Carrie Fisher's Brother Snubbed From Walk of Fame Ceremony

Carrie Fisher is finally set to receive her posthumous star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, but as of right now, her beloved brother Todd isn't invited to the ceremony, which is taking place May 4th—a.k.a. Star Wars Day.

The producer and director claimed to TMZ that he's the reason Carrie is even receiving the star, as he's allegedly the one that has worked to honor Billie Lourd's mom's legacy. As for why he was nixed from the guest list? The outlet claimed that Todd believes his family is behind the snub.

Apparently, when Todd first found out he wasn't invited, his team called up the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, who blamed Disney for the final guest list. Disney, on the other hand, allegedly said that it was Carrie's family who filled up the 30 allotted slots, and Todd was apparently advised not to "add anymore stress to his niece," about the attendees.

"It's heartbreaking and shocking to me that I was intentionally omitted from attending this important legacy event for my sister, Carrie," Todd told the publication.

After all, he attended their mother's, the late Debbie Reynolds, own Walk of Fame ceremony with Carrie, whom he says he was inseparable from for over 60 years. Naturally, the news that he wasn't welcome at his sister's ceremony was "extremely hurtful and distressing as [he] was always a big part of everything [his] sister and mother did historically over their lifetimes."

Todd recognizes that the event is not about him, but asserted, "I don't deserve to be put in this position."

He added, "As the only brother of the Carrie Fisher, being omitted from this special day is truly hurtful."

He's also told the publication that he's certain that Carrie would want him there.
