Melissa Rivers Inherits Joan Rivers Fortune [WATCH VIDEO]

According to a new report Joan Rivers' daughter Melissa has received more than $100 million from her late mom's estate. The legendary comedienne passed away last month after suffering complications during a throat surgery. Read on to learn more about this story.

US Weekly reported  that the younger Rivers is set to inherit $75 million in cash, as well as, the $35 million apartment in Upper East Side, New York. It was also reported that Melissa’s 13-year-old son, Melissa’s son, Cooper, has also received a part of his grandmother’s fortune.


This news comes just one week after Joan's official cause of death was released. A New York-based medical examiner determined Rivers died of hypoxic arrest, when oxygen to her brain was cut off during the procedure. Melissa tweeted following the New York City Medical Examiner's announcement but has remained quiet since.

Joan Rivers’ fortune inheritance does not affect Melissa’s situation as she still thinking that her mother could have been live, she passed away only because of failed surgery. Melissa would give up everything to have her mother back. On Oct. 16, Rivers released a short statement following the news of her mother’s cause of death via social media.

“We continue to be saddened by our tragic loss. No further comment at this time,” Melissa said. The bequest is “no consolation for losing her mother so soon.” said a source close to Melissa told Us Weekly.

The former Fashion Police host had worked absolutely hard throughout her life because non working meant for her being not relevant. She cherished everything that she was a part of; from her signature red carpet interviews, her TV show fashion line on QVC to her stand-up comedy appearances. Joan loved spending time with her family as well, and shared a great rapport wwith her daughter. Melissa will miss their friendship the most.

 Melissa Rivers has plans to sue the medical clinic where her mother underwent surgery to ensure that this type of erroneousness doesn’t take anybody else’s life.

Our thoughts continue to go out to Melissa and Cooper at this difficult time in their lives.
