Ryan’s spokesperson Arnold Robinson of Rogers & Cowan told Star: “This is a completely ridiculous lawsuit. Ryan’s friendship with Andy Warhol began 10 years prior to his meeting Farrah Fawcett. When Ryan inttroduced Farrahto Andy Warhol, he chose to complete two portraits of her, one for Miss Fawcett and one for Mr O’neal. Mr O’Neal looks forward to being completely vindicated in the courts.”

Star magazine broke the story that O’Neal had possession of the Warhol painting and the university believed it belonged to them.
