Photographer Reveals Why Chris Cornell Seemed Upset At Final Show

Ken Settle, who photographed Chris Cornell at Soundgarden’s final show in May 2017, discusses the concert on Autopsy: The Last Hours of Chris Cornell, set for premiere Sunday on Reelz Channel at 9PM EST.

“The last time I photographed Chris was at the very final Soundgarden show, it was an emotional thing.”

“It’s been reported that they often did that song, and they would often work parts of that song into some of their own music. Whether that meant something that serious to him at that time, I really don’t know.”

“Later on in the night, there were moments where his voice wasn’t maybe as consistent. when I look back at YouTube videos, I can see some moments where there was some slurring, and where he wasn’t hitting the notes like you would expect.”

“It seemed like he was a little bit perturbed about something. That was very uncharacteristic, considering how the show started.”

During another portion of the special, Settle discussed Chris’ love for his family, including wife Vicky and children Lily, Toni, and Christopher. “There was this whole other level of joy in his life because of his family.”

Cornell died by suicide following Soundgarden’s concert at the Fox Theatre in Detroit.

    Why is it so unmentionable to so many to suggest that Chris Cornell and Vicky Cornell were quarreling that evening.

    It doesn’t mean they didn’t love each other – it doesn’t mean Chris wasn’t devoted to his children – it just means they were quarreling and it showed in his performance and he took drastic action because he was unable to cope with his emotions.

    If anything, it can warn all of us that when we push each other so hard during quarrels and one person is not stable, it is dangerous. Many men die as Chris did in an angry altercation with their wife. I think women can survive the marriage wars more easily than men.

    • Kay B

      I have this feeling, and this might be crazy, but I have this feeling for some reason the people that they interviewed on this upcoming show is pushing this love for his family because they want the viewer to not think a quarrel had anything to do with what he did. And for people who are not as big of fans (of Chris) as others. and just happen to flip on this show and with only certain information, will walk away thinking it was solely the Ativian. I just think all this talk about how much he loved this and that is a bit weird. I have seen every episode of this show and none of them have been so adamant about this subject. It’s weird to me.

      • makingconnections

        I agree–I’ve had the strangest feeling since hearing they’re going back to the Cornell parents seemingly to suggest that an unhappy childhood caused this rather than anything to do with the life he was living.
        Anyone who has followed the saga since Chris died knows that he and his wife were quarreling that day….he was upset and was heard on the phone if I remember correctly. It wasn’t just a few bad words after the concert. There is something very strange about a reputable doctor, having done fair shows in the past who would seemingly be choosing this route. Maybe someone got to him?

        • Kay B

          Well his work has been pretty good thus far, but I’m not so positive on this one. Anyway, about your comment earlier about my hair. Yes I have natural auburn hair but I color it frequently black. I go between those colors.

        • Ann Kiernan

          Because it’s an autopsy (medical dramatization type show, they heavily focus on toxicology but unless his family (his real biological family) can reveal the last texts and fights between him and Vicky and what they were about we will never know why. The Body Guard who cannot talk has been the subject of the most horrible conspiracy theories now fuelled even by Chris’ crazy Mother in Law is one I wish could tell us what he knows.

          • makingconnections

            I can’t understand why Vicky is so afraid to appear at all a part of Chris’s passing. I’ve said dozens of times on here that I think marriage can be very difficult. If my husband died, especially in the way that Chris did, I’d feel so guilty, but I hope I’d face the feelings and try to get over the guilt. I can think of many, many ways I’ve been hard on him; however, he too has a way of acting out….we both do. So why does she act like the perfect wife and push the loving lioness stuff until we want to vomit? If she’d expressed one bit of regret for her role, she’d quite likely be respected today.

          • Kay B

            I don’t agree with Vicky’s narrative, or how she seemed to have ignored his depression even after his death. I can’t say she killed him, Chris did that. It would be comforting however if she just came out and said yes he had depression instead of denying it. At least we could hope she will then see the signs in her children if they happen to have it in the future.

