This is bizarre. Actress Tanya Roberts’ publicist and partner now say she is still alive after announcing her death on Sunday.
On Monday after the news came out that the Bond girl had died, her rep Mike Pingel then made the stunning admission that he had been mistaken.
The rep said Roberts’ longtime partner, Lance O’Brien, had informed him of her passing at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
She’d been hospitalized there since Christmas Eve, when she collapsed at home after walking her dog.
It’s unclear how the mistake occurred.
Inside Edition on Monday (Jan. 4) said one of its reporters was actually interviewing her partner O’Brien when he appeared to get a phone call saying the actress was alive.
“Now, you are telling me she’s alive?” O’Brien said before breaking down in tears.
“The hospital is telling me she is alive. They are calling me from the ICU team,” O’Brien said.
While the star did not have COVID-19, she was placed on a ventilator because she was struggling to breathe. Roberts remains in ICU but the good news is she's alive.
