The funeral for 30-year-old Casey Johnson was a small, private affair attended only by family and close friends. Johnson was found dead in her home in Los Angeles on Jan 4. An official cause of death has yet to be determined. Johnson suffered from diabetes, but it is not yet known if the disease was a contributor to her death.

Casey Johnson’s girlfriend, Tila Tequila, was reportedly not invited to attend the socialite’s funeral and was not present at the service. Tequila said her therapist put her on “suicide watch” after Johnson’s death but she is now doing fine. “I know Casey wants me to be alive and she hates seeing me like this,” Tequila told People. “She always hated it when she would see me cry.”

Tila Tequila was scheduled to appear on The Larry King Show Tuesday night to discuss the late as part of a tribute to the late Johnson & Johnson heiress. Tequila was dropped from the program, however, after Johnson’s family allegedly protested her appearance on the show.

Donations in Johnson’s memory are being accepted by the Casey Johnson Memorial at the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
