More details surrounding actress Betty White’s death, including her cause of death, were revealed Monday, according to TMZ.

White, the actress known for her roles on shows such as “The Golden Girls” and “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” experienced a stroke six days before her death, TMZ reported. White’s death certificate, which was obtained by the outlet, indicates that the actress had been cremated.

White died on Dec. 31 at the age of 99. Prior to the release of White’s death certificate, her agent Jeff Witjas said the actress had died of “natural causes,” People reported. Witjas also denied rumors that White died after receiving her COVID-19 booster shot, telling People the claim was “not true.”

In responding to the false claims surrounding the booster shot rumor, Witjas said that White’s death “should not be politicized.”
