According to her agent, the actress "had voluntarily checked herself into a treatment facility early this week where she was battling the addiction problems that have plagued her these past few years."

"I spoke to her on Monday and she was hopeful and confident, looking forward to putting this part of her life behind her," her agent continued in a statement. "Last night she lost the battle."

A cause of death hasn't been released yet, her agent said.

In June, Kelly was arrested on suspicion of DUI on a freeway near Burbank, California. She was also arrested for driving under the influence in 2010, spending a year on probation.

Last month she filed for divorce from her husband Robert Gilliam. The two were both arrested in November 2012 after getting into a physical fight. Reportedly, it was the second time she had been arrested for alleged spousal abuse. She was arrested in March 2012 in Los Angeles for a violent incident with her husband, but the charges were eventually dropped.

Kelly played Laurie, the sister of Topher Grace's Eric, on That '70s Show. She also appeared on Murphy Brown, Charmed and Silk Stalkings, after making her acting debut in Married...with Kids in 1992.
