The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story has renewed interest in the so-called “Trial of the Century” and the real-life cast of characters tied to the 1994 murders of Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman are again back in the spotlight. While we’re not surprised Kato Kaelin live-tweeted the premiere — he never minded the spotlight — we can’t help but think of the littlest victims, Brown and Simpson’s children, who have tried to live their lives out of the public eye.
They were just children when their father O.J. Simpson stood on the criminal trial “of the century” for the alleged murder of their mother Nicole Brown Simpson. Now, Sydney Simpson and Justin Simpson are full-fledged adults who have built full lives away from the tragedy that struck them over two decades ago.
At 30 years old, the eldest of Nicole’s children went on to attend Boston University, where she graduated with a BA in Sociology from the school’s College of Arts and Sciences in May 2010, Director of Media Relations. Since her college days, she lived in Atlanta and recently moved to St. Petersburg, Fla. where she purchased a house in August. As for income, she opened her own business, Simspy LLC, in 2014, which she currently still operates out of St. Petersburg, Fla and purchased two additional properties in the area.
In regard to Sydney’s younger brother Justin, he was only two months shy of his sixth birthday when he lost his mother. Justin, who broke our hearts carrying a single white flower at his mother’s funeral. He also lives in St. Petersburg, where he is a real estate agent for Coldwell Banker.
He shows a clear passion for his career on all of his social media accounts, discussing his flair for real estate on Twitter and on a separate business page on Facebook.
“Having a family immersed in hospitality, Justin sets himself apart by dominating customer service and his communication/negotiation skills give his clients the competitive edge!” his biography reads on the company’s website.
Nicole’s sister Tanya spoke about Sydney and Justin in the People magazine cover story about the case last week. The article implied that they still face pain every day. However, “they are so well-grounded,” she said, adding, “I’m so proud of what and who they’ve become.”
