Joni Mitchell is in a coma and unresponsive: report BY Elizabeth Vanmetre NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Tuesday, April 28, 2015, 6:32 PM Joni Mitchell is reportedly in a coma after being found unconscious in her L.A. home in March. Both sides now. Joni Mitchell was reportedly “unconscious and unable to make any responses,” according to documents obtained by TMZ. The “Big Yellow Taxi” singer’s close friend, Leslie Morris, filed for conservatorship over the artist, the site first reported, after she was found unconscious at her home on March 31. The document says the performer has no close family, which is why Morris is trying to take on the role. Following the report's release, however, the so-called official website for Mitchell claimed the songstress is "alert and she has her full senses." “A full recovery is expected,” according to the website, which has no affiliation with Mitchell, her management or her record company. “The document obtained by a certain media outlet simply gives her longtime friend Leslie Morris the authority - in the absence of 24-hour doctor care - to make care decisions for Joni once she leaves the hospital.” The statement also says Mitchell is still in the hospital but is “a strong-willed woman and is nowhere near giving up the fight.” The singer was hospitalized earlier this spring after being rushed from her Los Angeles home — but reportedly became responsive again on the way. Although the reasons behind Mitchell’s medical emergency are still unclear, the Grammy Award-winning singer has had a list of medical problems, including a rare disease in which she experiences a crawling and biting sensation on her skin. The Canadian performer is set to be presented with the SFJAZZ Lifetime Achievement Award on May 8, for her influence on musicians over the years.
