Debbie Reynolds has died as a result of a stroke, aged 84, just one day after her daughter, Carrie Fisher.
Her son Todd Fisher told Variety, “She wanted to be with Carrie.”
It is understood that the 84-year-old Singin’ In The Rain actress was at her son’s Los Angeles home on Wednesday, December 28 organising plans for Carrie’s funeral when an emergency 911 call was made at approximately 1 pm local time.
The mother-of-two was transported to the nearby Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in a fair to serious condition.
Reynolds’ health has reportedly been in decline for some time. In November 2015 the Unsinkable Molly Brown star was forced to miss a dinner at which she was due to receive an honorary Oscar due to “an unexpectedly long recovery from recent surgery”.
Carrie Fisher died on Tuesday, December 27 after suffering a massive heart attack days earlier.
Following Fisher’s death, Reynolds 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.”
