Evidence That Chris Cornell’s Widow Acquired With Lawyer Revealed, Examiner Cancels Meeting

CBS Detroit is reporting: “Sources at the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s office confirmed to WWJ Newsradio 950 that Vicky Cornell arrived in Detroit last Friday with an entertainment attorney. They had a meeting scheduled with the Medical Examiner, but were so late that the Examiner wasn’t able to keep the appointment. The widow was able to pick up slides of microscopic tissue that were taken as evidence in the case.”

The attorney that accompanied Vicky Cornell was Jeffrey L. Schulman, who works for Pasich LLP. According to the Pasich LLP website, Schulman specializes in insurance cases. “Jeffrey L. Schulman represents commercial and individual policyholders in complex insurance coverage matters including insurance broker liability, construction defect, product liability, director and officer, multimedia, asbestos, and first-party claims. He also handles a wide variety of substantial business/commercial litigation and contract disputes.

His clients include retailers, product manufacturers, construction and real estate companies, and private equity companies. Jeffrey has tried numerous jury and non-jury cases to verdict, routinely resolves commercial disputes by way of mediation and arbitration, and has recovered more than $100 million dollars over the course of his career for individual and corporate clients.” According to their website, Pasich LLP’s areas of expertise are: insurance advice and counseling, insurance recovery litigation and arbitration, international issues, insurance and risk transfer design, and commercial litigation.

The CBS Detroit article later states, “The ME source said Vicky Cornell has been questioning the Medical Examiner about the Ativan issue, regarding the possible effects on the singer’s state of mind — but that that’s just not the province of an ME.”

Chris Cornell’s widow Vicky arrived in Detroit last week to speak to the Medical Examiner about his cause of death. His death was ruled a suicide by hanging. This is the first time Vicky Cornell has returned to Detroit since her husband’s death in May.

The Blast reports, “Vicky believes her late husband’s death was not a suicide. She’s been very vocal on the matter, and in an interview this summer, she questioned the coroner’s quick call on his cause of death. She insisted Cornell was far from depressed, ‘didn’t want to die,’ and attributed his actions that night to prescription pills.

We’re told her reasoning for meeting with the coroner is to discuss details related to the Soundgarden singer’s death earlier this May.”

See a couple of photos below via The Blast. Since her husband Chris’ suicide in May, Vicky has insisted that Chris’ use of the prescription drug Ativan was a contributor to his death, and that he was not himself the night he died. She has raised awareness for addicts, as well as abused children and refugees through charity work.

    Nice new nose job Vicky. He wasn’t an addict, he committed suicide.

    • HippieChic61

      Empathy! Get some!

      • Renée Lynn

        Hey B, don’t come at me telling me what I need. Who the heck gets a nose job after her husband dies, she despicable. She couldn’t even be bothered to pick up the corpse at the morgues office or attend the cremation. She sent that crazy LR and the mad hatter until finally PC insisted on being there. And don’t tell me people get a nose job for other reason…. The only other reason she might have is she likely blew out her nose doing all that coke and I’m not talking Cola. Have a nice day hippie. No go smoke a fatty

        • HippieChic61

          So no empathy and not very informed? Again, people get nose surgery for more reasons than cosmetic. Now go away with your crazy made up narrative about a family you dont know.

          • Renée Lynn

            Not one ounce of empathy for that grifter ever, she’s a self serving little T***. Her coke habit and the fact that she’s trying to get rid of the ugly are the only reasons to have a nose job. Go away hippie, you know less then I do. Minions… they’re everywhere. Nobody has respect for Vicky, she’s lucky to have you as a fellow grifter.

          • HippieChic61

            LOL Do you read back to yourself what you write? You and your secret inside info…lol you sound like an 8th grade groupie!

          • Kay B

            You just sound like an eighth grader…lol…..lol….lol….lol…..lol…..lol……lol…..

          • Sarah

            No, the groupies were the ones living in his house.

          • Renée Lynn

            You must have smoked to much it’s starting to mess with your mind.

          • HippieChic61

            That would be “too”! You must not have smoked enough..lol

          • Renée Lynn

            Who care’s minion.

          • Sarah

            Yes, people get surgery for sinuses and other medical issues. However, that’s now how this particular situation appears; particularly since the widow altered the appearance of the nose so significantly. Not many people at all would get surgery on their nose and alter their appearance so quickly after their husband committed suicide with her on the other end. It seems callous and reprehensible. It certainly makes a statement about her “love” for him. No need for grieving when you can try and doll yourself up for any chance at celebrity. I smell desperation, HippieChic61.

          • UnrulyEva

            oh give me a freaking break. this woman and her family are tasteless. she didn’t even go to get her husband’s body. and now she is at the ME’s office? and that weird mother of hers? and i am tired of hearing about the Ativan. it did not kill him, he was depressed and died by suicide. and the nose job??? parading her little girl on stage right after her father died? Vicky is awful. Is she trying to get a movie gig like Courtney Love?

        • Eleanor

          Wow….

      • Sarah

        I have lots of empathy for people who are actually grieving. I’ve got plenty of empathy for those suffering from mental illness (except psychotics/sociopaths, which is likely not treatable). There is no empathy for a widow who, instead of grieving, parties on her husband’s grave, paints a very incomplete picture of here husband’s legacy, and runs out to get a nose job right after her husband commits suicide. No, no empathy for that.

        • Eleanor

          Did she party on her husband’s grave??

  • ChelleT

    I don’t understand…..if you are that concerned 1) wouldn’t you have gone sooner to discuss this matter with the ME, and 2) wouldn’t you make it a point to be on time? It doesn’t come across as someone who is trying to explore why he committed suicide…..it comes across as more having to do with money. Disgusting and sad.

    • Kay B

      Totally agree. Be on time for F’s sake. Least you could do.

      • Cristiann

        Honestly, what could possibly make a person late for something as important as this?? :/

        • HippieChic61

          The same things that make any of us late….Delayed flight, traffic issues, detour…

          • makingconnections

            Oh, look who’s back.
            Why bother with publicity at this point Clare? There’s too much water under the bridge. Every bit of information digs a bigger hole.

          • HippieChic61

            my name is actually Dee Dee 🙂

          • makingconnections

            O.K. Dee Dee, do you agree that with each effort at publicity, Vicky and her mother dig a bigger hole for themselves?

          • HippieChic61

            I dont believe there is any hole to dig. What? In the court of public opinion? Big deal, fans are attacking her on the internet. And Her life goes on. The real one, not the fabricated ramblings of rabid fans. His mother and brother have already made statement to stop the conspiracy theory bs, yet the rhetoric continues..its sad that their wishes werent respected since they are living it and know truths that the public doesnt.Its sad that all this will be out there for his kids to read. I wonder what they will think of his fans and how they treated their mom.

