Gia Allemand

Took Notes In Church

One Day Before Suicide

8/16/2013 3:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0814_gia_allemand_article_gettyGia Allemand turned to the church just one day before her suicide ... paying close attention to the service and even taking notes during the pastor's sermon, TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the former "Bachelor" star tell TMZ ... Gia was a practicing Christian and attended a Sunday service at her local New Orleans church on August 11.

One source close to Gia tells us the reality had been struggling recently ... "She was a Christian, but couldn't be fulfilled. She thought the world expected more from her. She put so much pressure on herself and couldn't see the love around her."

We're told Gia had been venting about her relationship with NBA player Ryan Anderson in the weeks before her death, but Gia's concerns were pretty ordinary for a couple that had been dating for more than 2 years.

Hours before she attempted to take her own life, we're told Gia went about her daily routine as if nothing was wrong ... even teaching a 1:30 pm class at an exercise studio on August 12.

Later that night, Gia's boyfriend discovered the reality star in her home after she had hanged herself. She passed away two days later.

'Bachelorette' Star Kasey Kahl

My Accusers Just Want

15 Mins of Fame

1/18/2012 6:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kasey Kahl
Former "Bachelorette" star Kasey Kahl is adamant ... the couple he brawled with inside a Fresno nightclub are just a couple of "Jersey Shore" wannabes bent on attaining their 15 minutes of fame.

Kahl's rep has released a NEW statement in the wake of an explosive police report, in which an allegedly intoxicated Kahl is accused of beating up a 25-year-old named Richard Chaney ... and smashing the dude's GF in the face at a Fresno nightclub this weekend.

Team Kahl says ... "As Kasey is in the public eye, it is not unlikely that we would not be surprised if these persons bent on attaining their 15 minutes of fame, while intoxicated and perhaps fueled by jealousy, will antagonize and attack stars such as Kasey in a 'Jersey Shore' type brawl given the opportunity."

He adds, "These persons wanted their 15 minutes, which they received, and now those 15 minutes are over."

"We are confident that Kasey Kahl will be fully exonerated upon completion of a full investigation."

The rep also echos what Kasey told police on the night of the incident ... that any violence on Kasey's part was PURELY in self-defense.

TMZ broke the story ... the accusers told cops Kasey was acting like a drunk a-hole and beat up Chaney for no reason. Kahl was arrested for drunk and disorderly conduct.

Kahl originally told cops he wanted to press charges. We'll see if he follows through.

Former "Bachelorette" star Kasey Kahl smashed a woman in the face at a Fresno nightclub, giving her a bloody nose ... this according to the alleged victim ... though Kasey claims it was all in self-defense.

TMZ broke the story ... Kahl was arrested early Sunday morning for drunk and disorderly conduct at Club Habano's nightclub.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Kahl was accused of attacking a man named Richard Chaney outside the club ... and then smashing Chaney's girlfriend in the face when she tried to break up the fight.

Cops say ... Chaney's GF, Renee Idsinga, told them she and Cheney were leaving the club when a "very intoxicated" Kahl approached them and began "talking s**t."

Chaney told cops Kahl had been running his mouth about having banged one of Renee's friends.

According to the report, Idsinga says her BF told Kahl to "stop being a d**k and stop talking to her" .. and that's when Kahl got violent ... striking Chaney several times in the face and head."

Idsinga told cops Kahl struck her in the face during the melee, causing her nose to bleed. She also admitted she scratched Kahl's neck in an effort to break up the fight.

Cops say Renee's nose was still bleeding when they arrived to the scene -- as was Chaney's mouth.

Police also spoke with Kahl -- who told them he had "a lot" to drink ... but insisted he DID NOT instigate the fight. Instead, Kahl claimed, "It was self defense."

In the police report, the arresting officer noted, "Kahl made it a point to tell me that he was a celebrity and he was on several reality shows including 'The Bachelor' and 'Celebrity Couple's Retreat.'"

According to police, Kahl said he wanted to press charges against the couple -- and the couple wanted to press charges against him.

Cops say Kahl was so "intoxicated and belligerent" ... they felt he couldn't take care of himself ... so they booked him into Fresno County Jail for his own safety. He was eventually released ... after taking a very smiley mug shot.

Calls to Kahl's rep have not been returned.

Kiptyn Locke
Kiptyn Locke -- a contestant on "The Bachelorette" who jumped to the show "Bachelor Pad" -- just underwent 4 1/2 hours of emergency surgery to repair severely ruptured discs in his neck ... that were perilously compressing against his spine.

Neck injuries are no joke ... but we're told Locke -- who is currently dating former "Bachelor" contestant Tenley Molzahn (left) -- is expected to make a full recovery. It's unclear how Kiptyn injured himself.

Tenley says, "There are definitely angels involved in this emergency."

The bad blood between cast members on "Bachelor Pad" has spilled into real life ... so says one of the losers who claims Graham Bunn punched him in the face at a nightclub this week.

TMZ spoke with Justin Rego (aka Rated-R) -- who was eliminated from the reality show last month ... who says he was hanging out at the wrap party at a Hollywood nightclub Wednesday night when all hell broke loose.

According to Rego, two other members of the show -- Graham Bunn and Blake Julian -- had gotten into an argument ... and it started to become physical.

Rego says he went to break up the fight -- when Graham punched him in the nose ... and he started to bleed. Sources at the club tell us security rushed over to the scene and escorted Graham out of the building.

Justin tells us he does not plan on pressing charges -- but says he's still pretty pissed off at Graham. A rep for Graham tells TMZ, "It was nothing -- just boys being boys.”
