Daughter of legendary actress Carrie Fisher, Billie Lourd, recently shed light on why her uncles, Todd, Joely and Tricia Leigh Fisher, were not invited to the delivery ceremony of her mother’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Lourd said that she did not invite them, and they “know why.” The explanation came after Todd Fisher expressed his disappointment and shock over not being included in the event on TMZ.
Lourd also explained that her uncles and aunt had publicly capitalized on her mother’s death by selling individual books and doing several interviews for money. Fisher’s complicated relationship with her family is known only by those who were close to her. Lourd expressed hurt over the actions of her relatives, which she found to be very hurtful during the most difficult time of her life.
Fisher was a renowned actress, screenwriter and writer, best known for her role as Princess Leia Organa in the original Star Wars trilogy. The delivery ceremony of her star will be held on May 4, Star Wars Day, in honor of Fisher’s legacy as Princess Leia. Although she passed away in 2016, her iconic role still lives on through the Star Wars franchise. Fisher also wrote several books, plays and screenplays and was known for her sarcastic humor and honesty about her own life.
