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

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.

Ryan O'Neal: Why I Wrote About Farrah Fawcett

It was 30 years of highs and lows for Ryan O'Neal and longtime love Farrah Fawcett, but on Tuesday, nearly three years after her death, it all came down to this: 272 pages.

However, O'Neal, 71, who was recently diagnosed with stage 2 prostate cancer, said his memoir about their lives isn't a tell-all. Both of Us, which arrived in stores Tuesday, was published to honor those 30 years.

"Well, I wrote it because I missed her, and it was a way to keep the line between us going," he said on Tuesday's Today show. "I still felt she was there when I wrote this."

Redmond O'Neal Avoids Prison, Gets More Rehab

Originally posted 08/24/2011 03:15PM

Redmond O'Neal narrowly dodged a prison sentence Wednesday after a judge agreed he needed more treatment.

O'Neal, 26, pleaded no contest to felony gun and heroin possession in a Los Angeles courtroom and was sentenced to one-year inpatient treatment. The troubled son of Ryan O'Neal and the late Farrah Fawcett will remain on probation for the next five years.

In a joint statement, O'Neal's attorneys Richard Pintal and Michael Brewer told PEOPLE: "We are pleased and grateful that the judge gave Redmond further treatment rather than incarceration. His history of addiction warrants this approach."

Academy Apologizes for Farrah Fawcett Snub

Originally posted 03/10/2010 06:30AM

It was no oversight. The executive director of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has apologized to the friends, family and fans of Farrah Fawcett, who was conspicuously omitted from Sunday night's Oscar-event tribute to Hollywood personalities who had died over the past year.

While some agents and publicists, besides actors, were included in the memorial, Fawcett, a high-profile star better known for her TV work (who also appeared on the big screen), was not. Neither was Gene Barry – who was seen in both versions of War of the Worlds – or Bea Arthur.

Among those criticizing the Academy for its selective omissions were critic Roger Ebert and Oscar-winner Jane Fonda.

In response, the Academy's Bruce Davis, who was responsible for the "in memoriam" segment (and has been since the tradition began in 1993), said late Tuesday: "There's nothing you can say to people, particularly to family members, within a day or two of the show that helps at all. They tend to be surprised and hurt, and we understand that and we're sorry for it."

Redmond O'Neal, appearing in court Wednesday for a status hearing on his judge-ordered drug rehab, tells PEOPLE that his late mother Farrah Fawcett is on his mind as he fights addiction.

"I'm doing great. I am focused on my recovery and plan not to let anything get in the way," O'Neal, 25, says. "I am doing my best to make my mother proud."

As part of the evaluation, L.A. Superior Court Judge Michael Tynan eliminated all home visits for O'Neal, who is in a one-year residential facility, telling him, "Right now, pal, you are still in trouble. You need to take a good look inside or nothing will ever change."

O'Neal's incarceration stems from a January 2008 drug arrest and a probation violation. He's scheduled for another progress report on April 7.
