Casey Johnson, the lesbian heiress to the Johnson & Johnson fortune who recently made headlines with her engagement to bi-sexual reality star Tila Tequila, has died at age 30.
Her death was announced by Tila on her Twitter page and confirmed by police.
"Everyone please pray 4 my Wifey Casey Johnson," Tequila wrote "She has passed away. Thank u for all ur love and support but I will be offline to be w/ family."'
Los Angeles police and firefighters were called to a house at 11:51 a.m. Monday. Johnson was thought to have been dead for several days when her body was found.
"It appears to be a natural death," says police Officer Sara Faden. "There's no evidence of foul play. A toxicology report from the coroner's office will proceed next."
Casey had been suffering financial troubles in the months before her death. A celebrity news website claims she was sued last September for failing to make car lease payments on her Porsche Cayenne, which she had tried to hide from the company.
The same site claims she lost a $20,000 lawsuit to a nanny service a few months later.Johnson leaves behind a young daughter, Ava, with whom she had adopted from Kazakhstan in 2007 and was fighting with her mother over custody of.
Johnson's dad, who friends said is "devastated" by the sudden death of his wild-child daughter, lost his brother Keith to a drug overdose in 1975. He feared the same thing would happen to Casey.
The Johnson family said it was "mourning its tragic loss" and asked for privacy.
