Per the outlet, McEnroe, 60, explained that O’neal in the first instance “had a lot of charm” and claimed that the marijuana is often helped to calm O ‘ neal down.

“You can relax him a bit after a day of not eating and going in the sauna for hours at a time with his ex, Farrah Fawcett. A little crazy or a lot crazy, it was hard,” McEnroe said. “But he does not treat his children well. So that impacted me and my children.”

McEnroe qualified his remarks tells Cohen that he has a poster of Fawcett as a child before he continued.
