Was Bachelor star Gia Allemand dumped by boyfriend Ryan Anderson just before taking her own life? That’s the implication of a surprising new report.
According to TMZ, the reality star and NBA player, who had been together for two years, had a huge fight. One which ended with Anderson telling her:
“I don’t love you anymore.”
Moreover, Gia Allemand had accused him of being unfaithful during lunch the day she died. It’s not clear if he was, or how he reacted to that.
But on the ride back to her house (they stopped at a Walgreens to get her NyQuil), Gia told Ryan she still loved him, and he said it was not reciprocal.
The timeline is not entirely clear, but at some point later that day, Ryan left the house, and when he returned, he found Gia’s near-lifeness body.
She had been without oxygen for 30-40 minutes, according to reports.
Gia used a vacuum cleaner cord to hang herself from the center section of her spiral staircase. The cord was tied to the handrail on the second floor.
It appears Gia was on the phone with her mom when she did it.
Her mom told New Orleans police that during the call, the phone “had gone silent.” Gia’s mother tried in vain to communicate with her for 10 minutes.
Gia left a suicide note on the table and in it, left all of her property to her mother; two days later, she was taken off life support and died in the hospital.
Ryan called 911 when he found her, and following her death, issued a statement, in which he expressed his grief, heartbreak and love for Gia.
She was just 29 years old.
