Simpson would not even get into the hotel room until after he received $20,000 in cash.

Simpson was acquitted of murdering Nicole, his ex-wife, and Goldman, who was her friend, following the 1995 "trial of the century".

The prankster is known for his outrageous stunts, however, his hiring of Simpson was deemed inappropriate by some in the social media universe and by the families of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.

Critics have also questioned the good taste of hiring a notorious criminal, but considering Baron Cohen's last big-screen outing featured jokes about Donald Trump contracting HIV, and characters hiding inside the vagina of an elephant during copulation, he probably isn't too bothered.

"Paying money, cash no less, in secret to O.J. Simpson is 100 percent unadulterated sleaze..."

As you may already know, the 70-year-old was released from jail back in October of 2017 after serving 9 years of his sentence for armed robbery.

If Simpson did get paid by Cohen, then the money should be used to pay his civil-judgment debt, said David Cook, a collections lawyer who works for Goldman's dad, Fred. This will be O.J.'s first major gig since being released from prison a year ago. There is a legal and moral imperative here'.

Despite the fact that neither Simpson nor Cohen's reps have officially confirmed the meeting and the alleged deal, we know that they at least know each other. In brief comments to the British paper, Simpson called Cohen a "nice guy" but declined to elaborate. "If Sacha makes this a comedic effort his victims will be personified as a joke", Brown's sister, Tanya, told the Mail.

"When approached by The Mail about the project on Friday, Mr. Simpson said: "'I know him well. The conditions of his probation restrict his movement, which may explain why Cohen came to Vegas instead of Simpson meeting him at another location.
