About Nicole Brown

Nicole was born in Frankfurt, West Germany to Juditha Anne and Louis Hezekiel Brown. The family later moved to Garden Grove, Orange County, California, where she grew up.

As a child she attended Gilbert Elementary School, Skylark Elementary School, Simmons Elementary (6th grade in Mentally Gifted Minor program), Hare Intermediate School and later to Rancho Alamitos High School before moving to Monarch Bay, west of Dana Point, Orange County California, in her junior year along with younger sisters Dominique and Tanya and older sister Denise. Nicole Brown was elected one of the homecoming princesses at Dana Hills High School (the other was her sister Denise).

Brown met O. J. Simpson in June 1977 while working as a waitress at a Beverly Hills nightclub, Daisy. Although he was still married to his first wife Marguerite, Simpson and Brown began dating. Simpson and Marguerite divorced in March 1980. Brown and Simpson were married on February 2, 1985, five years after his retirement from professional football. They had two children together, Sydney Brooke (born October 17, 1985) and Justin Ryan Simpson (born August 6, 1988). The marriage lasted seven years, during which Simpson pleaded no contest to spousal abuse in 1989. Brown filed for divorce in 1992 citing "irreconcilable differences".

On June 12, 1994, Nicole's and her friend Ron Goldman's bodies were found slain in the front of her Brentwood, Los Angeles County, California home. He was returning a pair of sunglasses, she was eating ice cream. Nicole's ex-husband OJ Simpson is and was the main suspect, but he was acquitted. A 1997 judgment against Simpson for their wrongful deaths was awarded in civil court, and to date he has paid little of the $33.5 million judgment.
