Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell was Paul Walker’s girlfriend for 7 years. The pair started dating in 2006 when she was only 16 years old while he was 33. Unfortunately, the untimely death of the “Fast and Furious” actor brought an end to their relationship in 2013.
Even though Jasmine who was only a college student at the time Walker passed away has since settled for a private life, a lot of people are still interested in the romance they shared as well as what she’s up to. Here’s all to know.
Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell and Paul Walker Dated For 7 Years
Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell was the longtime girlfriend of Paul Walker. While it is hard to tell how they met and fell in love, we garnered that their relationship started sometime in 2006. At the time, Jasmine was only 16 years old while the actor was 33.
Despite the difference in their age, Jasmine and her then-boyfriend maintained their relationship that lasted for 7 years. During this time, the California native wasn’t only supportive of Walker’s career and philanthropic works but also involved in his daughter’s life as a stepmother.
Unfortunately, the sad demise of Paul Walker on November 30, 2013, brought an end to their almost a decade romance. From the reports, The “Fast and Furious” actor and his friend Rogers Rodas were involved in a car crash in Santa Clarita, California. This happened a few hours after the toy drive event for his disaster relief charity which he attended with Jasmine.
The Age Difference Between the Former Lovers Was a Major Problem
As hinted earlier, Jasmine was only 16 when she started dating the then 33 years old actor, Paul Walker and the 17 years gap between them garnered a lot of controversies. Given that the age of consent in California is 18, Jasmine was considered a minor at the time.
While the relationship between the two was relatively private, it wasn’t free from negative trolls. However, Jasmine was not the first minor to be linked to the actor.
Paul Walker had previously dated Aubrianna Atwell, a model who was also 16 years old when they started dating. They maintained their off-and-on relationship for several years until they finally parted ways.
Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell Struggled With Greif After the Death of Paul Walker
The death of Paul Walker took a toll on his then-girlfriend Jasmine who reportedly collapsed on hearing the news from Jim Torp. However, that wasn’t the end of it. She struggled with the pain of his loss for a long time and even at his burial ceremony, she was visibly broken.
Months later, her father, Casey Gosnell revealed that she had to undergo grief counseling to deal with Walker’s death. According to him, Jasmine was still terribly wounded by Paul’s passing and will be for a long time. He also added that she might be ready to talk about her grief someday.
However, even after 5 years of his passing, it seems that Jasmine had not recovered. She wasn’t part of the “I Am Paul Walker” documentary released about the late actor in 2018. This was strange since most of his family members and close friends had a lot to say about the life of the actor.
Many quarters report that she was probably still dealing with grief at the time. However, it is also possible that she was left out as a way to respect the late Walker who had a penchant for privacy.
What is Paul Walker’s Ex-Girlfriend Up To at the Moment?
Jasmine disappeared from the spotlight following the loss of her ex-boyfriend, Paul Walker, and embraced private life.
However, speculations made waves that she got engaged to Travis Turpin but information about their love life is not known to the public. Since the news of their engagement, no further information has been established. As such, it is difficult to tell if they really walked down the aisle or opted for a very private wedding.
