LOS ANGELES (AP) — A judge says he’ll allow one of Farrah Fawcett’s nurse assistants to testify that the late actress told her an Andy Warhol portrait hanging in her home was owned by Ryan O’Neal.

Superior Court Judge William MacLaughlin ruled Thursday that the woman can be called in a trial over ownership of the artwork, even though she stepped forward with the information just last month.

The University of Texas at Austin is asking a jury to determine Fawcett left the school two Warhol portraits of her, and that O’Neal should hand over his version.

Maribel Avila told the judge she contacted O’Neal’s lawyers after seeing a story about the case in the New York Post.

The school objected to allowing Avila to testify since she wasn’t disclosed as a witness earlier.
