Tila Tequila's Lesbian Lover is Dead

January 5, 2010

Casey Johnson, an heiress to the Johnson & Johnson fortune and fiancée of reality television star Tila Tequila, has been found dead. So how does Tila cope with her loss? She takes to Twitter and milks it for all its worth.

The 30-year-old was found dead yesterday morning in her Los Angeles home. Her cause of death is unknown, though Johnson reportedly struggled with alcohol and drug problems. Police say there is no sign of foul play (I can almost hear Tila’s sigh of relief) and are awaiting a toxicology report.

Casey, who was well known on the Hollywood party scene, became engaged to Tila in December.  Tila announced her death on Twitter, writing “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.”

But Tila wasn’t offline for long. In less than a minute she posted another tweet about Casey, saying her “heart is shredded” and asking for some “pricacy” as she “deals with the loss.” Tila then proceeded to post another four tweets, again asking for “privacy.” Me thinks the lady doth protest too much!

Here are her tweets in chronological order:

I just got news that my fiance is not dead but currently in a coma!!! Omg please pray that she will make it! Hang in there my love please!!!

Casey had reportedly been dead in her apartment for several days. Tila says she last saw Casey on New Year’s Eve.
