We bet a lot of parents with teens can relate to this story!
In an interview with People Magazine, Melissa Rivers revealed how her 15-year-old son Cooper Endicott is coping with Joan Rivers' death now that he's a full-fledged teenager. Coop was just 13-years-old when his grandmother passed away in 2014 from a surgery gone wrong.

A "weapon"? Sounds interesting…
The 48-year-old went on to explain that Cooper will try to use the sad situation to his advantage, saying:

So much cuteness!
Melissa Rivers and son Cooper Endicott made us melt into a puddle of goo at the 57th annual Grammys in Los Angeles on Sunday.
Melissa looked flawlessly sophisticated in an embellished blazer and wide-leg slacks by Roberto Cavalli, while Cooper was impossibly handsome in a classic suit.
The 11-year-old is going to grow up to break A LOT of hearts! He's already so perfectly poised!
The two were there in honor of the late Joan Rivers' second Grammy nomination ever — for the spoken word album Diary of a Mad Diva.
We're totally rooting for Joan to take this one home!
