Johnson "Johnson was arrested in November for grand theft — the alleged victim was a former girlfriend.

Johnson was reportedly engaged to Tila Tequila. We spoke with Tila a few minutes ago. She says they were fighting last week and that Casey stayed at Tila's house on the 28th.

    To, not only TWEET an obituary, but then to redistribute this… random brain dropping. This is a new low for society. It’s time to stop playing with the f*&king cell phone and pay attention to the world.

    Jesus Christ. THAT was 30?! I should show some respect – after all, she was incredibly rich – and that’s all that matters, right? – it’s why it was reported in newspapers – and she was GREAT in “Eraserhead”.

    lol @ “TILA” for defending her offline status by posting on a blog site. Good one. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Although any death is sad, I don’t know who this person is and don’t really care.

    Tila, on the other hand, can drop off the face of the Earth for all I care….and that ain’t much at all!

    She wants privacy, but tweets?

  5. Christopher says

    Tila twatting hourly about her grief in a desperate attempt to claim “wife” status is really a new low even for her, but let’s have some respect. It must hurt to fall off of a gutter.

    “natural causes”????

    LOL, riiiiight, of course. It’s usual for 30 year old rich folks to die of “natural causes.” Perhaps she naturally choked to death on a handful of pills or drugs.

    Hey…it’s now the 2nd decade of the 21st century. The mass media is no longer monolithic. There are various digital means to disseminate information & who’s to say what is proper? Sure, the source must be considered, but it’s all out there. Get used to it.

  8. Robert says

    Couldn’t have said it better, Jonny. My condolences to Tila and Ms. Johnson’s family for the terrible loss. It must be really hard to lose someone you love. Something you fucking bitches should respect.

    And btw, if Tila wants to be left alone during this, a tweet is a good way to announce information to a wide majority of people rather than having to answer the phone or text a million times to say she doesn’t want to talk about it.

    That Tilathing is a fame whore. She will sink her claws into another victim as soon she can.
