James Blunt reveals that Carrie Fisher may have predicted her own death

Carrie Fisher's tragic death may have come as a shock to most, but the "Star Wars" actress may have known her time was coming sooner rather than later.

James Blunt was once a guest in Fisher's home, and he revealed in an interview with The Sunday Times an eerie story about how she seemingly predicted her death.

The British singer got close with the Hollywood icon after staying at her home while recording his first album in the United States.

"Fisher was my American mother, and a real inspiration," he told the British paper.

Fisher died at the age of 60 after suffering a heart attack while on board a flight from London to Los Angeles in December of last year. Just a day later, her mother Debbie Reynolds passed away at the age of 84. According to Reynolds' death certificate, she died from a blood vessel that ruptured and caused bleeding in her brain.
