Battling cancer with all her fighting spirit, Farrah Fawcett has suddenly taken a turn for the worse, has learned exclusively.

The 62-year-old "Charlie Angels" star recently was spending time at long-time boyfriend Ryan O'Neal's home in Malibu, but Monday night her health deteriorated significantly, multiple sources told

"Ryan had to take her back to her home in Westwood," where she has more facilities to help her deal with her illness, one source said.

Another source said Tuesday night: "Right now, Ryan and other close friends are staying by her side."

Her son Redmond was granted a several-hour leave from jail, where he's being held on drug charges, on Saturday to visit his mother. Such visits

are highly unusual and mostly reserved for funerals and visits to gravely ill relatives.

Farrah's doctor recently stated publicly that the cancer she's been suffering from since 2006 had spread to her liver and metastasized. He stated that the actress weighs 101 pounds, but Redmond, in a court hearing, said his mother  weighs 86 pounds.

While some close associates of the woman whose red bathing suit poster made her the sex symbol for a generation have tried to downplay her

condition, people close to her say she is gravely ill. She has not been seen in public for months, except for photographs in a wheelchair when she recently returned from Germany where she had experimental cancer treatment.
