( CM ) - O.J. SIMPSON's plans to be a contestant on CELEBRITY APPRENTICE have been scuppered by DONALD TRUMP.
It was claimed this week that Simpson is keen to take part in the hit U.S. TV show, which sees various celebrities vie for the approval of property mogul Trump.
But Trump and network bosses at NBC have decided not to hire the controversial sportsman-turned-actor.
A publicist for the network says, "O.J. Simpson has never been considered to join the cast for the upcoming season of Celebrity Apprentice on NBC. All rumours are completely false."
