LOS AN­GE­LES — That ’70s Show ac­tress Lisa Robin Kelly has died at age 43.

Man­ager Craig Wy­ck­off says Kelly died Wed­nes­day at a Los An­ge­les ad­dic­tion treat­ment fa­cil­ity she had en­tered early this week. No of­fi­cial cause of death was dis­closed.

Kelly por­trayed Lau­rie For­man, sis­ter of To­pher Grace’s lead char­ac­ter Eric, on the Fox se­ries. It con­cluded in 2006.

Un­like some of her co-stars — Grace, Ash­ton Kutcher and Laura Pre­pon — Kelly fell out of the spot­light af­ter ap­pear­ing on the sit­com un­til she started mak­ing head­lines for per­sonal trou­bles.

She was ar­rested in Novem­ber along with hus­band Robert Joseph Gilliam in con­nec­tion with a dis­tur­bance at their home in Mooresville, N.C.

In June, she was ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of drunken driv­ing af­ter her car stalled in Bur­bank, Calif.
