Ryan O’Neal’s Cause of Death Released: Report

Published on

The cause of death of 82-year-old actor Ryan O’Neal, who passed away on December 8, has been disclosed, according to a new report.

The website The Blast published a duplicate of the actor’s death certificate that had been redacted.

According to the death certificate, O’Neal passed away from congestive heart failure subsequent to a prolonged period of cardiomyopathy.

There were no additional factors cited as contributing to his demise. The actor was interred at Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park, according to the death certificate.

Health problems had not been an absence from O’Neal’s existence.

The New York Post reports that in addition to being afflicted with leukemia in 2001, he was also diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2012. Additionally, O’Neal struggled with substance addiction and intoxication over the years.

The cardiovascular system is susceptible to a diverse range of conditions that have detrimental effects on its muscular tissues; this is what the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention define as cardiomyopathy.

“When cardiomyopathy occurs, the normal muscle in the heart can thicken, stiffen, thin out, or fill with substances the body produces that do not belong in the heart muscle. As a result, the heart muscle’s ability to pump blood is reduced, which can lead to irregular heartbeats, the backup of blood into the lungs or rest of the body, and heart failure,” the CDC said.

“Cardiomyopathy can be acquired—developed because of another disease, condition, or factor—or inherited. The cause isn’t always known,” the CDC said.

Oscar-nominated was O’Neal’s performance opposite actress Ali MacGraw (Jenny) as Harvard preppie Oliver in the 1970 film “Love Story.”

O’Neal subsequently achieved several successes, including “Paper Moon” (1973), in which he co-starred with his then-9-year-old daughter Tatum O’Neal (for which she won an Academy Award), “What’s Up, Doc?” (1972), “A Bridge Too Far” (1977), a war film, “The Main Event” (1979), where he portrayed a prize fighter alongside Barbara Streisand.
