Paul Walker’s girlfriend is still trying to cope with his passing, months after he died in a tragic car accident. Jasmine Pilchard Gosnell, 23, is currently in grief counseling, according to her father.
Pilchard-Gosnell was with Walker for seven years when he died, and was reportedly inconsolable afterwards. At the time, she was a college student in Santa Barbara, but it is unclear if she continued with her studies. Her father, Casey Gosnell, 47, tells DailyMail that she is now in grief counceling and living in a secluded refuge about 120 miles north of Los Angeles in Goleta, California, at the family’s home.
“You have to understand that she is still terribly wounded by Paul’s death and will be for a long time. Maybe one day she’ll be ready to talk about Paul but she’s not there yet,” he added.
Her uncle, Barton Bruner, spoke to the Daily Mail about their relationship last year. “Paul was a really good guy and Jasmine is broken up by this,” he said. “I went to Thanksgiving with him, played golf with him. They had their ups and downs, but they were together and looking to spend a bright future together.
This is horrible news and unexpected. Her mother is with her and she is comforting her.”
The “Fast and Furious” actor was 40 years old when the Porsche Carrera GT in which he was a passenger crashed into a tree and burst into flames in Santa Clarita, Calif., on Nov. 30. Roger Rodas, 38, was the driver of the high-performance sports car that crashed. He was Walker’s friend, business partner and a co-owner of the car-customization store Always Evolving, in Santa Clarita. The pair had just attended an event for Walker’s charity, Reach Out Worldwide.
Walker also leaves behind a 15-year-old daughter, Meadow, who recently moved from Hawaii to California to be closer to him.
