Farrah Fawcett has left longtime boyfriend Ryan O’Neal out of her will. The late actress left a majority of her estate to the couple’s troubled son, Redmond, as well as her father and her ex-lover, Greg Lott. It’s rumored that Farrah and Lott had reconnected near the end of her life, but that Ryan was trying to keep them apart. If you recall, all of Ryan O’Neal’s children- Redmond, Tatum and Griffin- slammed the actor publicly after Farrah’s passing, claiming that the only reason he came back to Farrah in the end was because he was hoping to be included in her will. Perhaps Farrah knew that – and made sure he wasn’t.
Farrah Fawcett left $4.5 million to her son Redmond, $100,000 to an ex-lover and nothing to long-time love Ryan O’Neal and the other cast of characters who fought over her cancer documentary during the star’s final days.
RadarOnline.com has exclusively obtained a copy of Farrah’s will and it reveals that she did not get her final wish – to die at home.
The will was updated for the final time on August 9th, 2007. Farrah died from anal cancer on June 25, 2009 at age 62.
In the will Farrah made clear that she wanted to die at home.
In paragraph 5.2 a the will states: “”Settlor (Farrah) declares that she wishes to remain at home for as long as possible during any period of illness or incapacity and to die at home.”
The former Charlie’s Angel star passed away at St. John’s hospital in Santa Monica, California.
In addition to leaving the bulk of her fortune to son Redmond, the official documents reveal Farrah left $500,000 to her nephew Greg Walls, $500,000 to her father James and $100,000 to ex-lover Greg Lott.
Ryan O’Neal, Craig Nevius and Alana Hamilton all were not named in the will. Alana filmed much of Farrah’s final documentary and wants to release a part two. Ryan claimed he asked Farrah to marry him in her final days and made several tearful TV appearances.
Nevius claimed that O’Neal and Hamilton pushed him out of Farrah’s cancer documentary in her final days.
Lott spent the past few months claiming to various media outlets
that he was Farrah’s secret boyfriend. He told a British newspaper he last spoke to her April 9 and says that Ryan banned him from seeing her.
In an August 2009 Vanity Fair article, Redmond has this to say about his father: “All those crocodile tears! My dad’s only goal was to make sure he would be in the will. It was so disgustingly transparent as soon as he found out she was terminal. I consider him a vulture presiding over a carcass. Ryan thought he was going to get everything.”
This is also the article where Ryan tries to excuse cheating on Farrah with a girl young enough to be his daughter by blaming it on Farrah having menopause! God, he’s a jackass. I’m happy he didn’t get a dime of Farrah’s money, but I do wonder if giving millions of dollars to a junkie doing jail time was such a good idea. Perhaps a cancer research charity would have been a better way to go. I know Redmond is only 24, but he kind of seems like a lost cause at this point. I predict he’ll burn through that money in a year. But hey, it was Farrah’s final wish, and since she didn’t get to die at home like she wanted, her other requests should be granted. The only hope for this kid is to stay as far away from his father as possible.
