O.J. Simpson once hired notorious private investigator Anthony Pellicano to harass ex-wife Nicole Brown, according to a former police officer.
Bill Pavelic, the lead investigator for Simpson's defense team during his criminal trial for the murders of Nicole and Ron Goldman, claims the 60-year-old hired private eye Pellicano to spy on his ex-wife.
He tells the New York Daily News, "I know for a fact that Nicole Brown Simpson was a victim of stalking and that her cars and residence had been wiretapped.
"I saw it with my own eyes. The equipment in Nicole's house and car was almost identical to what he installed at Michael Jackson's."
In September 1994, Pellicano failed to testify before the murder trial jury after it was alleged he was shadowing Nicole the night of the murders.
Simpson was famously acquitted in 1995 of the 1994 murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman.
Pellicano recently pleaded not guilty to charges in a 111-count indictment accusing him of bugging phones and bribing police to get information on celebrities and others.
