Update 5:40PM: We have received confirmation that Debbie Reynolds has passed away just hours after she suffered from a stroke while at her son’s home. She was reportedly distraught since learning of her daughter Carrie Fisher’s initial cardiac arrest. Sources close to the family tell PopWrapped, “It was just too much for Debbie to handle … she didn’t want to be without her daughter,” telling her son hours before the stroke that killed her, “I miss her so much, I want to be with Carrie.” Debbie is survived by her son Todd, who told the media, “She’s with Carrie now.”
In a cruel twist of fate, Debbie Reynolds, mother of Star Wars actress, Carrie Fisher, has been rushed to the hospital for a “possible stroke,” and sources close to the situation tell PopWrapped that it’s “not looking good,” and “back-to-back funerals are expected.”
She was with her son Todd Fisher at his Beverly Hills home, discussing funeral arrangements for her daughter, when the episode occurred, prompting a family member to call to 911. Reynolds has been “extremely upset” since Fisher suffered a massive cardiac arrest on a flight home from an international promotional tour. We are told Reynolds’ medical emergency was “sudden, without warning, and very apparent.” Sources have also revealed to us that Reynolds was unconscious when she was rushed by ambulance to a local emergency room.
Fisher died yesterday after suffering another cardiac arrest at a California hospital. Neither Fisher nor Reynolds ever regained consciousness after their initial medical emergencies. Our thoughts go out to the families, friends and fans of both Reynolds and Fisher.
