Ryan O'Neal Is Suing Over Warhol Claims

| Filed under: Legal MattersRyan O'Neal

Craig Nevius has been after Ryan O'Neal for years about a painting done by Andy Warhol (valued at $30 mil) of the late Farrah Fawcett.

Nevius claims, because Farrah left all of her art collection to the University of Texas, that Ryan stole the Warhol and has kept it illegally.

Ryan says that because Andy was a close friend, the painting was actually given to him, and because of all the things that Nevius has claimed, Ryan is entitled to defamation damages:

Last month, "Good Morning America" and Star Magazine ran stories that O'Neal was being investigated for theft — something O'Neal calls "false, malicious and defamatory."

The stories triggered a demand from the University of Texas that O'Neal turn the portrait over, stat.

O'Neal says Nevius has been wretched for years, selling medical information about Farrah to the tabloids as she battled cancer. He says he's suffered "humiliation, mental anguish and emotional distress," and he's been damaged in excess of $1 million.

Has he really cause that amount of pain to you, Ryan, or is this your way of telling him to back off? Just because people are pestering you doesn't mean you're experiencing $1 mil+ of that.

The real question is: who's telling the truth here? Wasn't there an exact list of Farrah's art to be given away? Where's that? Why WOULDN'T there be??

Do U think Ryan has grounds to sue? Who is telling the truth here?!

    This guy has no credibility…he is a joke and certifiably crazy….wish he would go away…

    He's been around since the 60's and has a great fillm career and was together with our beloved Farrah…..that's all I care about. I don't give a crap about all this nonsense. I love to think about Ryan being Ryan from Love Story and Paper Moon, etc. The whole Farrah thing is their business and I remember a time when actors/actresses used to just be in the movies and, once in a while, we would hear something personal and really didn't care. We're way too into these celebrities lives now and it ruins the fantasy big time! Anyone, and I mean anyone can be a celebrity now…..THE MAGIC IS GONE! KIM KARDASHIAN, REALLY?

    Ryan O'Neal is one of the worst people to ever live. He fucked up the lives of all of his children, irreparably, he sold out his lover, and he bragged about being attracted to his own daughter at his lover's funeral. He stole Farrah's money, art and destroyed her friendships. Just kill yourself, O'Neal. You're vermin.

    After watching one episode of Tantrum's TV Show……I believe every word she said about that horrible father of hers!

    did you hear Sharon Osbourne rip him a new one when he didn't show up to do the show with Tatum?

    I STAND WITH & SUPPORT RYAN O'NEAL 100%. Craig J. Nevius, whom Farrah Fawcett herself FIRED, has been after 70 year old Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia patient in remission Ryan O'Neal far too long. Craig Nevius has been mad and retaliating because he's been told to Fuck Off!! The Warhol portrait was GIVEN to Ryan long before Farrah passed. Ryan O'Neal's Warhol portrait of Farrah Fawcett was NOT a part of Farrah Fawcett's art collection or possessions at the time of Farrah's passing. Yes Ryan has grounds to sue and Ryan Can and Will WIN !!

    after watching a few episodes of the show with Ryan and Tatum on OWN
    (Oprah's network- the show's name escapes me-sorry)
    my heart goes out to Tatum for the life she had because of the parents that she was born to
    her struggles over the years have been unfortunate but understandable when you see some of the interaction with her father
    she is dong a great job of trying to put all of that behind her permanently
    .
    and you see that Ryan will never change-he has a revisionist view of the kind of parent he was- leaving Tatum on the curb (emotionally speaking) and justifying it by saying he'd someday come back to the curb for her
    and you see him continuing in the same abusive vein with kicking his grandson out of the car

    OK all he talks about is Love Story and Paper Moon. How long ago was that? What has he done lately other than be on OWN with his daughter who I think needs to realize he is never going to be or apologize for anything he has ever done to her and all his kids. I think all his kids have had drug issues. He is only a celebrity because of the beautiful Farrah Fawcett and because of his kids getting in the news because of drug addiction. I wish for his kids a clean and sober life away from their dad. He needs to get a grip.
