Lisa Robin Kelly, the actress who played Laurie Forman on "That '70s Show," died last night in a rehab facility. Kelly, 43, died during her sleep Wednesday night at a rehab facility somewhere in California, TMZ reports. Her agent told the website, "She had been fighting demons for a while and finally lost her battle."

Kelly had voluntarily checked herself into a treatment facility for an alcohol problem this week. Her agent said that she was determined to clean up after cycling in and out of rehab centers for some time.

Kelly has had a tumultuous few years: She had been arrested for driving drunk this June, attacking a boyfriend last April and also attacking her then-husband Robert Gilliam last November. Gilliam was also arrested in the same incident and was later convicted of domestic battery.

Kelly filed for divorce from Gilliam in July. She had a new boyfriend who brought her to a rehab facility on Monday and who also blames her ex for the relapse.
