    Her boyfriend, NBA player Ryan Anderson, discovered her at her home on Monday night and called 911, according to a statement released by Allemand's rep on behalf of her family, who previously confirmed that she was found after an apparent suicide attempt.

    Sadly, Allemand's attempt proved successful. Doctors withdrew life support after determining that she had suffered a critical loss of brain and organ function.

    Sources told E! News that Allemand and Anderson had been having problems with their relationship, but they were still together at the time of her death.

    If you or someone you know needs help, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255)
