Big Yellow Taxi singer- songwriter Joni Mitchell,71 is not in Coma. Rumors of her being in coma is doing the rounds, and so a statement on her website insisting that she is doing fine was posted.
71 year old singer Joni Mitchell has been in hospital since March 31. Her friend Leslie Morris, has sought legal authority over the singer’s personal affairs. The declaration was accompanied by Doctor’s declaration stating that Mitchell would be unable to attend court hearing for four to six months but no detailed reason was specified.
The doctor’s report mentioned that Mitchell was unable to take an active involvement in her medical care. At this time, she remains unconscious and unable to make any responses and thus unable to fend for her personal needs, the signed document said.
However her website insists that the application has been misunderstood. Contrary to the rumors that were circulating in the internet, Joni is not in coma. Joni is still in the hospital but can comprehend and is fully alert and in her senses. A full recovery is expected, as per the report.
Joni is a strong-willed woman and is nowhere near giving up. The document obtained by a certain media outlet simply gives her long-time friend, Leslie Morris, the authority-in the absence of 24 hour doctor care- to make care decisions for Joni once she leaves the hospital.
Mitchell has no close family members, who can act on her behalf and the court filing would not give Morris control over her financial affairs.
The singer was admitted to the hospital after she was reportedly found unconscious at her house. The Canadian- born star with a distinctive soprano voice was one of the most influential, successful and respected singers from the late 60’s and 70’s with Big Yellow Taxi and Clouds being among her most famous songs.
She has withdrawn from public performing in recent years because of the effects decades of heavy smoking on her voice. We at Movie News Guide wish Mitchell quick recovery.
