This doesn’t sound good. Renaissance Malibu, an exclusive Malibu rehab facility has filed a claim against the late heiress Casey Johnson‘s estate. Johnson went to rehab there in August, 2009, and they’re claiming the $74, 750 bill hasn’t been paid. Legal documents state that she spent 30 days at the facility and then received additional days of therapy. Johnson tragically died late last year and Los Angeles Coroner’s Office officially announced diabetic ketoacidosis as the cause of death.
Her entire estate was apparently valued at around $75,000. This would leave a total of $250 if the claim is paid in full, and would almost completely wipe out all of her assets. Shouldn’t her widow Tila Tequila step in and help her deceased “wife” pay up?
We’re not sure why people aren’t talking about Tila Tequila‘s crazy conversation with Howard Stern on his radio show this morning. Actually, we do know why – the entire world is sick of feeding into her publicity addiction and has finally stopped enabling her. Everyone except us. Oops! As usual, Tila spun some crazy sh*t that would be best suited as plot points on the next episode of Lost. Here are some of her claims:
- She was kicked off Friendster (Remember 2003, olds?) 5 times for having too many friends.
- Tom personally invited her to join MySpace after she became too popular for Friendster.
- She invited the 50,000 people on her mailing list to join MySpace with her and “kinda helped them [MySpace] blow up.”
- Her new site, TilaTequilaOMG, is a “legitimate celebrity gossip blog.”
- She’s the “OMG of all media.” We’d suggest she call herself the “WTF” or the “STFU” instead.
- She got artificially inseminated for her deceased “fiancee” Casey Johnson as “this was [Tila’s] promise to her.”
- Tila describes herself as “so devastated and really depressed” after Casey died, which seems like a terrible time to decide to bring a child into the world. But, you know, imagine what logic looks like inside Tila’s brain.
While there’s been no confirmation outside of her Twitter, Tila Tequila appears to be claiming she’s pregnant. “I have a baby growing inside of me now, and that is my new happiness in life,” she tweeted last night. While previously planning to act as a surrogate mom for her brother, Tequila says the bun in the oven is her own. “Its no longer my brother’s baby as Surrogate mother. It is MY very own baby…I’m just happy cuz the baby’s father is a AMERICAN HERO! Served in the US ARMY 4 10 years & fought war in Afgan & got shot. Now hes out of Army after 10 years and is now a fireman and EMT! I will tell u all more when the time is right.”
The lack of an explanatory press release might have something to do with Tila’s publicist, Jessica Cohen, no longer being around to make one. “I am no longer representing Tila Tequila as her publicist,” she said in a statement. “Some matters need to remain private and away from media attention and due to recent events, I realized that we need to part ways while she deals with the loss of her fiancee.” Between the tearful over Casey Johnson‘s dogs, her online screeds about her late fiancee’s family and her plans to celebrate Casey’s life at an upcoming concert (if she can just find someone to book her), one can only imagine what finally made her rep bolt.
Late heiress Casey Johnson was laid to rest Sunday after a small family funeral in New Jersey, according to Radar. Unsurprisingly, Tila Tequila was not asked to attend. “Yes her funeral is today and I can’t even see my wife for the last time to say goodbye to her and see her,” Johnson’s fiancee of nearly a month told the tab. “It’s breaking my heart… I’m crying so bad, they are horrible, mean people. Sure, one day I can visit her grave but I will never ever get to see her face again to say goodbye and kiss her before they bury her. I can’t talk about this now, it’s making me cry.” Tequila’s feud with the family reached a crescendo last week when longtime Johnson pals Nicky Hilton and Bijou Phillips removed Johnson’s clothes—and two dogs—from the reality star’s LA home.
While still accusing the family of euthanizing the dogs to bury with Johnson (“Can someone do me a favor and ask them for a LIVE VIDEO to see if the dog is STILL ALIVE??,” she tweeted) and threatening to release unflattering correspondence, Tequila says she’s turning a positive corner. “My Wifey would NOT want to constantly see me sad. She wants to see me HAPPY!,” she tweeted. “So now I will do that!” Along with hinting about “good news” involving her record label, Tequila removed vicious screeds about model Jasmine Lennard (who once accused Johnson of using her vibrator) from her blog. Hopefully she’ll keep it together for her scheduled Larry King Live appearance this Tuesday—if the Johnson family doesn’t succeed in getting her off the show.

When Nicky Hilton showed up Tuesday night to take longtime friend Casey Johnson‘s dogs and clothes from Tila Tequila‘s house, the late heiress‘s fiancee refused to give up the goods. When Hilton showed up again yesterday morning, Tequila called the police. “I had to call the police because they were getting very violent outside of my house and threatening to break in,” she wrote on her blog. “They kept kicking my door, pounding on it, and even left scratch marks on my windows and texted that they were going to try to break in from the back side!” Ironically, once police arrived—Tequila helped Hilton and Bijou Phillips put the stuff—and the pooches—in her van. Why the change of heart? “I don’t like drama,” she tweeted—before posting hysterically about Hilton’s plans to put the dogs to sleep (which Hilton denies). Watch video of the incident here.
As clearly implied by this scene, Johnson’s friends are at odds with Johnson’s lover of less than a month. “The thing I find the most sickening is that the media is giving Tila the one thing she craves: attention,” Courtney Semel—who previously dated both women—told People. “Tila, you knew her for a week.” “Next week I will tell u what they don’t want u 2 know,” Tequila promised. Considering the screed she recently posted about model Jazmine Leonard (“”F— YOU B—- YOU’RE CRAZY! UR BAD NEWS, A DRUG ADDICT, AND A CON ARTIST, PROFESSIONAL PROSTITUTE AND JUST ALL AROUND BAD NEWS!”), it’s hard to believe anyone could stop her.

While the cause and time of Casey Johnson‘s death have yet to be officially revealed, TMZ says law officials believe the heiress had been dead for several days before her body was discovered Monday morning. Fiancee Tila Tequila reportedly last saw Johnson on New Year’s Eve. “This is a very heartbreaking time for me. I just want some privacy as I deal with the loss of my Fiance Casey Johnson,” tweeted Tila. “[My] heart is shredded.” TMZ also claims Johnson had a history of diabetic comas, and insulin needles were found in her home by police.
Celebrity friends have come forward to pay their respects, including Lindsay Lohan (“you are in our hearts CJ”), Samantha Ronson (“R.I.P. Casey Johnson—so sick of those three letters”) and lifetime friend Paris Hilton, whose parents were friends with Johnson’s. “I am devastated to hear this news,” she told Life & Style Magazine. “I’ve known Casey since I was a baby. She had a big heart and she was a good friend. I feel so sad, I don’t want to believe it. My condolences go out to her family and loved ones.”

Despite reports by TMZ and E! that troubled Johnson & Johnson heiress Casey Johnson has died, her fianceé Tila Tequila has been furiously tweeting that she is actually in a coma. After knowing each other for a few hours, the pair announced their engagement last month, and discussed buying a house and having kids five days later.
Neighbors of Johnson say her maid came running out of her LA home this morning and screamed “She’s dead!” Her 3-year-old adopted daughter Ava is now in the custody of Casey’s mother in Manhattan.
Like her fianceé, Casey Johnson used Twitter frequently. Her last tweets were in the early morning hours of December 29th, wherein she discussed buying a new car with room for her daughter.

UPDATE: Tila Tequila has confirmed the death of her bride-to-be. At 10:15PM, she tweeted:
“R.I.P my Angel. @ u will forever be in my heart! I love u so so much and we will Marry when I see U in Heaven my Wifey.”
