Did Ryan O'Neal Keep Kate Jackson Away From Farrah?

Actress Kate Jackson is making an explosive claim, saying Ryan O'Neal kept her away from her dear friend Farrah Fawcett, during Farrah's final days.

The Charlie's Angels remained good pals since their days on the 1970's TV show. They delighted the nation when they reunited during the 2006 Emmys.

But Jackson says Farrah spent her dying days controlled by O'Neal and Farrah's friend Alana Stewart. She was quoted as telling radaronline.com, "I was shut out. I was prevented from saying goodbye to one of my best friends."

Today, O'Neal is hitting back. In a statement, he says, "Firstly, Farrah spent the last week of her life in the hospital. Secondly, why would Kate be denied access to Farrah and then be invited to her (funeral) services?"
