Former Bachelor star Gia Allemand, 29, has died after an attempted suicide which left her with critical loss of brain and organ function.
Gia was found by her NBA star boyfriend Ryan Anderson unconscious and hanging in her home on Monday. The New Orleans Pelicans forward contacted 911.
She was transported to the hospital where she was placed on life support and listed in critical condition.
On Tuesday, her condition remained critical with no improvement. On Wednesday her family made the decision to take her off life support.
A spokesperson for the family said that she “passed away peacefully with her mother, boyfriend, and other lifelong friends by her side. As a practicing Christian, Gia did receive the sacrament of last rites.”
