Lisa Robin Kelly, the actress who played Laurie Forman in That 70’s Show, passed away in rehab last night, August 14th.

According to TMZ, the 43-year-old passed away in her sleep. She had checked herself in for treatment for an alcohol problem just last week.

Sources informed the website that Kelly had been in and out of rehab for quite a few years trying to end her addiction. The actress struggled particularly after a dispute with estranged husband Robert Gilliam.

Kelly had filed for divorce from Gilliam after he apparently assaulted her last May to obtain money from her show. Gilliam was convicted of domestic battery and sentenced to 3 years probation.

Lisa apparently went into cardiac arrest on Wednesday night and could not be saved.

Kelly herself had been arrested for on DUI charges, spousal abuse and assault in the past.

She was best known for her role as Eric Forman’s sister in That 70’s Show.
