Cheers Star Kirstie Alley Has Passed Away at the Age of 71 Due to Cancer!


According to her family, Kirstie Alley died after a “fight with cancer.” She was 71 years old.

“We are heartbroken to inform you that our beautiful, fierce, and loving mother has died away after a struggle with cancer that was only recently detected,” her children said in a message posted on her official Twitter account.

“She was surrounded by her closest family and fought valiantly, leaving us with the confidence of her never-ending joy of life and whatever adventures lay ahead.”

Alley won an Emmy and a Golden Globe for her performance as Rebecca Howe in the late-’80s sitcom “Cheers,” in which she co-starred with Ted Danson, Shelley Long, Woody Harrelson, and Rhea Perlman.

“As famous as she was on TV, she was an even better mother and grandmother.” We are grateful to the Moffitt Cancer Center’s amazing team of doctors and nurses for their care.

“Our mother’s fire and passion for life, her children, grandchildren, and numerous animals, not to mention her endless joy of creating, were unparalleled and motivate us to live life to the fullest just as she did.”

“We thank you for your love and prayers and ask that you respect our privacy during this terrible time,” the statement said. Always with love, Lillie Parker and True.”

Alley was also well-known for her parts in films such as “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan,” “Summer School,” “Look Who’s Talking,” “It Takes Two,” and “For Richer or Poorer.”

“One of the most special relationships I’ve ever had was with Kirstie.” Kirstie, I adore you. “I know we’ll see each other again,” John Travolta captioned a throwback photo of himself and Alley from the set of “Look Who’s Talking.”

Tim Allen sent his sympathies to the late actress on Monday, writing, “A wonderful spirit has passed on in Kristie Alley.” It’s heartbreaking news. “Prayers for her entire family.”

Oh, Kirstie ????

Rest in Peace ????????

“Oh Kirstie, Rest in Peace,” Valerie Bertinelli posted on Twitter.

Alley was recalled as a friend by Jamie Lee Curtis on Instagram “In real life, she is a gorgeous mom bear and a fantastic comic foil in ‘Scream Queens.

‘ She assisted me in purchasing onesies for my family for Christmas that year. We agreed to disagree on some issues but maintained mutual respect and connection. It’s unfortunate.”

Alley finished second on “Dancing with the Stars” in 2011, was a runner-up on “Celebrity Big Brother” in 2018, and was most recently featured on “The Masked Singer” as the Baby Mammoth.

Her two children, son William and daughter Lillie survive the “Drop Dead Gorgeous” actress. Parker Stevenson, her ex-husband, adopted both of her children.
