Considering the last time we wrote about her, we used the headline “Eric’s Sister from That ‘70s Show Is (Still) Not Doing Well,” this was a sad inevitably: Lisa Robin Kelly, who indeed played the diabolically evil and definitely stunning Laurie Forman on the long-running Fox sitcom, died last night at the age of 43.

The 43-year-old actress had experienced legal and substance-abuse troubles in recent years.

Kelly died at a rehab facility while attempting to battle her demons, her agent tells TheWrap.

“Unfortunately Lisa Robin Kelly passed away last evening. Lisa had voluntarily checked herself into a treatment facility early this week where she was battling the addiction problems that have plagued her these past few years,” the agent told TheWrap on Thursday. “I spoke to her on Monday and she was hopeful and confident, looking forward to putting this part of her life behind her. Last night she lost the battle.”

A cause of death has not yet been released. (Via)

Let’s remember Kelly as she once was, a near equal to Mila Kunis in the talent and looks department. R.I.P.
