Age, Early Life, and Education Background

Justin Ryan Simpson is a native of Los Angeles, California, and was born under the Leo zodiac sign on 6 August 1988, which makes him 34 years old as of 2022. He had a rough childhood because he lost his mother, who was an actress, model, and waitress when he was barely five years old. From his parents’ union, Ryan has a sister, Sydney Brooke Simpson, who was born in 1985. Moreover, he has three half-siblings from his dad’s previous union with Marguerite L. Whitley, who are Aaren Lashone Simpson (born in 1977), Jason L. Simpson (born in 1970), and Arnelle L. Simpson who was born in 1968. Sadly, he never met Arnelle since she drowned in the family pool in August 1979 when she was one and a half years old.

Ryan spent most of his childhood (together with his sister, Sydney Simpson) with his paternal grandparents, Eunice and Jimmy Lee Simpson, and also some of their childhoods with their maternal grandparents, Juditha A. Brown and Louis Hezekiel, who shielded them from the media when their father faced a murder trial in 1994 and 1995. Hezekiel sadly passed away in 2014.

Ryan went to Gulliver Preparatory School, located in Pinecrest, Florida, and matriculated to Florida State University, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Small Business and Entrepreneurial Operations in 2010.

Personal Life

Justin is a very secretive person who never talks about his dating life. He’s presumed to be single as of 2022, has never married and doesn’t have children. He still lives in St. Petersburg.

Controversy

Five days after the murder of his mother on 12 June 1994, Ryan’s father attempted to evade arrest and engaged the police in a low-speed pursuit. His mother’s death and the possible crime by O.J. shook the U.S. and the whole world – the 1994 NBA Finals were even interrupted to broadcast live happenings of the pursuit, which was watched by over 95 million people. His trial spanned almost a year and was watched by over 100 million people, many describing it as ‘The Trial of the Century.’ Ultimately, O.J. was acquitted of the two murders, which appeared to divide Americans along racial grounds. Most Afro-American citizens believed that he was innocent and celebrated the court’s verdict, whereas Caucasian and Latino people were convinced that he was guilty.

The trials and whole incident remain controversial, and have even been the subject of various books including “Nicole Brown Simpson: The Private Diary of a Life Interrupted,” which was written by Mike Walter and Faye Resnick in October 1994. A few years after the trial (1997), his late ex-wife’s friend’s father filed a lawsuit, and Simpson was found responsible for the two deaths – the victims’ families were awarded compensatory damages that totaled $33.5 million. However, O.J. was unable to pay the amount, so most of his assets (including his Heisman Trophy) were auctioned off to pay for the damages.

O.J. Simpson was later charged with kidnapping, armed robbery, and other crimes in 2008, and was found guilty and sentenced to 33 years; he was released in 2017 after he became eligible for parole.

Ryan has earned a good sum from his multiple business endeavors, and is reputedly worth approximately $3 million as of 2022. He owns several properties including a $250,000 three-bedroomed house – he is also reported to have a fleet of high-end vehicles. His father is reputedly still worth around $3 million.
