LATEST: OJ Simpson has been ordered to curb his spending to include only basic necessities, after claims the former footballer is in talks to negotiate another book deal. He was issued the limited restraining order on Friday (19JAN07) by Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge GERALD ROSENBERG, after concerns were raised by the family of murder victim RON GOLDMAN. The ruling also restricts Simpson from spending any money earned from previous book, film and sports deals, and is effective until a 20 February (07) hearing. Simpson was set to publish his controversial book, IF I DID IT, on 30 November (06), but his contract was terminated cancelled by News Corp head Rupert Murdoch ten days prior to publication. The disgraced star was acquitted of the 1994 murders of his ex-wife NICOLE BROWN SIMPSON and Ron Goldman after a year-long trial, but was ordered by a civil court ruling to pay $33.5 million (GBP17 million) to their heirs - which he has yet to hand over - after they deemed him responsible for both deaths. YALE GALANTER, Simpson's attorney, heightened speculation his client was shopping for a new buyer on Monday (15JAN07) when he accepted publishers HarperCollins' cancellation of the book deal. He says, "We are taking the position that the contract with them is null and void. Or more accurately, others are free to try and get the story".
