  • Last week, Abdul received flowers with a note signed: "Love, J.T." and the message, "Hope you're doing great. Here's my new cell number." The singer assumed they were from ex-boyfriend J.T. Torregiani,, but he denied knowledge of the gift.

"The flower thing was really scary – Paula [Abdul] really couldn't handle that. She was terrified," a source said of Abdul's reaction when she realized the bouquet came from Goodspeed.

  • Abdul had received over 100 letters, numerous phone calls and many visits from Goodspeed over the last three years.
  • Goodspeed changed her first name from Sandra to Paula.

Said Ed Faris, a producer/songwriter in Los Angeles, who worked with Goodspeed on her aspiring singing career around 2005:

"I was shocked to hear about her death, I never thought it would come to that," says Faris. "It's just a sad situation all around."
