Tripp was "on her deathbed" Tuesday night, her daughter wrote in a Facebook post. The Daily Mail on Wednesday reported she died.

“My mommy is leaving this earth. I don’t know myself if I can survive this heartache. Please pray for a painless process for the strongest woman I will ever know in my entire lifetime,” Allison Tripp Foley wrote.

Her son-in-law Thomas Foley said only that it was a private family matter.

Lewinsky tweeted: "no matter the past, upon hearing that linda tripp is very seriously ill, i hope for her recovery. i can’t imagine how difficult this is for her family."

Tripp was reportedly born in Jersey City and graduated from Hanover Park High School in East Hanover in 1968.
