Jeff Conaway To Be Taken Off Life Support

|

We are sad to hear that Taxi actor Jeff Conaway’s life support system will be shut off today, according to a source reporting to RadarOnline. The star of our adolescent dreams as Kenickie in Grease had been put in a medically induced coma after entering the hospital May 11. “Doctors advised the family that Jeff has had no brain function since he was brought into the hospital,” the source said. “The feeding tube has already been removed. The ventilator which is breathing for Jeff, will be removed sometime this afternoon.” Dr. Drew Pinsky has said publicly that the star was battling pneumonia and sepsis, which contributed to his coma. Conaway’s girlfriend Vikki Lizzi, who joined him in his battle with substance addiction as seen on Celebrity Rehab, was reportedly served with a restraining order preventing her from visiting Conaway in the hospital; Lizzi contested the restraining order, filed by Conaway’s sister Carla Sherve.
