According to Us Weekly, Lee and Farrah had been in contact through friends once Lee found out Farrah was diaganosed with cancer in 2006.

"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 told Us. "He would send funny messages to her through friends, and she would do the same, and it was very sweet."Answer: Why does an ex not make a good friend?
Though the couple had been married for nine years, Lee and Farrah had gone 23 years without talking until Lee decided to call Farrah this past February.
"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,” a source reported to Us.
Since their split, both Farrah and Lee had moved on to start new marriages. Lee married actress Faith Noelle in 2002, while Fawcett had planned on marrying Ryan O'Neal before her death.Read: Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O'Neal: Epic Love Story
