Joni Mitchell to make full recovery: Website
Reuters PhotoFolk legend Joni Mitchell is conscious and expected to make a full recovery, her official website said April 28, denying a report that she was in a coma.
The TMZ celebrity news outlet earlier reported that the 71-year-old, who was rushed to hospital on March 31, was in a coma and “unresponsive.” But her official website said: “Joni is still in hospital but she comprehends, she’s alert, and she has her full senses. A full recovery is expected.”
TMZ said a friend of the singer-songwriter, who had been reported as having improved a few days after she was hospitalized, had filed legal documents to obtain legal guardianship over her.
Mitchell, whose real name is Roberta Joan Anderson, is known for her role in the 1960’s music scene.
