Producer Testifies He Believes Ryan O’Neal Stole Warhol Portrait Of Farrah Fawcett
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A reality television producer has told a jury that he believes Ryan O’Neal stole an Andy Warhol portrait of Farrah Fawcett from the late actress’ home.
Craig Nevius testified Wednesday he made the conclusion, in part, based on conversations he had with Fawcett.
Nevius collaborated with Fawcett on the reality series “Chasing Farrah” and a documentary on her battle with cancer. He provided the University of Texas at Austin with photos and video footage that are being used as evidence in the university’s fight against O’Neal over ownership of the artwork.
O’Neal testified on Monday that he was given the portrait by Warhol in 1980 and removed it from her condominium with permission of the trustee of Fawcett’s estate.
The actress left all her artwork to her alma mater.
