Debbie Reynolds, a leading lady in Hollywood musicals and comedies in the 1950s and 1960s, including "Singin' in the Rain," has died just one day after the death of her daughter, actress Carrie Fisher, her son says.
Reynolds, 84, an Oscar-nominated singer-actress, was rushed to Cedars-Sinai hospital earlier on Wednesday and died hours later.
"It's true, she's with Carrie," her son, Todd Fisher, told Reuters, adding that shortly before suffering a stroke Reynolds had said she missed her daughter and wanted to be with her.
"She left very shortly after that and those were the last words she spoke," Todd Fisher said.
After the news of Reynolds' death, numerous people took to social media and wrote that "she died of a broken heart."
One of the most enduring and endearing Hollywood stars of her time, Reynolds received a best actress Academy Award nomination for the 1964 musical "The Unsinkable Molly Brown."
