Dec. 1, 2009: Casey Johnson, heiress to the Johnson & Johnson fortune, was arrested for grand theft after allegedly stealing clothing, jewelry and a 600-page legal document from her former friend—and according to tabloids, lover—supermodel Jasmine Lennard. The 30-year-old heiress, who supposed friends say has a drug problem, also reportedly left a used vibrator on Lennard's bed and some wet towels on the floor.

The case would never go to court, however, because on January 4, 2010, Johnson was found in a non-responsive state by the woman at whose Los Angeles home she had been staying. Her host, whose name has not been released, called 911, but Johnson, a diabetic, may have lapsed into a coma days earlier. Johnson was pronounced dead at the scene. Reality star Tila Tequila, who called herself Johnson's fiance, announced the death on her Twitter page, "Everyone please pray 4 my Wifey Casey Johnson. She has passed away. Thank u for all ur love and support but I will be offline to be w/ family."
