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

Originally posted 05/01/2012 11:10AM

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."

Their father-daughter relationship was torn by run-ins with the law and battles with addiction. For a while, they didn't even speak to each other – for 25 years.

But now, two years after Tatum and Ryan O'Neal reconnected following the death of his longtime love, Farrah Fawcett, they were able to put their differences aside – and put on their dancing shoes – to reach out to those in need at the Hollywood Arts Center for homeless and at-risk young adults.

"My dad loves to dance. He's been dancing since I remember," Tatum, 47, says in a preview of the finale of their OWN show, Ryan and Tatum: The O'Neals. "So it was great to see him dance because he's quite a good dancer."

For Ryan O'Neal, it was a sadly familiar scene: his son Redmond standing before a judge expressing exasperation over Redmond's latest drug-related troubles with the law.

Only this time, it was different. The long-troubled 26-year-old Redmond faces not only a much more severe penalty, including a long prison term, but a new psychological burden.

"He never recovered from the loss of his mother," Ryan told PEOPLE Thursday outside the Los Angeles Superior Court after Redmond pleaded not guilty to two charges, felony possession of heroin and being a felon in possession of a handgun.
