ENQUIRER EXCLUSIVE: COPS QUESTION O.J. AFTER HIS BATTERED GIRLFRIEND IS HOSPITALIZED

O.J. Simpson's long-time girlfriend Christie Prody has been hospitalized, the apparent victim of a brutal beating, the NATIONAL ENQUIRER has learned exclusively. Miami police are investigating.

Prody suffered a severe head injury and massive bruises all over her body, sources told The ENQUIRER.

While O.J. says that Prody's injuries are self-inflicted and explained that the 32-year-old woman went on a drunken binge and fell down, cops aren't convinced, insiders say.

Investigators said from the damage to Prody's body, they believe she was beaten. One detective said he has never seen such severe bruises on a woman before.

Police detectives are questioning Simpson at his home today, and are conducting an ongoing investigation into what happened to Prody.

Prody, 32, was rushed to a Baptist Memorial Hospital in Miami Feb 11 after she collapsed at a local gas station.

Police were alerted by hospital authorities after doctors found she was bleeding from her brain — and also had numerous large bruises and abrasions on her face, arms, legs and buttocks.

Prody had spent ten days with O.J.'s friends in San Antonio until she returned to Miami on Feb. 11. Simpson was with her until Feb. 4 when he returned to his Kendall home.

Simpson told police Prody's wounds were self inflicted and that she had been on a drinking binge.

When Prody was brought into the hospital, there was no trace of alcohol in her blood, sources told The ENQUIRER.
