Three days later, Heche’s rep told E! News that the actress had slipped into a coma and did not “regain consciousness since shortly after the accident.”
After Heche’s passing, her ex-husband Coleman “Coley” Laffoon has shared a heartbreaking farewell to the late actress and gave an update on their 20-year-old son, Homer.
“In the wake of Anne’s passing, I just want to say a few things. One, I loved her and I miss her, and I’m always going to,” he said in a selfie video on Instagram on Aug. 12. “Two, Homer is OK. He’s grieving, of course, and it’s rough, it’s really rough, as probably anybody can imagine. But he’s surrounded by his family and he’s strong and he’s going to be OK.”
In addition to Homer, Heche is also a mom to 13-year-old son Atlas, whose father is her ex-partner and Men in Trees co-star James Tupper.
