Initial reports stated that the Fountains of Wayne co-founder was in a medically induced coma, but his lawyer has since clarified that he’s just heavily sedated.
AceShowbiz – Fountains of Wayne co-founder Adam Schlesinger is fighting for his life in a New York hospital after contracting the coronavirus, Covid-19.
The Emmy and Grammy Award winner and one-time Oscar-nominee’s hospitalisation was revealed on Twitter on Tuesday (31Mar20) by a fan account of his current band, Ivy.
However, contrary to the claim made by the account that Schlesinger is in a medically induced coma, his lawyer of 25 years Josh Grier said that the musician is just heavily sedated and on a ventilator.
“He’s very sick and is heavily sedated, as are all people on ventilators, but no one has used the word ‘coma’ to me,” Grier said.
The lawyer confirmed Schlesinger has been in an Upstate New York hospital for over a week and is receiving excellent medical care, but that doctors are reluctant to make predictions about those suffering from the new disease, as much about it remains unknown.
