The tweet, which was later deleted, came after Simpson was released from a Nevada prison.

Before his release, 70-year-old Simpson expressed a desire to return to Florida, but implied that the state's attorney general did not want him there.

Bondi wrote a letter to the Florida Department of Corrections Secretary Julie Jones asking that the department refuse to grant Simpson's request to be relocated to Florida upon release from prison. "Our state should not become a country club for this convicted criminal".

Simpson's lawyer, Malcolm LaVergne, said by text message on Sunday morning: "All information related to Simpson's whereabouts is confidential until (Monday) at the earliest".

However, Bondi said on "Fox and Friends" that she might have no legal way to keep Simpson out of Florida. It's not clear where.

8 News NOW will continue to monitor any developments on Simpson's release throughout the weekend.

State prisons spokeswoman Brooke Keast told The Associated Press she was not sure where Simpson went or who met him at the prison to pick him up.

He has also promised to address some of New Zealand's most pressing social issues such as child poverty and a housing shortage. No party has claimed a majority government in New Zealand's 120-seat parliament since proportional voting was adopted in 1996.

Simpson told parole officials that leading a group of men into a 2007 armed confrontation was an error in judgment he would not repeat.

During his parole Simpson won't be permitted to consume alcohol in excess or associate with ex-convicts.

Scotto said he spoke to Simplson recently and knows the former TV pitchman and actor is ready to resume his life on the outside. He was sentenced to 33 years but he was granted parole this past July for good behavior.

He is out on parole after serving nine years in Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada for armed robbery.

Florida corrections officials have said in the past that they must accept the transfer if Nevada's request meets the established criteria.

Simpson, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, has four adult children, two of whom live in Florida. He was acquitted of the crimes but later found liable for the wrongful death of Nicole and Ron and was ordered to pay damages to the families.