          • makingconnections

            I actually feel guilty right at this moment for all the times I’m hard on my husband and because of that I fuss over him and let him run all over God’s half acre doing whatever he wants….then I’m pissed off again cause he’s gone so much, and round it goes. Marriage is a challenge, so why wouldn’t it be for the Cornell’s…he was an amazing rock star. My husband’s just sort of undomesticated and we can hardly cope!

            Yes, I really doubt there will be any consideration of hereditary factors–I just don’t think the family could even face such facts, but we should always be hopeful!

          • Kay B

            I summed (and by summed I mean it’s long) up the show above. They did focus on the tox report.

      • I H8 RotnLies

        You can believe if during the prescreening they’ll cut n paste until it seems to suit THEIR needs.

      • Olga Stewart

        From what I have heard, the commercials for the show are pushing the drug angle.

        So I think that is going to have a fair amount of people up in arms.

        • makingconnections

          It won’t upset Vicky if it goes that way (and her devotees). I don’t think Chris’s fans have the energy to fight crazy-making behaviour much longer.

          • Olga Stewart

            I don’t have the energy anymore either. Nor the patience.

            I just want both Vicky and her family to both shut up and disappear.

      • makingconnections

        Kay, could you tell me your reaction to the show….I’d watch it if we could but it’s not permitted in this area.

        Do they make any suggestions?

        • Kay B

          I am going to watch it now. I recorded it so I’ll be back soon.

        • Kay B

          Okay I apologize this is so late. My husband and I talked awhile after the show. I thought the show was done well. It discussed his drinking and LSD use at an early age and the non relationship he had with his parents. And it touched on the death of Wood which we all know affected him greatly. It mentioned a few times about how much he loved Vicky and her mother and the Mother’s Day cards. It did also discussed the flickering of the lights and the argument he and Vicky got into after the concert. It did mention his struggle with drinking and his fear of open spaces/ crowds, which the doc and psychologist suggest the fear came from the bad trip he had as a pre-teen. When your brain is still in the early stages of development. Honestly in the first half of the show depression was not mentioned. I was some what disappointed at this point but then was reminded by my husband it was only half way done.

          They did show actual clips and stills of Chris through out his life. They mentioned he may have obtained an Oxycontin addiction that was prescribed to him for pain in his body. This they suggested came from his constant jumping/headbanging animated movements on stage. This I believe because I have seen it myself in the medical field from many people who were in bands as teens or in their 20s and now have concussion syndrome.

          They showed clips of Vicky on shows after his death talking about the dangers of addiction. They did not mention the #NoMoreBullshit, but I did not expect them to. They mentioned the EMT call about the head trauma but how it was not mentioned in the autopsy. They also mentioned the pictures of the back of his head taken at that last show. The doc suggested if he did have head trauma, concussions can cause depression to get worse, this is also true. However, from what I took away from this show is that they do not think he had head trauma. Now when I asked my husband about this discrepancy, (my husband was a long time EMT) he said the EMT may have said this because he saw a scratch or something minimal, that they include as trauma. My husband also said when they are in the moment of trying to save a life, there is so much going on that even skilled, long time EMTs may mistake a bruise or scratch they saw that may not have actually been there. The head injury was not in the autopsy. And if it was something very minor, they would most likely not include it. My husband and I do think it is quite possible he fell from the hanging when the BG kicked in the door. And this could also cause an after affect of head trauma. The stills of the last show of his head did look red to me. But now that i think of it, it could have been the red lights shining on a bald spot. Either way, they concluded he had no head trauma.

          It was mentioned the BG gave him 2 Ativan after the show. The doc suggested ( and I have always thought this) that since the BG gave him the pills, that shows Chris was being regulated. I would find it interesting how many pills were left in the bottle compared to what the script was for. But that wasn’t mentioned and it probably isn’t important. I myself would just find it interesting. Sometimes you can tell how much was taken in a certain time frame..

