Is washed-up actor and fame whore Ryan O'Neal hiding an Andy Warhol painting worth a whopping $30 million? According to Star magazine, he sure is. While he may never do the time, it's becoming more and more apparent he did the crime. O'Neal is reportedly in possession of a portrait of Farrah Fawcett that was supposed to be donated to the dead actress' alma mater, the University of Texas. In her will, the Charlie's Angel left her entire art collection to the college, including two Warhol works. While the university did receive one of the famous works, the other went MIA after her death almost two years ago. And by MIA, we mean missing in O'Neal's Malibu mansion. Of course, it's no secret that Fawcett left absolutely nothing to her long-time lover O'Neal. In O'Neal's new reality show, Ryan & Tatum: The O'Neals, it's not a case of life imitating art, but life exposing art. In the first episode, the photo is captured hanging over his bed. And leave it to daughter Tatum to really sell dear old dad out. She mentions the painting in her new memoir writing, "On every wall, there are pictures of us and the rest of the family in our golden days. The original poster from Paper Moon, Andy Warhol's portrait of Farrah." Star reports that the university has been looking for Warhol's work and even hired a PI to investigate. O'Neal's rep maintains that "all of Farrah's wishes expressed in her will have been fulfilled." No word on what the next course of action for the University of Texas will be.
