This is so unbearably sad!!!
Many people are mourning the loss of Gia Allemand right now, the 29-year-old Bachelor starlet who died Wednesday after an apparent suicide attempt, but perhaps none are as heartbroken as her boyfriend Ryan Anderson.
The NBA player who loved Gia dearly was also the one to discover her at her home on Monday, after she had apparently already made an effort to end her own life.
Words obviously cannot fully express what her he must be experiencing, but he says he's extremely grateful for all the support he's receiving.
Ryan just issued this statement:
"I'm deeply grateful for all the love and support we have received from family, friends and fans. Gia was the most beautiful person I knew inside and out and she always smiled and made everyone else around her smile. She had such an amazing impact on my life and anyone that knew her was blessed. All I have left is to cherish those memories we made together and help perpetuate the many values, faith and love that we shared."
Ugh!! What a truly unimaginable tragedy.
Our hearts continue to go out to Ryan, Gia's friends and family, and all of her mourning fans.
