by at .  Updated at . Comments

The Bachelor star Gia Allemand has died, E! News confirms.

The popular reality star and model was just 29 years old.

Gia Allemand was taken to University Hospital in New Orleans on Monday night and was listed in critical condition following a serious medical emergency.

The details that brought her there are not known, but despite an outpouring of prayers and support from Bachelor Nation, she appears to have passed away.

The brunette was placed on life support and had her mother and longtime boyfriend, NBA player Ryan Anderson of the New Orleans Pelicans, by her side.

A couple of hours after the family made its initial announcement, Melinda Farina (a close friend of Gia Allemand) tweeted about the shocking ordeal.

"@GiaAllemand on life support w little pulse and barely breathing ... cause unknown ... next 48 hours critical please pray for Gia everyone," she said.

"I'm so sad about my best friend right now... how could this have happened to such an incredible person... she needs to come out of it!" Farina added.

Tragically, she did not. Gia Allemand, who starred on Season 14 of The Bachelor and then Bachelor Pad, will be missed by family, friends and fans.

R.I.P.

UPDATE: Gia's family has confirmed that the 29-year old took her own life.

Understanding why people choose suicide is very hard. It takes a compassionate and loving view. If you or someone you know is struggling, try to read the book, When The Devil Visits dot com. This lady lost four family members to suicide and she a unique perspective.

I think that the main reason why many people committed suicide is because of muteness or having no one to talk about their negative emotions/thoughts/feelings. Although Gia did have family and friends and even a boyfriend, she probably kept dark secrets from them.
