Gia Allemand’s Mom: I “Refute” All Theories On My Daughter’s Suicide
By Michael Lewittes | 11:15 am, August 16th, 2013
On Thursday, Playboy model Loredana Ferriolo told the New York Daily News that Allemand “sounded stuffy” the night before she hanged herself.
Ferriolo claimed to the paper, “Either she was crying or she had a cold. I asked her and she paused and said, ‘Yeah, I have a cold.’ I thought she was crying. But she insisted it was a cold.”
The model further alleged that Allemand “hated” living in New Orleans, and was desperate to move back to New York.
But Allemand’s mother Donna Micheletti tells Gossip Cop she feels Ferriolo is NOT a trusted source to speak on behalf of her daughter.
Micheletti says, “Gia expressed directly to me that she did not trust [Ferriolo] and her motives for her own public exposure.”
Allemand’s mom further tells us, “The family and close friends of Gia Allemand have not spoken to the media to date, nor have they posted comments or insight on Twitter.”
Micheletti adds, “I am personally going on record to refute all statements to the media out there thus far with the exception of official statements we have released.”

Gia Allemand Mom Statement:
“The family and close friends of Gia Allemand have not spoken to the media to date, nor have they posted comments or insight on Twitter. There are numerous statements and theories in the media regarding Gia’s death and her life that refer to sources close to Gia or friends of hers. As her mother, I am well aware of Gia’s close friends and her best friends and I am personally going on record to refute all statements to the media out there thus far with the exception of official statements we have released through publicist Penelope Jean Hayes, and those jointly with Ryan Anderson’s NBA team representation. Gia liked everyone and always found the good in people, however there were acquaintances that she had disassociated with whom are now speaking as her close friends. I don’t like to give further publicity by mentioning names here, however there is a particular individual, Loredana Ferriolo, identifying herself as Gia’s best friend and the fact is that Gia expressed directly to me that she did not trust this individual and her motives for her own public exposure. After the funeral, I do intend to speak about my dear daughter’s life and death, and will do so in an open disclosure way with a trusted media source. Thank you for all those truly concerned and God bless.”
