Unfortunately, another Hollywood icon passed away. Debbie’s death comes just a day after her daughter, Carrie Fisher, passed away. Before passing, Debbie was rushed to the hospital after having a medical emergency, which was most likely a stroke, while she was at her son’s home in Beverly Hills.
Her son, Todd Fisher, was the first person to confirm her death. Debbie was in a lot of pain after her daughter passed, and Todd notes that the stress of this tragic event was too much for her to handle.
According to Fisher, Debbie was at his house making funeral arrangements for Carrie when she suffered what is believed to be a stroke. According to Todd, Reynolds’ last words before the stroke were “I miss her so much. I want to be with Carrie.”
Prior to her passing, Todd told ABC News “My mother is very strong right now, and Billie Lourd, Carrie’s daughter, is very strong. We are all together now at this point.” However, it looks like Reynolds wasn’t strong enough to live in a world without her daughter. After she died, he once again spoke with ABC to say that “The only good thing about this is that my mom wanted to be with my sister.”
Debbie is a true Hollywood legend, having stared in movies such as Singin’ in the Rain, The Catered Affair, Bundle of Joy, The Affairs of Dobie Gills, The Unsinkable Molly Brown, and How the West Has Won. She also had her own television show called The Debbie Reynolds Show.