          • makingconnections

            I’m glad that you answered by question because I have never, and still do not understand why Vicki Cornell and her mother insist on being in the public eye.They have been determined to keep themselves front and center, even when the response from fans and the public is poor. They can click off social media but they’re still digging a hole. Yes, the sad fact is the children possibly will suffer by their foolishness. Vicky’s first communications to the public after Chris Cornell’s death were descriptions of his immense love for her, the story of their courtship and marriage. It was not the time to hear such personal stuff and she showed us who she was and what she wanted. It went from there to People Magazine and then to their little daughter performing on TV, all within months of Chris’s death. You may see this as acceptable…for me it’s extremely off-putting and she’s tampered with the memory of Chris Cornell. This is what all of this talk is about by his fans. We have stated time and again that it’s time to let him be honoured in death. They have taken something precious from him at this time. They’ve taken up the energy in the room so to speak with their self-centeredness. They will never be celebrities no matter how much fund raising they do. Their motives will always be considered questionable after all the self serving statements they’ve made. By the way, many people work for social justice and raise money for important causes and they do it quietly, not expecting accolades or People Magazine articles in return. Maybe it’s as simple and the mother and daughter having very poor values. No wonder so many are saying “poor Chris”.

          • HippieChic61

            Everyone grieves differently. “To love a man enough to help him, you have to forfeit the warm, self-righteous glow that comes from judging.”

          • makingconnections

            You’re quoting someone…it would be good to let me know who that is.
            I’m not bathing in any self-righteous glow, but at this point I don’t feel like giving up the social justice issue that Chris Cornell’s death has become. We are all learning about the games people will play, how disrespectful they will be even when their loved one has died. It’s outrageous that Chris Cornell’s wife seems to think that being married to him gives her the right to carry on this drama that is backfiring on her. It’s foolish to not see that the plan isn’t working and it’s awful that you don’t see you could be hurting your children. We don’t want to hear from her…..she’s silly and also harmful. We want Chris Cornell to have dignity in death.

          • Kay B

            Jesus Christ enough with the passive bullshit quotes. The world is not all flowers and rainbows you fucking hippie. Go take a shower and eat some bark. “If you love something, set it free. If it doesn’t come back hunt it down and kill it.”

          • makingconnections

            You never cease to amaze me Kay B…people like me try to express ourselves as we are outraged and then you sweep it all aside and deal with it…I’m laughing and very glad for your ability.

          • Kay B

            Well it might not be conventional but Hippie is like a nipping Chihuahua. Being friendly and forgiving and the benefit of the doubt…it’s annoying after awhile. I’d rather be honest. Some people are so perky and have these great quotes. Shove it.

          • makingconnections

            No, she doesn’t deserve much from us. She’s always been Clare as far as I’m concerned and it’s a stupid quote anyway. It doesn’t make any sense in this conversation as well. I’d say Miss Vicky is bathing in the warm glow of judging more than anyone. Anyway, you put a smile on my face, taking charge as you did.

          • makingconnections

            Kay, this is sort of off-topic but connects with talking about setting boundaries, sort of. You’ve probably not heard of Blue Rodeo, a Canadian band that I love. They have a song called “Trust Yourself” that has always been an inspiration to me, especially when I’m struggling over various relationships. I so wish Chris Cornell could have grabbed on to the message of this song at the end…crazy to wish such things, but music is so powerful. Please give it a listen.

          • Olga Stewart

            I know of the band Blue Rodeo. :).

            I think the song of theirs that has always stuck with me is this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMt0skVPC0o

            Despite the fact that the band members are at a funeral in this video, I feel comfort from knowing that even if you are alone that somehow you still have your place in the world. And there is both a peace and comfort in both knowing that and it still being a part of your life.

            When my dad passed away, I was both heartbroken and quite upset. And even though he isn’t a part of my life physically, he is always a part of my heart. Also, while I felt alone after his passing, I felt like I could draw strength from that knowing that it would get me through. And also, knowing that I have felt alone more times in my life than I care to count.

            I don’t know if I’m explaining myself properly. But that is just the way I see it. And the above mentioned song seems to capture the feeling far better than I could ever explain it.

          • makingconnections

            Yes, I like this song too. This band doesn’t necessarily rock out, but they can touch your heart. Sorry for your loss, believe me I know how hard it is to move through grief. I think the sense of isolation is very hard on people–whenever you’re feeling something so hurtful that you can’t imagine others struggle as much, you can get into trouble. I heard at one time that the people that have the most difficult time getting over depression are those that feel trapped.

          • Olga Stewart

            Thank you.

          • Kay B

            I can see how that song would apply. Take a glance at the lyrics of another Canadian band called Moist. I have always liked their song “Push.” These lyrics could also apply.
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vIWQhlUWWRQ

          • makingconnections

            Geez, I forgot about Moist and this song. It’s so strong and full of passion.
            Today I watched some videos with Chris Cornell..”Call Me A Dog” has always been one of my favorites. I haven’t had the heart to watch him sing for weeks and finally there’s been a break in the noise from the women and it was good but painful to see him again. His gift was amazing– such a natural and beautiful musician. I hope we can honour him properly now and that they’ll stay silent.

          • Olga Stewart

            Oh Kay but you crack me up. Ha ha!

          • Eleanor

            Take a shower and eat some bark. LOL

          • Sarah

            I know not one single human being that would party at a cemetery, live on sm, and get a nose job in the grieving phase. Not one single other person except Vicky. Yep, I’m judging.

          • UnrulyEva

            omg Sarah, i just mentioned the nose job above, as well. Saw that when she went to Greece on one of her trips.

          • Lisa Mitchell

            She partied at the cemetery? What is sm?

          • UnrulyEva

            lets not forget the nose job.

          • Eleanor

            Can’t believe that…Wow!

          • Eleanor

            Preach!!

          • Lisa Mitchell

            Totally agree…very narcissistic. I saw a Twitter post where she said something like what I wouldn’t give to have one more day of him looking at me adoringly. Seriously ??!!! It is all about HER. Incredibly self centered

          • makingconnections

            I don’t think she’s ever going to stop the desperate reaching out for the spotlight. I’ve asked myself many times why it matters to me at all and I think perhaps we all have someone in our lives (in our families probably) who drives us nuts with that sort of behaviour, and she’s touching a nerve so to speak.

          • Sarah

            The way the widow is behaving, it’s far more likely they will become very disenchanted with their mom. Let’s be realistic here, HippieChic61.

          • Renée Lynn

            It’s no conspiracy that Chris’ tapped out on her. In doing the research it’s very clear why. That family is despicable, I’d buy granny and icky an exercise band if it would shut them the F up.

          • Eleanor

            Granny and Icky?? LOL..Were Chris and Vicky going through a divorce?

          • Kay B

            No that’s your stage name. Get it right Clare.

          • HippieChic61

            Do you not realize how stupid you sound saying ridiculous shit like that?

          • makingconnections

            Trying to have a conversation with you, a person with blinders on, drives one to a certain point of frustration. Luckily for us we have Kay B who can break through and say what needs to be said. It sounded perfect to me, all things considered!

          • Kay B

            Wow you make so many God damn excuses for this woman.

          • Sarah

            Yes, it’s like she’s part of Vicky’s PR team. Go figure.

          • makingconnections

            She is.

          • Sarah

            I couldn’t agree more. What a pathetic bunch.

          • HippieChic61

            Wow, you act like you were there and have facts. lol

          • Sarah

            Pot meet kettle.

          • Sarah

            Or in Vicky’s case, making sure her makeup is just right and someone is in place to get a picture.

