LOS ANGELES (CNN) — Debbie Reynolds, one of Hollywood’s biggest stars in the 1950s and 1960s, was taken to a Los Angeles hospital on Wednesday, Dec. 28, one day after her daughter Carrie Fisher died, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Reynolds, 84, complained of breathing problems, an unidentified source told The Times. TMZ reported that the actress suffered a possible stroke.
Her son, Todd Fisher, while not confirming his mother had been hospitalized, told CNN that people should “Pray for her.”
The Los Angeles County Fire Department told CNN it responded to a call where Carrie Fisher owns a home, but would not name the female patient it transported to Cedars-Sinai Hospital. The patient was in fair to serious condition, the fire department said.
CNN called the hospital, but an official said patient information cannot be disclosed.
Reynolds. who was born Mary Frances Reynolds, was a bubbly singer, dancer and actress who starred in “Singin’ in the Rain” and “The Unsinkable Molly Brown.”
She was married then famously divorced from singing sensation Eddie Fisher, who left Reynolds for Elizabeth Taylor.
Fisher’s daughter with actress Connie Stevens, Joely Fisher, tweeted Wednesday: “God speed mama.”
Carrie Fisher, whose grit and wit made “Star Wars'” Princess Leia an iconic and beloved figure to millions of moviegoers, was 60 when she died Tuesday, four days after a cardiac event on a flight from London to Los Angeles.
