Redmond O'Neal's Family Speaks Out On His Ongoing Struggle With Drugs

Redmond Drug Relapse

Redmond O'Neal was pulled over for a traffic violation Tuesday when police allegedly found marijuana and heroin in his car.

The cops immediately arrested him, and searched his house where they found a loaded handgun.

According to his father, Ryan O'Neal, the poor guy never recovered from the death of his mother, Farrah Fawcett.

His sister, Tatum O'Neal, is hopeful but realistic, saying:

He's an addict. Addicts keep using until they want to stop. We're praying for him every day.

A judge ordered "tough love" for Redmond, keeping him locked up without bail until his hearing on August 24.

This is so incredibly sad. We hope this sends a message to him, because we don't want to see anything worse happening to Redmond!

    Poor guy.

    They use until they want to stop, or are dead. Won't be at all surprised when this guy is dead just like Winehouse.

    I can understand how he has had a hard time about his mother, but if she was still alive and healthy, I bet he would still be an addict. Being locked up will be torture - there is a theory that hard physical labor is beneficial for addiction (and a lot of other things). Being physically tired will not only increase his appetite, but it also gives the body a new stimulus. Anyone out there have any experience with this, or is it just a theory?

    He had NO EXCUSE like "a dead mom" before last year, so that dog don't hunt. Ryan has NEVER been a proper parent to his children. All he does on the reality show is WHINE about Farrah while his recovering daughter tries everything she can think of to break through with their relationship. Redmond can stay in jail for the rest of his life as far as I am concerned. Maybe he won't kill someone that way. You let him out again and he will just keep on using and dealing. Perhaps they should give him some community service in Los Angeles, away from Malibu — let him see what real life can be like!!

    Addiction is tragic. My heart goes out to him.

    I thought the 12-Step religious cult's "Higher Power" was a REAL higher power….

    After his Mom died i thought hewould stop the drugs.Since he has no desire to stop he should just call it quits,O.D. and be done with it.I f Ryan had been a father instead of a selg centered asshole maybe his kids could have avoided all their problems.

    Not sure what he lives for. Has he ever had a girlfriend (or boyfriend)? I've never seen him linked to anyone. I find him to be desperately lonely. Without some sort of spiritual aspect in his life, I don't know how he's going to make it. I feel for him and pray for a breakthrough.

    Re: Novel1
    soooo agree with you about Ryan
    i ony saw a bit of the reality show where he talked about leaving Tatum (emotionally) "at the curb" and trying to justify what he did by saying that he told her someday he'd be back to the curb to get her more or less if she just waited for him
    –just appalling!!
    and the scary thing is that even in retrospect he still feels that it was OK
    .
    so sadly Tatum, Griffen and Redmond never had a chance with him as a father
    and Tatum is struggling and working so hard to do well..
    I commend her efforts

    Amazing how two good looking people can have homely children. All of Ryan O'Neal's kids are fucked up!!!



  15. 15

    Why doesn't he open up a Hot Dog Stand in Malibu AND WORK?

    I feel so bad for Redmond. Reminds me of Sean Stewar twho My heart also goes out to.
    Parents who were never there.
    Rod Stewart screwed up his kids lives and..Redmond doesn't seem to have a chance.
    His father is a drug addict and wa so cruel he knocked his son Griffin's teeth out. HE NOW HAS A TV SHOW WITH DAUGHTER TATUM AND SHE WAS A DRUG ADDICT AND RYAN NEVER CARED ABOUT HER . HE DENIES HE WAS CRUEL TO HER AND WANTS HER TO APOLOGIZE TO HIM.
    IDIOT SICK IDIOT.
    REDMOND NEEDS SOMEONE TO CARE AND HE JUST DOESN'T HAVE IT YET.
    HE SHOULD DUMP HIS FATHER AND REALIZE HE HAS MILLIONS TO DO WHAT HE WANTS.
    FIND LOVE.
