FARRAH FAWCETT went to her grave haunted by her troubled son’s desperate battle with drugs – a war he’s still fighting today.
In a shocking disclosure on the six-year anniversary of her death, The National ENQUIRER has learned Farrah – who died at age 62 – was so traumatized by Redmond O’Neal’s struggles she once entertained the chilling idea of murdering his dealer!
“She thought it was the only way of saving him,” a close family friend told The ENQUIRER. “While there’s no indication Farrah ever acted on her emotional belief, she must be spinning in her grave because her boy still can’t get the monkey off his back.
“Farrah went through hell because of Redmond’s drug use. When it seemed obvious he couldn’t quit on his own, she wanted to take out the guy supplying him. But cancer beat her to the punch.”
In an exclusive interview with The ENQUIRER three years before her death, the ’70s poster girl said she’d seen Redmond through 11 stints in rehab for heroin, cocaine and crystal methamphetamine addictions.
“I’ve been to hell and back,” a sobbing Farrah revealed. “In fact, I’m not even back – it’s still going on.”
As The ENQUIRER recently reported, Redmond, 30, has been back using.
Sources said the family didn’t learn of his tragic relapse until after a warrant was issued for his parole violations in April.
Police in Culver City, Calif., took Redmond into custody on May 27.
Added the insider: “Farrah’s death made an impression on Redmond. He partly credited the fact he had ended up in jail during his mother’s last days when he proclaimed himself drug-free in 2013.
“Maybe now as he reflects on her passing, he’ll find the strength to finally beat his demons.”
