Nov. 17, 2009 — -- Ryan O'Neal may have been the love of Farrah Fawcett's life, but their long-time romance evidently didn't qualify him for rights to her estate.

Fawcett, who died of cancer in June at age 62, did not name O'Neal in her will, a copy of which was obtained by RadarOnline. According to the document posted only, the couple's lone child together, Redmond Fawcett O'Neal, will receive the most cash of any person named in the will: $4.5 million. Fawcett also left $500,000 to her nephew, Gregory Walls; $500,000 to her father, James Fawcett; and $100,000 to ex-lover Gregory Lawrence Lott.

Representatives for Ryan O'Neal declined a request for comment from ABCNews.com.

Vanity Fair reported in September that before her death, Fawcett's will was a source of conflict between O'Neal and his oldest son, Griffin O'Neal. Ryan O'Neal told the magazine that he attempted to shoot his son at Fawcett's 60th birthday celebration.

"I could have hit him, but I missed," O'Neal told Vanity Fair contributing editor Leslie Bennetts. "Farrah was lying in bed, and she could hear it all -- fights swinging, gunshots. Welcome to the O'Neals'!"

Griffin claims O'Neal's proclamations of love for Fawcett in the days before her death -- O'Neal told Barbara Walters he planned to wed the ailing actress -- were all fake.

"All those crocodile tears," Griffin said. "My dad's only goal was to make sure he would be in the will. It was so disgustingly transparent as soon as he found out she was terminal. I consider him a vulture presiding over a carcass. Ryan thought he was going to get everything."

O'Neal said Fawcett was so heavily sedated at the end of her life, sometimes, she couldn't recognize him.

"When I got to the hospital last night, I said, 'Who am I?' She had that thousand-mile stare, and she said, 'Steve,'" O'Neal told Bennetts. "I turned to the nurse and said, 'Who's Steve?' the nurse said, 'He supplies the medications.'"
