Here's what the card said.
Last week, Paula Abdul got flowers with a note signed, "Love, J.T." and the message, "Hope you're doing great. Here's my new cell number." Thinking they had come from her restaurateur boyfriend J.T. Torregiani, Abdul called him asking why he had changed his number, a source close to Abdul tells PEOPLE. When he said he hadn't, Abdul knew immediately who really sent them: ex-American Idol contestant Paula Goodspeed, according to the source. She was found dead this week outside Abdul's home.
Abdul had received more than 100 letters, numerous phone calls and uninvited visits from Goodspeed, the source says. "The flower thing was really scary -- Paula [Abdul] really couldn't handle that. She was terrified," says the source.
Also, PEOPLE has learned, Goodspeed had changed her first name from Sandra to Paula.
