It’s getting even uglier. Another of Farrah Fawcett’s trusted circle has spoken out against the lawsuit against producer Craig Nevius, which was supposedly instigated in her honor.
Photographer Lisa Boyle labeled the legal claim “a load of s—” and “one big lie” in an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com.
“Farrah would not have wanted what is going on,” said Boyle, who met Fawcett on the set of the 2004 reality show “Chasing Farrah” and remained a confidante up until her death from cancer last year.
Last week, Farrah’s estate filed a lawsuit against Nevius, accusing him of misappropriating funds and selling out the star by leaking information and footage without her approval.
Nevius is already suing O’Neal, Fawcett’s friend Alana Stewart and business manager Richard B. Francis over the NBC television special “Farrah’s Story,”
accusing them of forcing him out.
According to the suit, when the producer turned in his cut of the film, it was “amateurish and sensationalized, and looked like tabloid journalism.
“Which was not at all what Ms. Fawcett wanted,” the suit alleges.
But Boyle told RadarOnline.com that Farrah approved of the never-before-seen cut of the documentary, titled “A Wing & A Prayer.”
“I went over to Craig’s house to watch a cut of the documentary and I was crying because it was so moving,” she said. “Craig called Farrah to have me
speak with her and pass on my reaction.”
“Farrah told me, ‘Oh, it’s all because of Craig. He is in charge of this production and it is all because of him that this has come together. He has done an amazing job.’ Farrah was raving about him as a producer and she valued him even more as a friend.”
Boyle is the latest to speak out against the clique of O’Neal, Stewart and Francis.
Earlier this week, Farrah’s former personal assistant Mike Pingel defended Nevius. Former Charlie’s Angel Kate Jackson has also gone on the record to question the law suit.
“I like Ryan, I have shot Ryan and I have never had anything against him,” added Boyle.
“But what he and those in his group are doing is wrong. It is wrong to lie and this is one big lie.”
Still, there are plenty who see both camps as trying to profit off Farrah’s name long after her death.
