O.J. takes advantage of private putting green at friend's Vegas home.
O.J. Simpson is currently living it up at a spacious 5,000 square foot home in a private Las Vegas gated community, situated right next to a golf course, according to reports. O.J., 70, was recently spotted working on his putting game on his first full day as a free man, which is exactly what his good friend Tom Scotto predicted he'd be doing.
"He's going to focus on kids, friends, his family and golf," Simpson's good friend, Tom Scotto recently told CNN. "Maybe not the first day or second, but he is going to go out."
According to TMZ, the owner of the home that Simpson is currently staying is one of his longtime friends, a person who even testified for O.J. in the Vegas robbery trial. The home, which is located approximately 20 minutes from the Vegas strip, features 5 bedrooms, 5.5 baths and includes a number of amenities such as a pool, hot tub and a private putting green area.
ABC reports that Simpson still plans to move into his house in Florida, where three of his children live, but he'll be crashing out in Vegas for the time being. Florida's Attorney General, Pam Bondi, was adamant about not allowing Simpson back into the Sunshine State, but an ABC legal expert believes Florida will have to take him.
Paparazzi would be wise to leave O.J. alone, whether he's working on his short game at a private putting green in Las Vegas or simply sitting in the car at a gas station. As seen in the video clip below, Simpson didn't seem particularly interested in talking to reporters after being released from prison.
O.J. was sentenced in 2008 to 33 years in prison for a 2007 armed robbery in Las Vegas, but was granted parole on July 20th, after serving nearly ten years. He was officially released from Lovelock Correctional Center in northern Nevada this past Sunday.
