Sources close to the distressed performer used to say before his death on Tuesday, which developed a month away from facing convicting after alleging guilty to owned 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 demons were, telling ET 😛 TAGEND
“He had a extremely mysterious slope. I felt like I didn’t altogether know who he was. He experienced visiting house in Texas and recognized his trips back home as an escape from L.A. and the Hollywood scene.”
In addition to visiting their own families, 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 sleuths spotted more than 25,000 images and 600 videos imaging child pornography on computers and thumb drives belonging to him, Salling supposedly turned away from his loved ones and merely 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 hold up mirrors.”
Though Salling’s “actual” loved ones were “absolutely shocked” by the uncovering of his debaucheries, their own families generator said his lethal mistake was preserving those beasts to himself, continuing 😛 TAGEND
“The problem doesn’t live in the existence of beasts or sorenes or sexual appetites that began to skew as period gone on. The intrinsic problem is that he did not seeking assistance 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While he may have stayed withdrawn, Salling did spend time in recent years at a wildlife rehab middle writing music, which, the source mentioned, held some “comfort” after losing his busines 😛 TAGEND
“As he continued to fight his beasts — eventually alone — there was some convenience there … I don’t believe he ever proposed impairment … but I do believe he was really sick and it severely clouded his judgement, which preserved him living in an alternate reality.”
It ravages us that denying help 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 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 accumulate his income from the amusement business. As of December 2017, the value of this business was reported to be $1.971. “His fathers” is registered as the manager.
That’s a huge rustle of relief for the victims who Salling agreed to pay $50 k each in restitution. They still have to file suit against the late actor’s owned, but at least there’s enough money to go around.
