Expert Says Simpson Can Still Make Millions

An expert who testified for plaintiffs in O.J. Simpson’s civil trial is standing by his view that Simpson could make a fortune on his name.

Although he claims to be broke, Simpson could get a lucrative advance from a publishing deal, Mark Roesler said Saturday.

“I would suggest to Mr. Simpson that he write a sequel to his book ‘I Want to Tell You’ and call it ‘I Want to Tell You the Truth,”’ he said. “I would guarantee him he would make a $5 million advance on this book.”

Roesler, who specializes in marketing celebrity images, testified at Simpson’s civil trial that he could make millions from selling his autograph, likeness and memorabilia.

On Friday, Simpson told The Associated Press that Roesler was wrong.

“I don’t have any money,” he said, noting that his Brentwood mansion is in foreclosure after he missed $86,000 in payments.