          Now the important stuff: The doc mentioned and made it very clear no alcohol, heroin, LSD, weed or any other hard drugs were in his body. It was made very clear the substances that were, were indeed in therapeutic ranges. The doc therefore said “I do not think Ativan or any other substance made him commit suicide.” He then mentions no antidepressants were in his system. And in his opinion, because he was not on medications for depression, depression played a huge role in his suicide. Now what he does mention in certain careful words, and I have agreed with this all along, is that depression, untreated was a huge factor in his suicide, but his past drug and drinking (including the ativan) although he believes didn’t cause the suicide, could have made Chris content enough to do what he did. I understand he has to talk carefully to cover all bases by including the therapeutic range drugs may have made it more tolerable to make his decision, or should I say, be at peace with it. But the doc also made it clear because the drugs were in thereputic ranges and because he did not have antidepressants in his system, depression was the major factor of his suicide. I’m sorry this was so long and maybe even hard to read but it’s hard to put an hr show with a doc’s opinion in type. I do agree with Vicky that he should not have been on Ativan to begin with. But she also has not mentioned him having depression since his death. Matter of fact she has denied it. My husband brought up the fact that even though we might not agree with Vicky and her Ativan narrative, we have to remember that no wife wants to be blamed for her husband’s death. And in grieving, some people may not think clearly for awhile. The truth is, Ativan can cause suicidal tendencies, and maybe Vicky is right. But my husband and I agree with this doc. He had thereputic ranges, he had no antidepressants, and depression is the main factor. I do believe Ativan made him feel at ease with his decision, but ultimately, in the manner of the suicide, the locking of 2 doors, the exercise band and the thinking it took to fashion it into a noose, this was something he was set on doing. Like I said it wasn’t something abrupt like a jump or gun shot. I do believe when people hang themselves they have put some thought into it and that is what they want to do. I will tell you that I can not say Vicky killed him. Chris killed himself. However, from my experience with an ex who did not recognize or support my depression, I tried suicide twice because I had no support. And I feel that Chris was missing that. And he didn’t know what to do anymore. He was not being treated for it, and maybe if he had been, things would have been different. So in closing, i agree with this doc. And I am not saying the show was decent because I agree with him. They covered many questions people had. They didn’t take sides in my opinion. It was based on facts. Like I said I think Vicky is right, he should not have had Ativan, but I do not think this is what made him do what he did. I think his depression that he had most of his life and the lack of taking care of it brought him to his decision, and Ativan made it okay for him to be at peace with it. The ranges being thereputic were very important in this case. It very much influence the docs result. The lack of antidepressant was also important. Chances are because Ativan was in thereputic range, there won’t be a lawsuit. This is all my opinion, and no one has to agree with me or the show. I don’t think he should have been touring, knowing Chris, he didn’t want to disappoint fans, and continued touring even if he felt mentally he couldn’t. I really do hope healing for Vicky and his family. Honestly, Vicky could be right about the Ativan since it can cause suicidal thoughts, but from the medical facts I have gathered in the last yr or so, I do not think it was Ativan. Again, this is MY opinion. What we need to take away from this is : Chris was perfect at his craft. He is sorely missed. No one can replace him. We need to focus on mental illness in the US. Even all these shootings we have in this country suggest we need to support and help people with mental illness. RIP Chris. You are missed by so many.

            Thank you so much Kay. I was concerned that the show upset you…but instead I think it can give some closure to you and everyone really. We’ll all have our particular opinions. I know Ativan is very unpopular now, but when Chris was younger and having problems they prescribed it readily and it could have saved his life if he was severely depressed and anxious. Don’t forget that anti-depressants are relatively new and I’m sure he would have tried different types through the years, perhaps even without his wife knowing. I think he had emotional problems throughout his life and did the best he could.

