Lisa Robin Kelly, the woman who played the sexy teenage sister of Eric, the main character on “That 70s Show,” died Thursday night at the age of 43 in the rehab center she just entered for addiction-related treatments.

Her actual cause of death is not yet known.

“Unfortunately, Lisa Robin Kelly passed away last evening,” her agent, Craig Wyckoff said, in a statement reported by USA Today. “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. 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.”

Ms. Kelly played the character Laurie Forman, the older sister of Eric Forman, on the hit show that aired from 1998-2006.

Fox News reported she has battled alcoholism for years. She was arrested on June 23 for suspicions of driving while drunk, USA Today reported.
