Eddie Vedder and Chris Cornell‘s families have had tension since Cornell’s May 2017 death, with things escalating a few days ago when Chris’ teenage daughter Toni unloaded on Eddie’s wife Jill Vedder for not supporting her mother Vicky. Lily Cornell Silver, Chris’ daughter with ex-wife Susan Silver, is very close to the Vedder family, and is involved in litigation with Vicky and Chris’ estate over college and medical payments.
Vicky Cornell filed a lawsuit against Soundgarden over royalties and their unreleased new album last week, and while Jill Vedder hasn’t addressed it directly outside of leaving a heart comment to Matt Cameron, she posted about her charity work in the last few days.
Jill wrote about her charity work, “I’m very excited to soon be traveling to India with @everymomcounts to meet with Nazdeek, EMCs partner to learn more about the work they are doing in Delhi and Assam .. learn more about them below … and be sure to follow @everymomcounts on Instagram to learn more about the work being doing around the world to ensure every woman’s right to a safe pregnancy and childbirth.
Repost @everymomcounts. Despite the fact that India’s constitution guarantees maternal health and survival as a #humanright, maternal health in the country is one of the worst in the world—an estimated 44,000 women and girls die annually from pregnancy and childbirth related causes.
Since 2014, Every Mother Counts has worked with Nazdeek to ensure mothers’ rights are fulfilled and respected. Founded by three female human rights lawyers, Nazdeek trains women in Delhi and Assam to understand their constitutional rights, and to identify, monitor, and document health, sanitation, and nutrition service violations. They also train activists and lawyers.
This approach works. On #humanrightsday and every day, we’re proud to support their critical work on behalf of mothers in hard-to-reach communities. #standup4humanrights.” Matt Cameron revealed how Soundgarden lost their Instagram account to Vicky Cornell a few days ago.
