TANYA Roberts — the Bond girl and That ‘70s Show actress who was mistakenly reported dead on Sunday — has in fact died.
“With a heavy heart I can confirm the death of Tanya Roberts (age 65) last night on Jan. 4, 2021 around 9:30 p.m. PT at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles,” her publicist, Mike Pingel, of Rainbow PR said in a statement on Tuesday. “Her 18-year domestic partner Lance O’Brien received the phone call from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center last night at their home confirming her passing.”
Pingel said Roberts — who was hospitalized on Dec. 24 after she collapsed at her home — died “from a urinary tract infection which spread to her kidney, gallbladder, liver and then blood stream.”
O’Brien was called to the hospital on Tuesday to pick up Roberts’s personal effects.
In lieu of flowers, her rep said the animal rights activist would appreciate donations in her name to the ASPCA.
An online memorial for Roberts will be planned, but for now, the family asks for privacy as they mourn her death.
