Eddie Fisher Dies

Singer EDDIE FISHER, who was once married to DAME ELIZABETH TAYLOR, has died at the age of 82.
The entertainer, who sparked outrage in the 1950s when he left wife Debbie Reynolds for her pal Taylor, passed away in California on Wednesday (22Sep10).
Fisher died as a result of complications stemming from recent hip surgery, according to his family.
A statement reads, "He was loved and will be missed by his four children: Carrie, Todd, Joely, and Tricia Leigh as well as his six grandchildren. He was an extraordinary talent and a true mensch (admirable person)."
Fisher became a teen idol in the 1950s with tracks including Thinking Of You and Oh! My Pa-Pa.
But he later became better known for his scandalous love life - as well as Reynolds and Taylor, he was also married to actress Connie Stevens, Terry Richard and Betty Lin, who died in 2001.
His children include Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher and Ellen star Joely Fisher.
