Debbie Reynolds, the vivacious actress, dancer and pop star who wowed ’em in the musicals Singin’ in the Rain and The Unsinkable Molly Brown, died Wednesday, just one day after her daughter, Carrie Fisher, passed away.
Debbie Reynolds has died after being rushed to the hospital Wednesday, her son told The Associated Press. She was 84.
Reynolds lost her daughter, Carrie Fisher, on Tuesday. Fisher died at a Los Angeles hospital days after suffering a heart attack on a plane last week. She was 60.
Three generations of women posed at the SAG Awards together in 2015: Billie Lourd, Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher.
"She's now with Carrie and we're all heartbroken," Reynolds' son, Todd Fisher, said from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where his mother was taken by ambulance earlier Wednesday.
He said the stress of his sister's death "was too much" for Reynolds. Earlier in the day, TMZ and the Los Angeles Times said she suffered a medical emergency.
TMZ said Wednesday morning Reynolds was at Fisher's home in Beverly Hills planning her daughter's funeral and may have suffered a stroke. The outlet reported Reynolds had been distraught since Fisher's health declined last Friday.
Years earlier, Reynolds suffered heartbreak of another kind when her husband and Carrie's father, pop singer Eddie Fisher, left her to be with actress Elizabeth Taylor.
