It was announced earlier today the A View to a Kill star had died in Los Angeles, however Mike Pingel told TMZ that her husband Lance discovered from the hospital she was staying in that she didn’t die.
Roberts was believed to have collapsed at her home on Christmas Eve.
She was rushed to a medical centre in the Californian city where she was placed on a ventilator.
Pingel told the site that Tanya, 65, had passed away, but claims he got a call at 10am LA time on Monday to say that it was a mistake.
TMZ reports: “Lance got a call just after 10 AM Monday from the hospital saying Tanya was still alive.
“Pingel said Lance truly believed Tanya had died.”
Lance had also phoned her friends and family to confirm she’d died, it’s claimed.
Mike had even posted a picture of them on Instagram, saying he was “devastated” by the news.
Early Monday, TMZ had originally reported that Tanya returned home from a walk with her dogs, when she “collapsed,” and was “taken to a hospital.”
Her representative told the site at the time that Tanya was “put on a ventilator, but never got better” though her death was unrelated to Covid-19.
The actress passed away at a hospital in California, he said.
Celebrities and fans then rushed to pay tribute to her.
Tanya is known for being a Charlie’s Angel in the TV series as well as a Bond girl, starring opposite Roger Moore in A View To A Kill in 1985.
She also starred as Midge Pinciotti in That 70’s Show for many years.
Tanya also starred in a number of films through the 70s and 80s, with the likes of The Beastmaster and Sheena among her 40 acting credits.
The film star also enjoyed a modelling career and in 1982 she posed for Playboy.
