the wrongful deaths of the victims.
With the events that transpired during their childhood, Justin Ryan never really spent any more time with his father, especially with what he had possibly done to his mother. He lived with his grandparents and grew up with them. After matriculating from high school, he enrolled into Florida State University, and after graduating pursued a career in real estate, becoming a part of the company Coldwell Banker Homes, where he gained a lot of distinction thanks to his customer service. He worked his way to become a realtor, and climbed up the corporate ladder.
He earned more attention in his company thanks to his communication and negotiation skills, which helped his company gain an edge. He has decided to live a life away from the public eye, which is also the same decision that was made by his sister. One of their few recent public appearances was at the funeral of their grandfather in 2014, with another when they were present at their cousin’s wedding in 2016, with the siblings seen and pictured together during the ceremony which was held in Newport Beach, California.
OJ Arrested Again
More than a decade after his father was acquitted of murder, he was arrested again in Las Vegas, Nevada, charged with kidnapping and armed robbery, and the following year was convicted and sentenced to 33 years in jail, with a minimum of nine years without parole. He served the next nine years at the Lovelock Correctional Center located near Lovelock, Nevada, and was only granted parole in 2017. He was then eligible for prison release a few months later, and was released in late-2017.
Personal Life and Social Medias
For his personal life, there is no information regarding Justin Ryan’s romantic relationships. He has never been reported as married, and has not been seen publicly in a relationship. Some sources state that he is likely in a relationship, but likes to keep his life away from the spotlight. Being chased by the media after the death of his mother, he prefers not to be too exposed. Even though he was only a child then, the events that transpired had a significant effect on his life.

One of the reasons why he continues to enjoy a life without much attention is due to the lack of any online presence. He does have an account on Facebook, focused on his real estate business which has received a lot of good reviews. He posts a lot of the houses he sells, and it has been long enough that he is no longer immediately connected to his father. However, he does not share any personal information online.
