From Radar Online:

Tila Tequila was hospitalized for a week due to a brain aneurysm that nearly caused the petite star to die, has exclusively learned.

Tila, 30, was released from the hospital on Monday and according to a source close to her, the 4’11” reality TV personality dropped from just 100 pounds to a frail 78 pounds.

“It was terrifying for Tila and death was knocking at her door,” the source exclusively told “She was in two hospitals for the span of a week and is still not in perfect health, so she’s going to check into an outpatient program.”

According to the source, Tila suffered a brain aneurysm in the middle of the night, which caused her to think irrationally. Due to the pain, she took two bottles of unspecified heavy prescription drugs. “Tila threw up all over her bed after overdosing and felt like she was dying. She was screaming for help, and in desperation, broke her bedroom window and attempted to jump out,” the source said.

“Finally a friend came over after getting a strange text from her and found her convulsing on the bed. He called an ambulance and she was taken to the hospital.” Tila was hospitalized just in time to stabilize her and she was under intensive care all week. “It’s sad to think she may have some permanent brain damage,” the source said. “She still can’t fully speak properly.”

According to other sources (ahem, Tila‘s alleged roommate), Tila had been trying to kill herself “all week”:

Sources say Tila was in and out of consciousness in the house … and officials decided she needed psychiatric help, stat.

Tila was released … but the drama didn’t end there. Last night, Tila’s manager had a sneaking suspicion something was terribly wrong, so she called 911.

Cops went to Tila’s home to do a welfare check, but Tila refused to open the door. Tila then called 911 to find out why officers were at her home … and explained she couldn’t answer the door because she was in a wheelchair.

I guess the only thing that really, really surprises me about this situation is that Tila Tequila flat-out tried to kill herself and didn’t succeed, but yet Lindsay Lohan‘s walking around like the reanimated corpse whose head just won’t fall off. I mean, honestly! Who would have ever guessed that Lindsay Lohan would be doing “better” than Tila Tequila at any given point? Jesus. Guess that whole ‘Judaism’ thing didn’t work out very well, did it, Tila girl?

  • When your name is Tila Tequila you’re not exactly going to end with the sentences “and she lived happily ever after”. It’s going to sound more like “the cause of death is undetermined at this point in the investigation”.

  • I don’t know. This girl has a history of crazy/irrational behavior, are they trying to cover up for her attempted suicide by saying a brain aneurysm made her do it?

    Somebody had better throw a net over this crazy little girl before she really offs herself.

  • Look man, I don’t care how annoying she is, I’m glad she didn’t die. The world would be slightly less amusing without her and her multiple personalities. (She once told Stern there was “an old British man” named Owen living inside her)

    • I can completely believe there’s an old British man inside of her, just not in the way she means.
