Ryan O'Neal Can Keep Farrah Fawcett Portrait by Andy Warhol

Originally posted 12/20/2013 07:30AM

For most of the last 33 years, an Andy Warhol portrait of Farrah Fawcett has hung in the home of her longtime lover, Ryan O'Neal, and a jury's verdict Thursday ensures that is where it will stay.

For nearly a month, O'Neal has been in a courtroom as lawyers for the University of Texas at Austin sought to gain possession of the portrait, arguing that Fawcett bequeathed the artwork to the school upon her death from cancer in 2009.

O'Neal, 72, fought back and testified last week that the portrait was his closest remaining connection to Fawcett. The actor's descriptions of talking to the portrait and feeling the presence of the Charlie's Angels actress were among the last words that jurors focused on, asking to hear his testimony again Thursday morning.
