Tanya Roberts was said to have died after she was admitted to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
The 65-year-old star had collapsed at her home on Christmas Eve after taking her dog for a walk and was rushed to hospital.
A statement was issued by Roberts’ representative Mike Pingel saying she had died, which was picked up and widely reported on by global media.
However, Pingel has now said he has received a phone call from the hospital on Monday morning saying she was still alive.
Nonetheless, the star is said to be in a “poor condition”, according to AP.
Pingel said he was told by Roberts’ partner Lance O’Brien she had died and had put out a statement.
Roberts’ longtime partner O’Brien received a call from the hospital to confirm the actress was still alive and had not died.
O’Brien received the call from the hospital confirming Roberts was still alive midway through an on-camera interview with Inside Edition.
He broke down in tears and was heard saying: “I’m so happy.”
