Producer Denies Charges in Farrah Suit, Rips Ryan O’Neal

Producer Denies Charges in Farrah Suit, Rips Ryan O’Neal:

Craig J. Nevius is now responding to allegations against him, and taking aim at Fawcett’s former beau Ryan O’Neal and pal Alana Stewart.

Court documents revealed that Fawcett’s estate sued Nevius Friday, and claimed he embezzled “hundreds of thousands of dollars” from the late Charlie’s Angels star, according to Access Hollywood.

This occurred after she allegedly turned down his version of the documentary and gave creative control to O’Neal, the docs revealed.

“These accusations are nothing more than a fabricated press release disguised as a lawsuit,” Nevius said in a statement to E! News. “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.”

When Nevius does have his day in court, he said the documentary’s footage will reveal the truth of his relationship with Fawcett.

“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,” he said. “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.”

The documentary, which aired in 2009, chronicled Fawcett’s battle with cancer, before she passed away in last June.
