Denise Brown no longer consumed by hate for O.J.
(6/13/06 - LOS ANGELES, CA) -- The sister of Nicole Brown Simpson said she is no longer consumed by hate for O.J. Simpson. Denise Brown told "Inside Edition" that she has moved on and the feelings she once had for her former brother-in-law have melted away.
"I was really angry (at him) for a long time and I did anything I could to irritate him and, in a sick sort of way, it gave me pleasure," Brown said. "It's as if a whole load of yuck was just built up on my shoulders and now it's gone."
Simpson was acquitted of the June 12, 1994, slayings of his former wife and her friend Ron Goldman outside her Brentwood home. No one else has been arrested.
The victims' survivors later sued Simpson in civil court, where a jury, using a lesser standard of proof than required at a criminal trial, found him liable for the killings and ordered him to pay $33.5 million.
The judgment remains unpaid by Simpson, who now lives in Florida.
Brown, who runs a foundation for battered women, has long despised Simpson. In 2004, she called him evil and said, "I think he's the devil walking around on Earth."
Brown said in the "Inside Edition" interview, which aired Monday, that she still has a relationship with her niece and nephew, Justin and Sydney, but they never discuss their mother's murder when they're together.
"It's not a conversation that should be talked about. I (like to) talk about the good things, the happy times, the things her mother and I did together when we were younger. I just want good memories," Brown said.
