Joan Rivers' daughter is offloading the comedy icon's palatial New York apartment, just five months after her tragic death.

The veteran funnywoman, 81, died in September (14), following a botched throat operation, and she left her luxury penthouse condominium to her only child, Melissa.

The four-bedroom property, which the late star had called home for 25 years, was placed on the market on Monday (09Feb15) with a price tag of $28 million (£17.5 million).

The move comes a day after Joan Rivers was posthumously honoured with her first Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Album for her memoir, Diary of a Mad Diva.
