Tila Tequila says she isn't surprised that pals of her late fiance Casey Johnson are now taking shots at her.

It is just one of the at least 75 posts she has written since the Johnson and Johnson heiress was found dead at the age of 30 on Jan. 4 (a cause of death has not been determined).

Tila (real name: Tila Nguyen) also Twittered: "Well I Can't Bring Her Back Now But At Least I know the Love Between us WAS REAL & They CAN NEVER TAKE THAT AWAY!"

As of late, Johnson's family had severed ties with their daughter due to her increasingly erratic behavior, fueled by drugs and alcohol abuse.

Johnson's dad, New York Jets owner Woody Johnson, reportedly lost his brother Keith to a drug overdose in 1975. Fearing the same thing would happen to his daughter, he and his ex-wife, Sale, tried some tough love and cut off their daughter's money, according to the New York Daily News.

The Daily News reported that the family also worried that Johnson "had fallen under the spell" of Tila and "were shocked" when she announced her engagement to Tila in an online video while clad in bras and panties.

Johnson's longtime girlfriend Courtenay Semel is among those who have spoken out against Tila, believing the reality star was using Johnson for attention.

On Wednesday, things heated up when Johnson's pals Nicky Hilton (godmother to Casey's adopted daughter, Ava, 3) and Bijou Phillips went to Tila's L.A. home to retrieve dogs belonging to Johnson.

A verbal dispute ensued; two LAPD squad cars were called.

Tila – who said she has been unable to sleep in recent days – later lashed out at them on Twitter, calling Hilton and Phillips "heartless." She also claimed that they were going to put Johnson's dogs "to sleep."
