Betty White, one of Hollywood’s most beloved actresses, comedians, and pop culture icons, has died at the age of 99.

Law enforcement informed TMZ early Friday morning that Betty White had died in her home on New Year’s Eve. 

Best known for her work in Golden Girls, White has won 5 Primetime Emmy Awards, Screen Actors Guild Awards, American Comedy Awards and even a Grammy in 2012, all throughout the course of her career.

“Betty had the longest running career for any woman in TV prior to her death -- starring in multiple shows over the past 8 decades, starting way back in 1939.”

While the cause of death is still not known at the time of writing this article, reports say that Betty White had been laying low throughout the course of the Covid-19 pandemic by spending her days at home reading, watching television and doing crossword puzzles.

Betty White would have celebrated her 100th birthday on January 17th, 2022.

Our thoughts and prayers are with her family, friends, and the many, many Betty White fans across the world.
