Why doesn't it have it listed here that Kim Nash was seeing AJ Lamas the entire time she was playing Jani for a fool and ruining his life! She was spending weekends away with AJ at the same hotel Jani was found dead at! She was seeing AJ until after Jani's death when his family had to run her off?

Gone but never forgotten! RIP Lane!

RIP Jani Lane! You are missed

LAWomenJun 16, 2013

Does anyone know where Jani Lane is burried so we can pay our repects...

JusticeFeb 4, 2012

Last comment is not truthful. In fact Jani Lane had a complete physical just 10 days before his death, and was in complete perfect physical health!

Jani Lane was in bad health at the end. At his worst, he still had those gorgeous eyes and a voice that put boys half his age to shame!

"Heaven isn't too far away" RIP Jani you will be missed! You will rock with the angels in heaven!

wildheartedAug 12, 2011

AnnetteAug 12, 2011

R.I.P. Janie Lane. You certainly rocked my teen years. May you find comfort in heaven.

bethMay 10, 2011

So does anyone know the name of Jani"s new girlfriend? He is living with her and has left Kim as of March 2010.

AprilSep 8, 2010

I hope Jani is doing well, he hasn`t looked too good in the last 2 years. He ended up with such a dog!
