Report: Farrah Leaves Estate to Son, Nothing to Ryan

Posted: 09:23 AM ET

Details of Farrah Fawcett's will have surfaced and reports indicate that the 70's television icon left her entire estate to her son, Redmond, and nothing for her longtime partner Ryan O'Neal.

The actress updated her will in 2007, after learning her cancer has spread into her liver. The majority of the actress's nearly $6 million estate was placed in a trust fund for her 24 year old son.

The Daily Mail reports, "Farrah appointed two trustees to make sure the money supports her son's journey into sobriety rather than giving him the means to destroy himself. Redmond's inheritance will be tightly controlled." O'Neal (who is also Redmond's Father) will not be one of the trustees.

Redmond, Fawcett's only child, has struggled with both drug and alcohol addictions. He is currently serving time in a Los Angeles jail, on drug-related charges. Once he is released, he will get a monthly allowance from the fund as well as money to buy a home.

I have always enjoyed Ms. Fawcett. She was good on Charle's Angels, but I particularly liked her on the Burning Bed and in the movie, "Jewel.". It is apparent how much she loved her son. It is also apparent how much she wanted to keep her son away from drugs. It is commendable that she chose to have trustees involved in her estate that were not family. I think that is the most wonderful gift that she could give to Redmond and Ryan O'Neal. She did not need to leave Ryan any money, she gave him the best give ever her son Redmond and hopefully he will start his life on a new track. God Bless Ryan and Redmond.

trustees need to be vigilant, he may squander it..or buy a fancy car & trash it or go around the world & who knows what he'll do...

God bless Farrah's father. He has lost his wife and both of his children. Nothing is worse than the loss of a child. It's unfortunate that parents of adult children who die are often forgotten. The trustees will have their work cut out for them.

Farrah loved her son very much and that's why she left the majority of her estate to Redmond. Hopefully, he will take time to reflect and realize that his Mother wanted nothing but the best for her son. He has an opportunity to turn his life around for the better and perhaps help those who are also on the same path that he followed. He could become a role model of sort. His Mother would be very proud that her legacy was all about healing. My sincere condolences are extended to her family. God Bless.