      • ChelleT

        Exactly especially if it involves the love of your life.

      • Eleanor

        Kay, I truly enjoy your commentary. 🙂

        • Kay B

          Thank you.

    • Nicola

      The time to “investigate” would have been IMMEDIATELY after his death, not FIVE months later. This reeks of a money grab. She could not even be bothered to go there to retrieve the body and just sent him off to be cremated immediately knowing full well that would make future exhumation impossible.

      • Cathy

        She’s probably having troubles getting the insurance payout

        • Will Ross

          Bingo!

        • Lisa Mitchell

          Yep!

  • azur Rienne

    Just realized what she is doing. I thought she was in denial but she must have taken out life insurance on him that doesn’t pay out for suicide.

    • nomad

      Life insurance isn’t usually that complex. Generally, once two to three years has passed after the person first purchases the insurance policy, it will pay the death benefit regardless of the circumstance, including suicide. The reason for the waiting period is so people don’t run out and buy life insurance after they’ve been diagnosed with cancer and so forth.

      It is possible she is building some kind of case to sue whoever manufactures or prescribed the Ativan. However, another possibility is that she is trying to build a case to file a claim with whoever insured the tour that he was on and didn’t complete due to his death. Touring acts take out insurance policies to cover cancellations due to illness, etc.

      • fine.

        Bumping in here if you don’t mind but won’t it be hard to sue anyone over his Ativan use? Chris has a long history of depression so I feel like it could be really hard for them to blame his MH issues on Ativan.

        • nomad

          I would think it would be difficult to make a case against the manufacturer, but that doesn’t mean someone wouldn’t try to. They could be building a case against the physician who prescribed it citing Chris’ history of mental health issues & addiction. Those are just a few of the possibilities. All just speculation on my part.

      • Nicola

        I highly doubt an insurance company would issue a policy on CC that would cover suicide given his history of depression and addiction, especially a large policy (I am sure greedy wife would not be satisfied with anything but a huge payout). I have 2 life insurance policies (one purchased privately the second purchased thru a former employer) Neither cover death by suicide. IF CC did have a policy which paid out on suicides, then that would only serve to make his death look more suspicious

        • HippieChic61

          Contrary to popular myth very few life insurance policies dont pay out on suicide. Usually, this clause states that no death benefit will be paid if the insured commits suicide within two years of taking out a policy. Whenever an insured person replaces an existing life insurance policy with a new one, the time clock for the suicide clause is set back to zero and starts over again.

          • Sarah

            Studying up on this recently for any particulary reason, HippieChic61, or was this info you obtained from a lawyer?

          • HippieChic61

            I work at a law firm.

          • Sarah

            How is it you know so much about everything – law, suicides, cremation, grieving practices (ie, psychology), widows, rhinoplasty, etc…? Do you have an “S” on your chest and a cape too?

          • HippieChic61

            Ummm, because Ive lived? I work at a law firm, have dealt with multiple suicides in my life, my father was cremated, I majored in psychology , however didnt go into the field, and Ive had rhinoplasty. I guess since you’re here 24/7 arguing about a man you never met, you’ve missed out on a lot.

          • Sarah

            Wow, a real superhero in our midst, folks. Law, psychology and humble to boot. Thanks for joining us regular folk. Why are YOU still here 24/7? Again with the hypocrisy, HippieChic61.

          • Olga Stewart

            The last part of your post, Sarah?

            That is hilarious. *BG*

            The ‘S’ and ‘cape’ part, I Mean.

          • makingconnections

            No, not quite, you’re Clare…don’t get confused now.

          • Nicola

            If companies all paid out on suicides I suspect that in bad economic times there would be an uptick in suicides. Some might see it as a way to ease their families financial problems. In any case insurance companies are in business to make money and usually this involves fine print excluding certain causes of death or “pre-existing” conditions. As a mentioned, I have 2 generic policies from 2 different companies and neither covers suicide

        • Lisa Mitchell

          Agreed

    • Cathy

      Bingo

  • fine.

    Suicide is hard to understand but this is to much. The man looked miserable for the past year. It’s time to let him rest for once.

    • mypat623

      More than just the past year, quite a few years.

        But it became drastic the last few months.

      He declined. He looked terrible the last few months of his life. Underweight. Older. Drained. I can’t even look at The Promise video.

      • fine.

        Ya i literally bawl watching the promise video. He looked so unwell. People are lying if they say he looked okay. He was so far from okay

      • Cathy

        If you watch the very end of the video, he looks terrible and can barely speak. I thought he was going to cry

  • 183mn

    OMG…you people are cold and heartless. The poor woman lost the love of her life and has been dealing with the shock and grief. She has 2 children who are dealing with it also. Every photo I’ve seen of Chris showed him with a big happy smile. I think she’s totally right about the Ativan.

    • Christopher Salazar

      couldn’t agree more.. God you people all act like you know Vicky Cornell like the palm of your hands and she’s always been in it for the money.. Hell, If I lost my wife who was a millionaire, I’d make damn sure I was paid too, but that doesn’t mean all I ever wanted was money. People, Chris Cornell is dead.. It’s over and done with and it sucks so much, but shifting the blame to a woman who now is dealing with the loss of her husband and who has to help her kids get over this.. god you people are sad. Whining about Chris Cornell isn’t making him come back.. get a life!

      • ChelleT

        I respect your opinion but don’t you find it unusual that it’s nearly six months later and she’s now seeking answers? Isn’t it peculiar to get cosmetic surgery after your loved one has died? Money is the last thing I ever thought about when loved ones passed. And money is all the wife and her mother have talked about. Spending Chris’ money.

        • HippieChic61

          Im sure shes been seeking answers from day one. Just because this is the first public report of what shes digging into, doesnt mean she hasnt. Maybe the nose surgery wasnt cosmetic at all, maybe it was for breathing reasons and pre planned and delayed due to his death. See how assuming works?

          • Sarah

            No matter what, she had to have known how running out and getting a nose job when her husband just killed himself would look. Besides, even if she did have it pre-planned, any Dr. would reschedule to a later date given the circumstances. They would probably expect her to postpone. Your argument is quite thin. You’re spending so much time defending her; it’s as if you know her.

      • Kay B

        Have you been paying attention son?

      • Didi

        Sorry, but she and her mother are the ones dragging this situation out, by continuing to go on social media, you don’t hear Chesters wife, going on about her husbands death, out there on social media, making excuses as to why her husband took his own life. You are right we don’t know her, but actions speak louder than words, but in their case, the words are speaking just as loud.

        • Kay B

          I know Vicky and Talinda are friends but Talinda has got be thinking what the hell is with this mother hen?

          • Sarah

            Talinda is probably starting to think “Wtf did I get myself into here? Now I get was Chris was going through for the last 14 years.” She probably just doesn’t know how to extract herself w/o VK turning and becoming vindictive with her.

            Sorry for being a smart azz…Its just crazy how everyone assumes their own narrative. me included, its all we can do since we dont know them personally. I just choose to assume the best in people not the worst.( Unless its Khlozilla Kartrashian…lol…I assume the worst of her always!)
            I indeed did see all the greats as it was happening! Zeppelin, Zappa, The Who, The Dead, Sabbath…hundreds of shows.. Im in the Rock n Roll capital, Cleveland. We had, and to some degree still have a great music scene here.

