UPDATE: Debbie Reynolds, the mother of the late Carrie Fisher, has passed away from a stroke at the age of 84.

“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.”


Debbie Reynolds has been rushed to the hospital on Wednesday (Dec. 28, 2016) following the death of her daughterCarrie Fisher.

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.”
