Casey Johnson, heiress to the Johnson & Johnson fortune, was found dead in LA this morning, aged only 30. The celebrity curse of 2009 has not ended in 2010, as we all hoped it would. The heiress had been in the headlines claiming to be engaged to Tila Tequila. She and Tequila made the announcement on UStream.
Tequila says she and her alleged fiance were fighting last week and the two had not been in contact since December 28. TMZ broke the story and spoke to Tequila about the last time they interacted. She says Johnson stayed at her house on the 28th. She tried contacting her love on the 29th because she had left her dogs behind, but her phone was shut off and it stayed shut off.
Johnson’s last tweet was on 9:13 AM Dec 29th, 2009, and the bottom of the two images is from her Twitter profile. Tequila just tweeted a message:
- Tila Tequila wrote a message on her Twitter a moment ago: Everyone please pray 4 my Wifey Casey Johnson. She has passed away. Thank u for all ur love and support but I will be offline to be w family.