        • Sarah

          Interestingly, after reading all the comments, it’s YOU who acts like you have inside knowledge.

      • Olga Stewart

        So you’re saying that if your millionaire wife passed away, you would want the money?

        I mean her passing wouldn’t mean more to you than getting the money?

        And that is what we are talking about in regards to Vicky’s treatment of Chris’s memory.

    • ChelleT

      Not cold and heartless. If it were me, I would have flown to Detroit ASAP to get some answers. I would have accompanied his body back to his final resting place. I certainly wouldn’t have considered a nose job in the whole grieving process. I think Chris was happy but then he was not. Look at the photos during his last few months and it’s plain as day that he was unhappy. I respectfully disagree with you on the Ativan monologue.

      • Judy Sharits-Johnsen

        One has to wait until toxicology reports come back. No point going to the M.E. before then. Also the M.E. may have ordered additional tests( just speculation on my part) and if so, that would take longer. To accompany the body back would do nothing. Who knows why she waited , or hired an attorney. Ativan could have contributed to his state of mind, according to Dr Drew( not a huge fan of his, but he knows a bit about the subject). Depression is difficult, especially to see that in older people who probably hide it well. It would be difficult to get him help, especially if he sounded ok to a doctor, and he probably has enough experience to do that. It’s a tough subject.

        • ChelleT

          With respect to accompanying the body, that’s been a sore subject for his fans….if it were the love of your life, you would expect one to want to be there. Who knows, they are an odd bunch.
          I agree that Chris, outwardly, appeared as though he was okay. But his appearance at the red carpet event where he seemed alarmingly frail was a concern. Just a sad circumstance all the way around.

          • Cristiann

            I can’t believe she wouldn’t accompany his body back home. Like, wow … I know maybe she was in shock and wanted to stay with the children but this is HER HUSBAND. The fact that she didn’t go back for him feels very wrong to me. Of course, I can’t be 100% sure of how I would react if I were in her shoes … I know I’m probably not being fair here but I honestly just don’t understand VK’s behavior. 🙁

          • HippieChic61

            Until youve had someone you love take their own life ….you just cant imagine!

          • Yak Tastic

            Guess what? You’re not the only person who has ever lost a loved one to suicide, okay? I have, too. And I can tell you this. If I love somebody and say I am going to be there for them through thick and thin, better or worse, I am. That includes the heartbreaking task of identifying a body. That includes the task of accompanying it to its final resting place. So don’t give me any of what you would do, because clearly, you aren’t me.

          • Kay B

            Again you have said this before. Stop mumbling. You aren’t the only fucking person to have a suicide in the family.

          • HippieChic61

            Looking at your comments seems you repeat yourself as well. funny how conversation works.

          • Sarah

            H-Y-P-O-C-R-I-T-E, HippieChic61. Telling people they are assuming things and here you are assuming she has no experience in suicide. You’re an expert on so many things, how DO you do it?

          • HippieChic61

            I dont spend every fukkin day on line arguing over a guy ive never met, so I guess while I was busy living you missed out on a lot.

          • Sarah

            Yet here you are. Again.

          • makingconnections

            I would imagine that Vicky Cornell was in shock and traumatized; however they often mention their Greek Orthodox faith. It surprises me that she wouldn’t have wanted a little time of prayer with his body at some stage before he was cremated. Any family that puts such value on baptisms surely would want some aspect of their religious tradition to be part of saying goodbye to Chris. I don’t mean to be judging them one way or the other. It’s just curious to me that the sacred was left out of his way of leaving within the Greek Orthodox family he was part of.

          • ChelleT

            Thank you I am not familiar with Greek Orthodox and their traditions. I do wonder why cremation was done so quickly if there were strong opinions about the cause of his passing

          • makingconnections

            I have so many questions about how his death was dealt with…I’m not Greek Orthodox myself but I know their traditions quite well. Vicky and Chris had a formal Church wedding…their children were baptized in the church and Chris was a godparent to a friend’s child. It could be that they were stepping away from the practice, but still, even if you have but one foot in the door, usually prayers are said to give the loved one a good sendoff so to speak. Their reasons for not doing that are personal of course, but it really seemed like everything was hurried along and not in a reverent way at all. The K family wasn’t in attendance at his cremation…the family asked Linda Ramone and her boyfriend to be there and that was it until Chris’s brother Peter insisted on attending. It all seems very strange.

          • Nicola

            Yeah, VK had to make arrangements for her People magazine interview and plan up the circus of a funeral she held. All this more important to her than a silly thing like saying goodbye to her husband or going to the scene of his death. Notice no tears there from her at the funeral or any other time since. But she has had PLENTY of time an energy to do interviews and make public appearances…..and go to the plastic surgeon.

          • Eleanor

            Yeah…no tears….weird to me.

          • Eleanor

            What the f” is with Linda R and this boyfriend?? So creepy…Peter to the rescue…Feel so bad for him that he had to deal with these lunatics. I’m assuming he has no contact with them especially since the MIL keeps bashing him..So f’n sad!!

          • Eleanor

            Was there no religious aspect to his passing??

          • HippieChic61

            Im sure she did want to be there, but maybe she stayed with their children rather than take them or leave them with someone. Unless youve walked in her shoes, having your spouse commit suicide in another city…far from home…having children to be strong for…having your mind completely blown over the shock …we really shouldnt be so judgmental!

          • makingconnections

            It’s not so much judging as it is not understanding. I’ve seen people “step up to the plate” in horrendous circumstances. So many people travel to the ends of the earth to just see the place where they lost a loved one. Yes, other’s can’t do it; however, the fact the Vicky managed to do a story in People Magazine and discuss her previous decorating plans with Chris tells us that she had some sort of energy happening. It was only weeks after his passing that she began trying to create Vicky Cornell, the celebrity.

          • Eleanor

            I thought the comment about the rug being delivered that he picked out was shallow. Idk

          • makingconnections

            I think it was mean to be really touching or some such thing….We were just an ordinary couple decorating our apartment, and now I must go on alone..

          • ChelleT

            For me personally I would want to be there and bring my loved one back.

          • HippieChic61

            As would I, but we don’t know what was happening so I’ll give the benefit of the doubt. I know all the scrambling that a family goes through when someone dies, can you imagine on top of that …it happened out of town, on a tour with business obligations, its not private as with most familes deaths, its national news, you have kids to comfort and help cope with a suicide… of a parent no less, something hard af for an adult to process much less a kid. I dunno, I just cant figure out the hate toward another human being when they are already dealing with loss, hurt and keeping it together with children in tow. Thats just me.

          • Kay B

            It is just you, you are right for once.

          • HippieChic61

            You must be about 16 years old. To actually believe you know more about a situation than the woman married to him, you’d have to be.

          • Sarah

            ….says the resident expert of grieving, cremations, and rhinoplasty.

          • HippieChic61

            Never said I was an expert. Its called wisdom that comes with age.

          • Sarah

            The way you’re spouting off about every. topic. here. you must be at least 105 yrs old using your logic.

