As former “Grease” star Jeff Conaway lies comatose in a Los Angeles hospital, his ex-girlfriend is battling against his family who want to turn off his life support system. She is literally fighting for his life.
Vikki Lizzi dated Conaway on and off for years. She is now taking legal action to stop Jeff Conaway’s life support being removed as he lies in a persistent coma. The hospital have apparently assured Lizzi and her attorney that they would “hold off” with the removal because Lizzi claims she has the power of attorney over Conaway.
“Vikki has the power of attorney and also has a living trust from 2007 that names her as a guarantor of the trust,” a source close to Vicki Lizzi states. “The hospital has assured the attorney they won’t do anything until they re-read the trust.”
The family of Conaway had placed a restraining order against Lizzi on May 19. That has since been dropped. However, they are still said to hold “the healthcare power of attorney,” which complicates matters.
The relationship between Conaway and Lizzi has always been tumultuous, but Lizzi has been distress over th recent deterioration in Conaway’s condition. His comatose state was initially believed to be a prescription drugs overdose, accidental or otherwise. But now it has been diagnosed as pneumonia. He remains comatose, with little or no sign of improvement, but a source close to Vicki Lizzi says she “would never pull the plug, he is her best friend and soul mate.”
