Gia Allemand Dead of Suicide; The Bachelor Star Was 29

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.

You're right..you didn't know her so for all you know, you are no better than she is. So I hope that you are ever on life support and someone who doesn't know you hears about it, yet they know God and know how to pray that you will have their prayers. But dude, you seriously need to seek God and let Him reaveal Himself to you b/c He is love and you clearly don't know anything about love.
