According to TMZ, Joan Rivers's personal doctor, Gwen Korovin, has denied CNN's allegations that she took a selfie in the operating room while the 81-year-old was under anesthesia, saying that the network's source is "making up lies." Korovin also denied performing the unauthorized biopsy that allegedly caused Rivers to go in to cardiac arrest. TMZ claims that it "pressed to find out if she performed some other procedure" but did not receive an answer.
