GamePolitics has the scoop.
"GamePolitics readers will recall the controversy over O.J. Simpson’s inclusion in All-Pro Football 2K8, a lackluster pro football game released by 2K Sports in July.
According to TheStreet.com’s Priya Ganapati Simpson was paid $50,000 by Take Two Interactive for the use of his name and likeness:
Simpson was paid $25,000 within 30 days of the contract being signed last January, with the rest scheduled to be paid within a month of the release of the game, according to a contract obtained by TheStreet.com between Take-Two and Justin Communications, which represented Simpson in the deal."
