O.J. Simpson‘s oldest daughter, Arnelle Simpson, reportedly faces a lawsuit in Miami accusing her of money laundering in her attempt to hide money paid to her father in his 2006 book deal. And according to a story in the Chicago Sun-Times (scroll down to the second item), the 41-year-old Arnelle also is on the defensive against half-sister Sydney Simpson for allegedly spending the hidden money that had been designated for all the former NFL star’s children.

O.J. Simpson, who is serving a prison sentence of 19 to 33 years in Nevada for armed robbery and kidnapping, allegedly set up a Florida corporation to collect approximately $780,000 paid to him as an advance for his book “If I Did It.” According to the National Enquirer, the company was equally owned by Simpson’s four children, with Arnelle serving as president and director. Those maneuverings were designed to keep the money from the families of the late Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson. Simpson lost a wrongful death civil trial in 1997 and was ordered to pay $33.5 million to the families, the large majority of which has not been paid.

According to the Sun-Times report, a source close to Sydney Simpson said the 25-year-old former Boston University undergrad ”is furious that Arnelle has gone through most of that money all by herself.”
