E! Online reports that Johnson's good friend and godmother to Ava, Nicky Hilton, along with her mom, Kathy, and boyfriend, David Katzenberg, stopped by Johnson's house after hearing the news of her death. Hilton's sister, Paris, not only took to Twitter to express her condolences, but also spoke to Life & Style about the loss.
"I am devastated to hear this news. I've known Casey since I was a baby," she told the magazine. "She had a big heart and she was a good friend. I feel so sad, I don't want to believe it. My condolences go out to her family and loved ones."
Johnson's father is New York Jets owner Woody Johnson, and her great-grandfather was the co-founder of Johnson & Johnson, the famed maker of everything from baby powder to Q-Tips, Visine, Tylenol and Band-Aids. "The Johnson family is mourning its tragic loss, and asks for privacy during this very difficult time," a statement from the Jets read.
