Actor Luke Perry’s daughter, Sophia Perry, reacted to her father’s sudden death from a massive stroke with a social media post thanking friends and her father’s fans for the “overwhelming amount of love and support.”
In an Instagram post on Tuesday, Perry, 18, who rushed back from Malawi, where she had been visiting for the past month, made it “just in time to be here with my family,” she said.
The “Beverly Hills 90210” star suffered a massive stroke last week at his home in Sherman Oaks, California, and died Monday at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Burbank.
“I’m not really sure what to say or do in this situation,” Perry wrote. “It’s something you aren’t ever given a lesson on how to handle, especially when it’s all happening in the public eye.”
Luke Perry had two children, Sophia and Jack, with his ex-wife Minnie Sharp.
