Oh boy!

Back in August, Ryan O'Neal landed in a bit of trouble with the University of Texas. The institute claimed that Ryan was in possesion of an Andy Warhol original painting that was promised to the school by Farrah Fawcett. While they have yet to claim the porttrait of Farrah done by Andy that they are after, they have collected other artifacts from Farrah's collection, including a Warhol "Napkin" that Ryan is insistent on getting back.

Therefore, he has filed a counter-suit against the school to get what he wants from them. The paperwork reads:

Ryan O'Neal Defamation Lawsuit Challenged

This again? UGH! Why?! Just let it die already! People are just so damn greedy!

For those of you who don't know, besides having to children in a lot of trouble, Ryan O'Neal is in a heap himself. He was sued early in July by the University of Texas, who claim that his late lover Farrah Fawcett left them all her artwork in her will, including an epsecially famous Andy Warhol portrait. However, Ryan insisted that the paiting belonged to him and refused to part with it. That's when Craig Nevius, who worked on the docuseries Chasing Farrah, stepped in and helped the university with his case. Ryan in turn sued him for defmation to the ring-a-ding sound of $1 million.

Yesterday, Craig decided to

Ryan O'Neal Is Suing Over Warhol Claims

Filed under: Legal MattersRyan O'Neal

Ryan O

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?!

Pippa Gets Her Own Tatler Cover

First Kate now Pippa.

Tatler magazine is showing the Duchess' little sister some love by featuring her on the cover of their latest issue.

Like her sister, Pippa didn't actually pose for the mag so they were forced to use a picture from the Royal Wedding.

Kinda lame, but at least it's better than the Andy Warhol treatment.

Ryan O'Neal Under Investigation For Yanking Farrah Fawcett's $30 Million Warhol Painting

Ryan O'Neal Thief

Not good!

In Farrah Fawcett's last will and testament, she promised TWO Andy Warhol silkscreen portraits to The University of Texas, but so far…they've only gotten ONE!

Where could the deceased actress' missing artwork worth $30 million possibly be?

Right where a lot of people may have expected it to be — in Ryan O'Neal's possession!

Despite the 70-year-old actor's claims that he has made every effort to honor Fawcett's requests, the University has hired a private investigator to track down the painting after being tipped off it may be in the O'Neal's possession.

What source leaked these bold accusations? Ryan O'Neal's OWN reality show!

The valuable portrait can be seen above the actor's bed in the FIRST EPISODE of Ryan and Tatum: The O'Neals.

Here's a tip for any amateur thief who's also seeking fame: If you're going to steal something and get away with it, don't let camera's for your reality show capture it hanging above your bed!

LOLz!

Even though that is pret-ty undeniable evidence, his own daughter even gives him away! In Tatum O'Neal's new book, Found: A Daughter's Journey Home, she mentions the portrait in question, writing:

"On every wall, there are pictures of us and the rest of the family in our golden days. The original poster from Paper Moon, Andy Warhol's portrait of Farrah."

We'd say the evidence is stacked pretty high against Mr. O'Neal, but yet his reps still claim, "All of Farrah's wishes expressed in her will have been fulfilled."

Innerestingly enough, she didn't leave her Ryan ANYTHING in her will either! Maybe he figured she owed him something and thought people wouldn't notice if he just took this little, tiny, $30 million piece of artwork?

Let's hope Ryan fesses up before things get ugly for him!

Filed under: Elizabeth Taylor

warhol-portrait-of-elizabeth-taylor-auctioned-for-almost-27-million

Not quite what they anticipated, but still a success, we'd say!

We reported after the death of Elizabeth Taylor that an Andy Warhol painting done of the icon, titled Liz #5, was to be auctioned off via Phillips de Pury & Company and estimated to sell for around $30 million!

Well, they weren't too far off, because at last night's event, it brought in an impressive $27 million!

Wonderful!

We hope wherever it ends up, her memory is honored and the work is well-maintained!
