The Bachelor’s Gia Allemand thought love eluded her, fought with boyfriend on day of suicide

Gia Allemand Suicide at 29
In the one week since Bachelor star Gia Allemand’s passing details about her final hours are slowly getting revealed — and the picture being painted is nothing short of tragic.

According to TMZ, Gia believed her boyfriend, NBA player Ryan Anderson, was cheating on her. She confronted him during lunch on Monday, August 12. Gia told Ryan she still loved him in spite of the cheating suspicions, however Ryan reportedly said he didn’t love her any more.

When Ryan dropped Gia off at their shared home in New Orleans, the heartbroken Gia wrote a suicide note and used a vacuum cord to strangle herself. He arrived home a while later to find her clinging to life and she was rushed to the hospital. Without oxygen for 30 to 40 minutes, Gia lost critical brain functions. Her family made the difficult decision to take her off life support on Wednesday, August 14.

Gia’s close friend Melinda Farina has since opened up to The National Enquirer, saying Gia was a hopeless romantic.

“All Gia ever wanted was to be loved, to have a husband and children,” Melinda said. “But every time she thought that she was close to her dreams, they eluded her.”

Meanwhile, Gia’s mother, whom she was on the phone with around the time of her suicide, has released statement to warn people against believing all reports.

“As her mother, I am well aware of Gia’s close friends and her best friends,” Donna Micheletti. “And I am personally going on record to refute all statements to the media out there thus far with the exception of official statements we have released through publicist Penelope Jean Hayes, and those jointly with Ryan Anderson’s NBA team representation.”

Regardless of the Gia’s reasons for ending her life, the bottom line is that those close to her will forever be devastated by the loss. She may have felt that love eluded her, but she was still a young woman with many people who cared for her.

    This is just so sad. She wasn’t even married and didn’t have kids. It’s not like she needed a lawyer to get out of the relationship. Just walk away. She’s beautiful and it sounded like she had family and friends who supported her. There was really no light at the end of the tunnel? So sad.

      i agree, so young and beautiful with a long life ahead of her. I believe there was alot of people that loved her, maybe she was just in a dark place. very sad.

    So sad. Suicide is nothing but a permanent fix to a temporary problem. I can only imagine the guilt her boyfriend must be feeling. I truly hope her family & friends can find comfort & peace during this tragedy.

    The more I read about this the more I think this was a call for attention gone wrong. It’s very coincidental that he found her..only a little too late. Maybe she thought he would be home earlier and cut her down and realize the error of his ways. This is strictly speculation and either way this is tragic and senseless. She is a beautiful girl and seemingly well liked. RIP

  • Um

    This made me cry :'( she was a beautiful woman. Depression is no joke may she rest in peace

    The reports says she was strangled, some reports say she hung herself with vacuum cord. Some reports say she was sitting on 2nd stair when ryan came back to her apt. How did she hang herself if she was sitting on the 2nd stair? The hanging doesn’t make sense. I just think there needs to be further investigation on the hanging aspect. I don’t think anyone can strangle themselves with a cord. If she jumped from the 2nd floor, she should have been hanging, not sitting on a 2nd stair??? any thoughts????
