Betty White‘s agent is clearing the air about the cause of Betty’s passing.
We previously reported that the legendary actress passed away at age 99 on Dec. 31. According to her agent and friend, Jeff Witjas, the Golden Girl, “died peacefully in her sleep at her home.”
“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,” Witjas told NBC News on Monday, Jan. 3. “Her death should not be politicized—that is not the life she lived.”
An official cause of death has not been released at this time.
