Gia Allemand's Body Found Hanged By Boyfriend

Aug 15, 2013 06:30 AM


Details are emerging about the circumstances surrounding Bachelor star Gia Allemand's death - reports claim Allemand hanged herself and boyfriend Ryan Anderson found her body in the New Orleans home they shared. Other reports are claiming the reality star had a history of depression and problems with her boyfriend and that the relationship was close to being over.

After Allemand was taken off life support Wednesday following her apparent suicide, her boyfriend, an New Orleans Pelicans NBA player, thanked fans for their support in a statement:

    "I'm deeply grateful for all the love and support we have received from family, friends, and fans. Gia was the most beautiful person I knew inside and out, and she always smiled and made everyone else around her smile. She had such an amazing impact on my life and anyone that knew her was blessed. All I have left is to cherish those memories we made together and help perpetuate the many values, faith, and love that we shared."

Allemand was hospitalized in critical condition Monday after Anderson found her unconscious in the couple's apartment. The family made the decision to take Gia off life support Wednesday "due to a critical loss of brain and organ function," according to a statement.

The family's press release continued:

    "Ms. Allemand passed away peacefully with her mother, boyfriend, and other life-long friends by her side. Loved ones and fans will remember Gia Allemand as a caring woman who loved her family and was well-known for her compassion towards animals and mission to rescue homeless pets ... On behalf of the family, we sincerely ask for privacy at this time."

Bachelor star Gia Allemand, 29, has died of an apparent suicide, reports People magazine.

The family said in a statement on Wednesday:

    "Due to a critical loss of brain and organ function, life support was withdrawn. Ms. Allemand passed away peacefully with her mother, boyfriend, and other lifelong friends by her side. As a practicing Christian, Gia did receive the sacrament of last rites. Loved ones and fans will remember Gia Allemand as a caring woman who loved her family and was well-known for her compassion towards animals and mission to rescue homeless pets."

In a shocking turn of events, Gia Allemand has passed away in a New Orleans hospital on Wednesday. On Tuesday, The Bachelor star checked into the hospital for "“serious medical emergency” and was initially in critical condition.

Allemand was heavily featured on the 14th season of "The Bachelor," also starring Jake Pavelka. After being rejected by Pavelka, Allemand broke hearts on the Bachelor Pad in 2011.

Vienna Girardi, who won Pavelka's season of The Bachelor , tweeted on Wednesday, "Gia you are my angel! You changed so many lives with your beautiful soul and will be missed and loved forever."

At the time of her death she was surrounded by her mother, her pastor and boyfriend Ryan Anderson, an NBA player with the New Orleans Pelicans.

On Tuesday, her rep told Radar that the 29-year-old was “taken to University Hospital, New Orleans last night following a serious emergency medical event,” and that the details of the medical emergency were “currently not known.”

On Monday night ABC released a statement saying, "On behalf of the family, we kindly ask for privacy at this time."

She's already had a practice wedding with this season's Bachelor, Ben Flajnik, but now contestant Courtney Robertson is prepping for the real thing.

The 28-year-old former model was spotted getting fitted for a gorgeous mermaid-style wedding gown with a sweetheart neckline and lace detail at a salon in Beverly Hills on Wednesday afternoon. Despite the cheating rumors, it appears the wedding is still very much on!

Courtney was recently called out for ripping off a few lines from Sex and the City during her "heartfelt" faux wedding vows to Ben on last Monday's episode, but it didn't take long for dedicated SATC fans to catch on!

Rehearsing a line from Sarah Jessica Parker's charter in the series finale, the reality star repeated, "I'm looking for love. Real, passionate, can't-live-without-each-other-love."

Lets hope she's able to write her own vows for the Big Day!
