SIMPSON WANTS TO SHARE

O.J. Simpson says he’d be happy to share custody of his children with their maternal grandparents, the New York Post reports. Citing errors in an earlier ruling, a California appeals court recently reversed a lower court that granted Simpson custody of Sydney, 13, and Justin, 10, in 1996. The former football great now says he’d be willing to share the children with the parents of his slain wife, Nicole Brown Simpson. “I’m 51 years old, but I’m not an old man,” the Post quotes Simpson as saying about the sharing offer. “I’d still like to be able to do adult stuff, too.” Acquitted in criminal proceedings of murdering his wife and her friend Ron Goldman, Simpson was found liable for a compensatory financial settlement in subsequent civil court proceedings. Legal analysts think shared custody may be Simpson’s best hope of retaining any form of custody of the children, the Post said.
