Verne Troyer’s sex tape ex worries Mini-Me star is going to hell

Verne Troyer’s ex girlfriend Ranae Shepherd has spoken of her fears he won’t get into heaven because he ‘didn’t understand’ the power of his deathbed baptism.

Ranae, whose surname was Shrider when she dated the Hollywood actor in 2008, revealed she bombarded Verne with "tons" of books, letters and even a highlighted Bible in the weeks before his shock death.

She was concerned for his mortal soul and worried he would be lost "in eternity" forever.

The former actress, who found Jesus after making a sex tape with and splitting from Verne, wrote on her Facebook page about her quandaries.


"Differences aside my heart is completely broken today," she wrote.

"A close friend let me know that Verne has died, his public statement that I just saw states he was baptised recently. Baptism does not get you to heaven so my prayer is he understood salvation and was not just baptised."

She went on: "With permission from my husband I have sent multiple letters and tons of books and a highlighted Bible explaining salvation. My prayer is he read it. I forgave him in my heart and in my letters I apologised and forgave him and can only pray he read them and knew Jesus.

"It is so important to have true forgiveness for someone and to witness to them. I witnessed multiple times and a month ago sent another letter because my heart was burdened for him.

"Two weeks after I mailed the letter he went to the hospital, now he is in eternity somewhere. My heart is broken."

Ranae added: "Please pray for his family and if they don’t know Christ they will come to know him through this. Death is a sad thing when you are unsure about someone’s salvation that is why witnessing to people is crucial."

The former actress, who now runs a non-profit organisation with her husband, previously boasted about Verne’s prowess in the bedroom.

"He wasn’t short of sexy skills and tried his hardest to make up in technique what he lacked in size," she told the Sunday Mirror in 2008.

But she claimed then she only had sex with him a handful of times, and would think "charity work" when they got down to business.

Ranae also opened up about Verne’s drinking, saying his excessive boozing would make him "mean and aggressive".

"Being with him was horrible. It was like being with a child," she went on, claiming he would order her around "like a slave" and make him read out his fan mail while he googled himself.

"I was like his assistant but he never paid me. Before I left the house I would have to open the top of every drink bottle as Verne’s wrists are too weak," she added at the time.


"After that I would buy his groceries and carry them home and cook dinner, although most days all Verne would eat would be a blueberry muffin and then he’d be full. And not once did I get a thank-you."

Meanwhile, Verne’s cause of death could be confirmed this week after his postmortem was completed – but further tests will be needed because of why he was in hospital three weeks before his death.

"Verne Troyer was admitted into the hospital with a high level of alcohol in his system, where he passed out and became unconscious and he passed away," the Los Angeles Coroner’s Office told Us Weekly.

"His body was turned over to the Coroner office, they did an autopsy on Verne and determined they needed additional testing, which is why the case has been deferred pending toxicology."
