Tanya Roberts Has Died After A Bizarre Premature Death Announcement

My head is spinning with this one…

So, you may have heard that Tanya Roberts died on Sunday but then, yesterday, she was pronounced alive… but now, it has officially been announced that she has died.

What is happening?!

According to TMZ, Tanya Roberts died Monday night at L.A.’s Cedars-Sinai Hospital after a bizarre and strange turn of events that included her domestic partner incorrectly telling her rep she had died the day before.

Her partner, Lance O’Brien, told TMZ that he got a call from one of Tanya’s doctor’s Monday night, just after 9 PM, telling him Tanya had passed.

Now, you might be wondering why he told everyone she had died before she had actually died…

Well, apparently her partner tried explaining his mistake Monday, telling TMZ he had visited her in the hospital Sunday, and she suddenly opened her eyes but then shut them and he saw her fade away.

But wouldn’t she have had a heart monitor or some sort on? Like how did he not know she was still alive?

This story is so strange…

Apparently he said he thought she was dead and left, without speaking to medical staff.

Then he got a phone call Monday from Cedars, informing him Tanya was still alive. Tanya’s rep, who picked Lance up from the hospital, says he told him, “She died in my arms.”

This is just a strange turn of events but nonetheless, it is sad that Tanya has passed. She will certainly be missed and I hope she rests in peace!
