The cause of deaths for both Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds have been released.

According to documents obtained by TMZ, Fisher’s cause of death is listed as ”cardiac arrest/deferred,” which means the L.A. County Coroner’s Office needs to do more testing to pinpoint the trigger for the massive heart attack she suffered before Christmas.

Meanwhile, 84-year-old Reynolds is said to have died on December 28, a day after her daughter,  after a blood vessel ruptured and caused bleeding in her brain. Hypertension is listed as an underlying cause of the stroke.

Angelina Jolie Pitt and Brad Pitt announced in a statement Monday that they have reached an agreement to handle their divorce in a private forum. “The parties and their counsel have signed agreements to preserve the privacy rights of their children and family by keeping all court documents confidential and engaging a private judge to make any necessary legal decisions and to facilitate the expeditious resolution of any remaining issues,” their statement read. “The parents are committed to act as a united front to effectuate recovery and reunification.” As previously reported, custody of their six children has been the primary issue in the divorce. Jolie was initially seeking sole physical custody.


Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes speech assertion that MMA is “not the arts” didn’t escape the notice of Dana White. On Monday, the UFC president told TMZ Sports, “The last thing in the world I expect is an uppity 80-year-old lady to be in our demographic and love mixed martial arts.” White also took umbrage with Streep’s assessment of the sport, saying “of course it’s an art. These fighters, the men and women, are so talented. They train their whole lives to become the best in the world.” At the end of the day, however, he stresses that people should let people enjoy what they enjoy, without judgment: “I’m not a big fan of golf. That doesn’t mean people should stop watching it. If you don’t like it, change the channel.”
