Betty White won't be buried with her late husband, agent says

Betty White's agent said she will not be buried with her late husband in Wisconsin.


Actress Betty White's agent said she would not be buried with her late husband in Wisconsin.

White, age 99, died Friday at her home in southern California.

Her agent Jeff Witjas told ABC News he believed the comedy icon died from natural causes.

"She died in her sleep, in her own bed. It's as simple as that," he said in a phone conversation.

Witjas dismissed rumors that White died from complications from a COVID-19 booster shot.

"Betty didn't have illnesses. She didn't have anything. People are putting it out there that she had the booster on Dec. 28 and that she had effects. She never had a booster," he said.

Witjas said people were trying to politicize White's death.

"They shouldn't do that because she wasn't that type of person in life," he said.

Witjas told ABC he visited White in her home about a month before she died and found her to be "all there," albeit physically frail.

"We were laughing, her sense of humor was there," he said.

When asked if White would be buried in Wisconsin, Witjas said she would not.

White's late husband, Allen Ludden, was born in and is buried there.

He and White were married from 1963 until his death from stomach cancer in 1981.

There has been no official announcement on when or where White will be buried.

Her final resting place could be in California or Illinois.
