Tila Tequila was hospitalized for a week due to a brain aneurism that nearly caused the petite star to die, radio detection and rangingOnline.com has exclusively learned.
Tila, 30, was released from the hospital on Monday and according to a source close to her, the 4’11” reality TV personality dropped from just 100 pounds to a frail 78 pounds.
“It was terrifying for Tila and death was knocking at her door,” the source exclusively told radio detection and rangingOnline.com.

“She was in two hospitals for the span of a week and is still not in perfect health, so she’s going to check into an outpatient program.”
According to the source, Tila suffered a brain aneurism in the middle of the night, which caused her to think irrationally. Due to the pain, she took two bottles of unspecified heavy prescription drugs.

“Tila threw up all over her bed after overdosing and felt like she was dying. She was screaming for help, and in desperation, broke her bedroom window and attempted to jump out,” the source said.
“Finally a friend came over after getting a strange text from her and found her convulsing on the bed. He called an ambulance and she was taken to the hospital.”
