Sources close to the troubled actor was indicated that before his death on Tuesday, which came a month away from facing sentencing 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 friends thought he was “troubled and tormented” but weren’t aware of how bad his demons were, telling ET 😛 TAGEND
“He had a exceedingly mysterious side. I felt like I didn’t absolutely know who he was. He enjoyed calling family in Texas and determined his expeditions 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 noticed more than 25,000 portraits and 600 videos imaging child pornography on computers and thumb drives are integral to him, Salling allegedly turned away from his loved ones and exclusively grew more distant.
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 stand 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 stopping those beasts to himself, continuing 😛 TAGEND
“The problem doesn’t live in the existence of beasts or sting or sex stomaches that began to skew as period went on. The intrinsic trouble 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While he may have stayed withdrawn, Salling did spend time in recent years at a wildlife rehab core writing music, which, different sources said, caused some “comfort” after losing his career 😛 TAGEND
“As he continued to fight his demons — ultimately alone — there was some comfort there … I don’t believe he ever proposed damage … but I do believe he was really sick and it severely clouded his judgement, which remained him living under an alternate member reality.”
It destroys us that refusing the assistance of others was the actor’s eventual 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 aid for the main victims who Salling agreed to pay $ 50 k each in refund. They still have to file suit against the late actor’s estate, but at least there’s enough money to go around.
