Farrah Fawcett, R.I.P.
UPDATE: Farrah Fawcett’s longtime companion, Ryan O’Neal, has issued a statement about Fawcett’s passing.
“She’s gone. She now belongs to the ages,” O’Neal says. “She’s now with her mother and sister and her God. I loved her with all my heart. I will miss her so very, very much. She was in and out of consciousness. I talked to her all through the night. I told her how very much I loved her. She’s in a better place now.”
O’Neal adds that Fawcett received her last rites before passing.
Fawcett, who was admitted to the hospital this week, died at 9:28 a.m. on Thursday at St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, California.
Fawcett was first diagnosed with anal cancer in 2006, and during a hospital visit earlier this year, it was revealed that the cancer had spread to her liver. She is survived by her longtime boyfriend, actor Ryan O’Neal, and their 24-year-old son, Redmond O’Neal.
