Tila Tequila is crying over not having been allowed to attend the burial of Casey Johnson, and is lashing out at her family.

Casey's family wanted a very small private funeral but Tila, who was engaged to the Johnson & Johnson heiress, wasn't invited.

Tila exclusively told on Sunday: "Yes her funeral is today and I can't even see my wife for the last time to say goodbye to her and see her.  It's breaking my heart... I'm crying so bad, they are horrible, mean people. Sure, one day I can visit her grave but I will never ever get to see her face again to say goodbye and kiss her before they bury her. I can't talk about this now it's making me cry."

On Wednesday, reps for the family said Casey would be buried later in the week, but declined to provide the location or any other details. Family friends told that Casey was buried Sunday.

Casey was found dead in her rented Los Angeles home January 4, and was buried in a small, private ceremony in New Jersey.

Casey's close friend Nicky Hilton attended the memorial hosted by Casey's devastated dad, New York Jets owner Robert Johnson.

Johnson, who recently became engaged to Tila, had suffered from diabetes since she was a child and had battled drug problems in the past, though no cause of death has been determined.

Some reports quoted an unnamed family spokesperson denying the burial on Sunday, but reps for the family refused to comment about the burial to, and did not want to be named.

Casey was diabetic and her family asked that anyone wishing to honor her make donations in her memory to the Casey Johnson Memorial at the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
