O.J. Simpson In Danger?? Juice Moved To Special Housing Area To Protect Him From Being A Target After Getting Parole!

O.J. Simpson may have been granted parole, but that doesn’t mean he’ll make it out of prison in one piece.

The former athlete has been relocated to a special housing unit in Lovelock Correctional Center away from any inmates who might want to harm or harass him in the months before he’s set to be released.

Not that the 70-year-old has made a ton of enemies in the slammer, but officers say his parole could potentially make him a target for prisoners with life sentences who are looking to hurt the icon to raise their own profile.

Prison reps tell TMZ Sports that Simpson was moved out of the general population after he was granted parole during Thursday’s hearing, and quickly moved into his own cell.

Officers aren’t worried about any specific threat on Simpson’s life, but noted several prison lifers have “nothing to lose” and may be “opportunists” hoping to off the famous inmate to make a name for themselves.

Simpson did not request the special protection, the rep confirmed, explaining:

“It’s in the best interest of O.J. and the prison to make sure that he’s safe and comes out in one piece.”

Looks like O.J. will be getting some secluded R&R before his scheduled release on October 1.

After all, he needs to be spick and span for his inevitable reality show!
