California AG Investigating the Farrah Fawcett Foundation

Hemera/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) -- The California Attorney General's Office of Charitable Trust is investigating the Farrah Fawcett Foundation for potential mismanagement of funds, diversion of assets and fraud, ABC News has learned exclusively through numerous sources including Fawcett's longtime friend and former college boyfriend, Greg Lott.

The foundation became active after Fawcett's death in June 2009 from her long and much-publicized battle with cancer, according to attorney Jane Peebles, counsel to the foundation.

ABC News has been told both the Farrah Fawcett Foundation and the Farrah Fawcett Living Trust, which funds the foundation, have been notified and ordered to turn over their financial records and estate planning documents. Sources also say they were given 60 days to comply. The deadline is believed to be sometime in September 2011.

Lott says the California Attorney General's office has been quietly interviewing friends, business associates and several beneficiaries of Fawcett since early July.

Richard B. Francis, the trustee of the estate and chairman of the foundation, as well as Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O'Neal's former business manager, calls the investigation a witch hunt and says the foundation has done nothing wrong. Nevertheless, he says the foundation is cooperating fully with the investigation.

Alana Stewart, president of the Farrah Fawcett Foundation, says the foundation is following Farrah's wishes and calls the investigation outrageous.

The California Attorney General's office refused to comment for this story saying, "we don't confirm or deny the existence of investigations."

Redmond O'Neal Arrested on Drug Charge, Again

ABC News(SANTA MONICA, Calif.) -- reports Redmond O'Neal has been arrested on a drug charge once again. The 26-year-old son of Ryan O'Neal and the late Farrah Fawcett was stopped by police in Santa Monica Tuesday morning for running a red light, at which time officers reportedly found heroin in his vehicle.

O'Neal, was booked for violating felony drug probation and for being in possession of a controlled substance, and was also ticketed for running the red light.  Though he was found to not be under the influence when he was arrested, he is being held without bail pending a court appearance on Thursday. O'Neal could land back in prison for the probation violation.

O'Neal has been battling addiction for years, and was sent to jail in 2009 after being caught with heroin in the visitor's parking lot of the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic, California; a judge allowed him to temporarily leave jail so he could attend his mother's funeral after she died of cancer in June 2009.

Ryan O'Neal Sues Former Farrah Fawcett Assistant

Jason Merritt/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Ryan O'Neal is suing the personal assistant of his late partner Farrah Fawcett, claiming comments the assistant made to the media resulted in the University of Texas filing a suit against the actor last week.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the university is asking O'Neal to return an Andy Warhol portrait of Fawcett that it says belonged to the Charlie's Angels actress, who left her art collection to her alma mater upon her death in 2009. O'Neal now says the portrait belongs to him and that Craig Nevius falsely alleged that O'Neal stole it. O'Neal is seeking more than one million dollars in damages.

Nevius, who worked on a documentary about Fawcett's battle with cancer, tells he believes O'Neal's defamation lawsuit is an attempt to "harass me into silence." Nevius previously sued O'Neal over the documentary, claiming O'Neal interfered with his work, but the complaint was ultimately dismissed.
