Actress Lisa Robin Kelly, popularly known for playing Laurie Forman in comedy series That 70s Show’, has died at the age of 43.
Fox News reports that the actress died in a rehab facility, and her cause of death is still unknown.
“Unfortunately Lisa Robin Kelly passed away last evening. Lisa had voluntarily checked herself into a treatment facility early this week where she was battling the addiction problems that have plagued her these past few years,” her manager Craig Wycoff said. “I spoke to her on Monday and she was hopeful and confident, looking forward to putting this part of her life behind her. Last night she lost the battle.”
Danny Masterson, who starred as Steven Hyde on “That ’70′s Show,” tweeted after news broke of Kelly’s death Wednesday.
“Terrible,awful news. Brilliant on 70s…. See u next time LRK,kisses,” he said.
Since Kelly’s role on “That ’70s Show” wrapped, she was often in the news for her legal troubles. Most recently on June 23, the actress was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving.
It was not her first brush with the law. Kelly and her husband Robert Joseph Gilliam were arrested last November in connection to a disturbance at their home in the Charlotte, N.C., suburb of Mooresville.
