Tatum O'Neal -- who has struggled with addiction for years -- is back in rehab in Southern California, and her father, legendary actor Ryan O'Neal, has been visiting the Academy Award winning actress regularly, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
"Tatum recently went back to rehab last month, and she is at a facility in Orange County. Ryan has been visiting her regularly because he is so concerned about her. They are working on their complicated relationship. Tatum is just really truly struggling with who she is as a person. It's very sad to see her still suffering from her addiction to cocaine," a source close to the situation tells us.
As we previously reported, Tatum, 48, voluntarily checked back into a rehab facility in February after having a full-fledged cocaine relapse. Tatum is currently in a different facility than where she was previously.
Meanwhile, Tatum's younger brother, Redmond, got a glowing progress report in his felony drug possession case in court on Tuesday. Redmond formally pleaded no contest to a felony possession of heroin and a firearms charge after he was pulled over by cops in Venice Beach, Calif. last summer. Redmond was sentenced to one year of intensive rehab therapy by Judge Keith Schwartz.
"Redmond is on track to complete his court ordered rehabilitation and if all continues to go well, at his next court date in October, the judge has indicated that he will set aside the state prison sentence, and place him on five years felony probation," O'Neal's famed attorney, Richard Pintal told us yesterday.
