Ryan Anderson misses his late girlfriend Gia Allemand. Every minute of every day. He made this clearer than ever in a Twitter tribute he posted.
The NBA player posted a photo of himself and The Bachelor star, writing:
"Every second of everyday, I miss you Petrie. I feel lost without you but find strength knowing that you are in Heaven. Rest in peace my love."
Anderson had found Allemand unconscious in mid-August in her New Orleans home after she apparently hanged herself with a vacuum cord.
She was taken to a nearby hospital and was later pronounced dead.
Ryan Anderson told investigators that he and Allemand had argued through lunch on August 12 "over her suspicions that he had been unfaithful to her."
This resulted in the New Orleans Pelicans player, who had already been fighting a lot with Allemand, telling Gia, "I don't love you anymore."
The athlete told police that he arrived at Allemand's house 20 minutes after receiving a worried message from her mother and found her unconscious.
A vacuum cleaner cord was "wrapped around her neck many times."
After Allemand's passing, Anderson said in a statement that Gia "was the most beautiful person" he knew and had "an amazing impact on my life."
"Anyone who knew her was blessed. All I have left is to cherish the memories we made and help perpetuate the values, faith and love that we shared."