            You know, with the difficult things that I’ve gone through in my life, especially the loss of my brother, as time goes by and I try to be emotionally healthy myself, I come to the point eventually of realizing that “It’s just what happened”, and life goes on. Yes, as you say, we need to support those that are struggling and encourage those that are to seek help, without labeling them as losers.

            It sounds as though the program was balanced and wouldn’t have hurt any of Chris’s loved ones. I’m sure they were cautious about that.

          • Kay B

            I thought it was balanced. They showed the love between Chris and Vicky, which I don’t doubt. I don’t know why her mother had to be mentioned but hey. They mentioned there were 6 kids in the family but no specifics. However, they said Andy Wood was like the brother Chris never had. I believe this is how it was worded. I can watch it again. I thought about Peter then.

          • makingconnections

            Poor choice of words probably. There are so many details and we know them after all these conversations!

          • makingconnections

            Also Kay, I don’t think many people believe that Vicky killed him – I think the negativity towards her is that she’s tried to control the narrative to such a large degree and never face the fact that her husband may have been depressed. That does not mean that she’d been a bad wife and I wish that she’d realize that. We fail to notice things about each other all the time, despite living together and it’s very easy to get into denial because we can’t face our loved one having problems of any sort. It’s a natural thing for some people. It’s her life and her children and family will do whatever they do. I hope their family and all families will never be ashamed to seek help for depression…when people receive help they often never are bothered by it as badly because they realize there’s a system that can help them, and places and people to turn to. I’ve seen some wonderful turnarounds for people who were really discouraged. I’m especially happy when teens and young adults can be treated because it’s usually very successful….just as negative experiences have impact when you’re young, so do the positive ones.

          • Kay B

            I understand. I just wanted to say that even though I do believe something badly went down in that last phone call and I do not believe Vicky was as nice and comforting as what she is saying, Chris was ultimately in charge of his life and death. A phone call won’t kill you, but a concoction of many things in a very small amount of time……it was all just too much at one time.

          • makingconnections

            You know, sometimes I feel that it’s only right to respect a person’s choice when suicide is involved. I’ve always felt that way to some degree. I still feel the grief but often end up thinking that maybe it was their time to leave and also that we have no idea at all of how long the struggle has been going on. A Psychiatrist friend of mine says his anxiety patients are the bravest and strongest people he knows. To live like that for years is perhaps beyond what we can understand and maybe the deep weariness just makes life impossible to sort out. Godspeed Chris.

          • Ann Kiernan

            There is one simple fact that is not mentioned…they were separated and in the throes of major fighting, that was the cause of his depression/despair. Yes he had depressive tendencies all his life but he was going through a dreadful period. He was alone that tour because Vicky and the Mother in Law no longer travelled with him. I don’t know why but his wife had some demand that they separate but pretend to be still together. I don’t know how he managed those 13 years living with that family all you have to do is witness their online behaviour to see what he lived with.

          • Tami J McQueen

            They were definitely separated. Chris hated drama, and that’s exactly what he would have received from VK & TK

          • Kay B

            I completely understand your comment. I do think this was an important point. The show is a medical show however and it will go into relationships with family (including how he was brought up and by whom) but this show focuses on the medical aspect of a death. They simulate in every show no matter who they are talking about how the brain and body is affected by certain drugs. They aren’t expecting their average viewer to be that of the medical field. So they explain it as if that is the case. And in one hour they have to cover a lot. Your point is important to many of his fans and so fourth, but to a medical show it is neither here or there because that isn’t what they are trying to explain.

          • Ann Kiernan

            But to figure why he did what he did you cannot separate the medical from the personal turmoil he was experiencing. The man was worn out and distraught and what was said to him that night was the last straw. We’ve all been there in the middle of a nasty break up.

