Joan Rivers

On Life Support

But Family Still Hopeful

8/30/2014 12:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0828-joan-rivers-tmz-05Joan Rivers is on life support ... and sources close to the legendary comedian tell TMZ she is completely reliant on machines to stay alive.

According to our sources, the family will have to decide in the next couple of days whether to keep the 81-year-old on life support. We're told the family remains hopeful that if they do decide to turn off the machines, she will make a turn for the better and fight through it.

As TMZ first reported, Rivers was rushed to the hospital after she stopped breathing during throat surgery on Thursday.

Despite her irreverent style that some consider tasteless, she has done a lot for women in the business. I may not be a huge fan, but this lady is a pioneer.
