A controversial private detective has been accused of illegally wiretapping Farrah Fawcett after forming a close relationship with the actress. It's claimed the screen star - who's expected to unveil explosive details of her life on upcoming reality TV show Chasing Farrah - was one of Anthony Pellicano's victims before he was sentenced to jail on explosives charges. A spokeswoman for the actress confirms Fawcett was once wiretapped but refuses to reveal why the listening device was planted on her - or who was responsible. However, policeman-turned-investigative reporter John Connelly - who's writing a book on Pellicano - is convinced the private eye took advantage of his relationship with Fawcett and tapped her. He tells website The Scoop, "Anthony Pellicano had first worked on a case investigating Farrah Fawcett and then became very friendly with her. The FBI is currently investigating Pellicano, and I would be shocked if he isn't indicted for charges of illegal wiretapping and now we know that Farrah was one of his victims."
