Sydney Brooke’s childhood
Sydney Brooke was born on the 17th of October in 1985. After her parents divorced, Sydney and her brother, Justin Ryan Simpson lived with their mom, Nicole, in her Brentwood home in Los Angeles until the time of her death.
Sydney and her brother suffered at the hands of the unbecoming press following the gruesome death of their mother and they were only just children. Sydney was 9 years old, and her brother was 5 years old, at the time of their mother’s death.
After Nicole Brown’s death and O.J. was charged for her murder, their maternal grandparents, Louis and Juditha Brown, took them in as guardians. The guardianship status was revoked in 1996 after O.J. was found not guilty of their mother’s murder and awarded full custody of both children.
Sydney Brooke Simpson education
Sydney Brooke completed her High School Education at Gulliver’s Academy. She thereafter enrolled at Boston University and graduated with a BA in Sociology from the school’s College of Arts and Sciences in May 2010.
Following the heavily publicized trial of their father, family members tried very hard to shield Sydney Brooke Simpson and her brother from the prowling eyes of the public and press who were always seeking to interview them and ask the children questions about the murder.
They were successful with this at the time because no one heard anything about the children for a long time until a journalist tracked them down and found out that Sydney and Justin were working in a restaurant in Georgia and that Sydney had changed her name to Portia.
According to news gathered from her co-workers, Sydney Brooke Simpson always kept her head down at work and was always quiet.

Sydney Brooke’s career
Sydney Brooke Simpson started her career as an event coordinator in Atlanta, Georgia. She later moved to St. Petersburg, Florida, to start a business in catering. After that, she went into real estate and founded Simpsy LLC in 2014. The real estate company manages three companies she owns in the area.
In 2017, The New York Post discovered 13 properties acquired by Sydney Brooke and her brother since 2015. Eleven of them were cash purchases, all in low-income areas, with properties ranging from $35,000 to $215,000 (for a four-unit building). There are some questions as to where the Simpson kids found the money to make the purchases seeing that O.J. is still on the hook for over $30 million in a civil judgment.
Neither sibling provided a comment on the matter. By the looks of it, they (rightfully) prefer to keep a low profile.
