Debbie Reynolds Dead at 84, Passed Away One Day After Daughter Carrie Fisher’s Death
“She missed her daughter [Carrie] and wanted to very much be with her and she had discussed some other things. She had been very strong the last several days; [there was] enormous stress on her, obviously,” the Oscar-nominated actress’ surviving son told Entertainment Tonight. “And this morning, she said those words to me and 15 minutes later she had a stroke and virtually left.”
The Singin’ in the Rain star suffered a medical emergency — currently being identified as possible stroke — while at her son Todd Fisher’s Beverly Hills home, according to TMZ. The paramedics were called to the residence shortly after 1 p.m. and Reynolds was taken to a nearby emergency room.
The 84-year-old was reportedly visiting family a day after Fisher’s death to make funeral arrangements for the late Star Wars legend.
Reynolds is said to be “distraught” ever since her daughter suffered a massive heart attack last week.
Yesterday, she wrote on Facebook, “Thank you to everyone who has embraced the gifts and talents of my beloved and amazing daughter. I am grateful for your thoughts and prayers that are now guiding her to her next stop.”
