LAS VEGAS (KABC) -- O.J. Simpson is battling prostate cancer but he's refuting rumors that he's in hospice care.

The 76-year-old former football star posted a video on X denying that he's in hospice care and saying he's planning to host a "ton of friends" in Las Vegas for the Super Bowl on Sunday.

Simpson is currently undergoing chemotherapy in Las Vegas.

Simpson served nine years in a Nevada prison for a 2007 armed robbery, involving an attempt to retrieve personal sports mementos.

In the 1990s, he was acquitted in the double murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman, though he was later found liable in a civil wrongful death case.
