*The National Enquirer is reporting that O.J. Simpson was the victim of a racially-charged prison beatdown by a white inmate – all because he bragged about sleeping with white women.

The Enquirer story, which quoted OJ Simpson associate Bruce Fromong, claims that The Juice was beaten unconscious by a skinhead.

“Inmates cheered as a muscular young skinhead knocked him to the ground, punching and kicking him to a bloody pulp and inflicting injuries so severe he secretly spent nearly three weeks in the infirmary before he recovered,” the Enquirer stated.

According to the report, prison authorities have “done their best” to keep the beating a secret and Simpson is now afraid to leave his cell.

The 63-year-old former running back is serving a 33-year sentence in Nevada for the armed robbery of a sports memorabilia dealer who Simpson claimed had stolen his belongings. He’ll be eligible for parole in about 7 years.
