Oh, woe is he. Former actor and football player OJ Simpson is now struggling in prison after female fans stopped sending him money, leaving him unable to bribe inmates to leave him alone.

According to Radar Online, Simpson has been calling family members to ask for money to be deposited into his commissary account for use in prison. His family usually manages the money, letters, and other items Simpson receives from fans, but, according to sources, people no longer care enough to send him money. The source also notes that managing the commissary account is not a priority for his kids, indicating that he may be unsuccessful in hitting them up for money.

Simpson allegedly uses the money to protect himself in jail, paying off prison yard bullies to leave him alone.
Earlier this year, Simpson was involved in an altercation with sex offender and white supremacist Travis Waugh. Waugh was transferred to a different correctional facility after the incident.

That has also been complaints from the Simpson camp about poor health care in prison, as Simpson has apparently gained weight after not being allowed to work in the prison yard, perhaps because of his tendency to be a target for violence by other inmates. The source commented, O.J. hasn’t been able to work out in the prison yard as much, and prison guards are saying he looks like the Pillsbury Dough Boy!”

Well, no one said prison was nice.

Simpson is currently serving a thirty-three year sentence in the Lovelock Correctional Facility in Nevada on ten felony counts, including kidnapping and assault. He will be eligible for parole next year. The football star fell from grace in 1994 after his ex-wife and another man were found dead; although believed to be the killer, Simpson was acquitted of the charges the following year. He later wrote If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer, billed as a hypothetical confession.
