Gia Allemand’s Mother: Don’t Listen To Speculation by Others On My Daughter’s Death
The mother of late Bachelor
star Gia Allemand is calling out people who are looking to capitalize on the attention surrounding the suicide of her daughter earlier this week — especially those theorizing on why the 29-year-old beauty would take her own life
In a statement released to RumorFix,
her mother, Donna Micheletti, noted “the family and close friends of Gia Allemand have not spoken to the media to date, nor have they posted comments or insight on Twitter. There are numerous statements and theories in the media regarding Gia’s death and her life that refer to sources close to Gia or friends of hers.”
“As her mother, I am well aware of Gia’s close friends and her best friends and I am personally going on record to refute all statements to the media out there thus far with the exception of official statements we have released through publicist Penelope Jean Hayes, and those jointly with Ryan Anderson’s
NBA team representation”
She continued “Gia liked everyone and always found the good in people, however there were acquaintances that she had disassociated with whom are now speaking as her close friends. I don’t like to give further publicity by mentioning names here, however there is a particular individual, Loredana Ferriolo, identifying herself as Gia’s best friend and the fact is that Gia expressed directly to me that she did not trust this individual and her motives for her own public exposure.”
Ferriolo, a model and former alleged Tiger Woods mistress, has gone on the record in the New York Daily News and other outlets claiming to have talked to Gia the night before her suicide attempt and that she had been crying. Ferriolo also denied claims that Gia was depressed or used drugs.
Gia’s mom notes that she will be giving an interview about Gia’s life and death following her daughter’s funeral.
