Ryan O'Neal Being Sued Over Farrah Documentary

Ryan O'Neal is being sued over the documentary about Farrah Fawcett that is scheduled to air tomorrow. Craig Nevuis claims he’s the one who created the documentary and was axed from the project by O’Neal and others. He also claims O’Neal “physically threatened him.”

Nevius made a deal with Farrah back in 2004 and did a documentary about her life called Chasing Farrah. He then claims that he began working with her on the current documentary but then O’Neal “began to take actions to wrongfully interfere” with his contract with Farrah.

He goes on to say that O’Neal contacted him and demanded that he turn over control on the project to him, and when he declined to do it, O’Neal physically threatened him. TMZ reports that Nevius says O’Neal threatened to kill him.

Farrah and Ryan’s rep Paul Bloch released a statement today about Nevius, saying, "I am shocked by this type of behavior. Here's a woman who everyone knows has been ill and to do something like this is horrific. This has been a very difficult time for Ryan O'Neal. When you see something like this you have to question the motives of someone who can be so hurtful during this very sensitive time in a person's life."

Nevius is suing for a declaration from the court that he has a binding deal to manage the project. He's also suing for damages.

Do you think he’s just out for the money? Or is he owed something because he was the one who made the deal with Farrah first? We all know Ryan O’Neal has problems of his own, so we wouldn’t put it past him to threaten Nevius like he claims. Either way, it’s just sad that Farrah is yet again in the middle of a legal mess.
