Edie McClurg gained recognition for her roles in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” “Natural Born Killers,” and “Flubber” among other projects. She continued to take on smaller roles until her body stopped her from performing at the required level. Now we have very sad news to report concerning the beloved character actress.
According to TMZ, the actress had a nasty experience as she was nearly taken out of the state by a self-described longtime friend, who intended to marry her despite knowing that she suffers from dementia.
“The docs, obtained by TMZ, state a man named Michael L. Ramos has been living at Edie’s L.A. home as the 76-year-old actress battles dementia. According to the docs, Ramos, who is unemployed, has ‘finagled’ his way into Edie’s life and attempted to move her out of California in order to marry her, despite knowing she lacked mental capacity.
“Edie, who is under a conservatorship, got protection from a judge — according to the new docs — who ordered Ramos to stand down on his alleged marriage plan. The docs go on to say, Ramos allegedly sexually assaulted Edie’s caregiver, and a police report has already been filed with the LAPD.”
The documents noted that Edie and Ramos were never romantically involved, but the caregiver is fearful he may have been sexually assaulting Edie and, given her condition, she may not even realize what was happening.
We are hopeful for a positive outcome in this tragic story. Keep checking back with Thirsty for more details.
