OJ Simpson's Prison Situation Goes From Bad To Worse

| by Nathaly Pesantez

O.J. Simpson, who is serving time at Nevada's Lovelock Correctional Facility, has reportedly complained to friends after female fans stopped sending him money. He had allegedly been using the money to purchase goods at the prison commissary. 

"O.J. has called friends begging for money to be deposited into his commissary account," a source told

Simpson was reportedly receiving money by a handful of fans, but the letters and money have slowly but steadily decreased. 

"His family is responsible for replenishing the commissary account, but it's not a huge priority for his kids," the source said. "And O.J. just isn't getting the letters and money from women anymore. He needs that money because he also uses it to keep other inmates happy and off his back."

Simpson is currently serving a 33-year sentence after he was found guilty of 10 charges in connection to a 2007 robbery. 

Aside from his reported lack of commissary money by female fans, his time in prison has not gone so smoothly. In March, a maximum security inmate allegedly threw Simpson against a wall and threatened to kill him for jumping the line to receive medication, according to the Daily Mail. 

In 2014, Simpson reportedly hired a fellow prisoner to protect him in the wake of the 20th anniversary of the Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman murders.

"He found the biggest guy who is in great shape and willing to fend off the bullies to help OJ out--but, of course, it comes at a price," a source told the Daily Mail. 

Simpson will be up for parole in 2017.
