Sylvie Rousseau, the mother of “Lo Que La Vida Me Robó” star Angelique Boyer, died this week after battling cadiac complications for weeks.
Boyer’s mother had undergone several surgeries lately, prompting Boyer to ask her Twitter followers for O-positive blood.
Boyer was in the studio filming scenes for the popular Univision telenovela when she received the call. She rushed to her mother’s side.
Boyer will be going through a tough time in the coming weeks, so producers of Lo Que La Vida Me Robó will be adjusting the filming schedule, according to Radio Formula. For now, production has been halted. The telenovela is close to wrapping up, as the finale will be broadcast on Sunday, July 27.
After that, “Hasta El Fin Del Mundo” will replace it.
In a previous interview, Rousseau had opened up about her heart problem.
“I have a problem with my heart. There are four heart murmurs that I possibly got from birth,” she said.
“They were going to do a high-risk operation, which would have caused a heart attack to clear the arteries that were inflaming the wall of my heart. In addition, they found a respiratory deficiency. I have emphysema after being a smoker. After a test, it was discovered that I have respiratory problem, and at the time of operation, it become too great a risk. I don’t have strength in my lungs, but the doctors say that if I maintain a balanced diet and leave behind the filthy cigarettes, I can live well.”
