Sources close to the perturbed actor like to remind you that before his death on Tuesday, which came a month away from facing convicting after alleging guilty to property 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 pals thought he was “troubled and tormented” but weren’t aware of how bad his beasts were, telling ET 😛 TAGEND
“He had a extremely strange area. I felt like I didn’t absolutely know who he was. He enjoyed seeing lineage in Texas and met his trips back home as an fleeing from L.A. and the Hollywood scene.”
In addition to visiting their own families, the resources was also indicated that “he would often have friends over to his home in Sunland,[ California] ” before he was arrested in December 29, 2015.
But after federal investigators felt more than 25,000 images and 600 videos illustrating child pornography on computers and thumb drives belonging to him, Salling reportedly turned away from his loved ones and merely proliferated 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 disclosure of his falsifications, their own families source said his lethal misstep was saving those demons to himself, continuing 😛 TAGEND
“The problem doesn’t lives in the existence of demons or pain or sex lusts that began to skew as day went on. The intrinsic difficulty 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While he may have stayed withdrawn, Salling did spend time in recent years at a wildlife rehab core writing music, which, the source said, demonstrated some “comfort” after “losing ones” vocation 😛 TAGEND
“As he continued to fight his demons — eventually alone — there was some convenience there … I don’t believe he ever aimed damage … but I do believe he was really sick and it severely gloomed his judgement, which kept him living in an alternate reality.”
It destroys us that repudiating help from others was the actor’s eventual demise.
A sliver of good news in this misfortune, however, has developed for the victims in Salling’s progeny porn speciman 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 entertainment business. As of December 2017, the value of this business was reported to be $1.971. “His fathers” is rostered as the manager.
That’s a huge exhale of relief for the victims who Salling agreed to pay $50 k each in refund. They still have to file suit against the late actor’s owned, but at least there’s enough coin to go around.
