(CNN) -

Actress Tanya Roberts died Monday night, her partner, Lance O'Brien, told CNN on Tuesday.

He was 65 years old.

CNN and other media outlets, citing his longtime publicist, Mike Pingel, had previously reported that Roberts passed away Sunday night.

O'Brien told CNN he was distraught after saying goodbye to Roberts by the hospital bed Sunday and left believing it would be the last time he would see her.

On Monday morning, O'Brien received a call from the hospital and learned that Tanya Roberts was still alive, according to Pingel and O'Brien.

CNN updated its report to reflect that Roberts was still alive and was hospitalized in critical condition Monday afternoon.

O'Brien said she was notified after 9 p.m. Pacific time Monday that the actress had passed away.

Tanya Roberts was hospitalized in Los Angeles on December 24, after she collapsed at her California home after a walk with her dogs.

His cause of death has not been disclosed, but O'Brien and Pingel previously told CNN that he tested negative for covid-19.

Born Victoria Leigh Blum, Roberts began her modeling career before dabbling in film.

He spent 30 years making movies and television.

He had starring roles in the cult films "The Beastmaster" and "Sheena: Queen of the Jungle."

And he appeared on several well-known television shows of the time, including "Fantasy Island," "The Love Boat," and a season of "Charlie's Angels" as one of three main characters.

Then came his most iconic role up to that point.

In 1985 she played geologist Stacey Sutton in 'A View to a Kill', opposite Roger Moore in her last performance as James Bond.

Tanya Roberts later gained a new legion of fans during her role as Midge, Donna Pinciotti's silly mother, on "That 70s Show."

Suddenly, she left the show in its fourth season to care for her now-late husband who had been diagnosed with an illness.

(He returned in later seasons as a recurring character.)

His last on-screen appearance was in 2005 in the television series "Barbershop".

CNN's Zach Leary contributed to this report.
