How tragic! An alumna from season 14 of The Bachelor, which featured Jake Pavelka as the romancer, has passed away after an apparent suicide attempt.
Lex McAllister overdosed on pills on Saturday, her family members confirmed to RadarOnline. Lex was first discovered by a cousin following her overdose.
Though she was taken to a local Ohio hospital, her family decided to take her off life support after her organs began to fail.
“It’s true,” Jesse Csincsak, a friend of the blond beauty and a former Bachelorette contestant, exclusively told Radar. “I got the call last night from her cousin.” Jesse added that the 31-year-old was a "wonderful girl." While she hid it well, Jesse revealed that Lex was battling with a major illness.
“She suffered from a bipolar disorder and did a good job of hiding it,” he explained. “Most of the people who were close to her didn’t know because she hid it well. Depression is a nasty thing,” Jesse added. "I just wish I would have known. Think about how on your worst day, a phone a call can make such a difference. That goes a long way. I feel horrible for her mother. It’s so sad.”
