Former Charlie’s Angels star Jaclyn Smith broke down in tears before news cameras Monday as the battle over an Andy Warhol painting of Farrah Fawcett drew to a close.
Fawcett’s longtime love Ryan O’Neal is in a legal fight with the University of Texas over ownership of the artwork. It currently hangs above O’Neal’s bed in his Malibu home but Fawcett donated the work to her alma mater in her will. She passed away after a long battle with colon cancer in 2009.
Smith, who starred alongside Fawcett in the iconic 70′s crime fighting drama told reporters “Ryan was the love of her life” and that by keeping the portrait in his possession it would then be passed down to the couple’s only child, son Redmond.
“I think the most important thing would be imagining what Farrah would want. I really feel Farrah would want that portrait with Ryan.”
Six men and six women are deliberating the case Tuesday. RumorFix will give you an update when they reach a decision.
