Todd Fisher, Carrie Fisher's brother, confirmed his mother's death to Variety and told the magazine: "She wanted to be with Carrie".

Carrie Fisher died of sleep apnoea and other factors, the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office said.

Billie Lourd, daughter of the late Carrie Fisher and granddaughter of the late Debbie Reynolds has broken her silence following the sudden death of her family members. But, on December 27, the actress passed away which caused some confusion and doubt for her family. But he said that his sister's mental health professionals were simply doing their job, and her medications played a vital role in managing her bi-polar disorder, which she was diagnosed with at the age of 24.

"We're not enlightened. There's nothing about this that is enlightening.I would tell you, from my perspective that there's certainly no news that Carrie did drugs".

According to the press release, Fisher's cardiac arrest was caused by multiple drug intake, with "significance not ascertained". Paramedics removed her from the flight and rushed her to a nearby hospital, where she was treated for a heart attack. "They contained me", she said. Todd addressed this as well and shared that the doctors are not to be blamed as they did their best. "Can you really blame them?" he said.

'Without her drugs, maybe she would have left long ago'. She made her film debut as a teenager in 1975 comedy "Shampoo", two years before her breakthrough in the first "Star Wars" movie. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article.
