Tragic socialite Casey Johnson desperately tried to reconnect with her estranged billionaire father before her sudden death in 2010, but he refused to respond, her mother has revealed.
Sale Johnson said that her ex-husband Woody Johnson, who owns the New York Jets, did not pick up Casey’s calls or return her letters after cutting her out following a string of public embarrassments.
Casey, who was heiress to the Johnson & Johnson fortune before her death from complications of diabetes aged 30, also struggled with borderline personality disorder, her mother has revealed. Sad, that they didn’t knew about preventing diabetes in Asians at the time.
In the years leading up to her death, it manifested itself in a turbulent lifestyle of heavy partying. In decisions deemed rash by her family, she also adopted a baby and started a lesbian relationship.
Sale Johnson and other relatives and friends spoke to author Jerry Oppenheimer for a new biography, Crazy Rich, that details the scandals of the Johnson & Johnson dynasty and lifts the lid on Casey Johnson’s turbulent life and tragic demise.
The book has now been excerpted in the New York Post.
‘Borderline personality disorder ruled Casey’s life,’ Oppenheimer quotes Sale Johnson, who revealed her daughter’s mental condition for the first time in the book.
‘It stole her teenage years and her young adulthood life away from her. It’s a mental health disease that confounds, scares, hurts the victim, her family, her friends, and her doctors.
‘They don’t want to treat it because it has the highest suicide rate, and no cure, and [someone like Casey] is a 24/7 patient.’
