Following her death, several reports surfaced on the internet claiming that the Emmy winner died as a result of complications caused by the COVID-19 booster shot she received days before her death. Meanwhile, White’s agent, Jeff Witjas, who was also a close friend of the actor, recently slammed the reports. “Betty died peacefully in her sleep at her home,” Witjas told People magazine.

Witjas also refuted a debunked report that White had received a COVID-19 booster shot on December 28. “People are claiming that her death was caused by a booster shot she received three days prior, but this is not true. She died as a result of natural causes. Her death should not be politicised; that was not her life “He told the publication.

Vicki Lawrence, White’s ‘Mama’s Family’ co-star, revealed in a new interview with Page Six that the cultural icon called out late husband Allen Ludden’s name moments before she died. “I texted Carol [Burnett] and said, ‘This sucks.'” This irritates me. ‘It’s just horrible to see people you care about leave,’ Carol wrote back, adding, ‘I know, I know. “I spoke with Betty’s assistant, who was with her when she died, and she said the last word out of her mouth was ‘Allen,'” Lawrence explained.