          • Sarah

            HippieChic, you are coming off like a complete know it all. No need to spin your wheels trying to figure out the hate. Vicky is acting like ANYTHING but a grieving widow. The disdain for her is real, and it’s not going away. The more she puts herself in a spotlight, the more the disdain. That’s just me.

          • HippieChic61

            Like she cares? LOL you’ll still be here ranting and she’ll move on with her life. Youre a non factor hun!

          • Sarah

            She must care what people think or she wouldn’t have altered her nose. She’s done a lot that would make people think she cares.

          • Kay B

            Unless you have had someone commit suicide in your family….unless you have walked in her shoes…..unless……shad up already. Her actions of making everyone believe Chris loved her and all her other bullshit is obscene. Why does she have to continually prove he loved her? And her mother hen. Wtf is her deal? She has been posting shit that would make one believe she had a crush and was obsessed with this man. More widows would be acting privately. Look at Chester’s widow. She has shown class and admits the man was depressed.

          • HippieChic61

            Again you have said this before. Stop mumbling.

          • Sarah

            HippieChic61, the original PETE and REPEAT.

          • HippieChic61

            I just copied and pasted your reply to me over and over again.

          • Sarah

            Good one?? Ouch, you might need a nap.

          • Sarah

            You must be drunk. Again. I never said anything about mumbling. You’re confused from all the alcohol, dear.

          • Eleanor

            I will never get over that sick bitch of a MIL. Total evil!! I think she did have a crush on him…Very weird..Chester’s widow IS a total class act. Perhaps V should be taking notes.

          • Sarah

            Maybe she was too busy preparing her daughter to sing on national television to be with her husband. He can’t tour and make her more money, so why bother, right?

          • HippieChic61

            And you say I assume? yeah we all are assuming, since none of us were there.

          • Sarah

            There were people in the surrounding rooms. Bet they heard. 😉

          • Sarah

            You’re sure. How’s that?

          • HippieChic61

            The same way you’re so sure of your opinion.

          • Sarah

            Oh, so another hypocritical post while you’re telling everyone here they couldn’t possibly know certain things. Got it. Thanks.

        • Nicola

          UM NO the tox reports were out fairly quickly so that excuse does not fly. Normally a grieving spouse would want to accompany the body or AT LEAST show up for his cremation. She did neither. I can tell you if I lost my spouse under unexpected circumstances I would have been on the first plane there to see the scene for myself AND I would have hired the best experts I could afford. And VK could surely afford this. Dr Drew? give me a break. SO unprofessional he has made a career getting paid to comment on people who were NEVER his patients. He is all about money.
          There are plenty of variations in the story she has presented since he died. Looking at that plus her actions things don’t add up to her being the woman who just lost the love of her life.

          • HippieChic61

            Ive had more than one family member cremated and they dont allow you to be there. And until youve had someone you love commit suicide, as I have, stop saying what youd do because you cant even imagine the mind fuk and heart break it is!

          • makingconnections

            I know all of these comments make you crazy….but they come in reaction to a real effort to control the narrative since Chris Cornell died. I’ve often wondered if all of the effort to stay in the public eye has perhaps delayed the grieving process or been an effort to run from it. It’s always seemed to me that to privately grieve and stay close to your children rather than be on social media would have been a better choice…what do you think? I’ve also thought from the beginning that the effort to be famous could very quickly turn into being infamous. I believe that’s what’s happened to Vicky Cornell and her mother and they’d be very wise to retreat to a private life. This has been a horrible fiasco and they’ll never be trusted, so why the ongoing effort to create an image of themselves that the public doesn’t swallow? Most fans seem to feel that they’ve been unfair to Chris Cornell and been concerned about their own PR. There is no reason for them to expect those that admire Chris to admire them. Sooner or later they will have to face that fact.

          • Kay B

            I have had 3 suicides in my family. Quit talking like you are the only one. It’s pathetic.

            Kay B, I am so very sorry to hear about the famly members you have lost.

            And my thoughts are with you.

          • Kay B

            Thank you.

          • Olga Stewart

            You’re welcome.

          • Nicola

            Reportedly Linda Ramone and accessory were there for the cremation. I think the funeral home allows folks to be with the body up to a point but probably insurance regulations don’t allow for them into the area of the crematorium.

          • Sarah

            Now YOU’RE the one assuming by saying she hasn’t had a family member cremated. And while you cannot physically be in the room during the cremation, it certainly says something by not even bothering to be at the cemetery at the time. She didn’t pick up her “loving, adoring” husband’s body from Detroit, she didn’t attend the cremation. Speaks volumes whether you want it to or not. Pretty sure you won’t be changing minds here, keep on trying though…

          • HippieChic61

            You should look into why you’re so hateful towards someone you don’t know and who doesn’t know you exist. Its really weird.

          • Sarah

            She is tarnishing a legend’s legacy with her bullshit. I care. The odd man out here is you. Calling me weird is ironic.

      • Kay B

        Thank you.

      • HippieChic61

        Flying to Detroit before the ME could complete his report would have been a waste of time. It took me months to get answers from the ME regarding my brothers death. It would be nice if things worked the way we imagine, but they dont. We dont know that she didnt have breathing issues and the surgery was pre planned and delayed until after Chris’s death. Its hard not to have an opinion, I have mine as well. But we are just spectators in someone elses life.

        • ChelleT

          I am sorry to hear you had such a difficult time obtaining answers for your brother. True we are spectators regarding Chris’ passing and I do believe so many question and speculate because information from the family is somewhat vague. The timing of her surgery is just a bit off and I think that’s where so many people are put off by it.

          • HippieChic61

            It wasnt “difficult” its standard operational procedure, which a lot of posters here assume its an instant thing. It’s just not! Of course information from the family is vague, its not our business. The timing is off to us because, again we dont know her or the details, maybe it was a necessary surgery for breathing issues, but everyone hating on her, not you per say, but a lot of posters are bagging on her cosmetic procedure not factually knowing it was cosmetic. We are all hurting over losing Chris, THAT we can all agree on! I appreciate you having adult conversation and not name calling! 🙂

          • ChelleT

            Name calling isn’t my thing I enjoy reading different perspectives and respect others opinions. It’s a sensitive topic for me as a fan but no reason to hate on other who don’t agree with my take on things.

          • Sarah

            When you say “It wasn’t difficult”, it sounds like you were the one who went through it yourself, just sayin. Now is the time for you to come back and post that it was just an honest mistake. Oops. 😉

          • HippieChic61

            You are not in charge of their internet image nor Chris’s legacy. Id get a hobby or get outside and get some fresh air if I were you..lol Youre obsessed with a celeb and his widow that dont know you exist, its not healthy.

          • crowe711

            Back atcha heffa. 🙂

    • Donna Gosdantian

      If Vicky, truly had questions about root cause behind the “love of her life’s ” of death, why the rush for cremation ? Please, don’t even try to claim, the decision for the cremation, was made in haste, because Vicky wasn’t thinking clearly, due to her shock, and grief. It’s been 5 months of Vicky’s boorish behavior, and it’s just getting worse. Vicky, is only making things worse for herself, just by condoning her mother’s bullying tactics on social media, and her “team’s” laughable attempts at damage control. Even the people that once sympathized with Vicky, are thoroughly over it. I just don’t think having critical thinking skills, could, or should be called “cold,” and “heartless”.

