Performer Liza Minnelli A Close Friend Says She Was “Forced” to Use a Wheelchair At the Oscars
A longtime colleague has claimed that Liza Minnelli was “forced” to appear in a wheelchair at last month’s Oscars.

Feinstein stated on Tuesday’s episode of The Jess Cagle Show on SiriusXM: “She only agreed to attend at the Oscars if she would be in a director’s chair, since she’s been experiencing back pain.”
She avoided going outside because “I don’t want others to see me limping,” as he put it. “You know, I want to look well,” she remarked. No one should be concerned about me.
The best picture award for Coda was presented by Liza Minnelli and Lady Gaga, bringing a calm conclusion to a night that had been disrupted by Will Smith slapping Chris Rock on stage an hour earlier.
According to Feinstein, it was this interruption that caused the organisers to make a last-minute alteration to Minnelli’s schedule.
Feinstein claims that, minutes before her performance, a stage manager told her that, instead of sitting in a director’s chair, she would be using a wheelchair.
