Songwriter Dedicates Golden Globe To Slain Publicist
BEVERLY HILLS (AP) — Publicist Ronni Chasen, whose brazen killing stunned the entertainment industry, was remembered by veteran songwriter Diane Warren, who dedicated her Golden Globe for best original motion picture song to her.
Chasen was shot to death in November as she drove home from a premiere and party for “Burlesque.”
Warren’s winning song, “You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me,” was featured in the film, which Chasen had been talking up for awards hours before she died.
“I want to dedicate this to somebody a lot of you knew and all of us loved, Ronni Chasen,” Warren said on stage Sunday night.
It was the songwriter’s first Golden Globe.
Police believe Chasen was killed as part of a bungled robbery attempt when she stopped her luxury car at a Beverly Hills intersection.
