Gia Allemand Fought With Boyfriend Ryan Anderson Hours Before Her Death
Gia Allemand fought with her boyfriend Ryan Anderson hours before she hanged herself on Aug. 12, resulting in her death.
Anderson, an NBA player for the New Orleans Pelicans, reportedly told the New Orleans Police Department the details of their fight, saying that Allemand and he argued because Allemand suspected him of cheating.
The two fought, and when Anderson dropped Allemand off at her home, she told him that she still loved him and he responded, “I don’t love you anymore.”
The police report states that Anderson returned home and was asked to check on Allemand almost two hours later. Allemand’s mother had been on the phone with her daughter and she became worried when her daughter stopped responding.
Anderson found his girlfriend unconscious in her apartment, a vacuum cord wrapped around her neck.
“Anderson stated that he frantically unwrapped the cord…[and] began yelling for help,” states the police report.
Anderson’s version of events was confirmed by a witness and the police investigation, which noted no evidence of foul play in Allemand’s apartment. According to the report, the police found a note in the apartment that read, “Mom gets everything.”
Allemand was rushed to the hospital and put on life support, but was taken off life support on Aug. 13.
Anderson released a statement following the death of his girlfriend, saying, “All I have left is to cherish those memories we made together and help perpetuate the many values, faith and love that we shared.”
