O.J. Simpson’s lawyer came unhinged when an ESPN reporter asked him about a tell-all book, written by a corrections officer, that makes allegations against “The Juice.”
During a press conference following the announcement that Simpson had been paroled, lawyer Malcolm LaVergne was visibly agitated by the reporter’s question. The query cannot be heard in the recording, but it was obviously about the book, as LaVergne goes on a rant and says the book’s author, Jeff Felix, “is a fraud and a phony.”
Felix, a retired prison guard at Lovelock Correctional Facility, wrote a book detailing information he claims he learned from Simpson while he was imprisoned. “Guarding the Juice,” a book Felix self-published, indicates Simpson and friend Al Cowlings know who killed Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman.
After the question was asked, LaVergne declared,”Listen, do you know that Jeffrey Felix is a complete fraud? Can’t you tell that that guy is the biggest fraud on the planet?”
LaVernge says he’d seen the same ESPN reporter talking about the book on the news Thursday morning, and admits that his reaction may be due to personal feelings, but he refused to answer any questions presented by the reporter.
LaVergne went on at length, denouncing Felix and repeatedly admonishing the ESPN reporter and related networks.
“I’ve told ABC News a million times – which is also ESPN, which is also Disney – this guy is a fraud and a phony. And, every single thing he has in that book is made-up,” he said, accusing the reporter of “perpetrating a fraud” by spreading Felix’s message.
After attacking Felix’s credibility based on the man’s physical appearance, and the fact he self-published his book, LaVernge announced he would be going after Felix’s pension.
