The legendary actress and comedian Betty White has died at the age of 99, according to TMZ.

TMZ reports Betty White passed away at her home Friday morning. She would have celebrated her 100th birthday in January.

The eight-time Emmy winner held the record for the longest TV career of any entertainer — making her debut in 1939 when the medium was just an experiment and going on to appear as an actress, host and in-demand guest well into her 90s.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ she passed at home Friday morning.
