Johnson & Johnson Heiress Dies

1/4/2010 9:51 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Casey Johnson, an heiress to the Johnson & Johnson fortune, has died .. TMZ has learned.

She died in L.A. We're told the body was discovered this morning.

She was 30 years old. Her father is Woody Johnson -- owner of the New York Jets.

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. Tila tried contacting Casey on the 29th because Casey had left her dogs behind. Tila says Casey's phone has been shut off since the 29th and she was not able to make contact.

Johnson -- who tweeted frequently -- last tweeted on December 29 at 1:13 AM.

The cause of death is undetermined.

UPDATE: A law enforcement source tells TMZ it appears Johnson had been dead for several days before her body was discovered.

UPDATE: The LAPD has opened a death investigation.

Seriously?!? Tilapig has been trying to get the spotlight for HOW LONG??? (Please refer to "I'm not pregnant...yet") Whatever. Whatever it takes...I wonder if she Tilapig was "officially" in her will. THAT is what I'd be asking.

#65 Kathy- you are right 'cept society has already lost its soul, celebrity is the only thing sacred nowadays. Just sit back, relax, and enjoy the entertainment that beginning of the apocalypse brings us.

I'm thinking she may be in extreme denial on top of her current mental health issues. I mean really, she has to have something going on up there. Her actions have never been those of a very stable character to begin with.

***if u read tila aka crazy myspace she talks about how crazy she is with multiple personalities. Its odd she doesnt know the status of her fiance?? sounds wierd! Maybe she will claim its one of her personalities that made her write that...everyone else is says johnson dead so tila obviously has no idea whats up. Ignore that crazy bitch so she goes away...maybe this will put her over and she will be next...lets hope.

I feel sorry for the child involved in this circus. Please Tila, get a life. If you couldn't contact your fiance for a week and seemingly didn't give a rats ass then you don't deserve any sympathy now.
