Simon seemed angry about the failed pregnancy and did not visit Fisher at all during her two weeks in the hospital after a painful operation around the beginning of 1984, writes Sheila Weller in her book Carrie Fisher: A Life on the Edge, available November 12.

An ectopic pregnancy is when a fertilized egg implants and grows outside the womb, potentially damaging nearby organs and leading to death due to the growing problem that causes life-threatening bleeding.

For Fisher, losing the baby was one of her greatest sorrows and & # 39; it was devastating for her & # 39 ;.

Weller writes: & # 39; Paul was very cold with her during this period. He seemed distracted and didn't think about her. She considered what she had had as a & # 39; & # 39; near-death experience & # 39; & # 39 ;. She said that Paul was not only unmoved (what she went through); he actually seemed angry about it.

& # 39; Then Carrie knew that the marriage with Paul was over. & # 39;

The biography also delves deeper into Fisher & # 39; s three-month affair with her Star Wars co-star Harrison Ford, revealing that the two had a standing Friday night staying where they would smoke weed together.

Bryan said in a statement on his behalf and Billie: “A person named Sheila Weller has taken on the task of selling and writing an unauthorized biography based on my daughter's mother, Carrie Fisher. I don't know Mrs. Weller. Billie doesn't know Mrs. Weller. And as far as I know, Carrie didn't know her.

& # 39; Madam. Weller has sold this book without our involvement. I thought it was necessary for all Carrie fans and friends to know this information before you decide to buy this book or consider what is being said in the upcoming press interviews that Weller will do while trying to sell it.

& # 39; For clarity, I have not read the book. The only books about Carrie Fisher that are worth reading are the books that Carrie himself wrote. They told us perfectly everything we needed to know. & # 39;

Weller said in response to the family: & # 39; I was rejected the first time – but in an email – and invited to inform again later. My two follow-ups had no answer … It is my great admiration for the life and work of Carrie Fisher that forced me to write the book in the first place. & # 39;

Carrie was young and influenceable when she met Audition in 1976 for what her iconic role as Princess Leia in Star Wars would be.

At the time, Ford was married to Mary Marquardt with two young children, but was a Hollywood hipster working as a carpenter and making ends meet sell drugs awaiting his major breakthrough.

He smoked weed on the way to the set and flipped through the takes.

Carrie came to the set fresh from a weight loss camp in Texas, where she lost 10 pounds. Harrison started flirting with Carrie and they started a secret three-month affair.

No one in the cast or crew knew about this & # 39; sleepover & # 39; every Friday night when they smoked weed together.

& # 39; I could have been as high as number 15 on his agenda, while Harrison was my number one & # 39 ;, Fisher quotes.

She added: & # 39; I could charm the birds from someone's tree except his. & # 39;

& # 39; She prepared herself for challenge and misery with a reluctant, hard-to-get married man who was fourteen years older & # 39 ;, Weller writes.

Fisher & # 39; s smoking weed habit would eventually evolve towards developing a cocaine habit and self-medication – which would play a role in her death in December 2016.

Her toxicological report showed that she had taken cocaine, methadone, ethanol and opiates within 72 hours of her death and was also exposed to heroin and ecstasy.

The Star Wars icon was on the last leg of a flight from London to Los Angeles when she awoke abruptly, vomited uncontrollably, and could not breathe.

Sleep apnea had worried her for years, but now it was there and she was completely in cardiac arrest. Fisher was rushed to intensive care at the UCLA medical center as soon as the plane landed.

There was no news until three days later when Carrie & # 39; s daughter Billie and Billie & # 39; s father, Bryan Lourd confirmed Carrie & # 39; s death on December 27, 2016.

Diagnosed as bipolar two – the name changed from manic depression – Carrie was an admitted drug addict and refused to choose lithium treatment for self-medication with opiates until it killed her.

& # 39; Carrie would alternately defy the diagnosis and celebrate for years & # 39; and surrender to her own & # 39; cocktail of medicines & # 39 ;, writes Weller.

& # 39; The diagnosis made her freer and more accepting of the mania she had always understood in herself – with the unofficial reservation that she did not have to follow the treatment in an orthodox manner. & # 39;

Carrie inherited her drug addiction and bipolar disorder from her father, 1960's crooner Eddie Fisher, who shamefully abandoned the family to the arms of Elizabeth Taylor – later returned to hit Carrie, commented on her big breasts and ass, and to borrow money for the rest of his dissolved life.

On the evening before her wedding to Paul Simon, Eddie told her: & You have a great **. You should marry me & # 39 ;.

& # 39; Eddie was speeding for 13 years and then he was a pill addict and I too & # 39 ;, Carrie confessed and revealed to Diane Sawyer on national TV.

