Lisa Robin Kelly, famous for playing Eric Foreman’s sister on That 70s Show, has passed away at the age of 43. She died Wednesday night in her sleep at a rehab facility in California. Apparently, Lisa checked herself into rehab last week after suffering from extreme addiction to alcohol. Her agent said that she’d been battling her demons for a while and everything just became too much for her body to handle.
TMZ reports on the situation: We spoke with Kelly’s agent who tells us the actress had just voluntarily checked herself in for treatment for an alcohol problem this past week … and was determined to clean herself up. The agent tells us, “She had been fighting demons for a while and finally lost her battle.”
Sources tell us Lisa had been in and out of rehab centers hoping to kick her alcohol problem … and most recently fell off the wagon after a huge dispute with her estranged husband Robert Gilliam. “
Apparently, she was abused by her estranged husband last May after he wanted money; he was convicted of domestic battery and was ordered to spend time in jail. Lisa’s new boyfriend brought her into the rehab facility, and he blames her relapse on the unfortunate incident she experienced with her boyfriend. She suffered from cardiac arrest, which she was unable to recover from.
