Melissa Rivers has inherited the bulk of her late mother Joan Rivers' estate, a source tells Us Weekly. The news comes just days after it was confirmed that the comedian trailblazer and E! Fashion Police host's cause of death last month was from surgery complications.

Melissa will inherit $75 million in cash and Joan's French-inspired $35 million condo on New York's Upper East Side, the insider tells Us. Her son Cooper, 13, has received his own bequest.

Melissa briefly opened up following her mother's passing on Oct. 16 after the New York City Medical Examiner's Officer revealed Joan's cause of death. "We continue to be saddened by our tragic loss," she tweeted. "No further comment at this time."

Receiving Joan's estate also hasn't brought much closure. The source tells Us: "It's no consolation for losing her mother so soon." Read Melissa's thoughts on mourning Joan.
