U.S. reality TV star Tila Tequila has explained her reasons for publicly mourning the death of fiancee Casey Johnson via a social networking website - insisting she relies on her internet fans because she is friendless.
The pint-sized pin-up has come under intense scrutiny for detailing her grief over her lover's tragic death on Twitter.com, posting message after her message about her loss, as well as her ill feelings towards Johnson's powerful family, friends and former lovers.
Tequila's online messaging has also landed her in legal trouble - British model Jasmine Lennard set her lawyers on her after she posted an online rant accusing the model of trying to "ruin" Johnson's life.
But the A Shot At Love star insists she needs to share her feelings on the web - because she has no one else she can confide in.
In a post on her Twitter page, she writes, "Why do I tweet so much? Even before Casey passed away? Because I have no friends! There! The truth comes out! Just pray 4 (sic) her please!.
"PPL (people) say I need 2 (sic) get off Twitter & grieve with friends & family... Where? I dont have any! Casey was my only family & my dogs! Worst day ever."
