Barely three days to the end of the year, another tragedy has hit the entertainment scene – just a day after a tragedy the world is still trying to recover from.

U.S. actress, Debbie Reynolds, who is the mother of the late Carrie Fisher who died on Tuesday, is the latest victim of the cold hands of death. She died on Wednesday.

Debbie Reynolds who died aged 84 had a stroke and was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital on Wednesday where she died, according to U.S. media.

The Hollywood legend is best known for her role in the 1952 musical Singin’ in the Rain, opposite Gene Kelly.

Announcing her death, her son, Todd Fisher, told AP news agency: “She’s now with Carrie and we’re all heartbroken.”

The stress of his sister’s death, he added, had been “too much” for their mother.

Celebrity news site TMZ reports that Reynolds cracked while discussing plans for Carrie’s funeral with her son, telling him: “I miss her so much; I want to be with Carrie”.
