The pain of losing her daughter, Carrie Fisher, was too much to bear for Hollywood screen legend Debbie Reynolds. She suffered a massive stroke Wednesday and was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in LA, where she later died. She was 84.
Reynolds died just one day after Carrie Fisher suffered a heart attack on a flight from London to LAX airport in Los Angeles.
Sources tell TMZ Reynolds was planning her daughter’s funeral arrangements at her son Todd Fisher‘s home when she fell ill just after noon Wednesday.
Before she died, Reynolds told her son she missed Carrie.
The Singin’ in the Rain star posted a message to fans on social media, thanking them for their support.
“Thank you to everyone who has embraced the gifts and talents of my beloved and amazing daughter,” Debbie wrote on Facebook. “I am grateful for your thoughts and prayers that are now guiding her to her next stop.”
Before Reynolds died, award-winning songwriter Diane Warren tweeted: “Step the f**k away from Debbie Reynolds 2016. Just. Step. The. F**k. Away”.
Actress Joely Fisher, the daughter of Reynolds’ former husband Eddie Fisher, tweeted “God speed mama,” underneath a photo of herself with Debbie.
