O’Neal thankful to Morgan for improving Tatum relations

The stars became estranged after the actor began dating Farrah Fawcett in the late 1970s, but they reunited following her death in 2009.

Relations became strained again when they filmed their U.S. reality TV show, Ryan & Tatum: The O’Neals, and spoke about their issues as they promoted it – but the turning point came during separate appearances on Piers Morgan Tonight.

“He was playing frisby with his dog on the beach and he told me because of that double interview they’ve now got back talking and things are moving in the right direction. I was very pleased to hear that.”

However, O’Neal is now having problems with his other children – son Redmond has been charged with two felonies following his arrest for drug possession on Tuesday (02Aug11), while his elder son Griffin was involved in a car crash on the same day.
