Farrah Fawcett's Estate Under Fire
Posted on Mon Mar 29, 2010 02:40 PM PDT

fawcett200.jpgLOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA (X17online) New controversy surrounding Farrah Fawcett's estate is brewing ... this time involving accusations that the late actress' money is being mishandled.

Producer Craig Nevius has filed a lawsuit claiming that the estate's trustee is witholding money from some of the beneficiaries. This claim is in direct response to a lawsuit filed this past January by trustee Richard B. Francis against Nevius.

Craig Nevius tells X17online exclusively:

    "I regret having to do any of this. But I am, at all times, honoring Farrah's expressed wishes and doing what she would expect me to do -- or would do herself if she could.

    That's why, in the name of Farrah Fawcett, I am publicly calling on the Attorney General to investigate the 'Farrah Fawcett Foundation' and interview a handful of Farrah’s trusted friends and associates with respect to Farrah’s knowledge and intent regarding this so-called 'charity.'

    And I would suggest that the Attorney General start with interviewing Farrah's father and Kate Jackson. I will be happy to give him a longer list in private."

The new filing also mentions actor Ryan O'Neal and Farrah's friend Alana Stewart, both of whom worked on NBC's documentary, Farrah's Story.

Last year, Nevius sued O’Neal, Stewart and Francis claiming that the documentary was made against Farrah's wishes and that he was cut out of the making of the program.

Howard Weitzman, who represents Farrah's estate and O’Neal, Stewart and Francis released this statement, “I’m confident the truth will all come out during the course of the litigation. I’ve read Mr. Nevius’ response to our complaint which I think contains spurious and outrageous allegations.”

Farrah Fawcett died on June 25 from anal cancer at the age of 62.
