Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell, the girlfriend of killed actor Paul Walker, was to get married to him, a report said this week.
“He had his daughter, Meadow, living with him and his relationship with Jasmine was solid. He was planning to make an honest woman out of her,” a source, who was not named, told Showbiz Spy several days ago.
Walker “had been looking at rings. He wanted to marry her,” the source added.
“There’s no doubt he was planning on marrying her when she was ready. He knew she was young and had her own things she wanted to achieve, but he always said she was worth the wait,” an insider said, according to Hollywood Life.
Pilchard-Gosnell reportedly was involved in Walker’s charity, Reach Out Worldwide.
“She encouraged him down that path, which gave him immense satisfaction,” another source said.
Last week, Pilchard-Gosnell’s uncle, told the Metro: “Paul was a really good guy and Jasmine is broken up by this. I went to Thanksgiving with him, played golf with him. They had their ups and downs but they were together and looking to spend a bright future together.”
He added: “This is horrible news and unexpected. Her mother is with her and she is comforting her.”
Walker and Pilchard-Gosnell got together when he was 33 years old and she was 16 years old, but “their age difference doesn’t scare him. He knows she’s the one,” said the source to Showbiz Spy.
Last Sunday, several thousand of people attended a memorial for Walker and the driver of the car that crashed, Roger Rodas.
A funeral is slated for Saturday, which will only include close friends and family.
“I work next to his house every week, twice a week. Seeing those candles there, it’s heartbreaking,” he told KABC-TV.
Actor Rick Yune, who co-starred with Walker in “The Fast and the Furious,” also stopped by.
“We mourn his loss but … we can at least remember how great a guy he was and celebrate his life,” Yune told reporters.
Walker was in Santa Clarita for a fundraiser his charity, Reach Out Worldwide, organized for victims of the recent Philippines typhoon. The event took place at Rodas’ shop, and the two stepped away for what was supposed to be a short drive in Rodas’ car.
The limited-edition Porsche was previously owned by IndyCar driver Graham Rahal, who has said it could be difficult to drive.
