The Mary Tyler Moore Show star had suffered a number of medical crises in recent years.

As Radar exclusively reported in 2014, she called 911 nine times that year for health-related problems and domestic disputes.

The following year, an ambulance rushed to her Greenwich home for a medical emergency twice in one day.

She had been bedridden for years, a source previously told The National ENQUIRER, and reportedly suffered from diabetes, Alzheimer's, and heart and kidney disease.

Celebrity friends have begun posting tributes to the late legend.

"My heart goes out to you and your family," Ed Asner, who also starred on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, tweeted after news broke. "Know that I love you."
