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 fire back and is now filling a challenge agains the lawsuit against him. He claims that Ryan is wrongly suing him for excercizing his right to free speech on an issue of public concern.

Hmm. Good point. He is allowed to provide his version of the truth without persecution.

What do U think? Should Ryan be allowed to sue this guy or should he just walk away from it all?
