Actress/model Gia Allemand died on Tuesday after committing suicide by hanging herself at her home, TMZ reports.
TMZ says Allemand, who was known for appearing on season 14 of reality TV show “The Bachelor” and in Maxim magazine, was found by boyfriend Ryan Anderson hanging inside her New Orleans home on Monday night. Allemand was taken to the hospital and was on life support until it was withdrawn on Tuesday. TMZ says Allemand had lost critical brain and organ function, which likely led her family to pull the plug.
Anderson, who was traded to the New Orleans Pelicans last year, reportedly had been dating Allemand since 2011. TMZ says the two were having a “rocky relationship” that upset Allemand.
This is a terribly sad story. Our thoughts are with Allemand’s friends and family.
