Paul Walker’s Girlfriend Jasmine Pilchard In ‘Anguish’
Jim heard a loud bang about five minutes after Paul, 40, got into a Porsche GT with his friend, Roger Rodas. Jim’s son was one of the first to arrive on the scene and immediately called his father to give him the horrific news.
“I got a phone call from him and he said it didn’t look good, that from the looks Paul and Roger didn’t make it. Paul’s girlfriend was standing next to me when I got the phone call,” Jim told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “When I told her what happened she fell, she collapsed.”
Jasmine then had to do one of the hardest tasks — tell Paul’s 15-year-old daughter, Meadow Walker, who was also at the event.
“I believe she is the one who told Meadow about what happened, and when she found out she was hysterical and crying,” Jim, 52, told us. “It was just so sad. I tried to do everything I could to help them. Paul’s girlfriend then took Meadow and drove her home. I don’t know if they drove to crash site. I just know they were in so much anguish.”
Paul Walker Was ‘An Amazing Dad’ To Meadow
We can’t imagine what Meadow must be going through. She just moved out of her mother, Rebecca McBrain‘s home to live with Paul, and their relationship was terrific.
“The worst part is that he was finally getting his time with Meadow. He was happier than you can imagine to have her living with him full-time,” a family friend told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “She was the love of his life, he was an amazing dad and he was so happy that she chose to live with him because he never felt like he got enough time with her.”
Meadow was a “total Daddy’s girl” who “adored him,” our source continued. “They were like two peas in a pod, they loved hanging out and playing video games or basketball or going to Disneyland.”
Paul opened up to Entertainment Weekly in March 2013, referring to Meadow as “the best partner” he’s ever had. “There’s a part of me who feels like I’m making up for lost time,” he added.
Our thoughts are with Meadow, Jasmine and the rest of the Paul’s family and friends at this time.
