The reality TV star, whose fiancee Casey Johnson died earlier this month (Jan10), has parted ways with her spokesperson Jessica Cohen, who cited “recent events” as the reason she handed in her notice.
A statement from Cohen reads, “I am no longer representing Tila Tequila as her publicist. Some matters need to remain private and away from media attention and due to recent events, I realised that we need to part ways while she deals with the loss of her fiancee. I will forward any remaining inquiries to her until the new publicist takes over.”
Tequila – real name Tila Nguyen – has been criticised for publicly grieving for Johnson through social networking site Twitter.com, telling fans of her suicidal thoughts, her ill feelings towards the heiress’ family and friends, as well as her hopes to gain custody of Johnson’s adopted daughter, Ava.
