Melissa Rivers Shares “Perfect Day” Throwback Photo of Joan Rivers and Her Son — See the Pic


Melissa Rivers shared a touching throwback photo of her late mother Joan Rivers on WhoSay on Thursday, Oct. 23.

In the sweet snap, a younger looking Joan pushed Melissa's son Cooper on a swing in a beautiful outdoor space. "Connecticut, 2004. Mom + Cooper = BFFs… A perfect day. #TBT," the Fashion Police producer captioned the picture.

The post comes after Melissa shared with followers she continues to be "saddened by our tragic loss," following the release of her mom's autopsy results. According to the New York City Medical Examiner's Office, the comedienne's cause of death resulted from surgery complications — the Fashion Police host died from low blood oxygen to the brain during her unplanned endoscopy.

Us Weekly previously reported Melissa has inherited the bulk of Joan's estate, including $75 million in cash and her $35 million condo. However, a source tells Us that receiving Joan's estate is obviously "no consolation for losing her mother so soon."
