Best-selling author Jackie Collins has died of breast cancer at the age of 77.
She was diagnosed six-and-half-years ago with the deadly disease and had told her sister-actress Joan Collins about the news just over a week ago in London, England.
Collins first started publishing novels in the 1960’s and her most popular one was “Hollywood Wives,” which sold over 15 million copies after it was released in 1983.
According to her family, a private funeral will take place and they are asking for donations that will go towards organizations helping in the fight against breast cancer.
