Betty White is not dead. In fact, she is alive and well, despite the fears of some fans.
When soul singer Betty Wright passed away, it led to some people getting confused about who she was.
Some people thought that it meant that the Golden Girls star had died, but that is not the case.
Now, representatives of the long-time actress have reached out to make sure that everyone knows Betty is still with us.
Statement released to Today show
The Today show received a statement from one of White’s reps on Monday. It was sent out in an effort to curtail the online rumors sweeping social media.
The concerns about White had begun to grow on the back of the COVID-19 outbreak across the country, but all of them have now been put to rest.
Today viewers were told that White is in self-isolation to shield herself from the pandemic and that the 98-year-old actress is doing well. The statement also highlighted that everyone around White is making sure she is kept safe, and that the only visitors she currently has are a family of ducks.
“No one (is) permitted in except those who must,” it read. “(She) has helpers who are great with her. The only guests she has are a family of ducks. Betty has a beautiful backyard with a number of wild animals visiting. Two ducks always come by to say hello. They waddle up to her glass door and look in.”
