Christie Prody recently told "Inside Edition" that her ex-boyfriend O.J. Simpson was "very charming," but he often threatened her and compared her to Nicole Brown Simpson after he was famously acquitted of his ex-wife's murder.

Prody was 21 when she started dating the 46-year-old Simpson. The ex-NFL star had just been acquitted of Brown's murder, but often compared his new girlfriend to his ex-wife.

“I was young and so he could try to shape me, mold me, into what he wanted," Prody, now 38, alleged in the interview. She also said Simpson wanted her to dye her hair blonde to look more like Nicole.

“It was very hard to deal with that everyday, comparing me to Nicole. ‘Nicole did this, Nicole did that. You should do this, that’s what she did,'” Prody said, according to the The New York Post.

Prody, now 38, also claimed that Simpson threatened her.

“He would say things to me like, ‘You better watch out so something bad doesn’t happen to you like Nicole,'" she said.

Prody and Simpson ended their 12-year relationship in 2008, shortly after he was arrested for armed robbery in Las Vegas. He is now serving a 33-year prison sentence.
