Justin and Sydney found comfort and care in their maternal aunt, Shirley, and other family members. The Browns did all they could to give the two kids a semblance of a normal childhood. In 2019, Justin’s aunt, Tanya, published a memoir, “Finding Peace Amid the Chaos: My Escape From Depression and Suicide”.
Tanya wrote about how the family rallied around her niece and nephew during and after the trial. Justin, in particular, was too young to comprehend what was happening, so the family ensured they never rehashed anything.
Sydney's Views on O.J.
Since the trial, Sydney has worked hard to retain her privacy. She has never made a public statement to the media about her father. Some sources claim Sydney believes her father is guilty, and she has never been able to look at him the same way. The same sources say she is working on how to forgive O.J. — the only parent she has left.
Family members have stated that they never talk about what happened that night. Sydney’s feelings about it are her own business. She has every right to stay quiet and owes nobody a statement.
Justin Ryan Simpson
Justin, O.J.’s youngest son, was born in August 1988. He and his sister, Sydney, lived with their mother after their parents divorced. Justin was only five on that fateful night in 1994 when his mother and Ron Goldman met thier gruesome ending outside their home.
The siblings were unaware and asleep in their beds. Even though they did not witness the horror, the resulting trauma and media scrutiny have dogged their lives since.
Justin Is a Successful Real Estate Agent
When Justin finished school, he moved to Saint Petersburg, Florida, and enrolled at Florida State University. In 2010, Justin graduated with a bachelor's degree in Entrepreneurial and Small Business Operations. Shortly after, he began working with a real estate group called DHM, marking the start of a brilliant and successful career.
According to some sources, Justin’s net worth today is roughly $ 3 million, although these claims remain unverified. He appears to be working for the real estate group to date.
Complicated and Fractured Relationships
In 1998, Nicole’s parents fought O.J. for the custody of his children, Sydney and Justin. However, the kids wrote emotional letters to the justices, asking to remain with their father. O.J. eventually won the custody battle, much to the Brown family’s dismay.
Tanya Brown later wrote about how difficult it was to interact with the man she believed took her sister's life. She put on a face for the children’s sake. Sydney and Justin loved their father, and she chose to respect that.
