BOND girl Tanya Roberts has died at 65 – one day after her husband mistakenly announced her death.
It was widely reported on Sunday that the 65-year-old actress had passed away after her rep spoke to a number of media outlets.
It was confirmed on Tuesday that the star has died, TMZ reported, after collapsing at home on Christmas Eve.
Tanya’s husband Lance O’Brien said one of her doctors at Cedars-Sinai Hospital called on Monday evening to break the news.
Lance – who was married to Tanya for 18 years – previously told The Sun that she suffered from an unspecified illness that began with a urinary tract infection and spread to her kidneys and liver.
He insisted the actress did not have Covid.
Tanya’s death comes one day after Lance mistakenly told her rep she had died in a bizarre hospital mix-up.
Lance said an emotional farewell to his wife of nearly two decades on Sunday after she fell ill over Christmas.
He saw that she was “completely passed out” and left the room believing that she was dead.
He then called Tanya’s spokesperson, Mike Pingel, and broke the news to him, who announced that she had passed away.
He sent out an official press release that revealed the star had died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Speaking to The Sun after the mistake, Lance said doctors had told him to “let his wife die” and not keep her on life support.
“Today the doctors told me that it’s best to let her die and to end her life,” he said.
“She’ll never be the same again, the tubes she has in her are very uncomfortable.”
He also gave an update on the Bond star’s condition as she continuing to fight the illness.
“Her kidneys are so far gone, her liver is so far gone, her gall bladder is so far gone,” he said.
“She also has a terrible blood infection. The doctors say it started out with a urinary tract infection,” he went on.
“The doctors say there’s no way she’s going to be the same. She always told me she didn’t want to be an invalid.
“She said if it got to this stage, end it for me. It’s a challenge and a half, I’ve got to tell you.”
