Famously outspoken and outrageous comedienne Joan Rivers is receiving treatment in New York's Mount Sinai hospital, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.

Rivers suffered complications after her breathing stopped during vocal cord surgery. Her condition was critical but has mercifully been upgraded to 'stable'.

Joan's daughter Melissa Rivers released the following heartfelt statement:

I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother. She is resting comfortably and is with our family. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

Joan Rivers may have offended people with her recent comments on Palestine, but she deserves the same respect as anyone during her time in Hospital.

Hopefully, Rivers will be up on her feet again soon - and probably making outrageous jokes about the whole thing!
