Although the 29-year-old was having some relationship problems with her boyfriend, NBA player Ryan Anderson, nobody in Allemand's close circle saw this coming—especially not him.
In his released statement, he called her "the most beautiful person [he] knew." He continued, "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."
Her TV family was also heavily affected. In what may have been her last interview ever, a week before her death, Gia talked with E! News about her admiration for Desiree Hancock. "I think I need advice from her! I really do! She's just a strong girl and she knows what she wants," she said right before the Bachelorette finale. "She's not confused about it. She's not scared to show her feelings, so I need advice from her."
Funeral arrangements have been made and will be open to the public for anyone who wishes to pay their condolences.
