“Singin’ in the Rain” star was 84
Debbie Reynolds died on Wednesday at the age of 84, just one day after the death of her daughter, “Star Wars” heroine Carrie Fisher, TheWrap has confirmed.
“She’s with Carrie,” Reynolds’ son Todd Fisher said in a statement, referring to his sister, who died Tuesday morning.
The Oscar-nominated actress was hospitalized after reportedly suffering a possible stroke on Wednesday. She was rushed to a hospital at around 1 p.m. PT.
Shortly after news of her daughter’s death was announced, Reynolds shared a message on Facebook thanking fans for their support. “Thank you to everyone who has embraced the gifts and talents of my beloved and amazing daughter,” she wrote. “I am grateful for your thoughts and prayers that are now guiding her to her next stop. Love Carrie’s Mother.”
