According to Griffin, “Ryan was using Farrah for her money and fame.” Farrah, who Griffin says was worth about $20 million, may not have left anything to Ryan in her will. “Redmond will get most of that if he can keep it together,” Griffin adds. According to Griffin, Farrah stayed with Ryan for so long “for Redmond. Just to let him know they were a family unit.” But Griffin said Ryan was never a good father to Redmond or his other three children — Griffin, Tatum, 45, and Patrick, 41. In addition to never celebrating the kids’ birthdays and never getting them Christmas presents, “He set no boundaries,” the former business associate says. “He never wanted to be a father. It was too much responsibility for him. He liked the kids around as long as it didn’t interfere with him. If he and Farrah were watching a movie, he’d try to shoo Red from the room.” “He was violent all my life to all of the kids,” Griffin claims. “He punched my teeth out when I was 16. He shot a gun at me once and missed. He’s an uncaring man.” Ryan described his actions as self-defense.
