Hours after it was revealed that Bachelor contestant Gia Allemand, 29, died of a suicide attempt, her boyfriend, NBA player Ryan Anderson, has spoken out. Anderson, who found his girlfriend unconscious at her home on Monday, said that Allemand was "the most beautiful person I knew inside and out."

He continued, "She always smiled and made everyone else around her smile. She had such an amazing impact on my life and anyone that knew her was blessed. All I have left is to cherish those memories we made together and help perpetuate the many values, faith and love that we shared."

Allemand was hospitalized on Monday and remained in critical condition until Wednesday, when her family chose to remove her from life support. Her death was confirmed by her agent.

The reality star gained fame from appearances on Season 14 of The Bachelor as well as Bachelor Pad. In a statement released by her agent on Wednesday, she was said to be a "a caring woman who loved her family and was well-known for her compassion towards animals."
