According to the National Enquirer, OJ Simpson, who is currently serving nine to 33 years in prison for his part in a memorabilia heist (he claimed the memorabilia belonged to him) spent four days in a psych ward after he allegedly was overhead saying he wanted to kill himself. The report claims he lost the will to live after the Nevada Supreme Court rejected his request to be freed pending the outcome of an appeal decision.
"OJ was absolutely crushed after his motion was denied," revealed a close source.
"He was on the phone after getting the news, and the call was being monitored.
"OJ was upset and really emotional. he was almost crying. Suddenly, he blurted into the phone that he didn't have a reason to love anymore." He said, "I might as well kill myself."
Guards overhead the conversation and escorted OJ to the psych ward at the prison hospital," said the source. OJ was formally put on suicide watch and given a bed in the psych ward."