      • HippieChic61

        Wow, you sure assume a lot! We dont know if she condones her mothers rantings….for all we know they’ve had multiple arguments over it…making assumptions and running with it as if its fact isnt very good “critical thinking skills” “Her team”? Ohhh, yes lol..anyone who doesnt bash on her.! You dont speak for all “those that once sympathized with her”, thinking you do would just be silly, especially for someone who brags about her critical thinking skills…lol

        • Sarah

          She clearly writes (helps her) with some of her mom’s posts, FFS. It’s becoming obvious. Those emoji’s only hide so much, HippieChic61.

          • Sarah

            It’s obvious

    • Nicola

      VK has brought ALL this on herself by her words and actions. She waits FIVE months to go to Detroit? She immediately cremated CC body, not even having the decency to attend herself. No tears at the funeral. Who is “cold”?????
      Oh, and all the “happy” photos you mention? What YEAR were they taken? The mother in law from hell is routinely posting VERY old photos to keep up the illusion of a happy marriage when in fact there is plenty of evidence that the marriage was anything but happy. And really who would be happy with that shrew and the omnipresent MIL? The toxicology report proves that he had a very low level of Ativan and he had been taking it for a long time so unusual side effects are not likely. Ativan did not cause his death, it is just a convenient scapegoat for VK and potentially a lawsuit for her to cash in on.

    • Yak Tastic

      He has a big happy smile because he didn’t know how badly they were using and abusing him. She could not have been grieving that hard, she got herself a brand new nose. She couldn’t bring herself to go get him and be present at his cremation. She didn’t love him. She loved the money and now she’s looking for more.

    • Olga Stewart

      If I were both cold and heartless, I wouldn’t care about this. It would mean nothing to me.

      But I am heartbroken both over Chris’s passing and how his wife and her family are tarnishing both his legacy and memory.

      And I’m not alone in feeling this.

      So I do care. I care a lot (especially since I’m an empath).

      Oh, and if you think those are happy faces that you see in the photos of the family at THE PROMISE premiere, then I would dread to know what you thought unhappy faces looked like.

    • Maria

      Oh spare me. Get the violins out.

  • pessimatic

    She wants to sue someone. Or, she’s trying to cash a life insurance policy and needs to mitigate the suicide clause. She brought a high dollar attorney for some reason? What ever the reason, I can’t imagine she needs the money. Suicide of a loved is hard to comprehend. But, Ativan didn’t kill Chris Cornell.

    • Nicola

      Sure she thinks she needs the money. She has a very very expensive lifestyle. Plastic surgery ain’t cheap. She has always been all about the money. CC worked like a dog to accommodate her “needs” I sure as hell did not see CC walking around with a wardrobe of Birkin bags. Before he met VK he lived a relatively conservative lifestyle for a rockstar. All the changes came with her. His clothes changed. The multiple houses. Her and her mother spent their time spending his money (VK even was so tacky as to Tweet about spending “HIS money”.

      • pessimatic

        I remember seeing Soundgarden in the early nineties. He was such a god back then. I look back at videos from post audioslave until he died. So very sad. You can see the progression of his demise. He deserved a sweet rocking away later in his life.

        • Cristiann

          I think he looked good during the Scream era and when Soundgarden reunited/released King Animal as well. It’s in the last year or two where he really started to look exhausted to me.

  • Jck

    WHAT drug relapse? Beginning with the tox screen, I have seen no evidence of one. He had nothing illicit in his system, no alcohol or opioids, & what he did take was either OTC or Rx within therapeutic doses. If you discount VC & her possee–& I do–no one in his very active public life has shared a single anecdote or hint of a relapse. And he worked a lot! What about the ‘signs’ of addiction she claims she missed? Name ONE! I don’t mean dishing intimate dirt; just a few generic 1-word behaviors..if you REALLY want to help others. For someone who questioned the ME, she was quick to throw her late husband’s judgement & sobriety under the bus, minus a hint of proof. This was not the suicide of someone without a plan. Clearly, his executive function was operative–so, no, sadly: he was not out of his mind. Every one of these gossip rags & clickbait sites that pushes her ‘story’ as gospel should be torched by his fans. In short, YOU suck!

    • Eleanor

      I still wonder if it was planned or an impulse decision

  • John the pumpking

    Whats going on here?

    • Kay B

      She is gearing up to sue for the Ativan he took. Which was in therapeutic ranges. I knew she would take this step before he was flown back to LA.

  • Kay B

    We knew she was going to try to sue big pharma days after this happened. She had to get a nose job first. And get her daughter into some studios. And get more Birkin bags. Get her daughter a voice coach…….first things first.

    • makingconnections

      –and her People magazine articles were and probably will be a huge focus to help her feel like somebody.

      • Kay B

        Burn.

    • Cristiann

      I must be blind as a bat because I can’t see any big difference in her appearance (she does look super thin though). If she did get a nose job, then … wow. Unless it was done for health reasons/breathing issues, I don’t understand how she could have thought doing such a thing would be appropriate. Like, I don’t have anything against people who get plastic surgery, but if I had just lost someone I loved … well, that would be the last thing on my mind right now.

      I think it’s a really bad idea to put Toni in the spotlight so soon after Chris’ death (especially since she’s still so young). It was one thing for her to sing with her dad, that was really sweet imo, but she should just be a kid right now and live in private.

    • Eleanor

      Her and her Birkins! Ridic!

  • summerwind5

    Sorry but Coroner’s job is to find cause of death. When you hang yourself it is cut and dry. She is barking up the wrong tree if she expects a different outcome by talking to Medical Examiner.
    Also, her time is no more valuable than Medical Examiner, rude of her to be late.

  • Cristiann

    Oh, honestly … I know people can spend YEARS in denial over the suicide of a loved one but this needs to stop already. She needs to stop with all this drug addict nonsense because there is absolutely no proof that Chris relapsed again. Meanwhile, all the evidence shows that he willingly took his own life, so clearly he was severely depressed. I know that’s an awful, horrifying thing to accept (because it means this could have been prevented) but it is the truth. He may have seemed “okay” to her, maybe VK thought he was just tired and didn’t worry about it much, but imo Chris did not look well in the last few months of his life. He seemed so exhausted and unwell during the promotion for The Promise. He did not look like a healthy man to me at all. At least not when you compare it to how he looked in previous years.

    Why is this woman so determined to believe that this was all just because of an anxiety med?? It is dangerous to make accusations like that when you have no evidence in your case to support it. VK can believe that he relapsed again and that she just “didn’t see the signs”, but she can’t believe that he was struggling with depression (even though he had a history of it and discussed it openly) without her noticing? Sure, meds like that can have terrible side effects … in some cases they can make your depression worse, but I think the feelings of depression have to already be there in order for it to get worse. Yeah, it was probably not a good idea for a recovering alcoholic/addict to start taking a medication like that, but Chris had severe anxiety and he needed to take something to help that. This kind of medicine helps a lot of people and saves more lives than it takes. I’m just so frustrated with this woman and the narrative she has created since his death.

