No need to get yourself in your son's old cell, Ry!
Sources have learned that a producer is facing a lawsuit from Ryan O'Neal and Richard Francis on behalf of Farrah Fawcett’s estate for not relinquishing control of her documentary. The producer, Craig Nevius, filed court papers this morning, detailing an incident where Ryan threatened his life if he didn't hand the rights over! The papers say:
“In September 2008, Ryan O’Neal contacted Mr. Nevius and wrongfully demanded that Mr. Nevius relinquish control of SBR and the Film to a producer of his choosing. When Mr. Nevius refused, Mr. O’Neal threatened to kill him.”
The court papers go on to explain that this is not the first time that Ryan has gotten violent towards Craig. The filing reveals that in April of last year, Craig claims Richard insisted he stay away from Farrah under a threat of "physical violence" stating "… you better not appear at Farrah’s. Because you’re gonna get your ass kicked in by Ryan! And I mean it!’”
Violence isn't the answer! Plus, you don't need any more damage to your credibility, Ryan!
