Sources close to the troubled actor was indicated that before his death on Tuesday, which came a month away from facing sentencing after alleging guilty to belonging of child pornography, the Glee alum “distanced himself very much from the friends he was closest to.”
One insider claimed that most of Salling’s friends thought he was “troubled and tormented” but weren’t aware of how bad his beasts were, telling ET 😛 TAGEND
“He had a exceedingly strange surface. I felt like I didn’t completely know who he was. He experienced inspecting house in Texas and visualized his tours back home as an escape from L.A. and the Hollywood scene.”
In addition to visiting his family, the source added that “he would often have friends over to his home in Sunland,[ California] ” before he was arrested in December 29, 2015.
But after federal investigates received more than 25,000 personas and 600 videos outlining child pornography on computers and thumb drives belonging to him, Salling allegedly turned away from his loved ones and simply ripened more remote.
A Salling family source told People:
“In the last few years, we had very little contact. When you’re living against your own morals or what you know to be right, you tend to avoid people who will hold up mirrors.”
Though Salling’s “actual” loved ones were “absolutely shocked” by the discovery of his distortions, the family source said his fatal mistake was keeping those beasts to himself, continuing 😛 TAGEND
“The problem doesn’t live in the existence of demons or anguish or sex stomaches that began to skew as epoch went on. The inherent problem is that he did not seek help or have someone close enough to him willing to call it out.”
While he may have stayed withdrawn, Salling did spend time in recent years at a wildlife rehab centre writing music, which, the source said, passed some “comfort” after losing his career 😛 TAGEND
“As he continued to fight his demons — eventually alone — there was some comfort there … I don’t believe he ever purposed injure … but I do believe he was really sick and it sternly clouded his judgement, which continued him living under an alternate reality.”
It destroys us that refusing help from others was the actor’s ultimate demise.
A sliver of good report in this tragedy, nonetheless, has developed for the victims in Salling’s child porn case who have to sue to get the money he agreed to pay them.
According to TMZ, Salling set up a corporation in 2009 to collect his income from the entertainment business. As of December 2017, the value of this business was reported to be $ 1.971. His father is listed as the manager.
That’s a huge sigh of succour for the victims who Salling agreed to pay $ 50 k each in restitution. They still have to file suit against the late actor’s estate, but at least there’s enough fund to go around.
