September 5, 2014 Melissa Rivers, Joan Rivers

After keeping her mother, Joan Rivers, on life support for a few days, Melissa Rivers agreed to take her mother off life support.

The comedian was 81 years old.

In a statement, Melissa Rivers revealed, "It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my mother. She passed peacefully at 1:17 p.m. surrounded by family and close friends. My son and I would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff of Mount Sinai Hospital for the amazing care they provided for my mother."

She continued: "Cooper and I have found ourselves humbled by the outpouring of love, support, and prayers we have received from around the world. They have been heard and appreciated. My mother's greatest joy in life was to make people laugh. Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon."

The Fashion Police host had been rushed to hospital after complications with a throat surgery, and had since then been on life support.

Our condolences to the family, may her soul rest in peace.
