Betty White suffered a stroke 6 days before she passed away, according to her death certificate which was obtained by TMZ.
The beloved actress who starred in “The Golden Girls” passed away last month just weeks before her 100th birthday.
White’s cause of death is listed as a “cerebrovascular accident,” which is the medical term for a stroke.
Strokes can be caused by blood clots.
Betty’s cause of death is listed as a cerebrovascular accident, according to her death certificate, which is a loss of blood flow to part of the brain, resulting in brain tissue damage.
It’s interesting … the certificate, obtained by TMZ, says Betty suffered the stroke 6 days before her death.
Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ … Betty was alert and coherent after the stroke, and she died peacefully in her sleep at home.
A cerebrovascular accident can be caused by blood clots or broken blood vessels in the brain.
White’s agent also denied rumors claiming the 99-year-old actress had just received a Covid booster shot a few days before her death.
“People are saying her death was related to getting a booster shot three days earlier, but that is not true. She died of natural causes,” he told the magazine. “Her death should not be politicized — that is not the life she lived.”
Witjas did not comment on whether Betty White received the Covid booster at all.
