Kirstie Alley's LONELY final days revealed: Actress had become a recluse, was letting 'everything upset her’
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Kirstie Alley’s tragic death from a secretly fought cancer battle has come as a major shock to many. Alley, 71, was known for her role in ‘Cheers’, and created buzz for her relationship with John Travolta. However, despite all her achievements and her well-known jovial nature, it would seem that her last days were bleak and that she was nothing like she used to be.
A report by RadarOnline has said that the actress had taken to arguing about some of the most pressing to the most trivial of things like events of the world, or just to find out who had eaten the last cupcake. A source had revealed that the former actress had slowly begun to ‘let everything upset her’ and that she was ‘making calls at all hours to complain about the people who wronged her,’ some of whom were just imaginary figures in her head.
“She’s constantly bent out of shape, letting everything upset her, and making calls at all hours to complain about the people who’ve wronged her, real or imagined,” said the insider. Towards the end, the otherwise vivacious actress had taken to becoming a bit of a recluse as well. “She has a housekeeper and a gardener who she communicates with- but other than that she doesn’t see much of anyone anymore.”
“The fear is she’s having a midlife meltdown brought on by loneliness and seclusion.” The source added Kirstie “had a group of young hangers-on who would visit her, but even they’ve drifted away because of her behavior changes.”
Alley’s death was announced on Twitter through a joint statement by her children, William True and Lillie Price. Their statement read, “We are sad to inform you that our incredible, fierce and loving mother has passed away after a battle with cancer, only recently discovered. She was surrounded by her closest family and fought with great strength, leaving us with a certainty of her never-ending joy of living and whatever adventures lie ahead. As iconic as she was on screen, she was an even more amazing mother and grandmother. We are grateful to the incredible team of doctors and nurses at the Moffitt Cancer Center for their care.”
The statement went on to read as such, “Our mother's zest and passion for life, her children, grandchildren, and her many animals, not to mention her eternal joy of creating, were unparalleled and leave us inspired to live life to the fullest just as she did.”
