Former Bachelor star Gia Allemand shockingly took her own life last month and for the first time her mother has opened up about what is was like to be on the other end of the phonewhen her daughter hanged herself.

In an emotional interview with Dr. Phil, Allemand's mom Donna Micheletti cried while talking about the last time she spoke to her daughter.

"Because I'm the closest person in the world to her and she didn't want to be alone when she left this world," Micheletti said of why she thought Allemand called her while taking her life.

"So she wanted Mommy to be there, I guess."

As previously reported, Allemand was rushed to the hospital in mid-August until the next day when her family took her off life support due to brain and organ failure.

It was later revealed that Allemand hanged herself in her New Orleans home while on the phone with her mother and her boyfriend, NBA player Ryan Anderson, found her.

Friends close to Allemand maintain that there were no red flags pointing to suicide — but another pal told the 29-year-old had been upset in the days leading up to the end of her life because she and Anderson were having relationship problems and she was frustrated that he hadn't proposed to her yet.

"It destroys me, but if it made her feel better…" Micheletti said through tears. "Then that's just fine…I don't mind dealing with this."

The full interview with Micheletti airs September 10 on Dr. Phil.
