by at . Comments

Gia Allemand, the beautiful and well-liked star of The Bachelor who shockingly took her own life last week, was laid to rest in her native New York Thursday.

Her boyfriend, the NBA star Ryan Anderson, attended the funeral and was spotted being embraced by Gia's family. Many of her co-stars were also present.

The sports star has been struggling with Gia's death, which reportedly occurred after they had been fighting a lot and Ryan tried to break up with her.

It has also been reported that she suffered from insecurities and depression.

Whatever the case, he was seen clutching Gia's mother tight at the funeral, which brought together some of Allemand's closest friends and colleagues.

Gia Allemand passed away on August 14, when she was taken off life support two days after she had attempted suicide in her New Orleans home.

Anderson found her hanging from the stairs, allegedly from a vacuum cord, and dialed 911. It is believed she had been without oxygen for 30-40 minutes.

She was laid to rest at the Trinity Grace Church in Chelsea, New York.

Gia was best known for appearing on The Bachelor, where she made it to the final four in the season starring Jake Pavelka, and on Bachelor Pad.

She and Ryan had been together for over two years.
