How Paul Walker’s Young Girlfriend is Coping with His Tragic Death

Paul Walker

It’s been almost a week now, but the world is still in shock over the sudden death of 40-year-old actor Paul Walker, who was in the passenger seat of a Porsche that hit a pole and tree before bursting into flames, tragically killing him and the driver, professional racer Roger Rodas, on November 30, 2013.

Walker left behind a 15-year-old daughter, but not many people know that he also left behind his long-time girlfriend, 23-year-old Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell. The actor was always private about his personal life, but the young woman has now been thrust into the spotlight. She was recently seen outside Walker’s home, her first time stepping out in public since his death, seeking comfort in the arms of a friend.

Pilchard-Gosnell, a college student, has also been leaning on family, especially her mother, to help her get through the heartbreaking news of Walker’s death. “Paul was a really good guy and Jasmine is broken up by this. I went to Thanksgiving with him, played golf with him,” her uncle recently said in an interview. “They had their ups and downs, but they were together and looking to spend a bright future together.”

The celebrity couple first met back in 2006 when Pilchard-Gosnell was only 16—Walker was 33 at the time. Despite their 17-year age difference, their May-December relationship has flourished over the past seven years and the young woman has even stepped in as a stepmother figure for Walker’s daughter, Meadow. It’s believed Pilchard-Gosnell is the one who actually broke the news to Meadow about her father’s death. We can only hope they’re able to lean on each other now as they help each other through their tragic loss.

        My sister was 31 met her boss he was 65 or so. When they got married she was 33 then a year later she says I’m a grandma I didn’t know he had a 30 year old daughter. I was 31!!!
        I only knew of the two very young kids he had from a previous marriage. 11 and 13 that’s just wrong. Plus my 6 year old kept calling him
        pa pa instead of uncle… now he’s like 71 and they are divorced. Smart guy with a prenuptial but yuck freaking awkward everytime. Everytime. Everytime. Try that at The Olé Dinner Table Family get togethers.….

      Actually, what’s gross is that he started dating her when he was 33 and she was a good jail-bait age of 16. I heard that wasn’t the first time he dated an underage girl, either. I guess he did so as well in his late 20’s.

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME. He was a child molester. I heard about this last week and it made me sick. To think him a child molester and her mother is a low life for allowing this to start. He should have been in jail 7 years ago not continuing like he is normal. So all of his famous friends who knew about this are just as guilty as he was.

      I think you all need to get a life and move on you. Before you point fingers at others for not being perfect you need to remember you have 4 pointing back at you. Obviously you don’t have anything better to do than downgrade someone who is no longer with us. God bless all of you that you can let him rest in peace.

      Are you kidding me?? You have got to be the biggest idiot ever. I highly doubt that you are anywhere close to being perfect. Don’t act like you have never done anything thay society wouldn’t accept. If the mom felt safe with it and the daughter was happy with him who gives a flying f***. You are very dis respectful. Get a flipping life and quit saying shit about someone who is no longer here. You should be ashamed. I’m ashamed that there are people like you.

      Sorry to inform but that age doesn’t make him a child molester. That is a person who touches a young child who doesnt know they shoulsnt be touched at her age it would be called rap. And who knows if it was a sexual at that time. Maybe they were friends at first so stfu.

          ^ it said they meet when she was 16 it didn’t say they were in a relationship, read! Now she is 23 (AN ADULT) and she can date whoever she wants! How can you sit here and talk about some one who has passed away, have some respect. He probably kept his personal life private because of people like you wanting to judge when you don’t even know the situation.

        Really you grow up love has no age unless its actually a child . My dad married my 15 year old mother when he was 21 and they were happy 33 long years until she died and he has still never ‘re married . I mean get real back in the ages as soon as a girl hit puberty she was sold off for marriage to the highest bidder be glad we have choices in these ages and we should not be bashed for our choice you are not god so get a life !!!! And maybe the time to state you opinion would have been while the man was alive quite trashy if you ask me !!!!

          I’m not condoning or condemning any of this, however a 6 year age difference is quite different from a 17 year age difference. Especially for a celebrity who can get any girl that he wanted to.

    That is their choice to be together. Large age differences happen ever day in the dating world. Just because she was 16 when they met who knows when she was going to be 17 a month or six months. If the parents consented to the relationship then that is that. It doesn’t mean it was a sexual relationship. They could have been friends first. Who knows because you don’t you weren’t there so shut the f*** up

    Actually the problem with it is she wasn’t legal and he knew it thats stat rape, it would be different if she was atleast legal age when they started dating. Thats just sick, and plus why would your sister marry a 65 year old he’ll be dead in what like 5 years whats the point??? Also your sister was atleast legal age whereas this girl was not thats the difference. Also to the person who said date who you want, so its okay to date a 12 year old at age 30? Your a sick person and need help what if that was your daughter??

    Some of you don’t know what you’re talking about. Regardless of whether you think it’s “gross” or not, the age of consent varies by state and is 16 in MANY states. And all of Canada. And even lower in other countries. If they were having a sexual relationship in half of the U.S. at the time, it would have been perfectly legal.

    I’ve replied to a few of the comments but let me also say this for one the man is dead show some respect cause he was a respectable man whom done good with his fame and wealth. Secondly let me say its was obviously not a child molester situation he had true emotionally connections for this woman for her to still been around for seven years and become his daughters step mother and for her to still be there helping the daughter after the fact goes to further show the extent of their relationship. You cannot help whom you fall in love with and it isn’t your life or wasn’t your sixteen year old daughter so you have no say in anything so why let it bother you and who is to say she wasn’t days from 17 when they met we all know how magazines love to sell stuff it could have very well be a day before but they are gonna go with 16 cause that sounds so much better to sell magazines . Just remember you dont want to be judged for things you do that people dont agree with so dont judge others besides isn’t that the good lords job and I do believe in his book women were 14 off with 30 year old men js

      I’m honestly astonished that nobody is placing blame on her or her parents, just him. She knew exactly who he was and consciously got involved with him. There are laws on the books for this to protect minors and her parents didn’t press charges did they? They were irresponsible to allow this relationship to happen in the first place, it wasn’t Paul Walker’s job to act as her parental figure. The judgment on the internet is amazing, especially considering the man is dead and can’t even defend himself. God, people are stupid.