          • Kay B

            I agree we can’t separate it. But the show can. The show is titled “Autopsy:…” so it’s responsibility is to medically show the viewer how a person died. It doesn’t have the responsibility to show the relationship of the deceased to their spouses. This is why only a few sentences were mentioned about the fighting. I am actually surprised they mentioned that to be honest. But glad they did.

          • makingconnections

            Kay, I just want to say again and that I’m very grateful for your sharing your understanding of the Autopsy Show. I trust your judgement. We’ve had so many conversations since Chris died and it was your poem that made me hear your words so well. Today I feel somewhat of a sense of closure and I don’t know if you realize it or not, but starting with your poem and ending with this post, it’s as though you’ve come full circle.

            I have a feeling of wanting to let it be now…the details of Chris Cornell’s life are inconsequential, he’s moved on. Hell, I can’t figure out the dynamics of my birth family and it was quite likely more dysfunctional that Chris’s. No one ever really knows where the truth lies…somewhere between everyone’s experience probably.

            Talk soon.

          • Kay B

            Thank you for your thoughts. Ironically I was thinking of that poem today. I actually never read it for some reason. But I thought of even though I wrote that right after his death, I think it is close to how he was feeling. I’m not sure but after seeing the show last night it seems to line up. I think Chris figured if he must be lonely, he’d rather just be alone. And that was physically and mentally. Honestly when I saw the show the first time, it was from a medical stand point. I had to watch it again from a fan stand point. You are right though, we can only speculate, the truth is somewhere.

          • makingconnections

            I can imagine your experience of the show was different being in the medical field. You’ve always added good information from that standpoint. I’ve learned a lot in this time about so many things, witnessing people’s reactions and manner of coping. That’s what interests me as the medical aspect does you.
            I too think your poem written so soon after Chris’s death tapped into the truth, as close as anything I’ve ever read. We always complicate things given enough time, but truly, you’ve come full circle and your description of the show did the world of good for me. I don’t want to disagree with anyone over any of this any longer and at the same time, I think we were meant to learn things that we’ll never be able to describe because of all the effort to sort out our feelings. And, besides, we have new friends!
            By the way, I was reading somewhere lately that when men make the decision to leave here, they are often very determined. It certainly seemed so with Chris.

          • Kay B

            I think men are very determined when they decide to go. I feel like hanging is usually the way men choose. Thank you for your thoughts above.

          • ricky_fitts

            Thank you, Kay. 100%
            with you on this. One thing still bothers me though: Do you or your
            husband have any idea why Chris was off antidepressants? I mean we
            all know about David Foster Wallace and similar cases. Only reason I
            could think of are ineffectiveness/bad side effects or if a patient
            explicitly refuses medication. I remember Chris once said he was
            an extremely passive aggressive type, always trying to make everyone
            around feel comfortable. (I guess that’s why he was perceived “sweet”
            by so many.) At the same time he swallowed a lot of anger and tended
            to blame himself for whatever went wrong. I believe this also played a
            role, him feeling responsible for the break-up, the bad gig etc. I guess we
            will never know if Vicky didn’t support him with his depression or if
            she’s in denial.

    • Olga Stewart

      Yes but I think whatever Vicky said to Chris on the phone that night is what pushed him over the edge.

      So now I’m not even sure if you could call it a quarrel between them?

      Now when it had such a tragic end.

      • makingconnections

        I understand why you’d feel that way Olga, but I don’t think she had a clue about her husband’s mental health. We all create our own reality but she does it to the extreme! I believe she’ll blame Ativan and teach her children her viewpoint into eternity.

        • Lynne Staley

          Unfortunately, she is as clueless as Talinda Bennington was. But, if people think that a silly fight between him and his wife is what made him do that, they are nuts.

          • makingconnections

            Please explain further. As I suggest this and that, it’s always with the knowledge that I don’t know actually, just imagining how it is for people.

