San Francisco native O.J. Simpson has been in many dubious places since his days as a fresh-faced football star at Galileo High, most recently the cover of this week's National Enquirer.
“O.J. 4 Weeks to Live,” screams the headline on a bizarre story that claims Simpson, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and murder-suspect hall of infamy, may have contracted HIV from his transgender jailhouse lover.
The tabloid talked to Jazmena Jameson, who says she hooked up with O.J. Simpson between 2011 and 2013 at the perfectly named Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada, where Simpson is serving time for a bungled robbery of sports memorabilia.
“I was the closest thing to a real woman” at the facility, the ex-prostitute told Radar Online on Thursday. Jameson says she regularly delivered laundry to Simpson's room as part of her prison duties. Then, Jameson says, the Juice turned on the charm.
“One day he said, 'You have big t—–s. … Are those implants or the hormone shots?,'” Jameson said.
She described the ensuing oral encounter in excruciating detail, although she didn't tell Radar whether she disclosed a certain fact to Simpson, who was controversially found not guilty of murdering his ex-wife and her friend in 1994.
“I'm HIV positive. I have to be really careful,” she told Radar.
“I guess that wasn't being completely careful,” she acknowledged, adding that she specifically avoided higher-risk sex acts with Simpson.
“O.J. has put his life in danger due to serious health consequences of his actions,” said Dr. Steven Charlap, who has never treated Simpson but still talked to the National Enquirer, a publication that is happy to turn a woman's hookup confession into a four-weeks-to-live medical diagnosis.
