Ryan O'Neal

MY FAMILY IS 'FALLING APART'

8/4/2011 3:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Hours after one son was arrested for drug possession on Tuesday, his other son got into a gnarly head-on car accident -- and now, Hollywood legend Ryan O'Neal tells TMZ, his family is "falling apart."

The first son, 26-year-old Redmond O'Neal -- who has a long history with drugs -- pled "not guilty" to  heroin possession and unlawful possession of a firearm this morning ... but Ryan tells us, the kid "has a real problem."

Ryan hasn't seen his other son -- 46-year-old Griffin O'Neal -- in years ... but thankfully, he heard through the grapevine ... Griffin wasn't seriously injured in Tuesday's head-on collision.

All in all, Ryan's still optimistic despite the familial setbacks -- insisting, "We'll come back."

"We'll come back" = I haven't burned thru Farrah's cash.

Something can't fall apart if it was never put together.

You have to get rid of the old guy on the show...the annoying old guy with the gray beard; the recent addition. He is absolutely horrible. Is he some type of sponsor of the show? Does he pay for the production costs? He is so annoying and horrible. Stick with the young folks...like the cute gal with the dimples. The old dude is not clever, he is not witty, he is not original. He is horrible and if he stays I will stop watching. He sucks.

PS: I am an old dude; that guy just sucks. I'm sure he's an OK dude, but keep him off the TV.

Who is that woman walking with Ryan? Is that Tatum? If not, kinda creepy he's hanging out with a woman that looks so similar to his daughter.

I've got my own website and support TMZ on it as well!

Could it have anything to do with the fact he is a lowlife douchebag? Ryan O'Neal is the poorest excuse for a father in history. No wonder all his kids are so screwed up

All these kids are drug addicts and spoiled and need to take responsbility for their actions and stop blaming Ryan. They were given wonderful interesting lives and were spoiled rotten and did whatever they wanted. I am tired of hearing crack addict Tatum go on about her Dad - let him live in his world..move on.

What do you expect from your kids. Using drugs and alcohol is genetic in your family because you had problems and so did your late wife. Even so, setting good examples for our children is how they learn. What the hell kind of good examples have you ever shown your kids? Having said that, your grown children know the difference between right and wrong so part of this is their fault. Your family will never get better because you are such a looser!

Ryan, you are a no good azz, You abandoned your children to run off with Farrah so you can get laid - you should be ashamed. No woman or man is worth abandoning your child for and you did it to them. Get in touch with Griffin and beg for his forgiveness for being a miserable selfish father, same with Tatum and maybe with Redmond as well. All those kids deserve better than you. Now is the time for you to get off that high horse of yours and go to them and ask for their forgiveness for your selfishness. Your family is apart because of the lousy example YOU SET.

The thing is that these kids should take responsibility for their actions. But, Ryan deserted them when they were very young so he could go play. It isn't easy raising yourself when your parents are absent. Ryan never mentions that part, does he? Besides, I still can't over his TV interview a few weeks ago where he blamed Tatum for causing Farrah's cancer because of the stress Tatum caused. Ryan will always be a cruel fraud.

I was concerned when I read the news about the O'Neil family.
I'll be praying for them ,but they really need to get past their own agendas and self pity and come to God,recognize this is all sin,and ask for forgiveness by accepting what was done on the cross by Jesus,who took their(our,mine) place and overcame sin and death.
enough foolish pride folks.
Please consider becoming born again.You'll become a child of God and a new creation.
Best wishes.
