(Newser) – Redmond O’Neal was given permission to leave his California detention center for mother Farrah Fawcett’s funeral today. “That’s an absolute yes” for his attendance, his attorney tells People. The ceremony will be held in a downtown Los Angeles cathedral at 4pm, and will be closed to the public and the media, CBS adds.