    • makingconnections

      I can’t bear the commenters who add that they had a friend who freaked out on Ativan….that’s not exactly a blind study for God’s sake. Quite possibly the friend would have had a much more terrible episode if they hadn’t had the Ativan.

      • Cristiann

        Exactly. Many need these medications in order to be able to function like a ‘normal’ person. It helps a lot of people with serious conditions live better and longer, so comments like the ones VK has been making are really harmful. She is not a doctor and therefore should not be saying these things.

  • Kay B

    I’m curious about the nose job. Who is she trying to look “good” for? This is odd behavior after you loose a husband.

    • Cathy

      She’s on the prowl if she doesn’t have someone already lined up

    • Nicola

      She probably realizes she looks like hell, especially for her age. She is back on the market no doubt trying to snare an even wealthier man. I don’t know if she smokes or if the bad aging is due to sun damage? or stress from GUILT….. but she is far younger than CC but looks older than he did. Her new nose is not going to solve the problem. She is ugly on the INSIDE

      • Kay B

        I think she does like her sun. I’m sure it is stress too but that sun is a killer. I put SPF on every day even when it snows. I’m 40 but most people think I am 23. Stay out of the sun and wear protection! You might look like a vampire but at least you won’t look old.

    • HippieChic61

      LOL, People get nose surgery for reasons other than cosmetic. But that wouldnt fit all the hateful commentary i guess.

      • crowe711

        Doesn’t usually include minimizing nostrils and getting the tip clipped.Maybe she got the package deal.

        • HippieChic61

          Have you had rhinoplasty surgery? You must have or how would you know what it included, silly me! I have because of a deviated septum and guess what, while they had me under they did in fact straighten the bridge and actually fixed a scar.

          • crowe711

            “while they had me under they did in fact straighten the bridge and actually fixed a scar” = cosmetic surgery.

          • HippieChic61

            Exactly! Proving that YES when you get a required surgery to correct a problem ( ie: deviated septum for those not following along) they do in fact do some cosmetic at the same procedure.

          • Kay B

            So she just happened to get a deviated septum now? After her husband is dead and she is “single?” And meeting with voice coaches and probably other singers? She just happened to want to fix her septum now? It is not a condition that comes on like a cold. If you had one you should know this.

          • HippieChic61

            “Again you have said this before. Stop mumbling.” I love using your reply 🙂

            ^^ Speaking of acting like a teenager, HippieChic61…

          • crowe711

            Don’t even waste your time. She spends her days trolling and inserting her commentary on celebrity twitter accounts.

          • Olga Stewart

            Which is why I have her blocked.

            I have better things to do with my time than to trade barbs with a ‘Lucille’ (if you watch THE WALKING DEAD, then you will know what I’m referring to).

          • Sarah

            Normal people do not grieve by getting their nose done. Postponing it would have been a wiser choice. The choice was made, and these are the consequences of that choice. She gets the side-eye for all the ways she’s been grieving. ALL the ways.

          • HippieChic61

            You are of zero consequence to her. I see you know how “normal people grieve” yet you called me out as some kind of know it all when i gave my opinion on how people grieve. Are you wearing your cape’?

          • Sarah

            Originality is clearly not your strong suit.

          • Eleanor

            Agreed!

          • Yak Tastic

            who gets it weeks after their husband hangs himself? Give your head a shake.

          • Kay B

            I have been in many rhinoplasty surgeries. I know what it includes. A deviated septum is to make breathing easier and help with sleep and so you can breathe through both nostrils. If you get your nose straightened and fix a scar that is a different surgery. You would have noticed a separate bill. They did that so you wouldn’t have to be put under again. They often add a surgery to one that is necessary for cosmetic reasons.

          • HippieChic61

            No kidding, Again you have said this before. Stop mumbling.

          • Sarah

            did you just cut and paste you very last comment? Unoriginal as usual, I see.

          • HippieChic61

            Im getting bored with your entertainment I guess.

          • Sarah

            Yet still here you are.

          • Sarah

            Then you in fact got a nose job. Hate to break it to you, but you got a nose job by altering your face. And Vicky could have easily postponed that surgery. Not a smart PR move. Whoever is (or was) helping her and TK with PR is/was not doing a very good job. And Vicky, pretending to be a PR person should have known better. For every action there is a reaction. Vicky chose her actions of her own free will, and now she is getting the reaction she deserves. Have a nice night.

      • Kay B

        I know this I work in surgery. If she had a deviated septum or something of that nature it is quite coincidental she would get surgery for it now. Most people who get that surgery can’t breathe correctly and can have sleep problems. Get over it she had a nose job.

        • HippieChic61

          Ya dont say, Again you have said this before. Stop mumbling.

          • Sarah

            yawn.

          • Olga Stewart

            Sarah, you and Kay B need to take it on the road.

            I’m laughing like anything at all of the comments that you are making here. Ha ha!

  • makingconnections

    What is never mentioned is the probability that Chris Cornell’s mental illness had become a bigger problem for him in the last while. Maybe he’d developed a more serious condition but didn’t want to worry anyone. Maybe he was frightened. So many people have mentioned his demeanor and weight loss. It is completely possible that he kept his problems to himself. It’s also possible that his wife was aware of his struggles but thought he could handle it. It’s difficult to believe that a child that struggles and misses a whole year of school because of emotional illness wouldn’t have been prescribed Ativan at various times in his life….I believe he was familiar with the drug and was quite likely trying to use it responsibly…I don’t believe it was a drug new to Chris’s life in the past year. His migraine medication would have been necessary as well and probably totally inadequate to treat his pain if he was touring and coping with those terrible sick headaches. I will always feel badly that he’s being judged so harshly by his own wife over drugs that probably kept him functioning as well and as long as he did. I hope the hereafter allows us complete peace and escape from judgements.

    • Kay B

      He had nodules on his prostate according to his autopsy. These of course could be totally benign but maybe he was dealing with the beginnings of prostate cancer. Fifty two is a good age for that and he was thin.

      • makingconnections

        Anything is possible but he definitely seemed unwell….there are so many conditions that we can get, like adrenal depletion, depression becoming a more complicated mental illness, prostate cancer which I understand can effect the emotions in early states as hormones are effected, thyroid illness can cause depression. Uh oh…here’s an example of a little bit if knowledge being a dangerous thing. I don’t know what I’m talking about!

        • Kay B

          My comment above goes with what you stated.

          • makingconnections

            It does….we will never know so much. Regarding the subject of this article, we probably know more than we want to know. It’s good to know when someone is trying to manipulate you, on the other hand.

      • Cristiann

        Oh god, I hope not … I don’t want to imagine him going through more pain than he already was. Still, physical health problems can contribute to depression as well, so it is definitely possible. Chris really did look thin to me in those few months, but (correct me if I’m wrong here) the autopsy seemed to show that, for a 52 year old man, he appeared to be in decent physical shape.

        Unless more proof comes forward, I will continue to believe that his death had more to do with mental health issues. We’ll probably never know what exactly was causing him so much pain … what was it that made him feel like things were never going to get better. I’m just sorry that he felt alone and that he didn’t get help/treatment.

