Just a day after Carrie Fisher died, her mother Debbie Reynolds has reportedly been hospitalized with “a possible stroke.”

According to a report on TMZ, the 84-year-old Ms. Reynolds was rushed to Cedars Sinai Medical Center around 1 p.m. PST from the Beverly Hills home of son Todd Fisher.

She was reportedly at the home, which the Los Angeles Times said was in the 1700 block of Coldwater Canyon Drive, to discuss funeral plans for Ms. Fisher.

TMZ reported, citing “family sources” that Ms. Reynolds, the star of musical films from “Singin in the Rain” to “The Singing Nun,” was taken by ambulance for “a possible stroke.”

Step-daughter Joely Fisher tweeted out a photo of herself and Ms. Reynolds just before 3 p.m. PST with the caption “God speed mama.”

The celebrity-news outlet later reported that her condition at the hospital “listed as ‘fair to serious’.” The Times reported similarly, citing Margaret Stewart, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles City Fire Department.

A “source with knowledge of the case” told the Los Angeles Times that Ms. Reynolds was complaining of breathing problems at the home.

Ms. Reynolds has been “distraught since Carrie’s emergency Friday on a United jet,” during which the “Star Wars” actress suffered a heart attack and never regained consciousness, TMZ reported.
