Ryan O'Neal

Screw You UT

Farrah Is Mine

breaking news

1219-farrah-fawcett-andy-warhol-texasRyan O'Neal shockingly just won a huge lawsuit over who owns an extremely expensive Andy Warhol painting of Farrah Fawcett.

The University of Texas -- Farrah's alma mater -- sued Ryan, claiming the actress had gifted the painting to the school in her will.  Ryan, who is in possession of the Warhol, claimed the artist himself gave him the painting to show his appreciation for setting up the portrait sitting with his ex.

The value of the picture could be as high as $12 mil on the open market.

It seemed the will was going to sink Ryan, but the jury sided with Ryan.

Good thing.  Last week he told TMZ ... if he didn't win he'd die.

Tuxthepenguin, uh, time to move on. You've spent far too much time and emotion on an issue unrelated to you. Get a life.

Hopefully Ryan gives the painting to the University after he dies. That way everybody wins.

How much, Ryan? We all know you're gonna sell it. Because, ya know, you loved Farrah so much you just couldnt bear to look at it anymore.

The family will ultimately sell the painting. It's ultimately about the money it will get them, no sentimentality at all. She left it to her school, not Ryan. He was not in her will in fact.

Good for him...I think. I hope it does go to Redmond one day. Redmond seems be doing well. I'd like to see him have a good life away from the drugs.

Ryan O'Neal is a douche & a liar who treated Farrah like crap . He knows that she left that painting to the University yet he still went for the money grab. He's one miserable sob

If Andy did a nude of Farrah, that would be worth $100 mil

To the posters who keep howling about her will, Farrah did not have a "will". She had a Revocable Living Trust in which she left UT her art, but didn't give specifics. O'Neal was able to prove to the jury that the painting in question was originally his, and therefore not part of her collection. Give it a rest, the UT is not going to go broke over one old Warhol.
