Debbie Reynolds, the Oscar-nominated singer-actress who was the mother of late actress Carrie Fisher, has died at Cedars-Sinai hospital. She was 84.
“She wanted to be with Carrie,” her son Todd Fisher told Variety.
She was taken to the hospital from Todd Fisher’s Beverly Hills house Wednesday after a suspected stroke, the day after her daughter Carrie Fisher died.
A family spokesman was not available for comment on Wednesday evening.
Reynolds is understood to have been in a ‘fair to serious’ condition when she was hospitalized at around 1pm.
Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd emerged for the first time on Wednesday minutes before her grandmother’s apparent stroke.
The 24-year-old, who is also an actress, was seen leaving her Santa Monica home with rumored boyfriend Taylor Lautner.
Hours after her daughter’s death on Tuesday, Reynolds thanked fans for their support and condolences.
‘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. Love Carries Mother,’ she said on Facebook.
