Why Kathy Griffin is suddenly bald

Posted: Updated:

By Lisa Respers France CNN

(CNN) -- Kathy Griffin is once again attracting attention because of a head -- but this time it's her own.

The embattled comic -- who came under fire in May for a controversial photo shoot in which she held a fake, bloody head resembling that of President Donald Trump -- has shaved her head bald.

On Monday, writer Yashar Ali tweeted photos of Griffin with her new look.

"In solidarity with her sister, who is going through chemo, @kathygriffin shaved her head," the tweet read. "Donate to @AmericanCancer."

In one of the photos, Griffin is joined by her mother, Maggie Griffin.

The elder Griffin retweeted Ali's tweet and wrote "My daughter Kathleen Mary is a wonderful human being."

The comedienne is one of five Griffin children and in 2014 her brother Gary died of cancer.

"Our last real conversation, w my brother I loved so much, was just a few days go when I got him this signed picture from his idol, @JoeWalsh," Griffin wrote in 2014 in an Instagram tribute to her brother. "He loved the Eagles, 70s rock, The Chicago White Sox and the Xavier "muskies"... Oh & he was funny as sh*t."
