Melissa Rivers Left With No Choice But To Sue Over Her Mother’s Death

Melissa Rivers Left With No Choice But To Sue Over Her Mother's Death

Joan Rivers passed away on September 4, 2014 after undergoing what was thought to be a routine surgery. Now, her daughter Melissa is looking for answers and has been advised that the only way she’ll get answers to what really happened is to file a lawsuit.

Sources connected to the Rivers family tell TMZ … after the New York Dept. of Health and Human Services came out with its findings that Yorkville Endoscopy LLC was “deficient” in surgical services and medical staff … Melissa tried to find out the root of the problems and if they caused her mom’s death, but she was shut down.

We’re told Melissa got advice from her lawyers … the only way to know precisely what happened is to file a lawsuit, which entitles her to force doctors and facility staff to sit for sworn depositions and answer questions about what happened the day Joan stopped breathing.

It sucks to have to go that route, but to have closure, she needs to know what went on during her mother’s final hours. What do you think?

Joan Rivers’ Cause Of Death Revealed

Joan Rivers' Cause Of Death Revealed

Joan Rivers passed away on September 4, 2014 after undergoing a throat procedure at a clinic in New York. Now, the comedienne’s official cause of death has been revealed. According to the Medical Examiner, her brain was cut off from oxygen.

TMZ reports:

Joan Rivers died because she went into hypoxic arrest during her throat procedure … cutting off oxygen to her brain — but the medical examiner is calling it a “predictable complication.”

The New York City Office of Chief Medical Examiner released its findings today, revealing that Joan was sedated with Propofol during the procedure.

The investigation also revealed Joan had the procedure to evaluate changes in her voice and to deal with acid reflux. Joan suffered brain damage due to lack of oxygen.

As for the “predictable complication” … it appears the Examiner is saying her cause of death is simply a risk associated with either anesthesia, the procedure, or both.

May she rest in peace. It’s sad that she’s gone…

Joan Rivers’ Doctor Took A Selfie While She Was Under Anesthesia

Joan Rivers' Doctor Took A Selfie While She Was Under Anesthesia

This is just about the most heinous thing I could possibly think of. According to new reports, the doctor that was treating Joan Rivers at the endoscopy clinic actually took a selfie while the legendary comedienne was under anesthesia. Ugh. TMZ reports:

Joan Rivers’ personal doctor took a selfie while the comedienne was unconscious during a biopsy … shortly before her heart stopped beating … this according to a new report.

The doctor performing the endoscopy had just finished when Joan’s personal ear nose and throat doctor began performing biopsy which was done without her consent — this according to the CNN report.

A staffer at the Yorkville Endoscopy clinic reportedly told investigators Joan’s doc stopped to take the selfie.

Let’s hope that Melissa sues the pants off of that clinic and the doctor involved. It won’t bring her back, but it would teach them not to repeat this mess. What do you think?

Joan Rivers Thought She Would Die Having Plastic Surgery

Joan Rivers Thought She Would Die Having Plastic Surgery

We lost a great one this week, folks — and losing that amount of funny in one person is tremendous loss. Joan Rivers was huge and her insults were insane and we all loved her. We send our most heartfelt condolences to Melissa and Cooper.

Joan passed away as the result of what she thought was routine throat surgery. Despite that, the comedienne always thought she would die in a different manner: under the knife, having cosmetic surgery.

According to a report from The Sun, she talked about dying during a plastic surgery procedure. She said, “I want more surgery immediately but I think I will probably wait a year because often at this age they put you down and you don’t come back – they make you cross your arms just in cases!”

She went on to say, “It’s always a concern that I’m not going to come out of it but it’s more important to me to get the work done than my own mortality because I’ve had a terrific life.”

She added, “I think it will be fabulous to die on the operating table because the publicity would keep the ‘Fashion Police’ re-runs going for years. Plus no one will say, ‘How old?’ Nobody wants to see an old face because it reminds you of your own mortality. I believe in plastic surgery to make the viewer feel better.”
