Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell, the girlfriend of killed “Fast & Furious” actor Paul Walker, was close to marrying him, a source told a website Monday.
“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.
Added the source: “He had been looking at rings. He wanted to marry her.”
Back in 2009, reports said that Walker had proposed to her.
Barton Bruner, her uncle, told the Metro last week: “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 reportedly got together when he was 33 and she was 16, but “their age difference doesn’t scare him. He knows she’s the one,” said a source to Showbiz Spy.
On Sunday, thousands of people attended a memorial for Walker and the driver of the car that crashed, Roger Rodas.
Among those who turned out at the crash site early was Edi Maya, a gardener who worked in Walker’s neighborhood and said he chatted with the actor from time to time.
“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.
Walker, the star of five of the six “Fast & Furious” movies, was the face of the franchise. He was making the seventh film in the series when he died.
Universal Pictures has shut down production while it contemplates how it might go forward without him.
