Rock Icon’s Widow Files Wrongful Death Lawsuit

The widow of Eagles guitarist Glenn Frey sued Mount Sinai Hospital Tuesday, claiming that a GI doctor failed to properly treat the rock icon’s fatal stomach ailment. Cindy Frey filed the lawsuit in Manhattan Supreme Court just two days before the second anniversary of her late husband’s death at age 67.

She charged that gastroenterologist Steven Itzkowitz botched the treatment of the musician’s ulcerative colitis between Oct. 19, 2015, and November 2015. Itzkowitz and the hospital failed to properly treat the inflammatory bowel disease, assess respiratory issues, diagnose and treat infection or promptly hospitalize Frey, the wrongful death suit alleges.

Since approximately 2000, Frey suffered from rheumatoid arthritis, which affected various joints of his body. The medication that he was prescribed to control the disease eventually led to colitis and pneumonia, and in November 2015, the Eagles announced that they were postponing their appearance at the Kennedy Center Honors as Frey required surgery for intestinal problems and a lengthy recovery period. Following surgery, he was placed in a medically-induced coma at Columbia University Medical Center. Frey died there on January 18, 2016 at the age of 67 from complications of rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis, and pneumonia, while recovering from gastrointestinal tract surgery. Medications for rheumatoid arthritis or ulcerative colitis can compromise the immune system’s ability to fight off pneumonia.

        Gosh, not enough time in the day here but certainly VK played a huge role in the divorce suit and subsequent suits that went on ad nauseum for years against Susan Silver. Chris had no history of this type behavior prior to his involvement with VK.
        When it comes to lawsuits, VK is often too on the receiving end, primarily for non payment. I just saw 4 more civil cases involving Columbia University, Bergdorff Goodman, and an interior design firm in FL. I am sure you can find more if you took the time. If predictions are correct, there will be more trouble regarding her “charity” Money often buys her family good enough lawyers to get out of whatever trouble, such as when her brother skated on the woman he MURDERED …… but someday KARMA.

          Calling someone “lawsuit happy” means they are notorious for filing lawsuits.

          Not someone being sued themselves, not referencing the legit lawsuit their husband filed , not making up bs about their charity, and certainly has nothing to do with her brothers past!
          Did you not understand what “lawsuit happy” meant?LOL

            Not making up BA about her charity, it is all there in publicly posted legal documents. And VK threatens to sue folks often as a bullying tactic to get them to do what she wants. It is again on record on SM where she has done this publicly. The lawsuits that went on endlessly against SS were instigated somewhere, wasn’t CC normal modus operendi to carry on like that. It wasn’t just one lawsuit. She involved others.

            “it is all there in publicly posted legal documents. ”
            Actually , No it isnt all there, hence why so many are using the half information to attack her. They dont understand that ALL the info isnt available to them so they draw a conclusion on half the info.
