According to his daughter, Tricia Leigh Fisher, the singer died in his Berkely home due to complications from hip surgery Wednesday night.
Fisher sold millions of records in the early 1950s with hit songs including "Thinking of You," "Any Time" and "Oh, My Pa-pa." He developed a huge following of teenage girls thanks to his good looks.
However, Fisher was best known for the scandals related to his marriages to Debbie Reynolds and Elizabeth Taylor.
He married movie darling Debbie Reynolds in 1955 and they were touted as "America's favorite couple."
The couple's daughter Carrie Fisher later became a famous film and stage actress herself.
Fisher's best friend, producer Mike Todd, was killed in a plane crash in 1958. Fisher went to comfort his widow, movie starlet Elizabeth Taylor, and the two soon fell in love.
America was shocked when Fisher divorced Reynolds and married Taylor in 1959.
Fisher's career never recovered from the notoriety. He married actress Connie Stevens, and they had two daughters. Another divorce followed. He married twice more.
