Jeff Conaway is brain dead, the actor’s rep confirms to Gossip Cop.

And while the family says it “will not have a statement at this time” about reports claiming Conaway will be taken off life support in the near future, an insider tells Gossip Cop that since there’s no brain function — and nothing has changed over the past 48 hours — it’s likely his breathing tube will be removed.

The “Taxi” and Grease star was hospitalized earlier this month after what’s been described as a drug overdose.

Conaway has been in a coma since then.

In 2008, Conaway appeared on “Celebrity Rehab,” where he was treated for addictions to cocaine, alcohol and painkillers.
