Betty White’s agent Jeff Witjas has reportedly revealed that the late actress will not be buried next to her husband Allen Ludden in Wisconsin. Ludden, who Betty White was married to from 1963 to 1981 was notably buried in Mineral Point, Wisconsin after he passed away from stomach cancer.

While chatting about Betty White’s cause of the death, Witjas told ABC News, “My understanding is it was natural causes. She died in her sleep. In her own bed. It’s as simple as that.”

Witjas also confirmed that Betty White didn’t have any illnesses or any other issues. “People are putting it out there that she had the booster on December 28th. And that she had [side] effects. She never had a booster,” he explained. The late actress’ agent also declared that the people making those claims are politicizing her death. “They shouldn’t do that. Because she wasn’t that type of person in life.”

The agent and longtime friend went on to tell the media outlet that he visited Betty White in her home about a month prior to her passing away. He found her to be “all there,” but obviously physically frail. Being that she was 99-years-old. “We were laughing. Her sense of humor was there.”

Although Witjas confirmed that White will not be buried in Wisconsin, he did not reveal where exactly her final resting place will be. While breaking the news that the actress passed away on New Year’s Eve, Witjas said that he didn’t think she feared dying. “She always wanted to be with her most beloved husband Allen Ludden. She believed she would be with him again.”

Betty White Interviewed With Former Co-Stars Prior to Her Passing

Prior to unexpected death, Betty White actually sat down with various co-stars over the years to discuss her interests. This was all done through Entertainment Weekly. When Jean Smart asked if White prefers any specific dog breeds, the actress said, “I don’t just love all dogs, I love all animals! But in terms of dogs, though it’s hard to pick just one, I’ve always been fond of Pekingnese because of my dear Bandit.”

When asked if she could go back and give her 80-year-old self advice, what would it be, White answered, “I wouldn’t dare give myself advice — I’m too old! But seriously, the advice I’d give anyone at any age: Taste every moment. Don’t take anything for granted.”

White then answered what her favorite flowers were. This question was asked by Jamie Lee Curtis. “I love all flowers. My beloved husband [Allen Ludden] was quite the gardener and planted roses in our backyard — all different colors. Any rose from my garden is my favorite.”

After Jennifer Love Hewitt asked her what’s one thing that everyone would be surprised to know about her, White added, “After all my years in show biz, I don’t think there’s anything that people don’t know!”
