According to Entertainment Tonight, the 56-year-old dedicated the latest episode of his podcast, "WTF With Marc Maron," to the filmmaker. After referring to Lynn as his partner, friend, and girlfriend, Marc stated

“I made her laugh all the time, and she made me laugh, and we were happy. We laughed a lot. We traveled, we wrote."

Marc then went on to narrate the events leading up to his late girlfriend's death, which started with an illness which they thought was strep throat.

Marc recalled that he and Lynn met back in 2015 of a recording of the “WTF” podcast. As at that time, Lynn was married to Kevin Seal.

Even though they ran a novel coronavirus test that came up negative, Lynn's fever persisted for days. The writer and producer eventually made an appointment to run some blood tests.

However, before they could go for the test, Lynn collapsed in the middle of the night and was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance.  

As reported by Independence, doctors at two hospitals did everything they could through problems with low blood pressure, anemia, and internal bleeding, "they eventually had to let her go." Luckily, the actor was able to spend some time with her before she died on Saturday, May 16.

Marc recalled that he and Lynn met back in 2015 of a recording of the "WTF" podcast. As at that time, Lynn was married to Kevin Seal.

The duo's relationship status, however, did nothing to stop the connection they felt with each other. Marc and Lynn later went to work together on projects and became a couple along the line.

Professionally, Lynn directed Marc in two of his comedy specials - "Marc Maron: Too Real" and "Marc Maron: End Time Fun" - some episodes of "Maron" and "GLOW," and the 2019 feature film, "Sword of Trust." 

Associated Press reported that the duo had been working on a script they had been playing with for some years, just before Lynn's death.
