We knew this had to be coming.

Melissa Rivers believes that her mother, Joan Rivers, died because of her doctors, and she's suing!

She's hired the law firm Gair, Gair, Conason, Steigman, Mackauf, Bloom & Rubinowitz, but the suit won't go through for about a month. However, they're sending out letters alerting people not to destroy any files, phone records, or any documents that are related to Joan's treatment.

We hope they haven't already!

Melissa just wants to find out what happened to her mom, but the lawsuit is still about money — so we'll keep you updated on how much she's reportedly seeking.

Since it's been weeks since Joan passed, we're hoping all of the records are still there!

    ridiculous. she was old and went under for surgery. money owns the court system. there are real wrongful death cases against insurance companies that should see the inside of a courtroom before this ridiculous case. money makes you more important though… clearly.

    She should be filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the makers of her momma's hideous fur collared jacket. thats some wrongful death right there.
    love u JR's but the furs - not so much.

    Malpractice lawsuits are stupid unless you think there was some sort of corruption going on, which doesn't seem to be the case here. Complications in surgeries happen all the time, unfortunately. Medicine isn't exact, that's why they call it PRACTICING medicine. I'm truly sorry that Joan died, but unfortunately, all surgeries are risky, especially as you age.

    There's always a risk when having surgery, and Joan was verrry old, and had been under the knife a number of times. Although I am sorry Joan is dead, I hope Melissa does not get a dime, mainly because she had the evidence burnt.

    It's all about money when it comes to the jews. If she was actually interested in learning the cause of death, she would have had an autopsy done.

    She gets 20 million to settle

    Aren't the 100 million she inherits from her mother enough?
    Greedy biatch.

    I wonder why she did not have an autopsy done. My mother died at a fairly early age (68) and wanted to have an autopsy done but my Dad would not consent and IMO she was taken to a substandard hospital.
    I wish Melissa the best, and hope she can find peace eventually, losing a mother is hard.

    Years ago a friend of mine was an OR nurse. The nurses, drs would make fun of patients in so many ways that are wrong. Of course the patient is knocked out so they don't have a clue what is going on. They would play with their fat, make fun of their looks, etc.etc.etc. so how does anyone know what was going on in that operating room? It was alleged one dr. took a selfie. What else? I don't blame Melissa one bit. I wish her the best. It's hard to loose your mother. I was very close to mine and when she passed at the young age of 71 I was devastated. I miss her everyday and it's been 13 years.

    If she REALLY wanted to know what happened she would have allowed an autopsy. Now she is just looking at $$$s. As if mommy did not leave her enough. Take into account Joan put herself at risk OVER and OVER with ridiculous surgeries knowing she had a heart condition. It was bound to happen.
