LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Rumors circulating about OJ Simpson making a deathbed confession about the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman have been debunked by sources close to the situation, reported by TMZ.

Despite speculation following Simpson's passing that he may have confessed to the infamous murders, a source with direct knowledge dismissed such claims as "totally false."

According to the source, Simpson did not discuss the murders in his final days, focusing instead on mundane topics like requesting water and expressing interest in watching a golf tournament.

According to one source, it is "totally false."

They added "Unless being thirsty and asking for water is a confession or wanting to watch the golf tournament. Nothing about the LA thing came up or was even thought about." Simpson never publicly confessed to the murders.

The reference to the "LA thing" indicates Simpson's trial for the 1994 double murder, for which he was famously acquitted. However, he was later found liable for the killings in a 1997 wrongful death civil suit and published a book titled 'If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer' in 2007.

In the days leading up to his death, Simpson was surrounded by close friends and family members who traveled to his Nevada home to bid farewell. Strict confidentiality measures were reportedly in place, with visitors required to sign nondisclosure agreements and prohibited from bringing phones into Simpson's bedroom where he was receiving hospice care.

Among those present were Simpson's grandchildren and his four children, including Sydney and Justin, his children with Nicole Brown Simpson. Simpson had been battling prostate cancer for the past six months, with frequent hospital visits before ultimately returning home a few weeks ago.

Responses from internet users vary regarding OJ Simpson's final words, with some expressing skepticism and others reflecting on the notion of accountability beyond life.

One user commented, "We all knew that. His ego wouldn't let him," suggesting a lack of surprise at Simpson's reported silence on the murders.

Another user wrote, "Don’t worry about it he’s already being judged in the afterlife wherever that takes him," indicating a belief in a higher form of justice beyond earthly realms.

A different perspective was shared by another user who stated, "I look at it this way. He's gone now and has to answer to a much higher power than any of us. If he did it, I truly feel that he'll pay for it. If he didn't, then he won't," suggesting a belief in divine justice.

Another user wrote, "And why would y’all think he would."
