Drew's half-sister, Jessica Barrymore, was found dead, July 29, in San Diego, Calif., and she was only 48-years-old.
Drew Barrymore, 39, must be devastated. Drew and her half-sister, Jessica Barrymore, share the same father, actor, John Drew Barrymore. Jessica parked her car in a stranger's driveway in San Diego, Calif., a little after midnight on July 29, and was found unresponsive in her car at 6 a.m. The woman who found Jessica, claims that a SoBe energy drink and "dozens of white pills" were found inside her car.
An onlooker, Oscar Sandoval, told KGTV ABC 10: "Her car was parked right here last night around midnight. I thought she was sleeping or waiting for someone."
This horrible news comes at a time where Drew was in the midst of celebrating life. Specifically, Drew's daughter Frankie, who was born, April 22.
Drew shared the first photo of Frankie, June 12, and it was adorable. Shortly before she gave birth, Drew told People, "I'm feeling very, very happy. Happy and healthy - mentally and physically," she said. "When I found out I was overjoyed. It always feels so surreal, it's incredible. [I'm feeling] incredible, that 'Here we go again' feeling. And blessed. Blessed!"
We hope that Drew and her family are okay during this difficult time. HollywoodLifers, we will keep you posted as more information comes out.
