LAS VEGAS, NV — O.J. Simpson was kicked out of the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas Wednesday night by security after allegedly getting drunk and disruptive — and, since then, his attorney has since come out fighting on Twitter.

TMZ reported that at around midnight on Wednesday, Simpson was intoxicated and belligerent at the Clique bar.

Simpson, who is living in a $1.8 million home in Vegas, has reportedly been coming to the hotel since his release from prison.

The former football star, who was controversially acquitted of murdering his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman in 1995, allegedly became angry at staff during the incident — and glasses were broken.

Security guards responded to the incident and removed Simpson from the hotel.

The Cosmopolitan hotel slapped him with a permanent ban from the premises. “The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas … has exercised its right pursuant to Nevada law to issue a trespass notice,” Simpson’s attorney Malcolm LaVergne told the Associated Press.

LaVergne confirmed that Simpson had been banned fro the Cosmopolitan and said that his client admitted that he had been drinking, which he is allowed to do under the terms of his parole conditions. But he said that Simpson categorically denied allegations of breaking glass or being disruptive.

And LaVergne did not stop there: He also took to social media to hit back at TMZ, and in a series of tweets he raged against a “soulless” Harvey Levin, his “slave labor” reporters, and the Goldman foundation, which he labeled a “sham.”
