Ryan O'Neal gets zero, zip, zilch, nada from Farrah Fawcett's estate

November 17, 2009 | 11:22 am

Ryan Ryan O'Neal was at Farrah Fawcett's bedside in the days leading to her death in June, and he scored a "Thanks" credit on "Farrah's Story," the documentary chronicling her battle with cancer. He proposed, though they never married.

But it looks as if the bond between Farrah and the love of her life was more spiritual than material, according to trust documents acquired by RadarOnline. Ryan is getting exactly nothing from Farrah's estate.

The bulk of Farrah's bucks -- $4.5 million -- has been earmarked for son Redmond O'Neal, who learned of his mom's death while he was in L.A. County jail. Two trustees will handle the cash on his behalf. 

Farrah also left money to her dad, her nephew, longtime friend/boyfriend Greg Lott and her alma mater, the University of Texas. 

Lott doesn't think very highly of O'Neal, by the way.
