Gia Allemand of the Bachelor Commits Suicide
Gia Allemand, a contestant on the 14th season of The Bachelor, was admitted to the University Hospital in New Orleans in critical condition for what her publicist called “a serious emergency medical event.” The event seems to have been a suicide attempt, and the attempt was finally successful.
“Due to a critical loss of brain and organ function, life support was withdrawn [on Wednesday]” said the family in a statement. “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 rights.”
“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.”
She had finished in third place during her stint on the Bachelor, but had worked plenty in the business before that, appearing in commercials at a young age for Gerber and Johnson & Johnson, as well as working as a model, actress, and ballet dancer.
She was dating NBA player Ryan Anderson, who according to TMZ, was the one who discovered her at her home Monday night hanging unconscious. Despite rushing her to the hospital, he was too late to revive her.Gia Allemand of the Bachelor Commits Suicide by Daniel June
