LOS ANGELES (AP) - The mother of Andrew Getty's girlfriend says the oil heir had been diagnosed with a brain aneurysm and had not been eating or sleeping well in the days before his death.
Marilynne DeJonge told The Associated Press she hasn't spoken to her daughter Lanessa DeJonge since Saturday and is worried about her. She says DeJonge met Getty seven years ago and depended on him for housing, and she doesn't have a phone.
The mother says her 32-year-old daughter was charmed by Getty after he saw her modeling photos and wanted to meet her. She took care of him, trying to get him to eat healthy, but he preferred candy.
She said her daughter had a downstairs room in Getty's spacious Hollywood Hills mansion.
DeJonge found the 47-year-old Getty dead Tuesday and called 911.
