She was put on life support for "critical loss of brain and organ function."

Her close friend Melinda Farina tweeted to Allemand's fans to ask for support.

Allemand was admitted for an unspecified medical emergency at a New Orleans hospital Monday night. "I'm so sad about my best friend right now," Farina wrote. "How could this have happened to such an incredible person."

Girardi tweeted about the news. "Gia you are my angel! You changed so many lives with your beautiful soul and will be missed and loved forever," she wrote.

Allemand had been dating NBA player Ryan Anderson. Former "Bachelor" Sean Lowe tweeted his condolences to Allemand's family.

"My prayers go out to @GiaAllemand's family during this time," Lowe wrote. "Life on earth is but a vapor and she's with our Lord now."

Before she gained fame on "The Bachelor," Allemand was a model, actress, and ballet dancer. She began working at a young age, appearing in commercials for Gerber and Johnson & Johnson. Allemand attended the University of Hartford, where she took acting classes. Long before she was romantically linked with Anderson, Allemand also dated Yankees pitcher Carl Pavano.
