O J Simpson’s bail bondsmen declines money for movie rights

“I am not selling these recordings or my story at a wholesale rate,” Pereira stated. “This is my life and O. J.’s reality. We captured history.”

miguel pereiraMiguel Pereira, the bail bondsman who achieved fame thanks to his connection with O. J. Simpson during Simpson’s Las Vegas legal troubles, is back in the news once again. Pereira recently declined an offer of $2 million for his exclusive story and the documentation of his interactions with O. J. during the robbery case, which spanned the years of 2007 and 2008. As Simpson’s bail bondsman and temporary roommate during the course of the trial, Pereira was able to collect more than 30 hours of recordings along with an array of documents related to Simpson and the Las Vegas case.

With Simpson’s recent release, the O. J. story is likely to heat up in the near future but Pereira has thus far declined a range of offers, including one amounting to $2 million, for the rights to his story and the recordings in his possession.

“I am not selling these recordings or my story at a wholesale rate,” Pereira stated. “This is my life and O. J.’s reality. We captured history.”

A portion of the story shared by Pereira and Simpson was revealed on the A&E program, “O.J.: Guilty in Vegas,” which made its debut on the cable channel on September 21. With the guidance of his manager, Kevin Watson, Pereira provided valuable background information to the producers of this two-hour special and appeared on screen to tell a portion of his story.
