O.J. Simpson has reportedly asked President Obama to set him free so he can treat his life-threatening brain cancer outside prison.

The National Enquirer reports that Simpson is taking desperate measures to secure clemency after undergoing tests on a brain tumor.

The magazine quotes “a source close to” Simpson who said,

“He put off the doctors for weeks after he first started experiencing the symptoms because he was afraid of what they would find.”

The Juice has been in a Nevada prison since 2008, serving a 33-year sentence for assault, robbery and kidnapping.

The Washington Times reports that Simpson’s health has been deteriorating for years.

“He’s gained weight since his imprisonment, and also suffers from blurred vision, stuttering and failing hearing,” according to the paper.

Six months ago, the Enquirer also reported that the former football star had a severe case of diabetes.
