'Bachelor' Star Gia Allemand's Heartbreaking Tweets About Suicide Uncovered

This Just In 13

Gia AllemandThe news that Gia Allemand had died by suicide continues to shock fans of the Bachelor who recall her as a sweet girl and former model who rose to fame during Jake Pavelka's season of the show. Now a look at the reality star's Twitter account shows had spoken of suicide in the past.

TMZ pored over Allemand's Twitter account and uncovered several mentions of having been bullied, as well as mentions of bullying victims who have committed suicide. At the time, the reality star credited her mother for teaching her to be nice to people rather than to be a bully herself.

Said Gia in October:

As a victim of being bullied most of my life, I'm gonna say that people who can say mean things to other people and put them down are just insecure and depressed with their own life! Glad my momma always told me 'if you don't have something nice to say than don't say it.

Days later she shared several tweets about Amanda Todd, a bullied teenager who committed suicide, including this particularly heartbreaking one:

Words Hurt.  Pain Lasts.   And suicide last forever.

Gia's mom, Donna Micheletti, has chosen not to speak out specifically about her daughter's death, but she did release a statement explaining when she will talk about the tragedy and advising people to steer clear of Twitter comments on her death.

In part, the statement from Gia's family, released to People earlier in the week, read:

The family and close friends of Gia Allemand have not spoken to the media to date, nor have they posted comments or insight on Twitter. There are numerous statements and theories in the media regarding Gia's death and her life that refer to sources close to Gia or friends of hers.

As Micheletti points out, it would be unfair to speculate whether Gia's past mentions of suicide and bullying have any bearing on this tragedy, but they are certainly a reminder that we need to be aware of the tenor of friends' and family members' tweets.

If the words someone is using -- even online -- indicate they may be considering suicide, or if you yourself have wrestled with the idea, please reach out to a suicide hotline. There is ALWAYS someone there who wants to listen and who will take you seriously. You can call the Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK.

As someone who has dealt with bipolar dirsorder and suicidal tendencies for most of their life, I feel for this woman's family. There's not always a clear indicator that someone is suicidal. I have attempted suicide several times that my family is unaware of. Once, I overdosed and was surprised to find myself alive the next day. I didn't leave a note or message to my family, because I was hoping to pass peacefully from this world without their interference. I hope Gia's family and friends realize that there's nothing they could have done to prevent this tradgedy.

Very, very sad.  Unfortunately, those of us who have been raised to be nice, at least not to say hurtful things to people, also need to learn how to exit from harmful people.  One can be nice without allowing such treatment of our "selves".  Make friends with people with similar values.  But also, don't take mean comments to heart.  It is one thing to listen to constructive criticism, we all need that for our own growth, but another to take in hurtful behavior from others.  Sadly, bullies are adults too!  Don't think that this stops after childhood.  Protect yourself.  If you feel some hurtful comments are harming you - talk to someone who is in support of you.  Get perspective on vicious comments, people who malign you and your character, or hurtful pranks.  Good people don't have to be bullies back, just protect yourself from the bullies.

plumbabtoggle - Your post sounds like an anonymous cry for help.  I hope you get that help.  I am sorry you feel suicide is some way out of your troubles.  You need to learn a way where you will have more respect for yourself and your own life.  You also need to realize how traumatized your family and friends will be if you succeed with suicide.  This is not a dramatic way out.  It is a devastating way out.  It will harm your family and friends for a lifetime.  Better to gather your strength, get therapy, and learn to love your life - for your sake, as well as your family and friends' sake!  I wish you the best.  I hope that you can think of yourself and others and get help to make a decent life, where you will respect your life.  Anything you may have done can be forgiven.  You must forgive yourself first and get the help you need.

plumbobtoggle - I am also sorry that you have bi-polar disorder.  A very difficult disorder to deal with.  I hope so much that you do your best to treasure your life - even with your disorder.  Perhaps if you can do that, it will carry you through the depressive periods and the manic periods.  Be sure to take medications as needed.  Please treasure your life.

If only someone seen this coming and got her the help she needed. Surely, to goodness her NBA BF and Mother saw signs, but why didn't they intervene? This is just horrible.

Apparently what I had to say didn't matter, or wasn't good enough.  Thank you for not letting me be heard!
