Songwriter Adam Schlesinger, best known for co-founding Fountains of Wayne, has been hospitalized due to the coronavirus, but has not been placed in a medically induced coma as suggested elsewhere.

She added that while Schlesinger "is in critical condition", he is improving and she is "cautiously optimistic" about his recovery.

It was initially reported that the 52-year-old Emmy and Grammy victor, who is also a founding member of the indie pop bands Ivy and Tinted Windows, was in a medically induced coma after contracting the potentially deadly bug, but Schlesinger's longtime lawyer denied that. Although initially reported to be in a medically induced coma, later reports have questioned that claim. Grier said that while he obviously can't go visit Schlesinger, the doctor reports he's received have not once used the term "coma", but rather stated that the musician is heavily sedated, as is necessary to be on a ventilator. In addition to Ivy, the musician co-founded the band Tinted Windows.

Schlesinger has been nominated for a number of awards, including Oscars, Tonys, Grammys and a total of 10 Emmy nominations. He also scored a primetime Emmy for outstanding original music and lyrics of the song "If I had the Time" in 2013, according to his IMDB page. Schlesinger won a Grammy in the best comedy album category for his contributions to A Stephen Colbert Christmas.
