Carrie Fisher’s father, a popular singer of the 50’s who is perhaps best known for leaving Debbie Reynolds for Elizabeth Taylor, died yesterday after complications from hip surgery. Carrie tweeted:
My Puff Daddy passed away Wednesday night due to complications following his hip surgery. He was an extraordinary talent and a true mensch.
He was loved & will be missed by his 4 children as well as his 6 grandchildren. He was an extraordinary talent and a true mensch.
Our condolences go out to Carrie and her family.
