Farrah Fawcett reunited with ex-husband Lee Majors before she died

Tbd-fawcettmajors070109 Farrah Fawcett was able to get some closure with ex-husband Lee Majors before she died, speaking to him for the first time in 23 years when the Six Million Dollar Man star called her after her cancer diagnosis, Us reports. He apparently got updates through friends for 2 1/2 years.

"He didn't feel like he could reach out to her himself -- it had just been too long, but he still cared about her deeply," a source tells the mag. "He would send funny messages to her through friends, and she would do the same, and it was very sweet."

The couple got married in 1973 and stayed that way for nine years, although they separated in 1979. But after Farrah's cancer returned, he bit the bullet.

"This past February, her birthday, he decided to call her for the first time. They spoke for the first time in 23 years," the source said. "They had a 40-minute phone conversation about her life, and the cancer and it was such a lovely moment for the two of them. I guess it was a very good conversation. They joked, and they got a little bit emotional."

Majors is remarried, but Fawcett never revisited the altar, despite agreeing to marry longtime partner Ryan O'Neal days before she died.

"I think it was good given the current situation (for) closure, otherwise they never would've spoken again," the source said of Majors. "I think he always wanted to talk to her again, but he was just afraid to speak to her before."
