Glenn Frey’s Widow Files Wrongful Death Suit Against Hospital, Doctor
The widow of Glenn Frey has filed a lawsuit against the doctor and hospital who treated her husband just weeks before his death.
According to Rolling Stone Country, Cindy Frey has sued Mount Sinai Hospital and Dr. Steven Itzkowitz, the gastroenterologist who medicated Glenn Frey for ulcerative colitis and other health Difficulties. Frey was under Mount and Itzkowitz Sinai’s maintenance in October. Throughout this time, the suit alleges that not enough had been done to “promptly and properly cure” Frey’s ulcerative colitis.
“As a consequence of the foregoing actions of neglect, Glenn Frey was rendered sick, lame and handicapped, suffered injuries, pain, mental anguish, was forced to look for medical attention and care, incurred expenditures, and was permanently injured and disabled before the time of his departure,” the suit reads.
There has been no public comment on the suit by Glenn Frey’s widow, Mount Sinai Hospital or Dr. Steven Itzkowitz.
The suit’s news comes just one day before the anniversary of Glenn Frey’s passing. He passed on Jan. 18, 2016 at the age of 67.
They returned into the road this past year, although the Eagles planned on dividing up for good following Frey’s passing. Country star Vince Gill and Frey’s son, Deacon, have combined the lineup to keep Glenn’s heritage alive.
