EXCLUSIVE: Farrah Fawcett's friends say Ryan O'Neal won't let her see the German doctor who treated her cancer and extended her life

Farrah Fawcett’s Hollywood friends say Ryan O’Neal is stopping the iconic actress’s German doctor from treating or visiting her in what appears to be the final stages of her battle with cancer, and denying the Hollywood legend one last chance at survival.

Dr. Ursula Jacob took over Farrah’s anal and liver cancer treatment in 2007, after doctors in the United States said they could not help her. She arrived in Los Angeles from Germany last month with more experimental therapies that she said could extend the actress’ life or put the cancer in remission.

“Dr. Jacob was out here and told Farrah there was experimental treatment that she should try because at this point there’s nothing anyone else can do for her,” says producer Brett Hudson, who was treated with Farrah at the various kliniks in Germany.

“From what I’m told, Farrah tried the treatment for four days, but stopped because it made her feel sick. I know how sick she was. I was that sick, too. But that’s part of the process. Farrah stopped, and Ryan, who is now the gatekeeper, stopped all communication with Dr. Jacob.

“Dr. Jacob has tried to get in touch with Farrah. From what I’ve been told, Ryan shut her out. What do Farrah’s Hollywood friends think? The people you guys call ‘Farrah’s Hollywood friends’ are appalled! Dr. Jacob took on Farrah’s case after doctors here said there was nothing they could do for her. She did everything here, radiation and chemotherapy and it didn’t work. Only then did the doctors say, ‘You might as well try Germany.’

“That was almost two years ago. Dr. Jacob extended Farrah’s life. Now the doctor says she has nothing to lose. And after four days she stopped.

The latest outcry follows accusations from Greg Lott, Farrahs’ college beau and business partner that O’Neal suddenly cut off his access to his dear friend since the actor took over Farrah’s affairs on Easter.

O’Neal also took over control of the personal cancer documentary Farrah and her producing partner Craig Nevius had been preparing for two years. Nevius is suing, claiming the takeover was unlawful and that the final product, drastically reshot and re-edited by NBC News personnel, did not reflect Farrah’s visions and hopes for the documentary.

The documentary, which was turned into the NBC entertaiment special “Farrah’s Story,” a maudlin feature focusing on Farrah’s “love story" with O’Neal (star of the movie “Love Story”), was edited to diminish the credibility of Dr. Jacob and her colleagues, who use cutting edge, state-of-the-art treatment that is either not approved or used widely in the States.

In publicizing the TV product in which he played a big role, O'Neal said that Farrah's cancer treatment "had pretty much ended."

Hudson says his own cancer documentary project, Frozen PicturesThe Klinik, will hit many of the tough issues removed from Farrah’s documentary.

He adds: “She’s in and out. She’s nearing the end.

“Ryan has shut Farrah off from everyone except for her American doctor and Alana Stewart. As far as we know, they’ve stopped all treatment. It’s pretty f---ing scary.”

This is terribly DISTRUBING! Sounds like MURDER to me!

Can't somebody do something? Can't Farrah's father get involved? Granted, the man is 91 years old, BUT he still seems to be in good shape for his age ... FUCK!, he's in better shape than Ryan O'Neal!!!!

There is definatly something wrong going on. This is going to be ONE BIG HOLLYWOOD SCANDAL! I think that is what Ryan is out for. He is hardly remembered as a movie star (he had what? two movies?,), so maybe he's doing this to surely be remembered, as KILLING ONE OF THE BIGGEST SEX SYMBOLS OF ALL TIME!

Never in a million years, did I think Farrah Fawcett's life would end like this! Such a shame!

this is heartbreaking and senseless
If Ryan cared anything at all for Farrah he would do what ever it takes to extend her life
What this says about him is down right scary.................he will be forever remembered as the man who helped kill Farrah- cancer may have started it but Ryan is making sure he finishes the job............

is there no one out there who will intervene on her behalf???

What about her son as executor of her wishes? Where is Redmond (legally) in all of this? Even though he's incarcerated, he could probably override his father's control.

I am not familar with California law but SOMETHING MUST BE DONE NOW because TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE!!!!!!!

Someone needs to file an emergency motion to have Farrah appear before the court OR petition for an appointment of a conservator over her person and estate due to her incapacitated state.

A conservatorship is a formal, legal authorization for the conservator - usually a spouse or domestic partner, family member, close friend, or hired professional - to make decisions for the benefit of the protected person. It restricts the conservatee’s powers over his or her own personal care and/or financial decisions. It is particularly useful when the protected person is mentally or physically unable to understand and accept help, or is vulnerable to persons who might take financial advantage of them. In that situation, with the appropriate court order, a conservatorship can prevent a vulnerable person from marrying, contracting with, or conveying property to someone else without the approval of the conservator and in some situations, the court.

Due to Farrah's highly publicized condition, I believe that an emergency motion or appointment would be granted because there is good cause.

Has anyone noticed on Farrah's website the latest news? Whoever is running the website, (being Lott or Craig), are now asking for fans to 'HELP PAY FOR FARRAH'S MEDICAL EXPENSES'!!!

I'm sorry, BUT this doesn't sound right AT ALL!!!!!

What? Farrah's broke now??? OR are people trying to make a profit off of her with the excuse of her illness??

I don't know, BUT I was supporting Craig and Lott these past few months, BUT this has got me questioning them! It doesn't mean that Ryan O'Neal or Alana Stewart are 'off the hook' with me. I still don't trust them!

So I'm urging fans DO NOT TRUST ANYONE OF THESE PEOPLE .... SOMETHING DOESN'T SEEM RIGHT! I now think that fans are being taken advantage of!

I don't know, it's hard to know why anyone would cut a person off from people in the last few days or weeks of a persons life. If Ryan cut Farrah off from people in an attempt to get her money then shame on him. Hopefully Farrah already had a will in affect. There could be any number of reasons why Ryan would shut Farrah off from people, we can sit up here and speculate but that's all it would be. I'm concerned for Redmond, Farrah's son, and what will happen to him in the future. I just hope he gets away from Ryan and builds some strength and stops looking to Ryan as any type of example of how a person should conduct their life. As for Ryan and anything he might have pulled the last minute, he will have to live with that. I think a person reaps what they sow and sometimes sooner than later. Farrah is at peace now, we lost a beautiful person last Thursday June 23 but she isn't suffering anymore. Rest In Peace Farrah!!
