London, May 14 (ANI): Farrah Fawcett’s son Redmond O’neal got his head shaved after his cancer- stricken mum lost her famous blonde hair to chemotherapy.

The ailing actress was diagnosed with anal cancer three years ago and the disease had since spread to her liver.

Her partner Ryan O’Neal revealed that Redmond in a moment of solidarity went bald shortly before he was sent to prison for drug possession in April this year.

“When she lost her hair, he shaved his head. It was the two of them. You didn’t know which one was which,” the Daily Express quoted him as saying.

The 24-year-old prisoner, the only son of Fawcett and the Oscar-nominated actor, had been temporarily released from prison so that he could see his mother under a visit monitored by the sheriff’s office.

O’Neal added: “They were lying together. He just wanted to see her, hold her, he wanted to apologise. He’s so full of shame for his mistakes. She forgives him.” (ANI)
