Jake Pavelka, ‘Bachelor’ Star, Expresses Condolences About Gia Allemand on Twitter

Jake Pavelka, who starred in “The Bachelor” season 14 alongside Gia Allemand–who died Wednesday–went on Twitter to express his condolences.

“And a very dear friend. My heart goes out to her family during this very difficult time. We have lost angel today. I miss you Gia…,” he wrote.

He described Allemand as “one of the sweetest people I have ever known,” adding that “I had to pull over, I can’t stop crying. We have lost an angel.”

According to her family, Allemand attempted suicide on Monday before she was rushed to a New Orleans hospital.

She was pronounced dead on Wednesday after she was taken off life support.

NBA star Ryan Anderson, her boyfriend, released a statement about her death.

“I’m deeply grateful for all the love and support we have received from family, friends and fans,” Anderson said in a statement obtained by People magazine. “Gia was the most beautiful person I knew inside and out and she always smiled and made everyone else around her smile.”

He added: “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.”
