Craig Nevius responds to Farrah lawsuit


"I will be happy to let the work Farrah and I did together
and Farrah's own words speak for me and defend me,
finally removing all doubt and suspicion as to what actually happened
during the final months of her life and who her real exploiters are."


We filled you in earlier this morning on the story behind the lawsuit by Farrah Fawcett's estate against Craig Nevius, the documentary producer who sued Farrah's sometime lover Ryan O'Neal and business manager Richard B. Francis for forcing him off Farrah's cancer project. Francis is the executor of the estate that filed suit against Nevius yesterday.

This morning, Craig Nevius sent us a statement in response, telegraphing his intention to call Farrah herself as a star witness from beyond the grave:

"These accusations are nothing more than a fabricated press release disguised as a lawsuit. As much as I would like to answer the allegations and disprove them right here and right now in the court of public opinion, I will wait to do so in a court of law. Out of respect to Farrah, I limited the focus of my lawsuit against Richard Francis, Ryan O'Neal and Alana Stewart to issues of contract interference. But it now seems that at least one of the defendants wants to widen the scope of litigation to issues of artistic integrity and the personal relationships between parties. If that is the case, I will be happy to let the work Farrah and I did together (over years) speak for itself. And I will be more than happy to let the video tapes, documents, witnesses and Farrah's own words (both written and spoken) speak for me and defend me, finally removing all doubt and suspicion as to what actually happened during the final months of her life and who her real exploiters are. This is a fight Francis, O'Neal and Stewart cannot win."

Anyone who saw that horrible NBC travesty on Farrah knows it's not what she wanted. I dearly hope her truth is told and this man is exonerated. Ryan has a lot to answer for. That Farrah didn't provide for him in her will, speaks volumes. She didn't trust him and he should be brought up on charges for undue influence over her as far as I am concerned.

Comment #1 was written by an idiot. Ryan not being in Farrah's will means NOTHING. He has his own money and they always kept their finances separate. She left it to her dad, son, nephew and that old car washer. Stop trying to make a story out of NOTHING. And the special was far from horrible. NBC said Craig's cut was unworthy of airtime; it was redone and watched by 9M people. Move on already, let her rest in peace.

Kate Jackson stands behind Craig Nevious.
It's about time! This is Ryan's lawyers doing this for Ryan not Farrah,she trusted Craig and this is just Ryan's way of getting revenge and postponing the case against him nbc and alana. The truth must really scare O'Neal.

Poor Kate Jackson. A month ago she was getting blasted on here by someone who said: 'who cares what she thinks', 'she was difficult and jealous on the Charlie's Angels set', 'she was a vicodin slob', 'her home is a mess'...blah, freakin, blah...and now somebody says she likes Craig so she's back to being a hero. Hard to keep up.

ddubbiedo,
You say you think Farrah didn't trust Ryan and you watched the NBC travesty. Did you see Ryan with Farrah in the doc?--filmed BY Craig AND Alana? Does it really look like she didn't trust him? Be fair, come on. She provided in her will for people that needed help. Why would she leave money to Ryan? Isn't he already wealthy?

RYAN IS A PIG FUCKER
I FUCKING HATE THAT PIECE OF SHIT
HE IS NOT AS RICH AS HE USED TO BE SO KNOCK OF ALL THE ALANA SLUT HO STEWART COMMENTS THAT RYAN HAD MORE MONEY THEN FARRAH.
IF HE WAS SO FUCKING WEALTHY WHY IS HE WRITTING A TELL ALL BOOK AND KEEPING HIS SON HIGH AND LOCKED AWAY.
FOR MONEY STUPID FUCKS

Farrah did not trust Ryan, that does not mean she did not have love for him. Ryan is a jerk because while Farrah laid dying, he took a 20 yr old girl out to the car for a quickie session. That's how Ryan showed his love for Farrah also he should be charged with distribution for getting Redmond heroin on Christmas. Some dad he makes!

RYAN WAS IN GERMANY TWICE. THEY EDITED TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE RYAN WAS HOLDING HER HAND ALL THE WAY THROUGH AND ITS NOT TRUE. I KNOW FIRST HAND YOU FUCKERS DON'T KNOW THE REAL TRUTH.
HE AND ALANA DID ALL THIS FOR A HUGE PAYOFF AND IT BACKFIRED BECAUSE 3 HOURS LATER MICHAEL JACKSON DIED AND FARRAH'S STORY WENT TO THE BACK BURNER AND FOR THAT IM GLAD SO NOW THOSE TWO MORONS WILL HAVE TO GO TO SOME CABLE NETWORK AND GET PAID SCALE FOR SOME ATTENTION.
NO OFFENSE TO FARRAH AS SHE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS, THIS IS ABOUT O'NEAL AND HO BAG STEWART

I have to agree anon jan 24th 1:53.
it seems strange that after she became very ill and not all concious all this drama started. and i saw that document handing ryan control and that looked very odd to me. im just saying what i believe, i mean if you really read and look at the whole picture ryan does not seem honest at all. as far as that alana person she seems very insincere to me. i watched some of her interviews promoting her book and she seemed like she is out to make money and does not care about anything or anyone except money.

all the people they claim are bad are really the only ones not out there talking about her every chance they get or hawking some book or in the process of doing a book or posing on farrah's balcony in designer clothes in vanity fair so soon after her death and ryan shirtless (yuk) sitting on her bed. so pathetic
really people get some sense

So funny to see Greg LOOT writing his comments in his crazy all CAPS. Seriously, so obviously him. Get a life LOOT. Take your money, spend it on drugs and kill yourself with an overdose.

Anonymous said...

Wow, does 'ALL CAPS' blogger have some anger issues, or what? "RYAN IS A PIG FUCKER" ?? Nice. Think about what you're saying, jerk.

Anonymous said...

ALL CAPS is 100% Greg Loot. Go to the newest FF story on this site and his latest entry basically admits it's him after being accused of being Loot, he signs off as "GUESS WHO LOL."

It's Loot. He's the one who is so angry that no one in FF's life will give him an ounce of credibility. He is a sad, old, ex-con who after taxes, has enough money to last him a year then he's back on the streets washing cars. LOSER.
