Richardson also said that Lambert was working behind the camera and was an amateur songwriter but he was not satisfied with his work so he was having drugs and alcohol frequently which she thinks caused his death.
However, Richardson also added, "It's a shame that such a talented human being would do this with his life," "He had all the opportunities in the world and we just can't understand it. He was talking so sweet to me on the phone that morning. But you never can tell what's in their mind."
