Drew Barrymore Releases Statement After Half-Sister Jessica's Sudden Passing at 47

Drew Barrymore has just released a statement about her half-sister Jessica‘s sudden passing at the age of 47, just shy of her 48th birthday.

“Although I only met her briefly, I wish her and her loved ones as much peace as possible and I’m so incredibly sorry for their loss” the 39-year-old actress said in a statement to JustJared.com.

Jessica was found in her car at 6am on Tuesday (July 29) in San Diego, Calif. A cause of death is unknown, but reports say “dozens of white pills” were found in her car.

Our thoughts are with the Barrymore family and Jessica‘s loved ones during this time.
