Tila Tequila says she grieves over fiancé Casey Johnson online because she doesn’t have any friends or family to turn to.

"Why do I tweet so much? Even BEFORE Casey passed away? BECAUSE I HAVE NO FRIENDS! THERE! THE TRUTH COMES OUT! Just pray 4 her please!" she posted on her Twitter account over the weekend, The Huffington Post reported.

"PPL say I need 2 get off twitter & grieve with friends & family...WHERE? I DONT HAVE ANY! Casey was my only family & my Dogs! Worst day ever," she added. 

Tequila has sent out at least 160 tweets since Johnson & Johnson heiress Casey Johnson’s Jan. 4 death, not counting deleted posts where she’s lashed out at “haters,” Usmagazine.com reports.

Her targets have included Johnson pals Nicky Hilton and Bijou Phillips, so-called “mean girls” who retrieved Johnson’s two dogs after her death from Tequila’s care.

Tequila told her followers the dogs were euthanized, a claim Hilton denies.

Tequila has also criticized gossip blogger Perez Hilton and taunted Johnson’s family for opposing her now-cancelled appearance on “Larry King Live.”

Pals of the late Johnson & Johnson heiress have blasted Tequila, in turn, for acting more like a self-promoter than a grieving widow.

"The thing I find the most sickening is that the media is giving [her] the one thing she craves: attention. Tila, you knew her for a week," Courtenay Semel, Johnson’s ex told People magazine last week.

Tequila, a former MTV reality star and musician, originally catapulted to fame, in part, on the strength of her social networking skills. After learning of Johnson’s death, she indicated that she planned to retreat from the public eye to grieve.

"Everyone please pray 4 my Wifey Casey Johnson. She has passed away," Tila wrote. "Thank u for all ur love and support but I will be offline to be w family."
