SHARE Joni Mitchell aneurysm confirmed; inability to speak is denied

After much speculation, Joni Mitchell’s friend and conservator has confirmed the famous folk singer did suffer a brain aneurysm that required her hospitalization in March. However Leslie Morris has denied that Mitchell is unable to speak — a story told to the Huffington Post by fellow musician David Crosby.

Morris acknowledged the aneurysm Sunday in a posting on Mitchell’s personal website. It was the first significant report on the singer’s health in the months since she was transported to a hospital in Los Angeles.

Morris also said that not only was Mitchell speaking, but speaking well, as she recovers in his L.A.-area home. She currently is unable to walk, but it’s hoped that ability will return and that she will 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.
