Tanya Roberts is still alive, despite her agent announcing her death.
The actress’ rep and close friend Mike Pingel confirmed her passing on Monday, telling multiple outlets he was “devastated” by the death.
However, Tanya’s partner Lance O’Brien has since told Fox News that there was a “miscommunication” which led Mike to believe the 65-year-old had passed away.

While visiting his partner in hospital, where she is being treated for an unknown illness, Lance was told that she was close to death.
Lance explained that following the visit, he told Mike he had “just said goodbye to Tanya”, which may have led to the miscommunication.
“Next thing I know, I get home and on my cell phone, there’s a [notification] that Tanya Roberts passed away. That’s the honest-to-God truth, exactly what happened,” he said.
“They’ve got her in intensive care, but not ‘intensive care,'” Lance added.
He also claimed Tanya was in “perfect health” before her hospitalisation, and had been on a “four or five-hour hike in Hollywood Hills” prior.
Tanya is best known for her role as Midge Pinciotti in the popular sitcom That 70s’ Show, as well as Stacey Sutton in James Bond film ‘A View to a Kill’.
