Farrah Fawcett and Redmond O’Neal both broke down in tears when Redmond was let out of jail for a few hours to visit his mother Saturday, learned exclusively.

It was highly emotional – and unusual -- meeting when sheriff’s officials drove Redmond from jail to visit Farrah after a judge signed a removal order, which is sealed.

Redmond was handcuffed and wearing his prison jump suit when he was brought to Farrah.  The handcuffs were removed so he could hug and kiss his mother, learned.

During the three-hour visit both Farrah and Redmond cried many times, a source close to the situation told A highly emotional Farrah told Redmond that she was sorry for any mistakes she made raising him and that she wasn’t always there for him.

But Redmond told his mother not to blame herself for his multiple drug-related arrests. He told her that he was going to kick drugs this time, for her.


Farrah was torn with emotion, happy to see her son again, yet distraught to see him in prison garb. Redmond was equally emotional, and upset at his  mother’s appearance.

Although some people around Farrah have tried to downplay the seriousness of her illness, even her own doctor has announced publicly that her cancer has spread from its site of origin to her liver and metastasized.

It is highly unusual for a prisoner to be released for a visit in these circumstances. These types of visits are usually reserved for gravely ill relatives, funerals or other emergencies. And although other news reports have downplayed the seriousness of her condition, her appearance shocked Redmond.

"Farrah's far from well," a source told The source added that Redmond was highly emotional over her appearance and felt that she looked much older than the last time he had seen her.
