"She's a fighter," O'Neal repeated to X17online.

Thanking photographers for their well wishes as Fawcett continues to battle cancer, O'Neal said there was "pain in our lives" but seemed optimistic.

Meantime, this weekend a judge allowed O'Neal and Fawcett's 24-year-old son Redmond a temporary release from jail so that he could visit his ailing mother.

The visit lasted three hours and was supervised by two law enforcement officials. The younger O'Neal, who has a long history of drug abuse, is currently awaiting trial on charges he tried to smuggle drugs into a Los Angeles area jail.
