In the era of Twitter and social networking, celebs turn to blogs and 140-character posts to express their feelings. After the tragic and sudden loss of heiress Casey Johnson, fiancée Tila Tequila (an Internet icon) Tweeted about her grief. Now Casey’s former friend Jasmine Lennard — who had the 30-year-old socialite arrested in November after she was accused of stealing from her — is speaking out against Tila’s negative influence and the desperate attempts to save Casey’s life, Radar Online reports.
“Casey was a fragile, beautiful, witty, wonderful girl who was desperately looking for love,” Jasmine told Radar Online. “Did I love her? Yes. I tried so hard to save her but I couldn’t.”
Jasmine said she feels Casey’s downfall really began to spiral out of control when the heiress met Tila.
“Casey’s family tried desperately to help her,” she said. “There was a car ready 24 hours a day to take her to the best rehab facility in the country. When it came out that Casey had been arrested, she had nobody and was lost. Tila got ahold of her and said, ‘Hey, come out with me and we’ll show them!’ For her to die with this reputation, it’s just not her. Tila is a sick, sick girl.”
“On one occasion she (Tila) called me and a male friend screaming, saying people were breaking into her home. When I arrived, she was naked with a kitchen knife screaming, but no one was there. Everyone who crosses her path suffers consequences,” Jasmine continued.
Jasmine took her feelings to her Twitter page, ranting at Tila’s Twitter account.
In total, her Twitter rant read like this.
“you NEVER even knew her. You have known her for a total of one month you took advantage of someone in her weakest moment. You enabled her death and prevented her getting the help she SO DESPERATELY needed for YOUR OWN selfish purposes. She was a classy woman who would NEVER have had ANYTHING to do with you had she been in her right mind. pass with dignity now not attached to ur smutty name. Stop taking drugs and clean you act up. Disgusting little girl.”
Tila did not respond to Jasmine rants, but has continually posted about her “unbearable pain” and the tragic loss of her fiancée.
She is currently having a Twitter battle with celebrity blog star, Perez Hilton, because she feels he is not respecting Casey.
Earlier today, Tila Tweeted at Perez, “have some decency! You love poking fun at people who have passed away dont you? First Mocking MJ’s Death & now My FIance’s?and why are you stalking my page? Are you just angry because you heard that my new Gossip Blog is going to de-thrown you? LOL?”
Perez retorted, “That’s why YOU’RE new website is gonna be awesome! Woo hoo! Publicize that new website girl! Kill Casey again!And if somebody I cared about died, I wouldn’t be fighting with anyone on Twitter!!!!!!!!! You are your own worst enemy.”
