Joan Rivers' Family Reportedly Considers Legal Action Over the Throat Procedure


Joan Rivers


A source close to the comedian's family claims that 'shock and upset is turning to anger, and they are looking for someone to blame' following her serious condition.

Joan Rivers' family reportedly is considering to file lawsuit over the throat procedure which she underwent before going into a serious condition. "Shock and upset is turning to anger, and they are looking for someone to blame," a source told NY Daily News. "The night before, she was performing and now she is on life support. An 81-year-old should not have that procedure as an outpatient. Very ill advised."

The source continued saying that doctors who treated Rivers had tried waking her up from the medically-induced coma and the process would take place for a few days. "The waking-up process has begun and will take until Tuesday. There is real concern that the part of the brain that controls motor skills may have been compromised, leaving her as either a vegetable or in a wheelchair," the source explained.

Rivers was rushed to the Mount Sinai Hospital on Thursday, August 28 after she had cardiac arrest during the throat procedure. "Thank you for your continued love and support. We are keeping our fingers crossed," her daughter Melissa said in a statement on Sunday.

Well-wishes keep pouring from friends and fans of the "Fashion Police" star. "Thinking of you and your family today. You are in my prayers," Mike Tyson tweeted Sunday. Fellow comedian Amy Schumer additionally wrote, "Come on Joan!!!" while Seth Rogen said in a Twitter post, "I really need Joan Rivers to be ok."
