Imagine losing your mother at the tender age of four through the most gruesome way (stabbing) and then witnessing your dad being carted off to jail a handful of months later for the murder of your beloved mother? Well, this was exactly the troubled childhood of Justin Ryan Simpson, who is mostly known as the son of former American football running back and ex-convict, Orenthal James Simpson.
Despite having such a horrible childhood, he was able to keep his act together, pushing himself into becoming the successful businessman and realtor that he is today. How did he manage that? Let’s find out together.
Justin Ryan Simpson is a famous American real estate agent and businessman. He was born on August 6, 1988, In California, United States, and it is no secret that he is of American nationality and black ethnicity. As a kid, he was known to be hard-working and dedicated in whatever thing he did, not choosing to rely on the fact that he hailed from an affluent family. While there is literally nothing known as regards his elementary and high school education, it is known that he had his higher education at Florida State University where he studied Estate Management.
Upon graduating from college, he set his sights on becoming a big shot in the real estate business. In less than no time, he was employed by the highly reputable residential brokerage firm Coldwell Banker’s Homes where he served in the capacity of a realtor for a period of six years. Within this period of time, he had become an expert in the field of house listing, house sale, short lease, and intermediary activities between home buyers and sellers in California. Over time, he expanded his area of coverage from California to Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, and Florida. Over the years, he has developed a reputation for offering speculative functions to clients so as to enable them to make informed decisions on the best place to get properties with an expected increase in value in the nearest future.
As a result of his hard work and input in his career as a realtor, he has been able to close several top real estate deals, thereby pegging his net worth at an estimated sum of $2 million. Justin Ryan Simpson has become the realtor to pay attention to, not only because of his successes in the real estate sector but also because of his lavish lifestyle, as he is known to own a fleet of luxury cars.
His Parents and Siblings
Truth be told, we can’t talk about Justin Ryan Simpson without sparing some choice words which are often used to describe his family, a very controversial one you might add. His parents are Orenthal James Simpson (father) and Nicole Brown (mother). Speaking about his parents; his dad was an American former professional footballer in the NFL, an actor, and broadcaster while the profession of his mother is pretty much unknown.
According to several sources, they met at “The Daisy” nightclub where Nicole was working in 1977 and shortly afterwards, they started having an affair despite the fact that O.J Simpson was still married to Marguerite L. Whitley. In March 1979, when O.J got divorced from Marguerite, they stopped hiding in the shadows and started expressing their love for each other openly. They eventually tied the knot on February 2, 1985, and on the 17th of October 1985, they welcomed their first child together – Sydney Brooke Simpson. In 1988, they welcomed their second child Justin Ryan Simpson, but barely four years later, they got divorced with both parties citing irreconcilable differences.
On June 12, 1994, barely two years after their divorce, Nicole Brown was found dead. Having been stabbed outside her house in Brentwood, Los Angeles, the incident led to the trial of O.J Simpson who was identified as a person of interest. After spending close to a year in prison, he was discharged and acquitted of all allegations of murder. As of date, both Justin and his sister Sydney are on speaking terms with their father. They have also made efforts to live a normal life away from the spotlight. Justin has half-siblings – Arnelle Simpson, Aaren Simpson, Jason Simpson, from his father’s first marriage.
