What is Actress Tawny Kitaen’s Cause of Sudden Death at 59?


The actress who famously starred in “Bachelor Party” and several music videos for the rock group, Whitesnake in the ’80s, passed away at 59. Tawny Kitaen’s cause of death has not been released yet.

The Orange County, California coroner’s office stated that she died at her home in Newport Beach on Friday morning, May 7. It is reported that her brother, Jordan Kitaen, said that police found nothing at the scene, such as drugs, pills, or alcohol, and no signs she took her own life, either.

Her brother believes that Tawny was devastated by the recent death of her father, who died on April 12 after a long battle with skin cancer. So, her father’s death was too much to come upon.
