Lisa Robin Kelly

Rehab Center Killed My Wife

... Claims Husband

"That 70s Show" star Lisa Robin Kelly was killed by lousy treatment and an incompetent staff at the rehab center where she was found dead ... according to a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the late actress' husband.

Robert Gilliam is suing Pax House in Altadena, CA claiming Kelly's "treatment and care were improperly administered" ... and that she was neglected for "an unreasonable amount of time" by workers who weren't fit for the job.

TMZ broke the story ... Kelly died Aug. 15, three days after she was admitted to Pax House. The coroner ruled it an accidental death from multiple drug intoxication -- but never identified which specific drugs were in her system.

Gilliam claims in court docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Kelly was last seen alive by Pax workers sometime during the night of Aug. 14 ... and it wasn't until several hours later that she was discovered dead in her room.

He says his wife's death has caused him loss of love, affection, comfort ... and financial support.

If people could really sue for that, Drew Pinsky would be broke and in prison by now.

Again if people are serious abut getting clean they shouldn't go to a rehab center in CA. CA faculties are notoriously full of quack doctors and psychologists who are too lax, never follow the strict fundamental mandates, should all lose their licensees/practice.

It's Robert Gilliam's fault that Lisa Kelly is dead.Totally sickening to accuse the people who tried to help her.

Her death was so sad. Ya u haters can say what u want but a drug or alcohol problem is serious.. she should have been monitored 24 hours a day. I don't blame her husband one bit. RIP young lady. And to all u haters, I pray for u that this doesn't happen to someone u know.

Weren't they estranged at the time of her passing? I thought I read her boyfriend took her to the ER with a high level of alcohol in her blood and a few days later she went into this rehab facility.

Ummm... why do addicts and their families always blame others. Other people who are trying to help. Obviously the family couldn't help and it is always easier to blame other for their shortcomings. SHUT-UP!

I hope this wasn't the same man who leaked a private home video of her high as a kite.
I remember watching a video of her where some man filmed her in her own home when she was high. She didn't even seem aware the guy was filming her. She was so out of it. He tried selling it to tmz. This was like year before her death. The lowlife ended up posting the video on youtube after tmz wouldn't buy it and i was one of the people who watched it on youtube before it got removed. Hope it's not the same guy. it was really disgusting and i felt so bad for her that someone she trusted can be so low.

This woman was clearly sick and died because of her habits. This man clearly wants money.
