Meet model Lanessa Grace, the ex-girlfriend of Andrew Getty, who was found dead in the bathroom of his Hollywood Hills residence on Tuesday afternoon.
47-year-old Getty –an heir to one of America’s biggest oil fortunes –presented a serious injury to his lower body, though police sources have said “it does not appear to be a criminal type of act, things could change.”
According to TMZ, Lanessa Grace, also known as Lanessa De Jonge, is currently being detained as a possible witness/suspect. The couple had a history with LAPD, cops had been to his residence 31 times, mostly for domestic disturbances.
Sources revealed the pair had a troubled relationship with Andrew filing a restraining order against her, she has also been placed under a 5150 psychiatric hold in the past. In a desperate attempt Lanessa allegedly broke into Andrew’s house more than once.
Lanessa and Andrew were together for four years. The model and actress says about herself on a ModelMayhem profile:
Passion is past tense of my adoration and gratefulness to modeling and acting. That is a proven fact. Settled and forthright is Grace upon admission. Willing and able to listen not be heard. Given conviction of the end result makes this business perfect. Modeling is where I lay my human nature to attain more once a precedence stands so I will always get better and learn and love modeling. Realizing the product is the point and not me does not bother me a bit because without a canvas there would never be a painting. High cheek bones on a large head…makes good canvas!
The 33-year-old was arrested last October for: “148 Resist, Obstruct, Delay Peace Officer, 243(B) Battery On Peace Officer/Emergency Personnel 537(A)(1) Defrauding An Innkeeper By Non Payment, 602 Trespassing”
