Andy Kaufman's Last GF

He's Dead Dead Dead Dead

... I Watched Him Die

Andy Kaufman
is dead as a doornail and he's NOT coming back, so says his last girlfriend -- who tells TMZ, she watched him die ... and the self-proclaimed "daughter" who revealed herself this week is a big fat phony.

56-year-old Lynne Margulies tells us, she was present inside the West Hollywood hospital room when Kaufman passed away in 1984 from a rare form of lung cancer. She was there, and she insists she saw him die with her own eyes.

She says, "I was in the hospital room. I was there. They would have had to switch bodies."

Lynne is convinced the 24-year-old woman who claimed she was Kaufman's daughter this week at the Gotham Comedy Club is just "pulling an Andy" and trying to perpetuate the myth that the comic's still alive.

111313_andy_koffman_daughter_launchLynne believes Andy's brother Michael -- who was hosting the 9th Annual Andy Kaufman Awards when the mystery woman stepped forward -- is in on it too.

Lynne says she knows Andy's REAL daughter Maria, who's in her 40s, and insists Andy has no other children.

If that's not enough, we've also obtained Andy's official L.A. County death record, which lists his date of death as May 16, 1984.

So now we'll ask again ...

Alexandra Tatarsky, the alleged daughter is a NYC based "actrress" of theater and you can find her on Facebook, on YouTube (performing in a series of recent webisodes/that are horrible btw) and her REAL father is a reknowned NYC-based psychologist for the treatment of addicts.

I think Michael Kaufman (Andy's living brother) put Alexandra Tatarsky up to it and should be ashamed - LET IT GO MICHAEL.. LET ANDY GO..!

This story is right up there with Elvis sightings and alien abductions. How can so many people have believed for a second that Andy was alive? God friggin' grief. Makes me embarrassed to click in this site let alone read the comments...although they are often more entertaining than the stupid stories.

Only thing that is strange is that fact the posted screenshot of the death certificate listing is it states no affidavit(s) are filed on the death certificate. It is strange after all the success that Andy had that he would not have acquired any property. A affidavit is needed for that.

You're flogging a dead horse again, TMZ. She's an actress and it was a joke...but you probably already knew that, right?

This was obviously a stunt because the brother didn't seem very emotional about the sudden stunning revelation that his long thought dead brother was actually alive. He told the girl to say hello to her father when what any normal person would have done was grab her and say please take me to my brother now!!

Okay his brother is f***ing weird, he should apologize, it's not even remotely funny. It is so cruel to instigate a rumor like this about someone who suffered and died of cancer. My mom is dying of cancer….I WISH IT WAS A GODDAM HOAX. Shame on Michael…so disgusting. And then that audience member that was on tmz live yesterday…she was still "reeling" from the revelation- not sure what to make of her either.
