Can children cause cancer? Actor Ryan O'Neal seems to think that Farrah Fawcett would still be alive were it not for his children who made her life hell.
One true love
O'Neal and Fawcett were the great Hollywood loves of the 1980s. Fawcett was married to Lee Majors when she met the Love Story actor. But they were separated in no time.
Their divorce was not finalized until 1982, but the Charlie's Angel actress went on to make a life with O'Neal. They were briefly separated after a cheating episode, but were still very much in love and got back together again.
In the end, love was not enough to save them from addiction, infidelity, failing careers, and cancer. O'Neal stayed with Fawcett until she passed away. Together they had one child, Redmond.
But by 2006, Fawcett had been diagnosed with anal cancer. She died in 2009 with her man by her side and her son in prison.
O'Neal never fully recovered from his heartbreaking loss. And in a strange interview with Piers Morgan on CNN, he blamed his daughter, Tatum, for Fawcett's death.
After watching a clip of where she accused him of exposing them to drugs and eventual addiction as teenagers, the actor called her out for causing a lot of turmoil during his relationship with Farrah.
What bothers me the most is that there was turmoil during my love affair with Farrah, a lot of it caused by my family, my kids. All of them, particularly Tatum. And I just think that if she had never met us, would she still be alive today? Because nobody knows what causes cancer. Do they, really?
Known cause and symptoms of anal cancer
But his claims are not backed by any known science. Anal cancer is scientifically said to be caused by genetic mutations.
