Casey began a relationship with model Jasmine after the Courtenay affair went up in literal flames. Jasmine told reporters recently that they did not have sex but that she'd tried to help Casey sober up and regain custody of her daughter, Ava. "I tried to get her off drugs and alcohol," Jasmine told The New York Post last month. "I tried to get her into a 12-step program. I tried to help take care of her daughter. I've given her money." In November, Jasmine got a call from Courtenay Semel, who told her that Casey had robbed Jasmine's Hollywood home, stealing jewelry, shoes, and clothing, and leaving a vibrator in Jasmine's bed. Courtenay sent a text message to Jasmine reading in part: "Casey Johnson just got into bed with me and she is wearing your underwear. You need to call police." Casey was arrested Dec. 1 and charged with grand larceny, then released on $20,000 bail.
And then we came to the end. Just a week or so after the theft-and-vibrators debacle, Tila Tequila declared via a rambling, mostly-naked Internet video that she and Casey were engaged, showing as proof her "17-carat diamond ring from my baby. It's so fat you can't even see it! So yeah, my baby got me this 17-carat ring. My baby takes care of me. Beat that J.Lo! Beat that Khloe and Lamar! Casey Johnson and Miss Tila Tequila are officially engaged. Woo!" Since Casey's death, Tila has been Twittering even more maudlinly than usual, interspersed with occasional requests that people respect her privacy, even as she's spilling her guts on a public forum. It is, how you say, gauche. And sad, but not for the reasons Tila thinks. 7 Worst Couples of 2009
