Chris Cornell’s Family Reveal Why They’re Really Suing Doctor For Death


Chris Cornell’s widow Vicky recently filed a lawsuit, with her children Christopher and Toni also named as plaintiffs, against Dr. Robert Koblin. Vicky Cornell alleges that Koblin irresponsibly prescribed Ativan to Chris, and that it contributed to his death. Vicky made her first public comments about the lawsuit in Twitter conversations with fans, and she revealed her true goal on reforming the medical industry through the lawsuit.

A fan named Suzan tweeted Vicky, “I just wanted to tell you I’m so proud of you. Never give up. Make it where that Dr can’t do this to another family. Sending all my prayers, hugs and well wishes to you and your family.”

Vicky responded, “I’m going to continue until rules and laws change all doctors are accountable and I will not stop until addiction is mandatory curriculum in all medical schools . #loudlove #NeverGiveUp ?”

A fan named Veronica tweeted Vicky, “Vicki I just noticed the law suit. I am a Registered Nurse. There is no reason a cardiologist should prescribe Ambien.”

“I put Ambien I meant Ativan. My hands are shaking so bad. Sue that crooked doctor I love you, you are handling this with grace and your kids you are just doing everything right!! Loud Love Vicki. Chris passed and you were his woman!”

Vicky responded, “Thank you for love and support. No one should have to lose a loved one like this . My children want their father and I want my husband back . It’s time for change – we have lost too many ….#loudlove”

A fan named Mark tweeted Vicky, “Seriously… @vickycornell has been nothing but an extension of the light that her husband shared with this world and we’re lucky to have her willingness to share his legacy with us. Thank you, Vicky. Ignore the bullshit. We love you. ??”

Vicky responded, “Thank you and I expect nothing from any of you. I’m grateful you are all here for me and my children and you lift us but the biggest gift you give us is your love for Chris. Thank you because nothing lifts us more than that!”

Sylvia tweeted Vicky, “We love you Vicky ❤️
We are with you!

Vicky responded, “Thank you loudest love to you. You all help me so much- you all are the voice for my husband and we need you, all of you more than you know! You lift us through your love for him . And we love him so much that’s all we need to come together. Always and forever for @chriscornell.”

A fan named Rick tweeted Vicky, “Words of wisdom worth more than gold. Great support Tweet!”

Vicky responded, “The outpouring of love and support since Thursday is incredible . You are all amazing ! Thank you. I don’t really hear the crazies they are insignificant number of people and the same ones with multiple accounts . What matters is all of you ! Real fans, real love ! Thank you?”

  • P.S.

    Vicky says, “I’m going to continue until rules and laws change all doctors are accountable and I will not stop until addiction is mandatory curriculum in all medical schools.”

    It’s called Pharmacology. Every school of medicine, nursing and others, have to complete extensive Pharmacology training in order to get a license to practice medicine.

    So, yeah…that already exists.

      Dr. Robert Koblin is a cardiologist. Why was he prescribing these kinds of drugs?
      You should Not ever Combine Barbiturates and Benzos!

      Ellie, Do you go bash The Presley estate for promoting Elvis STILL TO THIS DAY!?
      How about EVERY other dead rock stars wife? I’d love to see you pull this crap with Mrs. Bowie! LOLOL

      • ellie

        Since David Bowie died, I do not see is wife plastering herself OR their child all over the media bootlegging their loved ones music to make a buck. Mrs Bowie has class..Mrs Cornell does not!

        • HippieChic61

          Ms. Bowie does indeed market him. She released “No Plan ” after his passing.

          She does indeed post photos of their child and her accomplishments.

    ~This lawsuit is about money …wanting it & getting it pure and simple, nothing else. No lesson learned, not about making anything right.

  • Jay Valente

    Well….. since she couldn’t get the life insurance and all……

    In a way I’m glad Chris doesn’t have to deal with this shit anymore. He’s been complaining about it for years in his songs.

    Hopefully you are at peace Chris.
