TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – “Golden Girls” star Betty White suffered a stroke days before her death, according to multiple reports.

A death certificate obtained by TMZ lists White’s cause of death as a stroke, commonly known as a stroke. White died on December 31 at the age of 99.

In a stroke, a lack of blood flow to the brain damages part of the organ. Blood clots and broken blood vessels in the brain often contribute to a stroke.

White’s death certificate says she suffered a stroke six days before her death. According to TMZ, White was alert and consistent after the stroke, and she passed away peacefully in her sleep at home.

An anonymous source told People: “It was a mild stroke. She died peacefully in her sleep.

Jeff Witjas, the actress’s friend and agent, had previously spoken out against social media claims that White died of side effects from the COVID-19 vaccine booster she received on December 28.

“People say his death was linked to receiving a recall three days earlier, but that’s not true,” Witjas told People. “She died of natural causes. Her death shouldn’t be politicized – it’s not the life she lived.
