Gia Allemand: Pictures Of ‘Bachelor’ Star’s Life
Gia, 29, passed away on August 14, following an attempt at suicide. After spending two days in the ICU, she died with her mother and boyfriend Ryan Anderson at her side.
Gia came to fame from appearing on the 14th season of The Bachelor, where she made Jake’s final three, eventually losing to Vienna Girardi.
She had a big and vibrant personality, and was liked by all of the other girls when she was on the show. She loved to vacation and she was so affectionate with her boyfriend.
Gia was admitted to University Hospital in New Orleans, and following her death, her family released this statement:
While in her residency in New Orleans on Monday night, Ms. Allemand was found by her boyfriend, NBA Basketball Player Ryan Anderson, following an apparent suicide attempt.
Mr. Anderson contacted 911 and emergency medical crews were immediately dispatched to the scene. Tuesday, Ms. Allemand remained in the hospital unconscious in critical condition and on life support.
Due to a critical loss of brain and organ function, life support was withdrawn today. Ms. Allemand passed away peacefully with her mother, boyfriend, and other life-long friends by her side. As a practicing Christian, Gia did receive the sacrament of last rites.
Loved ones and fans will remember Gia Allemand as a caring woman who loved her family and was well-known for her compassion towards animals and mission to rescue homeless pets.
Funeral arrangements will be forthcoming in another official statement once available. On behalf of the family, we sincerely ask for privacy at this time.
Our thoughts go out to Gia’s friends and family.
