Jennifer Lawrence ‘heartbroken’ after suicide of Clay Adler

PassengersJennifer Lawrence at Passengers premiere actress Jennifer Lawrence is reportedly “heartbroken” over the death of MTV alum Clay Adler.

The two were longtime friends and upon learning of her friend’s death, a source reports that Jennifer took the news very hard, saying: “Clay brings Jennifer back to her humble beginnings and hearing that he took his own life really has made Jennifer feel heartbroken.”

An insider told HollywoodLife.com that Jennifer “…is really sad because she remembers him fondly and never wants to hear anything like this happen to anyone, especially to someone she once knew very well. It’s a shame and she is really bummed out over it.”

Clay, 27, who starred on the MTV reality show Newport Harbor: The Real Orange County from 2007 to 2008, also had a guest role on the ABC Family TV series Make It or Break It and a small role in the 2009 CBS-TV movie The Fish Tank.

He was on a shooting trip with friends in California on March 25th when he suddenly turned the gun on himself and shot himself in the head. He was rushed to hospital where he died from his injuries the following day. TMZ reports that no drugs or alcohol were found in Clay’s system.

Clay had aspirations to work in the entertainment industry, explaining in a 2007 interview about starring in Newport Harbor: The Real Orange County, “I’m hoping (the show) will kind of jump start it. I’m interested in the whole aspect, whether it be in front of the camera or behind.”

Those close to the reality star celebrated his life with a surf ritual known as a “paddle-out” at Newport Beach on April 8th. ~Alexa Caruso

    There seems to be a high number of reality stars killing themselves.

    Lee Mac, can’t we care about both? People with lives a hell of a lot better than mine are killing themselves. This is a problem. It is also a problem that children are starving in the Sudan.

    If it was a close friend of yours and someone called you a snowflake for feeling sad about your friend’s suicide – wondering if there was anything you could do to prevent it…how would you feel? Jerk.

    depression to suicide thoughts to taking that into play is never good and we as people need to treat other with much more care and love of god to each other, I was at that stage in two thousand and ten were I was at a place of suicidal thoughts at it was scary to say the least, they only way I got out of that was my relationship with god with Jesus Christ and holy spirit, if you get to that stage remember their always Christ at u can take as your lord and saviour

    this is so sad when someone you know does this. Their pain is over but all their friends and family suffer so much afterwards.

    So sad to see she did this to herself.

    Wombat, for clarification, it is he and not she that took her life.

    It is very sad for the friend or family of a suicide victim! When someone you care or love deeply takes their own life, it can weaken others’ spirit and makes us weaker in the same situation, usually depression. So those of you suffering from suicidal ideation or who have attempted suicide, ask for help, don’t take those you love down with you!!!

    Your lives are all precious; so no matter how down you feel, know that there will also be better days!

    Love someone who cares about people!!!

    It’s all sad. The kids starving far away for reasons they can’t control; the more affluent people who lose belief in control they do have. It’s all a waste of humanity and human potential. All tragic. If it’s someone you know, that just amplifies it.
