"Bachelor" star and model Gia Allemand died Wednesday, according to E! News and The Huffington Post.
According to a statement by her rep, she was taken to University Hospital on Monday night and was said to be in critical condition following an "emergency medical event."
It was later revealed that the 29-year-old was placed on life support and that her mother and boyfriend, NBA New Orleans Pelicans player Ryan Anderson, were by her side.
The PR company that represented Allemand, Penelope Jean Media, later revealed in a statement that Allemand attempted suicide and was discovered by her boyfriend's side. He called 911 and she was immediately taken to the hospital. Allemand remained unconscious and in critical condition on life support, but "due to a critical loss of brain and organ function, life support was withdrawn today," said Penelope Jean Media in the statement.
Her mother and boyfriend were at her side at the time of her death.
