The Chanel #3 actress opens up about losing her mother and grandmother over the Christmas period.
2016 was a cruel year, and among those who were hit the hardest is Scream Queens star Billie Lourd, who lost two close family members over Christmas.
Her mother, Star Wars legend Carrie Fisher, passed away on December 27th, with her actress grandmother, Debbie Reynolds, dying a day later after suffering a stroke.
Billie broke her silence to pay tribute to her late family members, writing "There are no words to express how much I will miss my Abadaba and my one and only Momby. Your love and support means the world to me."
Following the heart-breaking announcements of Carrie and Debbie's deaths, Billie received countless messages of support from co-stars and fans alike, including boyfriend, Taylor Lautner.
Lea Michele (Hester), Glen Powell (Chad), John Stamos (Brock) & Jamie Lee Curtis (Cathy) all sent Billie messages of support, as well as pop princess Ariana Grande.
