Sources close to the perturbed actor said that before his death on Tuesday, which came a month away from facing convicting after pleading guilty to possession of child pornography, the Glee alum “distanced himself very much from my best friend he was closest to.”
One insider claimed that most of Salling’s pals thought he was “troubled and tormented” but weren’t aware of how bad his beasts were, telling ET 😛 TAGEND
“He had a very strange area. I felt like I didn’t completely know who he was. He experienced calling clas in Texas and met his trips back home as an escape from L.A. and the Hollywood scene.”
In addition to visiting their own families, the resources 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 sleuths determined more than 25,000 portraits and 600 videos outlining child pornography on computers and thumb drives belonging to him, Salling reportedly turned away from his loved ones and merely grew 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 lessons or what you know to be right, you tend to avoid people who will hold out mirrors.”
Though Salling’s “actual” loved ones were “absolutely shocked” by the finding of his perversions, their own families source said his fatal blunder was keeping those demons to himself, continuing 😛 TAGEND
“The problem doesn’t live in the existence of demons or sting or sex desires that began to skew as epoch went on. The intrinsic 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While he may have stayed withdrawn, Salling did spend time in recent years at a wildlife rehab hub writing music, which, the resources said, passed some “comfort” after losing his busines 😛 TAGEND
“As he continued to fight his beasts — ultimately alone — there was some solace there … I don’t believe he ever planned damage … but I do believe he was really sick and it severely gloomed his judgement, which obstructed him living in an alternate member reality.”
It devastates us that rejecting assistance from others was the actor’s eventual demise.
A sliver of good bulletin in this misfortune, however, has developed for the victims in Salling’s infant porn event who have to sue to get the money he agreed to pay them.
According to TMZ, Salling set up a corporation in 2009 to obtain his income from the amusement business. As of December 2017, the value of this business was reported to be $1.971. His father is rolled as the manager.
That’s a huge sigh of succor for the main victims who Salling agreed to pay $50 k each in reinstatement. They still have to file suit against the late actor’s property, but at least there’s enough money to go around.
