Aurelie Wynn says Salling was "lonely" at his "quiet" home in Sunland, CA in the months leading up to his death.
The shamed actor was trying to recover in therapy for his mental illness as his child porn sentencing neared, as Radar previously reported exclusively.
Pals said he relapsed in his battle with depression just two weeks before his shocking suicide.
Salling recently pleaded guilty to child porn charges in December 2017 and was expected back in court March 7 for sentencing. But, on January 30, the LAPD received a missing person report on the Glee star. Six hours later — around 8:50 AM — police discovered his body at an isolated spot in the Angeles National Forest.
Aurelie says just days before his passing, following his August suicide attempt, she thought about going to visit him to see how he was doing.
"I heard he went back to Texas for a while to be with his family. I don’t know why he came back. It’s really quiet and lonely up there in Sunland. His roommate wasn't really his roommate, he lived in a guest house," she said. "I thought, ‘I know where he lives, he’s probably there by himself.'"
But by that time it was too late and the disgraced actor had already took his own life.
"I don’t understand where it all went wrong. I cried all day,” she said, but noted: "“I saw this coming."