            I believe this show (Which I can’t get in my area…) will talk about Chris’s problems with depression and anxiety throughout his life and will put blame on his father’s alcoholism and all that goes with that, and a bad trip with PCP when he was young. Personally, I don’t think that his death can be pinned on events so long ago, although of course they contributed to his mental health. On the other hand, a quarrel in a marriage can be so much more than a silly quarrel. It can contains threats and often do. You’ll never see your children again because you’ve relapsed. I’ll take every penny you have and bring such shame to you and let the public know you’ve relapsed. Was this said? Who knows, but I don’t imagine it was a silly quarrel if it went on all day as some observed and left Chris Cornell in the state he was in at the end of the day.

          • Olga Stewart

            It was years of Chris being horribly treated, being used, and being manipulated that led to what happened that night of May last year.

            Chris could have and should have put his foot down the first time Vicky and/or her family got out of line. But he was a doormat. And so he let people walk over him.

            Unfortunately, that didn’t help him because he is no longer with us.

          • Ann Kiernan

            And he probably was at last fighting back and there was a shift in the dynamic of the relationship which brought out a nastiness in her which he took too hard. She may never acknowledge her part in his death I don’t think it’s in that family’s nature to self analyse.

          • Olga Stewart

            I agree with all of this.

          • Kay B

            Hence #NoMoreBullshit. I think he finally did decide to fight back for his dignity. He probably felt partly anyway that he had to continue touring for her even if they weren’t togehter instead of taking care of himself.

          • Olga Stewart

            Yes, I think he was starting to come back to who he truly was.

            And I don’t believe Vicky and her family were too happy about that.

          • Tony Manley

            I believe the man just worked his self to death, 3 different bands and numerous solo gigs add that with being on the road continuously in a room miles away from your family and then throw major depression in the mix..not good.

          • Ann Kiernan

            They were separated and it was far from a silly fight. There’s also online posts from the Mother in law who took a panic attack when she witnessed a particularly nasty fight in the days leading up to his death.

        • Ann Kiernan

          You know it’s pretty common knowledge they were already separated….

          • makingconnections

            I didn’t know that. People can become ruthless during separations. I remember being 23 with a beautiful one-year old and my ex telling me he’d take me to court for custody and win because of his successful career. (He was brilliant and successful), but not emotional intelligent. He said I was “just a mother”…true. I was terrified.
            He didn’t follow through of course–he was in a rage when he said that.

        • Olga Stewart

          Actually, she did.

          Back when Chris was divorcing Susan, there was a mention in one of the e-mails to the attorney that Chris suffered from depression.

          However, when it came to this last year and a bit, she chose to ignore that.

          But she knew. And that is something else that she will have to live with.

          • makingconnections

            I don’t think she feels guilty…I think she’s a person that creates her own reality and plays her role of the innocent wife watching her husband relapse. That’s her story and she’s sticking to it.

          • Olga Stewart

            The problem is that by her doing this, she has tarnished both Chris as a person and a musician.

            So no one will remember her for being a loving, understanding, and supportive wife. Instead they will think of her as a manipulative, scheming, and cold widow.

          • makingconnections

            I woke up today thinking the same thing.

            We are called to be gracious at such times and think of the memory and image people have of your husband. Instead she was from the beginning completely self-obsessed–threw the public Chris’s private health information and his private communications. That’s not dignified but was necessary so that she received the attention she wanted. She threw him under the bus and I have a hard time not thinking of her when I hear his name. It would have been understandable for a time; however this will never change. She’s a child….no, many children would know better.

          • Kay B

            I summed up the show above.

          • Olga Stewart

            Thanks for the summary of the show.

            I am glad that they did their best to be both fair and balanced in talking about this.

            But should this ever come to Canada, I won’t be watching it. This is because I think it was both insensitive and invasive to have done this

            Yes, I may be alone in my opinion of this. And that’s fine. But it’s how I feel about this.

