Chris Cornell’s Widow Reacts To Insane ‘Conspiracy Theorists’

Chris Cornell’s widow Vicky, who has dealt with disgusting harassment and threats from people online since the death of her husband, discussed conspiracy theorists in a recent Twitter exchange.

Someone tweeted to Vicky, “Yes! ATIVAN did NOT cause his death. It IMPAIRED his thinking, personality, suicidal ideation. He was NOT coherent to make the right choices. As a REGISTERED NURSE X26 YRS, I know this about ATIVAN. I’m so sick of trolls questioning Vicky. LEAVE HER ALONE.”

Vicky wrote back, “Thank you so right and I will no longer be answering trolls and conspiracy theorists. Too much energy and oddly the one that was typing away all about my husband wasn’t following either him, Soundgarden, Temple or Audioslave….. odd for a ‘fan.'”

A fan recently tweeted to Vicky about Cornell’s new Johnny Cash collaboration “You Never Knew My Mind.” The fan said, “You can hear in his voice that he aspired to make it something Johnny would have approved of, and no doubt he did. I love that these two lyrical geniuses gave each other the ultimate musician’s compliment by covering each other’s songs. Thinking of YOU today Vicky..❤🙏”

Vicky responded, “How I hope he can hear me , ‘Yes my love he’s so proud!'”

Vicky Cornell, wife of iconic singer, songwriter and Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog and Audioslave front man Chris Cornell, recently joined the Advisory Board at the Addiction Policy Forum. As a member of the Advisory Board, Vicky will be joining former Drug Czar General Barry McCaffrey and former Members of Congress Alan Mollohan and Frank Guinta.

    Gee but I wonder where the conspiracy theories could have come from, huh?

    **Rolls eyes.**

  • suz

    from what i’ve read, she wrote all those tweets.

    Does this nurse know of depression? There are some dumb nurses out there, I know I work with some. She is missing the point. We get Ativan alters your state. That is not why Chris died.

    • Lovely Nurse

      Yes I do understand. I have a son that suffers with depression. My mother now deceased, suffered with depression and was in Psychiatric ward most of my childhood and I myself suffer from depression I’m only opening up about this because I get what depression is. Its genetic in my family.

      • Olga Stewart

        I am very sorry to hear about what both you and your son deal with.

        And also, I’m very sorry about the loss of your Mom.

        My thoughts are with both you and your son.

        • Lovely Nurse

          Thank You, so kind of you!

          • Olga Stewart

            You’re most welcome.

            I also suffer from depression.

            Along with social phobia, panic attacks, and OCD.

            So I know how difficult it can be to deal with such things.

            But for me, it’s just both putting one foot in front of the other and taking it a day at a time.

          • Lovely Nurse

            My thoughts are with you as well. All we can do is take on day or even one hour at a time. You are so right. I do rely on antidepressants to help me through. Despite depression, I put my heart into nursing to help me stay above the water and occupied. And, helping my son in anyway that I can. I thank you for pouring your heart out on how you suffer as well. Thank You!

          • Olga Stewart

            You’re most welcome and thank you kindly. :).

      • Kay B

        Then you have to understand how depressed Chris was. I have had 3 suicides in my family all from depression/bipolar. Ativan helped him commit suicide that I agree with. Have you seen the tox or autopsy report? The police report?

        • Lovely Nurse

          Yes I’ve seen both. The Ativan was WNL in his toxicology report.

        • Lovely Nurse

          Chris did suffer with depression in his teens and early adult life. He turned his depressive thoughts into music. Isn’t that what Grunge music is? I think Grunge is extremely dark music, which makes it a very unique Genre of music. I do feel he was happy in his life with Vicky and his children. But, we all have our opinions. People can be so nasty about all of this, and its pointless, because it wont bring Chris Cornell back. It just causes anger and rage.

          • Kay B

            I understand. There is rage coming from both sides. Our opinion is different but we are both in the medical field and work with many drugs. I get where you are coming from.

