“That ’70s Show” star Lisa Robin Kelly died Wednesday night at age 43, according to TMZ.

The actress, who played Topher Grace’s older sister on the hit Fox sitcom, reportedly died at a California rehab facility, which she voluntarily checked into earlier this week. Kelly was reportedly battling an ongoing alcohol addiction, but fell off the wagon after a dispute with her estranged husband Robert Gilliam.

“She had been fighting demons for a while and finally lost her battle,” Kelly’s agent told TMZ.

According to the report, Kelly entered rehab on Monday, but went into cardiac arrest on Wednesday night. First responders allegedly found Kelly with needle marks in both her arms, but the actress’ current boyfriend claims the spots were from attempts to draw blood during a hospital visit the previous Sunday.

Kelly’s recent problems with alcohol, as well as her run-ins with the law, have been well documented. The actress has been arrested for DUI multiple times in the last few years. She was also arrested for domestic violence in March 2012, which resulted in the mugshot pictured above.
