Reynolds was rushed to a hospital just after 1 pm local time after having symptoms of a stroke. She was at the Beverly Hills home of her son, Todd, planning Carrie’s funeral.
The actress rose to fame for her role in “Singin’ in the Rain.” She also starred in “Tammy and the Bachelor” and “The Unsinkable Molly Brown,” for which she earned an Oscar nomination.
Carrie Fisher’s book, “Postcards from the Edge,” detailed the relationship between her and Reynolds. The semi-autobiographical book was later made into a movie that starred Meryl Streep and Shirley MacLaine.
Reynolds had children Todd and Carrie with singer and former husband Eddie Fisher. The two divorced in 1959.
Reynolds’ son Todd Fisher stated, “She’s with Carrie.”
