Ryan O'Neal -- who has called Farrah Fawcett the love of his life -- claims he isn't bitter about being left out of the late actress' will.

Fawcett, who died of cancer in June at age 62, left the couple's lone child together, Redmond Fawcett O'Neal, $4.5 million. She also left her ex-lover, Gregory Lawrence Lott, $100,000, as well as $500,000 to her nephew, Gregory Walls and $500,000 to her father, James Fawcett.

In a statement, O'Neal tells "Farrah's and my relationship was based on a deep love and respect for one another and for our son Redmond.

"After discussing how her financial affairs would be handled in the event of her passing, we agreed that our son Redmond would be the primary beneficiary of her estate," he goes on. "These were Farrah's wishes and I am perfectly happy with them."
