A mystery man seen with Tara Palmer Tomkinson in the weeks before her death may have been a drug dealer, her friends have revealed.
The bar staff at her local in Earl's Court, south west London, said the older man may have been her boyfriend, but friends have suggested he was a dealer.
A friend told the Sun: 'In the final months, she barely left her flat and had never mentioned a boyfriend.
Tara was found dead in her flat on Wednesday. She is pictured left, with her close friend Ivan Massow at Annabel Goldsmith's party in in 2014, and right in November,when she revealed she was being treated for a tumour
Friends have now revealed fears she was with a drug dealer, not a new boyfriend, when she was spotted with a mystery man in her local pub
'The fact she was only seen with this guy in pubs or when he visited her flat at odd hours makes me fear he may have been helping her get drugs again.'
It comes as it was revealed Tara said therapy was not enough to keep her clean, and she wanted drugs 'every day'.
In one of her last interviews, she told journalist Rob McGibbon she had put her family through a lot but wanted to make them proud.
A family death notice in the Telegraph revealed the socialite and It Girl died 'peacefully' in her sleep.
