We happened to see a photo of Ryan O’Neal limping in Beverly Hills and suddenly realized we’d heard nothing about what was going on with his son with Farrah FawcettRedmond O’Neal. (Farrah died in 2009) It’s a sad story. Redmond had a tumultuous life of drugs, rehab, and arrests, starting in his teens. In 2018, he was arrested for a violent crime spree – he robbed a 7-Eleven at knifepoint and stabbed five random people who made eye contact with him on the street. In 2019 he was dubbed “incompetent to stand trial” and transferred to the state mental hospital in Norwalk, where he was diagnosed with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and antisocial personality disorder. He’s 37 now and his future looks uncertain…

  1. Redmond is also being sued by my friend, Ken Fox who was struck by a beer bottle breaking his nose while on the way to do his laundry in Venice. Redmond also using homophobic slurs at Ken as he smashed the beer bottle in his face.

  2. I have dealt with young men who developed schizophrenia in their late teens and my guess is that he is schizophrenic and needs serious medical intervention for his mental illness. But that’s just a guess.

  3. Being diagnosed with schizophrenia is one thing. But I had heard that he said it was his parents fault for the reason he does what he does. If that’s the case…no one can ride on that skirt tail forever…we got to own up to the negative things we do in life…that’s first step in getting better.
