Johnson & Johnson heiress Casey Johnson was reported dead at age 30 yesterday, a news story that gained traction because the socialite had recently captured headlines, as the affianced to Tila Tequila and one-third of a love triangle with Courtenay Semel.
As soon as the news broke, readers realized quickly that Johnson's death--which must have come as a painful shock to her family (father is NY Jets owner Woody Johnson) and lifelong friends--was overshadowed in the headlines by her fledgling ties to Tequila.
Not to miss an opportunity to think publicly, Tequila (who was reportedly mid-fight and out of contact with Johnson at the time of her death), took to Twitter to communicate her grave concern as the news filtered through:
Applause to Tila for even entertaining, for one hour, the notion of going offline in dealing with such a tragic event.
However, while we don't doubt that Tequila--whose life and mind seem so increasingly confusing, sad and fucked that we're almost unable to talk about her anymore--has suffered a deep loss... sometimes, "Omg" and exclamation points don't convey exactly how deep.
