LOS ANGELES (WPIX) - If one thing's for sure, Ryan O'Neal won't be up for a "Father of the Year" award anytime soon. Just days after it was revealed that the one-time A-lister hit on his own daughter Tatum O'Neal at Farrah Fawcett's funeral, his eldest son is making claims that his headline-making dad gave him cocaine when he was 11.
"I was 11-years-old when he gave me cocaine and said, 'We're going to see a long movie called 'Barry Lindon.' It's a very long movie. Maybe this well help you.' I was 11," Griffin said. "I look down at my little 2-year-old and I go, you know what, I'm so sorry, but I could never, ever, ever do that to my child."
Griffin, 45, went on to blame his father's poor parenting on the well-publicized drug addictions of his sister Tatum, and half-brother Redmond.
Griffin also talked about how he was banned from attending Fawcett's funeral last month. He claims Ryan did not want him present at the service.
"Ryan didn't want me in. I call him Ryan now. I've had to let go of him as being my dad, not that he was ever really a dad," Griffin recounted. "But he said, no, no Griffin. Tatum, Patrick, even my daughter was allowed in.
A lawyer for Ryan O'Neal denies Griffin's claims.
Meanwhile, the troubled ex-hunk seems to be sinking lower in public opinion every time he opens his mouth. In the September issue of Vanity Fair, O'Neal, 68, admitted that he came on to daughter Tatum at Fawcett's funeral.
"I had had just put the casket in the hearse and I was watching it drive away," he told VF, "when a beautiful blonde woman comes up and embraces me. "I was just trying to be funny with a strange Swedish woman ... and it's my daughter. It's so sick."
So sick indeed.
