New revelations about the O.J. Simpson case have come out as the 20-year mark since his infamous white Bronco ride through Los Angeles freeways returns attention to the disgraced hall of fame running back.

Simpson’s close friend and former manager claimed Tuesday that Simpson did not, in fact, write the controversial book “If I Did It.”

The book centered around the idea of how Simpson – who was found not-guilty by a jury — would have hypothetically carried out the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman if he had actually committed the crime.

Norman Pardo joined HuffPost Live’s Marc Lamont Hill on the 20th anniversary of the infamous police chase that helped Domino’s pizza hit a record request for delivery orders. During the interview, Pardo claimed Simpson only agreed to claim authorship of “If I Did It” for a $600,000 payout.

“If I Did It” withered under intense public backlash and plans to release it, along with an interview of Simpson, were scrapped in 2006.  In July 2007, Goldman’s family, who won a multi-million dollar civil suit against Simpson in 1997, announced they would publish it in an effort to satisfy what Simpson owed them.

Simpson avoided a murder sentence, but not public shame. He eventually landed in a prison cell following a botched armed rοbbery attempt to retrieve what he claimed was his memorabilia from his sporting career. He is currently in prison in Nevada.

Pardo told HuffPost Live that Simpson had no part in writing the book:

“I remember when that book was coming out. O.J. called me. He said, ‘Here’s the deal,’ because it was in the news that he was going to do an interview. I said, ‘O.J., don’t do it, it’s stupid.’ He said, ‘Hey, they offered me $600,000 not to dispute that I [wrote] the book.’ He said, ‘That’s cash.’ I said, ‘They’re going to think you wrote it.’ He said, ‘So? Everybody thinks I’m a murderer anyway. They’re not going to change their mind just because of a book.’”

The controversial book was actually written by a ghostwriter, according to Pardo.

“A ghostwriter for [the book’s publisher] wrote the book. [O.J.] was going to do an interview to say, ‘I wrote the book, blah blah blah,’ and they give him money,” Pardo said.
