A Harpo rep tells THR online rumors are "not true."

Oprah Winfrey hasn't landed that confession from O.J. Simpson -- yet.

Despite a National Enquirer report that Simpson confessed from prison to murdering ex wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, a rep for Harpo tells The Hollywood Reporter, "That's not true."

Oprah has said she's determined to get Simpson's confession. He was acquitted or the murders in 1995.

Speaking at NCTA’s annual Cable Show in Chicago last week, she said, "I have a dream of O.J. Simpson confessing to me" as the audience cheered.

"And I am going to make that happen people," she promised, admitting it was "not that lofty" of a goal.

“I don’t just want the interview,” Oprah continued. “I want the interview on the condition that you are ready, Mr. Simpson.”

Her follow-up show, Oprah's Next Chapter, premieres on OWN in January.

Simpson was reportedly going to admit to the murders in a book called "If I Did It…." After the book sparked outrage, HarperCollins cancelled the plans and publisher Judith Regan was forced out later that year.
