Sources close to the troubled performer was indicated that before his death on Tuesday, which came a month away from facing sentencing after pleading guilty to wealth 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 very strange surface. I felt like I didn’t altogether know who he was. He enjoyed visiting clas in Texas and looked 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 investigators find more than 25,000 personas and 600 videos imaging child pornography on computers and thumb drives belonging to him, Salling supposedly turned away from his loved ones and simply changed 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 perversions, the family source said his fatal mistake was maintaining those demons to himself, continuing 😛 TAGEND
“The problem doesn’t live in the existence of demons or pain or sexual desires that began to skew as epoch gone 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While he may have stayed withdrawn, Salling did spend time in recent years at a wildlife rehab core writing music, which, the source said, handed some “comfort” after losing his career 😛 TAGEND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 purposed damage … but I do believe he was really sick and it sternly gloomed his judgement, which obstructed him living under an alternate reality.”
It devastates us that refusing the assistance provided by others was the actor’s eventual demise.
A sliver of good bulletin 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 presentation 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 refund. They still have to file suit against the late actor’s estate, but at least there’s enough fund to go around.
