Joni Mitchell's conservator Leslie Morris acknowledged the singer had an aneurysm in a statement posted on Mitchell's website on Sunday, providing the first significant details on her health status in the months since an ambulance was sent to her Los Angeles house to take her to the hospital.
In the post, Mitchell's friend and conservator revealed it was an aneurysm that sent the folk singer to the hospital in March.
Morris denied recent reports that Mitchell is unable to communicate, writing that the famed singer is speaking — and speaking well — while recovering at home. She's unable to walk, Morris claimed in the message Mitchell is expected to walk again soon and make a full recovery.
Morris was appointed Mitchell's conservator in May when a judge decided Mitchell couldn't make health care decisions for herself and had no relatives who could serve as conservator.
Mitchell is a rock Hall-of-Famer who has won eight Grammies.
