The famed actress died from an intracerebral hemorrhage caused by high blood pressure, E! News confirms. An intracerebral hemorrhage is an emergency condition in which a ruptured blood vessel causes bleeding inside the brain, also known as a stroke.
The Singin' in the Rain star was rushed to the hospital on December 28, 2016 after suffering a stroke in her Beverly Hills home. She died shortly after, only one day after her daughter Carrie Fisher succumbed to a heart attack at 60-years-old. In confirming Reynolds' death, son Todd Fisher told E! News, "She went to be with Carrie. In fact, those were the last words she spoke this morning."
