Bachelor season 14 finalist and Bachelor Pad contestant Gia Allemand has died. She was 29.
Gia was hospitalized monday in New Orleans, and her publicist released a statement yesterday that said she suffered “a serious emergency medical event” and was “in critical condition”; it said her mother and “her long-term boyfriend, NBA basketball player Ryan Anderson of the New Orleans Pelicans,” were with her.
She last tweeted on Sunday, quoting Proverbs 21:3: “Doing what is right and fair pleases The Lord more than an offering.” She also posted a photo to Instagram with this quotation: “legend says, when you can’t sleep at night, it’s because you’re awake in someone else’s dream.”
Update: A statement on behalf of the family says Gia:
“was found by her boyfriend, NBA Basketball Player Ryan Anderson, following an apparent suicide attempt. Due to a critical loss of brain and organ function, life support was withdrawn today.”
Second update: Gia hanged herself Monday and was found unconscious by Ryan Anderson, TMZ reported.