        • Kay B

          I do believe his disheveled look and thinness had to do with his depression and growing stress. It is very sad to think he felt all alone knowing Vicky was probably ignoring his feelings. From what someone posted earlier, it looked like she ignored his performances on stage too.

      • Eleanor

        Wow…

    • Nicola

      It is easier for her to blame the Ativan than to publicly admit the marriage was sour. Some say CC wanted a divorce. You can be sure she would NEVER let him go easily. Not her cash cow. Add the stress of living with the omnipresent MIL from hell. I pity CC living with these women. Why would he be happy? VK joked about spending his money on Twitter. She had a wardrobe of very expensive purses that cost more than many homes. Before he met her he lived a relatively conservative lifestyle but VK wanted multiple homes, etc etc…..and even her mother admits that VK got whatever she wanted. She was reportedly very controlling and would not leave him alone least he fall for another woman. I can not imagine the stress he was under. Who knows what was said in that last phone call. Only 2 people and one is DEAD and the other is dishonest at best

      • Kay B

        Word.

      • Eleanor

        Well said! I would really like to know if in fact their marriage was going sour. It would explain everything….

    • Eleanor

      He needed to rest and take it easy! So obvious….Ugh..

  • Didi

    Enough is enough, Vicky and her Mother are really showing their true colours now! If she was so sure it was the Ativan, then why cremate him so quickly? I’ve been on Ativan for 25+ years and at a way, higher dose than him, it’s never impaired my thinking, it’s just taken the edge off my anxiety. The thing that disturbs me is that the mother goes on and on, about how Chris idolized Vicky and how loving he was, even her! Why does Vickys mother keep on about that, we don’t care. Depression doesn’t have a face, not that Vicky saw much of her husbands face, as he worked 24/7, he’d had enough of the fight, that was going on within his head. I hope the two of them realize, that they are coming across as media, attention seeking, greedy women. 6 months later and a nose job, she’s wanting to look like she cares? BS, she didn’t even go and be with him, after he died, until the funeral, it looked like Chester was the one, that was finding it really hard. Well I hope they give all this site up and let Chris ret in peace

  • Cathy

    Gotta get that life insurance!!!

    Is this the widow trying to cash her dead husband’s life insurance after getting a nose job? Hi Vicky. Chris committed suicide. You know this as you were on the other side of the phone listening on. Do you sleep well at night?

      Assume much? Do you sleep well at night knowing youre fukking with a woman who just lost her husband? Classless pos!

        Do you sleep well knowing you’re trolling and condoning the behavior of an abusive family who drove a man to kill himself?

            Your buddy Vicky is ultimately the reason Chris is no longer with us.

            Good one.

            A snarky bitch is what Vicky was on the red carpet during a business event for Chris. What that poor man had to endure from her.

          • makingconnections

            She speaks for a whole community of people here who want Chris Cornell to be left with his dignity in death…people who are concerned that his memory is being tampered with in a terrible way by a family that is almost hard to imagine. They need to take their hands off his life. He left them.

      • † Kill Soft Grunge †

        Not assuming minion. Stating what’s there evident to anyone who has a brain. Speaking of classless POS, why do you talk about yourself like that?

      • Sarah

        Yeah, cuz she’s grieving so hard by dancing on graves and getting a nose job. Wouldn’t want to put any stress on the clearly grieving widow. C’mon, who you trying to kid, HippieChic61?

  • Breath and a Scream

    “Arrived in Detroit last Friday with an entertainment attorney.” An entertainment attorney?? That seems odd. I can’t imagine Chris wasn’t a multi-millionaire, so just how much money does this chick need? Those poor kids. Lily seems quite normal but I wonder just how damaged the younger ones are.

    • HippieChic61

      Why would someone in the entertainment business showing up with an entertainment business lawyer be odd? LOL And what do you base “Lily seems quite normal” on? A few pics on the internet? Or do you know her and her mom ?

      • crowe711

          Pppppfffffttttt.

        • HippieChic61

          Yeah, except Ive been here for years, long before Chris departed. Why is it that if someone has a differing opinion, they must be associated with the family? Maybe youre young, I dont know why an adult would think like that…its funny.

      • Yak Tastic

        It’s odd because he’s NOT an entertainment lawyer, he is an INSURANCE lawyer. Big difference there.

        • HippieChic61

          Ah the article said entertainment lawyer…Ok, so yeah she took an insurance attorney to obtain the information for a law suit. Big deal who didnt think that was going to happen?

          • Sarah

            You’re right with the “who didn’t think that was going to happen”. We see her scrambling to pull in as much dough as possible, even disregarding his very apparent depression. You know, the depression he wrote and sang about for decades?

      • Sarah

        Who are you referring to being in the entertainment business?? The way you wrote it, it looks like you mean Vicky. I know you cannot mean that, so…

    • makingconnections

      It’s as though the woman Chris married and her mother have somehow managed to interface their ongoing existence on this earth over Chris Cornell’s life now that he’s left us. I fear that when we hear his name in the future, the attention-seeking wife and her mother will be who we remember. For that reason, and for their own mental health, I really believe they’d be wise to completely back off and stay out of the public eye. What they’ve done and continue to do with their behaviour is absolutely horrible and so disrespectful to the man they say they love.

      • Olga Stewart

        Honestly, I think he was a saint for having been around them as long as he was.

        But on that particular night it just got to be too much for him.

        And whether she wants to face it or not, Vicky will have to live with this for the rest of her life.

        And unless she deals with It, it will most likely really affect her down the road.

        • makingconnections

          It’s difficult to imagine how a person gets to the point of wanting to be in the public eye to the degree that these two are. It’s as though they’ve been bewitched by the idea of “celebrity”. When I think of them putting their little girl on stage only months after losing her father, I consider that they have a strange value system. They are their own worst enemies.

      • Eleanor

        They are despicable human beings for going after those close to Chris. Why Vicky wouldn’t shut down that lunatic of a MIL is insane to me!!!

  • Will Ross

    Please, she has stated he had been on Ativan for over a year. If she was so concerned she’d have investigated the side effects of it a year ago and not now. I say let her go ahead and fight this. Stupid bitch doesn’t realize it opens herself wide for investigation as well. She may have to answer some hard questions on what she actually said to him that night to make him decide killing himself was better than living. Anything to take the focus and blame off of herself. Can’t wait. She is going to be her own downfall. It will be poetic justice.

    • HippieChic61

      Her filing suit doesn’t really open her up to anything. It’s not going to matter what she said that night. Thats not how that works. This isnt a criminal case against her, in which case you’d be right about cross examination.

      • Sarah

        Those K’s sure do like those lawsuits, don’t they? The more she brings attention to herself, the more people are going to look into the shady biz that was happening at the Foundation. Wonder why there are still ongoing issues with being able to donate? Also, what happened to VK donating the $100k to the music therapy program? It appears now she is getting others to help fund it? That certainly wasn’t the “The Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation is donating” message she gave initially. The bait and switches that go on within that family are astounding.

    • Olga Stewart

      Yak Tastic, as I said above, if Vicky doesn’t deal with this then this is going to snowball on her.