            I think everyone respects each others right to their own opinion here Olga. So many have tried to understand what happened and I think this program did give some closure and I’m glad for that. I don’t think I’d watch it either now that I know what the doctor’s opinion is. I do feel a sense of closure with his analysis of the drug issue.

          • Olga Stewart

            Well I already knew that it wasn’t due to drugs that Chris died.

            So I didn’t need to watch the program to know that.

            However, I just felt it was both invasive and disrepectful towards Chris, his children, and his family.

            But I realize such programs are made a lot of the time. So it’s just a matter for me to ignore them.

          • makingconnections

            I think they portrayed his marriage and family life as very loving and his passing totally his own choice. That’s how I understand the doctor’s investigation went anyway.

          • Olga Stewart

            Unfortunately, it wasn’t all that loving during the last fourteen years of his life.

            But I know that would not have been a part of the program.

            Besides you asking about the show, I wanted to sum it up for those that do not feel comfortable watching it. There is no problem with that.

          • makingconnections

            Well, speaking for myself, you did me a great service. I’ve thought about the details for a long time and this show was as close to an unbiased investigation as we’ll ever get. I would have watched it if we were able to here, but now I have the information through you, it doesn’t matter any longer. It’s probably been easier for me to have you describe it to me.

          • Olga Stewart

            If this program is something that one needs to watch, then I both respect that and accept it.

            But it’s just not the sort of program for me (the reasons of which I have explained).

          • makingconnections

            I understand. I won’t be watching it if we are ever able to in Canada either. I was glad to hear Kay’s word’s about their portrayal of how it happened. I’ve focused on the truth of Chris Cornell’s passing quite a lot, as so many have, during the past year and more. I trust Kay’s interpretation and opinions for that matter. Her knowledge of medicine and the human body is solid and is helpful to understanding some things. I would like to not be so interested any longer and the effort that Kay put into her post the other night will help me to quit thinking about it.
            I comment on Chris’s marriage sometimes, but I should not do that. I don’t know a think about either of his marriages when it comes down to it.
            I hope I will never jump on you for your opinions Olga. We can’t always agree, but in this case there’s no right or wrong in my opinion. You can be interested or not want to see it for very good reasons…it’s all to be respected.

          • Kay B

            There is no problem feeling the way you do about this.

          • Olga Stewart

            Sometimes I get jumped upon on here because of my opinions.

            So it’s really nice to hear someone say that the opinion that I expressed about this is all right.

            And thank you. :).

      • Ann Kiernan

        I agree 100%. Every effort has been made by Vicky and her Mother to blame everything and every one from paramedics to the BG to his own brother in order to deflect blame from Vicky. We know she said something truly horrid in order for him to leave his kids that way.

        • Olga Stewart

          One day I hope that the truth comes out.

          But until then, I think Vicky is going to have eventually realize that she will fade into nothingness. And when that happens, then she will only have the memories of what she ruined. She also will have to live with what she said to Chris on the phone that night.

        • Kay B

          Agree. She think’s it’s everyone else’s fault. Chris ended his life because he wanted to IMO. It is a shame she couldn’t acknowledge the fact he was depressed. She still can’t.

  • Brian Hunt

    Crappy clickbait…misleading headline and no mention of what song that quote is even about.

  • Dncn Bishop

    If not even Brett seems to read these before publishing, how is anyone else expected to?

  • I H8 RotnLies

    Take a look at all the other episodes of this show… and the people they’re discussing. most, if not All, died in a suspicious manner, and they know people will believe what they see on tv. So they’ll spin it anyway THEY seem fit.

  • I H8 RotnLies

    SO WHY DID CHRIS SEEM UPSET? …. I’LL HOLD

  • I H8 RotnLies

    Are they going to have a showing at Hollywood forever too?

    • Olga Stewart

      God I hope not.

  • Olga Stewart

    Well, Brett or Ken, what do you think the actual reason was for Chris being upset at the concert?

    I ask this because it sure hasn’t been ‘revealed’ in this article.
