In a lawsuit over an expensive piece of artwork, a series of heart breaking love letters sent by Farrah Fawcett have been discovered. The letters were sent from her deathbed and were not addressed to her long time lover Ryan O’Neal.
The late “Charlie’s Angels” star had sent the love letters to Greg Lott. Lott is now claiming that he was Farrah Fawcett’s college sweetheart and someone she had a secret 11 year affair with prior to her death from cancer on June 25, 2009.
The lawsuit was filed by Fawcett’s alma mater; the University of Texas against Ryan O’Neal over what the university said is a missing Andy Warhol portrait. Fawcett left the university a large portion of her artwork which was allegedly to include the Warhol portrait worth an estimated $30 million.
Lott, 67, is slated to be a star witness in the lawsuit testifying on behalf of the University of Texas. The trial is scheduled to begin in November in the Los Angeles Superior Court.
In a pre-trial deposition taken on October 24 last year, Greg Lott revealed details of the testimony he will be giving which are supposedly going to be details of Farrah Fawcett’s sex life, their affair and international travel all which was taking place behind Ryan O’Neal’s back. The love letters are said to contain details of her volatile relationship with O’Neal.
At the time of his deposition, Greg Lott told the lawyers, “I think those letters speak for themselves.” In one of the love letters, Farrah Fawcett asked Lott if he would be her Valentine.
Fawcett wrote, “Forever, until the end of time.” Lott contends that he’d had no intentions of releasing the letters and intimate pictures of Fawcett until O’Neal’s attorneys issued a statement in which they called him a convicted felon. In the statement, the attorneys also claim that he’s only trying to profit of a relationship that the attorney labeled “absurd and completely uncorroborated.”
Lott insists that it was only then that he decided to prove his relationship with Fawcett through those letters. Lott has also refused to be compensated for access to the love letters that Fawcett sent him.
In one of the letters that was penned at the height of Fawcett’s fight against anal cancer, she wrote “I miss you so much and sometimes the loneliness makes me cry.” The letter was written on December 8, 2007 while Farrah was in the hospital in Bad Wiessee which is in Bavaria, a southern German state.
The letter continued, “But this is a daunting journey one must take oneself and there is very little anyone else can do to help. I wonder if at the moment of surgery I can do it so I pray for strength and courage and it comes.”
In a letter dated, March 27, 2007, Farah was reeling from the news that she didn’t have long to live, Fawcett wrote of her love for Lott. “I love you with all my heart and just know I am getting stronger every day. Love always and forever, Farrah.”
Farrah Fawcett sent Lott letters on many different surfaces other than her personal stationary. One note was written on the back of a brown leaf she found while walking on a Mexican beach.
On the leaf Farrah wrote, “I’m sending you a piece of Maroma for your birthday. I brought this back from our love nest there.” Another time Farrah sent Lott a note written on a postcard with an angel on the front.
The postcard was in German and Fawcett translated the message to Lott writing, “Sometimes we have a little wish to send an angel to someone and for me that is you. Thinking of your always and love you forever.”
In yet another little note, Farrah wrote on a napkin she was given on an airline flight. “I had the most wonderful time with you. Everything was more than perfect. Thank you for making it so special.”
The last time Greg Lott spoke to Farrah was the night of April 9, 2009. Just two short months before she died, she was getting ready to return home after being treated for an abdominal hematoma at St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica.
Lott claims that during that call Farrah told him, “I’m coming home tomorrow. I love you and I will call you.” Unfortunately for Lott, he says he was never able to speak to her again because Ryan O’Neal refused to give him access to the actress.
Lott insists that when he didn’t hear from the Hollywood legend he flew up to her Wilshire Boulevard condo in Beverly Hills. He goes on to allege that O’Neal refused to allow him in to see Farrah Fawcett.
Farrah Fawcett watched as Lott dealt with drug use, two prison sentences and his battle with alcoholism. Lott who was the star quarterback at the University of Texas claims that, “I lost her to Hollywood. But I f***ed up twice and I wasn’t going to f**k it up again.”
In the deposition, Greg Lott stated he and Farrah got back together in 1997 after she split from O’Neal and claims that they were in a “committed relationship, exclusive.” A lawyer asked Lott during the deposition, “For the record, this was a romantic relationship?”
To which Lott responded, “Yes.” The attorney countered with “A sexual relationship?” Lott once again replied, “Yes. She saw no one else and I saw no one else but her.”
In another one of Fawcett’s letters to Greg Lott she wrote, “How sweet that we have been given the chance to grow up, grow wiser and I guess, older together. I’m grateful to still be a part of your life and benefit from your eternal optimism in so many ways.”
The lawsuit between the University of Texas and Ryan O’Neal is heating up with both sides throwing out accusations. At the heart of the lawsuit is the portrait of Farrah Fawcett done by Andy Warhol. The university claims that it was bequeathed to the university’s Austin, Texas campus.
O’Neal claims that Andy Warhol is the one who gave him the portrait. The claims prompted the university filed a motion with the court to force Ryan O’Neal to turn over any material that mentions the Warhol painting, including his journals.
O’Neal’s lawyers responded to the motion saying, “This request outrageously seeks 15 categories of documents over a 35 year period. It is overbroad, unduly burdensome, oppressive, compound and harassing.
When it comes to the love triangle between Ryan O’Neal, Greg Lott and Farrah Fawcett, one thing is clear, even though O’Neal claims that he and Fawcett had planned on marrying, it was Lott who was listed as an heir in her will. Fawcett didn’t leave anything to Ryan O’Neal.
