Renfro's Engaged Ex-girlfriend Shocked At Actor's Death

BRAD RENFRO's ex-girlfriend has been left devastated by the actor's sudden death - just days after she announced her engagement to another man. The Client star, who had a history of drug-related problems, was found dead in his Los Angeles apartment last week (ends15Jan08), and his unexpected passing shocked his former girlfriend Rachele Leeper. Leeper, who dated Renfro on and off for six years until last year (07), had got engaged to her boyfriend Derek just days before Renfro passed on 15 January (08). And at the time of his death, Renfro had been trying to get in touch with Leeper. She says, "Brad had been calling my phone and had been leaving me a bunch of messages up until two days before he died. But I hadn't had a chance to call him back. "Plus I'm engaged to somebody else and so it's kind of awkward for my fiance for me to be talking to my ex-boyfriend so I really didn't get to talk to him that much anymore." Leeper admits she will always miss the romantic Renfro the outside world never saw. She adds, "When he was sober, he was a really good person. He wasn't always perfect, but nobody is. He always bought me flowers, he would buy flowers all the time or plants or just fun little stupid stuff we would play with. He would buy me random things."

To be honest I didn't know who this actor was. I had to check out who he was on websites. Sorry to hear about him didn't know he was still acting after doing the "client" which I did see. Maybe Hollywood should really be checking out more on their stars; doesn't make sense so young and so dead. Sending my late regards to his family and friends.

I feel bad for Leeper. My ex boyfriend killed himself and the day before he tried contacting me but I wasn't available. Things will get better.
