Actress Debbie Reynolds Dies at 84, One Day After Daughter Carrie Fisher
Renowned actress Debbie Reynolds died late Wednesday at the age of 84, one day after her daughter Carrie Fisher passed away after suffering heart failure, according to Reynolds' son.
"She's now with Carrie and we're all heartbroken," [Todd] Fisher said from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where his mother was taken by ambulance earlier Wednesday.
He said the stress of his sister's death "was too much" for Reynolds.
The entertainment website TMZ, without naming any sources, said Reynolds may have suffered a possible stroke. It also said she had been at her son Todd’s Beverly Hills home discussing funeral plans for Carrie when a call was made to 911.
Reynolds enjoyed the very heights of show business success and endured the depths of personal tragedy and betrayal. She lost one husband to Elizabeth Taylor and two other husbands plundered her for millions. Fisher, who found lasting fame as Princess Leia in "Star Wars" and struggled for much of her life with drug addiction and mental health problems, died on Tuesday after falling ill on a plane and being hospitalized.
