• Nicole Brown Simpson's family speaks out
  • They were interviewed on 'GMA'
  • The pain is still to near to them

In a recent heart-to-heart on 'Good Morning America,' Denise, Dominique, and Tanya Brown shared their vivid memories of the day that left America in disbelief - the day O.J. Simpson was acquitted. Here, we delve into their poignant reflections, revealing the complex emotions surrounding Nicole's legacy and the impact on her family.

The family is still healing

The sisters recounted the chilling silence in the courtroom, broken only by the sobs of Ron Goldman's sister, a moment Denise Brown describes as utterly numbing. "I couldn't scream. I was just numb," she said, painting a picture of the shock and disbelief that enveloped them.

The 1995 verdict that acquitted Simpson of the murders of his ex-wife, Nicole, and her friend, Ron Goldman, still haunts the Brown family. Denise had braced herself for a hung jury, never anticipating the wave of emotions that would follow the actual decision.

In the aftermath, the Browns faced the daunting task of returning home to Nicole's children, Justin and Sydney, with a facade of normalcy as per their mother's advice.

"She said, 'Put a smile on your face when we walk in the door,'" Denise Brown recalled. "'Whatever was best for them,' is what she would always say."

Denise said she felt some "relief" after Simpson passed away in April. But, one of Nicole's other siblings, Dominique, said it was "complicated" because of their relationship with Sydney and Justin. 

"It's very complicated. But I have a relationship with the kids that means everything to me, and I was... very, very sad for them," Dominique Brown said during the media interview.

The passing of O.J. Simpson in April brought a complex mix of relief and sorrow to Nicole's siblings, particularly as they navigated their relationship with Sydney and Justin, who now have families of their own.

A family's solace

The Browns are looking forward to the release of 'The Life and Murder of Nicole Brown Simpson,' a documentary they believe will finally give Nicole a voice.

"I don't know what kind of a relationship they had with him," Dominique said. "I'm there to love on them, and I'm there to love on their children."

"It's the voice of Nicole that we wanted to hear. We want to have people hear it, we want to have people get to know her," Denise Brown said. "Because so many people said, 'We don't even know what she sounds like... who is Nicole?" Denise expressed, hoping the documentary will allow people to truly understand who Nicole was beyond the headlines.

As anticipation builds for the documentary, the Browns revealed that Nicole had lived in fear of Simpson, a chilling premonition of the tragedy that would later unfold.