      • Kay B

        Let me clarify my statement below. I think Ativan made it easier for Chris to commit suicide that night. I don’t think he would call to have his TV fixed, then lock 2 doors, then fasten a band with a metal carabiner and hang himself if he didn’t know what he was doing under the spell of Ativan. I have depression/bipolar. I have been in that state with that exact drug. I have attempted suicide 3 times. Ativan made it easier to say F it. But I knew I wanted to swallow a bunch of pills among other things. And ironically it was over a relationship I was in. Because my mate did not understand my depression. I feel for you and your family. But I do believe Chris was not happy with his last phone call to Vicky that night. And that set the tone.

        • Michael C

          If Ativan makes it easier to say f— it, then Ativan can also make it easier to say ‘things can get better, I’ll reach out to someone who can help’ Seems to me that you think Ativan makes it easier to only do bad things, when in reality the drug is benzodiazepene, and that class of drugs is largley anti-anxiety medication. The overwhelming majority of people taking Ativan haven’t committed suicide. By the way, I hope you find a way to true happiness, and find relied from your depression/bipolar

          • Kay B

            No I don’t think it only makes it easier to do bad things. Quite the opposite. Perhaps I should have used different wording. I think Ativan to a certain point make Chris’ nerves calm down so that he could go through the suicide. I think he knew he was hanging himself. I don’t think Ativan is responsible for that. I am simply saying Ativan made him tolerate the idea of suicide. Like in the Civil War when a solider would be getting his limb sawed off they had him shoot back some moonshine. It made the situation somewhat more tolerable to go through and calmed them down. But they knew damn well what was happening. I know my benzos. I have been on them most of my adult life. I know the classification of drugs I work in medical field. But thanks for the crash course.

          • Michael C

            Crash course was in using the right wording. You mention you should have used better wording. Kinda hard to follow now that you mention it

          • Kay B

            Yes and I made myself clear. Next time I will consult you when I free think.

          • Michael C

            Okay, my email is stermanaerials@gmail.com

        • Lovely Nurse

          Absolutely, he was not himself at all on his last phone call with Vicky. There is a photo of him, on stage that night, and he looks like a totally different person. Not sure if you saw it. He was definitely not the Chris Cornell we all knew in that photo and in the concert as well. He was angry as well as he was mad at the ear ins not working etc. Maybe the Ativan through him over the edge. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a060006e0899ae3b7036f8c892c96f16d001acd74eba7c465469ccdf48a74454.jpg

          • Kay B

            This is a telling picture. I can respect you think Ativan threw him over the edge. I think his conversations with Vicky before and after this concert threw him over the edge. Like I said he was angry at her that night. He was trying to get her attention by flipping off the lights in the condo from his phone. He got into an argument with her and that is why she told the bodyguard to get help. She knew it was an emergency. He wasn’t out of it enough to lock 2 doors, fasten the band to the mountain climbing hook and shove it in the door. To me that is someone who is angry and wants out. Anyway, thanks for the picture and your opinion.

          • Olga Stewart

            Did you see what his face looked like on the right side?

            It reminded me of a skull.

            So I find that particular photo to be quite eerie.

        • Lovely Nurse

          I’m sorry for you’re sufferings as well. You should be proud of yourself being able to maintain yourself in Nursing, as I’m proud of myself too!

          • Kay B

            I am on an organ transplant team. I help harvest organs and bone/tissue. But I also do trauma surgery. You should be proud to be a nurse. You seem like a very smart one. I just find bright nurses can be few and far between. I guess that is my problem though. I expect my organ team to take their job seriously and do it well.

      • Michael C

        I find that although depression can be genetic, it can be caused by environment, as well. It can be a learned behavior/mentality. My mother was/is a very depressed person. Growing up, I was, too. When I moved out of my parents’ house, I found that being away from her, I was the happiest and most carefree I had ever been. Sometimes just being around a severely depressed person can cause depression. Especially parent/child

        • Lovely Nurse

          Yes for sure. Environment, loss, and genetics all play a role in depression.

