Tila claims she has been vindicated, saying "I always knew she died of natural causes while others kept insinuating that she died of drug problems" and "She never does [illegal] drugs so I told everybody that it was natural causes." However, after Casey's death, Tila was the first to say that Casey died because of a prescription drug overdose.
Tila also went on Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell days after Casey's death and stated that she told Casey to stop taking her medications.
VELEZ-MITCHELL: Okay. All right.
Now on to a very serious matter. You spoke about your belief that Casey died from a lethal combination of sleeping pills and complications from her diabetes. There's been so much talk, published reports that she struggled with alcohol and drugs. Did you ever witness her abusing drugs, either prescription or illegal?
TEQUILA: I definitely, when we first got engaged, she moved into my home and that's when I saw her taking a lot of pills with her diabetes. I knew she had diabetes and I've never experienced anyone with diabetes before with all those syringes so it kind of scared me a little bit. But she taught me about diabetes and what I should do if she ever wanted to see her and what not and...
VELEZ-MITCHELL: Are you saying essentially that -- yes, go ahead.
TEQUILA: As for all other pills, I had no idea what they were. She had them in her pillbox that her doctor has prescribed them to her. I had no idea what they were. She wouldn't tell me what they were.
I asked her what they were and she wouldn't tell me. And it was just then like, you know, those little pillboxes that's Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Wednesday, Friday, whatever. And she would have like five pills in each, you know, locket and I never knew what it was and I asked her.
I was very concerned. I said what is all these -- all these pills that you're taking because you really don't need to.
And in the beginning, she was, I admit, taking a lot of pills. I don't know what they were, but they're a prescription that her doctor prescribed her and along with her diabetes.
But after we got engaged for a while then she slowly stopped taking all the pills because sleeping -- I found that her sleeping with me at night really soothes her and calms her down.
There you have it. Tila is a doctor and knew what was best for a diabetic, though she stated earlier in the interview she had never met anyone with diabetes. She told Casey to stop taking medications, even though she didn't know what the medications were used for. She went on to say Casey died from a prescription drug overdose and then that Casey wasn't using drugs and she knew the entire time it was natural causes.
You wanted vindication, Tila? There. It is all yours.
