Casey Johnson’s dogs are not being put to sleep, a source close to the late heiress’ family told Access Hollywood.
One of the animals is quite old and will be taken to a vet in LA, then one in New York, to decide what’s best, the source said.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Johnson friends Nicky Hilton and Bijou Phillips were spotted at the Studio City home of Tila Tequila – Johnson’s former fiancee – where they collected the pooches and some of Johnson’s clothing and possessions on Wednesday. A tearful Tila claimed to reporters at the time that the dogs were going to be put down.
According to Access’ source, the Johnson family has not met with Tila since Johnson’s death – and doesn’t plan to.
As for whether Tila will be allowed at Johnson’s New York funeral on Sunday, the source said, “I’ll let you guess on that one.”
On Thursday, Tila lashed at Casey’s family and friends on Twitter, writing, “Now that she’s gone her family and so called “FRIENDS” pop up at my house, stealing our stuff & acting like they care? BULLS***! My Wife hated them. Just wait til I tell everyone the truth I have proof, and the family is a piece of shit. No wonder she wanted 2 marry me.”
