MANHATTAN (CelebrityAccess) The widow of Glenn Frey has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against New York City’s Mount Sinai Hospital because of its alleged poor treatment of the Eagles founder, who died at the hospital in January 2016.
Cindy Frey claims Mount Sinai and gastroenterologist Steven Itzkowitz failed to properly treat Glenn’s ulcerative colitis and did not properly treat the infection among other accusations. Frey died of complications from acute ulcerative colitis, pneumonia and rheumatoid arthritis, according to a statement by the band. The suit seeks unspecified damages, according to Reuters, and was filed shortly before the expiration of New York’s two-year statue of limitations for such lawsuits.
Cindy Frey, who had three children with the singer and was married to him for 26 years, is the sole heir to Glenn’s fortune, as reported by TMZ in November.
Frey was under the car of Itzkowitz from October to November 2015, according to the complaint and the gastroenterologist and hospital caused Glenn to be rendered “sick, sore, lame and disabled.”
Mount Sinai spokeswoman Lucia Lee told Reuters the hospital does not comment on pending litigation and an attorney for Cindy Frey declined to comment elaborate on the lawsuit.
