Chris Cornell Bandmate Accused Of Affair With Famous Actress


Brad Wilk, who played with Chris Cornell in Audioslave and also drummed for Rage Against The Machine, is being accused by his estranged wife Selene Vigil-Wilk of having an affair with actress and singer Juliette Lewis, leading to their split, The Blast reports. In 2013, Selene claims Brad told her he was sleeping with a woman who worked at a strip club in Las Vegas, and that the woman was pregnant. It was later exposed that the Las Vegas woman was lying about the pregnancy.

Selene originally filed for divorce in 2013, but the couple reconciled after coming to a new living arrangement that while Brad toured, she would raise the kids. She said Brad informed her in December 2015 that he wanted a divorce, and he went on tour with Juliette Lewis’ band in 2016, and Selene claims that at this point they began having an affair as she was hoping for another reconciliation, and Brad informed her later that year that he was moving in with Lewis. Selene then told Brad she was going through with the divorce.

The couple were married in 2005 and have children. Selene is now seeking spousal support. Wilk currently plays with Prophets of Rage, featuring Rage Against The Machine bandmates Tom Morello and Tim Commerford, along with Public Enemy’s Chuck D and Cypress Hill’s B-Real.