She admitted that she was on everything. XTC, MDA, Percodan. It's hard to get. You must lie to doctors & # 39 ;. She even blurted out that she also sniffed heroin.

& # 39; I am mentally ill, & # 39; she said to Sawyer. & # 39; I feel that I am the doctor and the patient, but often the doctor is not in it & # 39 ;.

Eddie went up to speed for 13 years and then he was addicted to pills and me too. I'm mentally ill. I feel that I am the doctor and the patient, but the doctor is not there much time.

Fisher found a lifelong good friend in fellow manic-depressive actor Richard Dreyfuss.

Bipolar himself, Dreyfuss understood what it was like to stumble on and alongside medication through a race bipolar spirit.

These were the early days of Saturday Night Live and the cast hung with Lorne Michaels and Paul, the first musical guest of the show.

Carrie and John Belushi, an SNL regulator, had become close Platonic friends, according to Judy Belushi, and shared & # 39; a preference for cocaine & # 39 ;.

Carrie confessed to musical director Guy Strobel that she used large amounts of Percocet, oxycodone plus acetaminophen, a drug that bipolars use to self-medicate, but usually only two a day, according to NY psychologist, Dr. Dean Parker.

& # 39; Carrie would eventually admit that she would take thirty a day & # 39 ;, writes Weller.

Describing what it was like to live in her mind during a mild mania:

& # 39; I will tell myself nine stories about what I am looking at … My drug thing was, if I told seven stories about each situation (the drugs would help) to bring it back to maybe three. & # 39;

The attraction between Carrie and Paul was feverish. Simon, wearing a toupee, was almost as short as Carrie and only five feet tall. & # 39; Don't stand next to me at a party; people will think we are salt and pepper shakers, "she joked

Carrie also consumed Percodan and was first introduced to it by lead SNL writer Michael O & # 39; Donoghue who used it for migraine.

& # 39; She lived in her head like a madman locked in a tower, hearing the wind through her hair and waiting for someone to come and save her, & # 39; is quoted by O & # 39; Donoghue.

Meanwhile, Dreyfuss had introduced Carrie to Simon, who had divorced his first wife Peggy Harper and now saw Popeye actress Shelley Duvall. The attraction between Carrie and Paul was feverish.

Simon, wearing a toupee, was almost as short as Carrie and only five feet tall. & # 39; Don't stand next to me at a party – people will think we are salt and pepper shakers & she said.

Simon rented a yacht that was once thought to belong to Aristotle Onassis or Princess Grace Kelly and they traveled through the Greek islands.

When Paul was out of town, Carrie called Guy Strobel, musical director of the upcoming production of Papp, with the question: & # 39; I am bedridden at Paul. Can you save me? & # 39;

In the meantime, Carrie became increasingly uncomfortable in Paul & # 39; s more sophisticated world that she considered intellectual.

& # 39; I wasn't ready for it & # 39 ;, Carrie admitted, feeling challenged after he quit high school.

Fisher & # 39; s relationship with her mother actress Debbie Reynolds was a complicated mother-daughter need that made Carrie feel less than compared to her mother who was always blinded and increased Carrie & # 39; s medication intake

She spent her day shopping in Soho with girlfriends. She would give them money; they would jump out of the limousine and rush to see who could buy the fastest.

Paul and Carrie decided to get married in July 1983. He suggested at Yankee Stadium and they got married eight days later.

She was 26, he was 41 and they had been on and off together for five years. They divorced nine months later in 1984.

& # 39; Carrie was an addict. It wasn't Paul, ”Weller writes, and her independence was difficult for Paul, who really wanted his wife to wait for him at home.

Carrie was in rehearsals for a Joseph Papp musical and there were rumors that SNL regular John Belushi would appear on stage at the end of the rehearsals to sniff cocaine with Carrie.

The rumors persisted that Carrie and Belushi did coke all night.

Debbie Reynolds stood in the stands at the rehearsal, entering the city to help Carrie rehearse.

It was a complicated need for mother-daughter that made Carrie feel less than when compared to her mother who was always blinded – and increased Carrie & # 39; s medication intake.

By 2007, Carrie seemed to be on fire. But even that extreme treatment did not resolve her addictions and she never escaped a sense of insecurity about her talent compared to that of her razzmatazz mother, although she so successfully changed from actress to acting writer and a script doctor. One day after Carrie died on December 27, 2016, her mother Debbie Reynolds also died after a stroke. Shown: Fisher, Reynolds and Fisher & # 39; s daughter Billie in 2015

She dropped to 95 pounds and tried to stay clean, but other users got her back on drugs.

A manic Carrie could talk to Dreyfuss on the phone for eight to twelve hours, who would tell her to use her medication.

By 2007, Carrie seemed to be on fire.
