Garry Shandling died of a massive heart attack, sources close to the comedian told RadarOnline.com
According to an insider close to the comedian, “We are hearing that Garry had a massive and sudden heart attack.”
Said the source, “The word is that his heart basically exploded.”
LAPD, LAFD, Shandling’s rep, and LA coroner Ed Winter all declined to comment on the specifics of Shandling’s passing.
As Radar reported, the beloved comedian and Larry Sanders Show star died Thursday at an L.A. hospital. He was 66.
Back in January, he revealed that he was suffering from hyperparathyroidism during an episode of Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee.
Studies have shown a possible link between that disease and coronary issues.
