Bille Lourd commemorated her mother’s death on Mother’s Day today, and many of her fans came out in support of her on what has become a challenging day for the daughter of the late, Carrie Fisher.
The 25-year-old actress suffered two tragedies close to each other: the death of her mother, Carrie, as well as her grandma Debbie Reynolds, who passed away one day later.
Lourd reached out to her near 1 million followers to talk to those who aren’t having the greatest Mother’s Day today.
The actress took to her Instagram to write, “we are not alone. Sending all my love and strength to anyone who needs it.”
In the past, Bille told her fans that dealing with the pain coming from the death of both her mother and grandmother close together was too much to bear at times. “It was impossible to deal with,” the actress explained.
As you may know, Carrie Fisher struggled with mental health issues her entire life, and according to reports, she dealt with her problems with substances including cocaine among others.
Doctors diagnosed Carrie as suffering from bipolar disorder, which explains her mood swings and emotional difficulties.
Sources close to the family told us, “there’s a long line of illness in the family, but it comes along with their creative genius. It almost seems like there always is a price to pay for artistic talent and creativity.”
In honor of her passing, Carrie received a posthumous award for one of her spoken word albums, The Princess Diarist, which came out back in 2016. It was an audio recording of her memoir of the same title.
