The iconic comedienne's will shows she was very generous in giving a large portion of her money to several charities.
Details of the late Joan Rivers' will have emerged after it was filed in Manhattan Surrogate's Court and, not surprisingly, the iconic comedienne generously spread her estimated fortune of $150 million to different charities, friends, and family members.
Rivers left a large portion of her fortune to charity
However, according to the document, obtained by Page Six, the will doesn't reveal the specific amounts that were shared out as all of her fortune was left to beneficiaries through a blind trust, only naming Joan's daughter Melissa an executor of the estate.
Although, the will did divulge that Joan decided to donate a portion of her cash to the New York-based charity God's Love We Deliver, as well as California's Guide Dogs for the Blind, the Jewish Guild for the Blind in Manhattan, the Simon Wiesenthal Center, the Jewish Home and Hospital Federation of Manhattan and The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
The former 'Fashion Police' host also left Melissa all her tangible property, and other beneficiaries left unspecified amounts include her grandson Cooper, niece Caroline Waxler and nephew Andrew Waxler. Joan's publicist Scott Currie and assistants Jocelyn Pickett and Sabrina Lott Miller were also left some money.
Furthermore, the court papers briefly mention a wrongful death lawsuit against Yorkville Endoscopy, where Joan went into cardiac and respiratory arrest after stopping breathing during a minor throat procedure at the clinic on August 28th. She passed away September 4th after being taken off life support.
Last month a report conducted by the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Service have found several serious deficiencies with the way the medical procedure was carried out, including the staff failing "to identify deteriorating vital signs."
