Actress Lisa Robin Kelly, best known as “Laurie” in TV’s “That ’70s Show,” has passed away at the age of 43 after a battle with alcohol abuse.

Kelly died in her sleep at a rehab facility in California, where she had been seeking help for booze-related issues since last week.

The spokesperson tells TMZ, “She had been fighting demons for a while and finally lost her battle.”

Kelly had been struggling with alcohol problems for several years, and was just arrested for a suspected DUI in June.

She was previously busted for the same charge in 2010, when she was fined and sentenced to 12 months of unsupervised probation following an incident in North Carolina.

Last year, she was arrested again on a felony charge of corporal injury upon a spouse following a complaint filed by her ex-boyfriend, John Michas, and months later, she was slapped with allegations of assault against her husband, Robert Joseph Gilliam.

Testimony from AEG Live executive Paul Gongaware on his interactions with Jackson and his negotiations with the singer’s doctor dominated the fifth week of a civil case against the company filed by the superstar’s mother, Katherine. On Tuesday May 28, 2013, Gongaware reluctantly acknowledged that he negotiated the $150,000 per month rate that Jackson’s doctor expected to be paid to serve on the “This Is It” tour.
