One insider claimed that most of Salling’s acquaintances thought he was “troubled and tormented” but weren’t aware of how bad his demons were, telling ET 😛 TAGEND

“He had a particularly mysterious surface. I felt like I didn’t wholly know who he was. He enjoyed visiting category in Texas and viewed his trips back home as an escape from L.A. and the Hollywood scene.”

In addition to visiting their own families, the source added that “he would often have friends over to his home in Sunland,[ California] ” before he was arrested in December 29, 2015.

But after federal sleuths saw more than 25,000 likeness and 600 videos depicting child pornography on computers and digit drives belonging to him, Salling supposedly turned away from his loved ones and merely proliferated more distant.

A Salling family source told People:

“In the last few years, we had relatively limited contact. When you’re living against your own morals or what you know to be right, you tend to avoid people who will hold water mirrors.”

Though Salling’s “actual” loved ones were “absolutely shocked” by the detection of his distortions, their own families generator said his lethal mistake was continuing those wizards to himself, sustaining 😛 TAGEND

“The problem doesn’t live in the existence of villains or pain or sex appetites that began to skew as occasion gone on. The intrinsic trouble is that he did not seek help or have someone close enough to him willing to call it out.”

A sliver of good word in this tragedy, nonetheless, has developed for the victims in Salling’s child porn subject who have to litigate to get the money he agreed to pay them.

According to TMZ, Salling set up a corporation in 2009 to obtain his income from the amusement business. As of December 2017, the best interests of the this business was reported to be $1.971. His father is listed as the manager.

That’s a huge rustle of easing for the victims who Salling agreed to pay $50 k each in reparation. They still have to file suit against the late actor’s estate, but at least there’s enough fund to go around.