      I do rely on antidepressants. I don’t take Benzo’s. Doctors in Canada are veering away from Benzo’s due to the addictive properties of them. As well as too many unwanted side effects.

      • Olga Stewart

        I take two different meds.

        And they have helped a lot.

        As has seeing my counsellor.

        But there are times when I still will feel depressed.

        So I find it’s always there, just underneath the surface.

        By the way, what part of Canada are you from?

        I live in Alberta.

        And there is another Canadian on here that you will probably come across. Her username is makingconnections.

        She’s good people. :).

        • makingconnections

          Thanks Olga…you’re good people too.

          • Olga Stewart

            You’re most welcome and thank you kindly. :).

  • Lovely Nurse

    I do believe Chris Cornell loved his children so much! He talked about them so much and there are so many photos, interviews etc over the years right up until he passed, that “his babies” and his wife changed his way he wrote his songs. The Promise is quite recent and I watched a few interviews he did 30 days before his death. He discussed how he it weighed in on him about what these genocide victims would have gone through. He felt a connection, a fear of what if he could not protect his wife or his children if that was happening to them. I cant see him leaving his kids like that. They were his everything. This is why I feel Ativan is closely linked to his suicide. Its just my thoughts. We all have opinions.

    • makingconnections

      Yes, we all have opinions.

      Mine is that it’s very simplistic to think that Ativan caused Chris Cornell’s suicide in any way. He gave many, many interviews and yes, those concerning “The Promise” showed a very compassionate man doing what he could to help. We can never be in his mind though–no one can. During interviews he could have been feeling something completely different than he was expressing. He had many PR advisers….many.

      It’s sad that people think that depression and suicide mean lack of love for his family. You can love people and yet get into a rage at your partner and if you’re depressed, anxious and frustrated, you can do what many men before you have done in the same situation. Suicide is so often connected with relationships issues.

      • Olga Stewart

        Ah, so you two Canadians have met then. :).

        • makingconnections

          No never, why do you say that Olga?

          • Olga Stewart

            I meant you met each other on this site.

            Sorry for the confusion.

        • makingconnections

          I just reread my post and I didn’t mean to imply that Chris Cornell wasn’t sincere about the compassion he felt for the refugees. It’s just that he could have been having a difficult time coping at that time and yet still cared about his family. I don’t doubt his sincerity. I do doubt that most of the gushy, flowery posts towards the end of his life were made by him…in my mind, that’s where PR came into it.

  • Maryam

    There is no conspiracy, it’s Vicky and her lies from the moment Chris passed away. She kept changing her story from day one and we will never know what they spoke about that night. Why is that woman even on a advisory board for addiction when according to her she missed signs of addiction which is bullshit and she even said it herself doing her interviews recently on tv. Unless she’s lying about him taking so many pills in a week and then more in 9 days. Why didn’t he try to commit suicide then, that’s way more pills then what he took after the concert. She just makes herself look stupid everytime she opens her mouth. What really bothered me was the fake ass crying that she did. No tears from her at all. Nice nose job too she had done. She’s just ridiculous.

    • Olga Stewart

      And we have to suffer her.

      In some ways, that is worse.

      Though, I can’t even imagine what it must have been like for Chris.

  • PF

    I’m so tried of Vicky and her bullshit. Chris was genetically hardwired to have a leaning towards anxiety and a level of baseline depression. Just , listen to his lyrics throughout his career. Benzos don’t predominantly make ppl top themselves. And I seriously doubt that he was prescribed Atvian as a sleeping aid. I wish someone would stuff a damn birkin over that woman’s head !!
    My heart goes out to Cornell’s kids- I wish them well.

    • Olga Stewart

      The ‘birkin over the head part’ had me laughing like anything. :).
