Betty White “Died Of Natural Causes”, Agent Denies Covid Related Rumors


Betty White’s cause of death has been revealed. The award-winning TV legend died on Friday (Dec.31) at the age of 99. Her rep has now confirmed the star died of “natural causes”. Betty White’s agent and close friend Jeff Witjas released a statement saying,

“Betty died peacefully in her sleep at her home.”

Witjas also shot down rumors that claimed Betty White had just gotten a COVID-19 booster shot on Dec. 28 and that may have played a part in 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.. Her death should not be politicized — that is not the life she lived.”

Jeff Witjas went on to admit that while Betty White was getting older, he thought she would be here forever. He said,

“Even though Betty was about to be 100, I thought she would live forever. I will miss her terribly and so will the animal world that she loved so much. I don’t think Betty ever feared passing because she always wanted to be with her most beloved husband Allen Ludden. She believed she would be with him again.”

Ludden and White were married from 1963 until his death in 1981. According to reports, White’s “very last word” was “Allen”- her late husband.

The eight-time Emmy winner’s death came just weeks before a milestone 100th birthday. Betty White had the longest running career for any woman in TV history, starring in multiple shows over the past 8 decades, starting back in 1939. Her most popular role was when she played Rose Nylund on “The Golden Girls” which ran from 1985 to 1992, and is still loved by many today.

In later years, Betty White made sure to stay relevant by guest starring on several TV Shows and movies such as, “30 Rock, “Boston Legal”, “The Simpsons”, “The Bold and The Beautiful”, and “The Proposal”. She even hosted “Saturday Night Live” in 2010 at the age of 88, making her the oldest person to ever host  the show. Her SNL performance was so well received, that she was awarded her seventh Emmy from the gig.


RIP To The Legendary Betty White!
