However, Christina wasn’t quite alone when it came to looking after Hannah and Ethan. In fact, a family friend, James DiMaggio, lived just an hour away. Apparently, he was close to both Christina and Brett, and sometimes helped out with occasional chores such as driving Hannah to sporting engagements.
In fact, Hannah and James got on so well that they had recently taken a trip together, visiting Hollywood. On her Twitter account, Hannah had even posted a snap of herself taken by James. However, things might not have been quite as innocent as they seemed.
According to Hannah’s friends, the teenager was beginning to find herself uncomfortable in James’ presence. Apparently, he had confessed romantic feelings towards her in the past. However, Hannah continued to write to him for advice on her troubled relationship with her mother.
