Gia Allemand was laid to rest today after The Bachelor star’s loved ones gathered today to say their goodbyes at the Trinity Grace Church of Chelsea in New York City.
Before the emotional service, a car topped with a floral tribute to Gia arrived, followed by a white hearse bearing her coffin.
Mourners included Gia’s co-star, Jake Pavelka, who tweeted fans for help getting through the day.

After the funeral, Gia’s distraught boyfriend, Ryan Anderson, and mother, Donna Micheletti, comforted each other as they left the church clutching yellow roses.
As OKMagazine.com reported, according to TMZ, the 29-year-old reality star was distraught after she and Ryan got in a fight. “Gia had accused NBA basketball player Ryan Anderson of being unfaithful during lunch the day she died,” claims the website.
“During the ride back to her house…Gia told Ryan she still loved him but then he dropped the bombshell about his feelings.”
After Ryan reportedly told his girlfriend that he was no longer in love with her, Gia made the tragic decision to commit suicide.
“Gia used a vacuum cleaner cord to end her life,” TMZ cites official documents as reading. “It was tied to the center section of her spiral staircase and tied to the handrail on the second floor.”
