Reality television celebrity Tila Tequila almost died after a prescription drug overdose following a life threatening brain aneurism.
The ‘Shot of Love’ star was hospitalized for a week after her overdose, just after she suffered the brain aneurism. A source close to the star said it was the aneurism that made Tila take the prescription drugs. She was acting irrationally and wasn’t, in fact, suicidal.
The insider added,
“It was terrifying for Tila and death was knocking at her door. 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. Finally a friend came over after getting a strange text from her and found her convulsing on the bed.”
Tila was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance after the episode. According to the source, Tila’s aneurism made her act irrationally, and that is why “she took two bottles of the heavy prescription drugs due to the pain.”
It is possible she might have been left with permanent brain damage as a result of the incident. The source said,
“It’s sad to think she may have some permanent brain damage. She still can’t fully speak properly.”
