Luke Perry died on Monday, March 4 after suffering a massive stroke. The Beverly Hills, 90210 actor was 52 years old.
“Actor Luke Perry, 52, passed away today after suffering a massive stroke. He was surrounded by his children Jack and Sophie, fiancé Wendy Madison Bauer, ex-wife Minnie Sharp, mother Ann Bennett, step-father Steve Bennett, brother Tom Perry, sister Amy Coder, and other close family and friends. The family appreciates the outpouring of support and prayers that have been extended to Luke from around the world, and respectfully request privacy in this time of great mourning. No further details will be released at this time,” a statement obtained by The National ENQUIRER said.
Luke previously suffered a massive stroke on Wednesday, February 27, and was hospitalized after paramedics responded to a 9-1-1 call at his Sherman Oaks, California. He was allegedly sedated in hopes to heal from the trauma, but the damage was too severe.
Oddly enough, Luke’s bombshell health scare happened the same day FOX announced the reboot of Beverly Hills, 90210, the series that made him famous. The 52-year-old actor played Dylan McKay on the hit show from 1990 until 2000. However, he was not scheduled to appear on the revival.
Luke was previously married to Rachel Sharp from 1993 until 2003, and the pair had two children together, Jack, 21, and Sophie 18.
The Hollywood star grew up in Ohio, but later moved to Hollywood to pursue his acting career. In addition to 90210, he was known for his roles on Riverdale, Ties That Bind, Body of Proof, and more.
Rest in peace.
