Xana la Fuente, the girlfriend of late legendary Mother Love Bone and Malfunkshun singer Andy Wood, has asked that Chris Cornell’s widow drop her lawsuit against Dr. Robert Koblin over the late Soundgarden singer’s death.

Xana tweeted Vicky, “With respect I must say this I lived with Chris. He spoke of suicide a lot~ we WERE CLOSE. People hide their younger more immature self later in life but fundamentally they are the same person. His lyrics can be brought into court. Do not do this. Let him rest.”

Chris Cornell and Andy Wood were roommates during their formative years in the Seattle music scene, writing songs at home in somewhat of a friendly competition.

Family members of Chris Cornell on Thursday sued a doctor they say overprescribed drugs to the rock singer, leading to his death.

Cornell’s widow, Vicky Cornell, and their children, Toni and Christopher, are plaintiffs in the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court alleging that prescription drugs, especially the anti-anxiety drug Lorazepam, led to erratic behavior from the Soundgarden frontman before his death in Detroit in 2017 at age 52.

The lawsuit says Dr. Robert Koblin and his Beverly Hills office “negligently and repeatedly” prescribed “dangerous mind-altering controlled substances to Chris Cornell which impaired Mr. Cornell’s cognition, clouded his judgment, and caused him to engage in dangerous impulsive behaviors that he was unable to control, costing him his life.”
