Paul Walker’s Younger Girlfriend, Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell, Still Grieving His Death

When Paul Walker died sud­denly in a tragic car crash on Novem­ber 30, 2013, he not only left behind a 15-year-old daugh­ter, but also his girl­friend of seven years, Jas­mine Pilchard-Gosnell. The celebrity cou­ple first met when Paul Walker was 33 and Pilchard-Gosnell was only 16. But despite their 17-year age dif­fer­ence, they were very happy together and even shared a home in L.A.

At just 23 years old, the young woman is still strug­gling to come to terms with Paul Walker’s hor­rific death. Accord­ing to her father, Casey Gos­nell, his daugh­ter has been hav­ing a rough time mov­ing on, but is in ther­apy and is see­ing a grief coun­selor to help her work through the heart­break of los­ing Walker. “You have to under­stand that she is still ter­ri­bly wounded by Paul’s death and will be for a long time,” Gos­nell told the Daily Mail.

Jas­mine Pilchard-Gosnell has since left L.A. and moved back to her fam­ily home in Goleta, Cal­i­for­nia. “She’s try­ing to deal with her loss—it’s been very hard for her,” said the young woman’s father. “But she has her fam­ily and we’re try­ing to help and sup­port her as much as we can.”

The young woman, who has always stayed out of the spot­light, prob­a­bly won’t be dis­cussing Paul Walker’s death, at least not any­time soon, because it would be too hard for her to relive it all over again. “Maybe one day she’ll be ready to talk about Paul, but she’s not there yet,” added her father.

Jas­mine Pilchard-Gosnell is still report­edly close to Paul Walker’s two broth­ers, Caleb and Cody, who are step­ping in to help fin­ish Walker’s unfin­ished film, Fast & Furi­ous 7. The next install­ment in the pop­u­lar film fran­chise is expected to be released in April 2015.

Although he was never able to fin­ish Fast & Furi­ous 7, Paul Walker did com­plete another movie, Brick Man­sions, before his death. The crime drama, which stars the late actor as a Detroit cop try­ing to take down a dan­ger­ous crime lord, is still going ahead with its April 2014 release date.
