From Fox News:

Actor Luke Perry, who gained fame as a teen heartthrob on “Beverly Hills, 90210” and became a fan-favorite TV dad with his starring role on the hit series “Riverdale,” has died at age 52 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,” Perry’s publicist Arnold Robinson told Fox News Monday. “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.”

Robinson said no further details were being released at this time.

Last week, Perry was admitted to a hospital for “observation.” At the time, his rep did not confirm reports that he had suffered a stroke. According to TMZ, paramedics responded to a call at the star’s home in Sherman Oaks, Calif., at approximately 9:40 a.m. on Wednesday. The call came into the fire department for someone suffering a stroke, the gossip site reported.

  1. Wow…I knew that he had a stroke…now he’s dead. Then again,it’s very rare for people to survive massive strokes and if they do you know that the Lord was there for them.

    I loved 90210 in the day. Luke kind of remind me of James Dean or the characters in the Outsiders book…rugged..a cocky guy who eventually became everybody’s unexpected friend.

    RIP to Luke.
