General Hospital Star Johnny Wactor's Family FURIOUS With His Ex For Speaking Out About Murder

Soap Star Johnny Wactor's Family FURIOUS With His Ex For Speaking Out About Murder

Johnny Wactor’s family has a sneaking suspicion his ex-fiancée may have ulterior motives while speaking out about the actor’s shocking death.

Known for his role on General Hospital, Johnny was tragically killed in Los Angeles in the early morning hours on Saturday. It’s been reported he and a female co-worker were heading to his car in a parking lot at around 3:00 a.m. local time when they noticed a group of masked men tinkering with his vehicle. The 37-year-old got a closer look and apparently moved to protect his companion — causing the suspects to shoot him down. He was transported to a local hospital but sadly did not pull through.

His mother Scarlett and brothers Lance and Grant spoke out about the tragedy in an interview with Good Morning America on Tuesday, with the matriarch detailing what went down:

“They took a wonderful person … He saw his car kind of jacked up to one side and he said, ‘Hey, man, you’re towing my car.’ Johnny immediately stepped in front of the co-worker and either put his hands up, or back up, or both, and the person shot him right then, point blank.”

His brothers also remembered him fondly, but his family weren’t the only ones…

Johnny’s ex-fiancée Tessa Farrell spoke out about the incident in a tear-filled TikTok on Monday, calling on the community to do better. She said she and the late actor met in 2013 and had a “fiery” relationship, but ultimately split and remained friends. You can watch her lengthy video (below):

However, his mom Scarlett disagrees.

On Wednesday, she told TMZ her son and Tessa had not spoken in two to three years! And that the rest of the family hasn’t stayed in touch with her either. Momma is not happy with the actress speaking out about Johnny’s murder. In fact, she believes Tessa is merely seeking her own time in the spotlight by inserting herself into the tragic — and widely covered — narrative.

Yikes!

This is all happening while the family is in the process of flying Johnny’s body to South Carolina for a funeral. But Scarlett says they will also hold a memorial in LA at some point as well.

As of now, no arrests have been made in the tragic case, but investigations are underway.

Thoughts, Perezcious readers? Do YOU think Tessa is chasing clout? Let us know down in the comments.
