Scott Weiland Widow: ‘He Didn’t Die From Overdose’


Late Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland‘s widow Jamie said on the Appetite for Distortion podcast that Scott did not die from an overdose on drugs. Alternative Nation transcribed her remarks.

“He didn’t fucking overdose, I try to get that point across. He didn’t. Because he had drugs in his system, the coroners had to rule it an overdose. But the truth is Scott died because the main artery in his left ventricle was 95% blocked. That came from 10 years of heroin use, that came from an entire adult life of chain smoking. It was his heart stopped. Did he have trace amounts of drugs in his system? He did. Did I know he using? No I didn’t, because he lied to me. I caught him before, and it’d always be this big fight, and I’d be furious at him for doing this stuff, and lying to me about it.”

Jamie got very emotional, “I remember even talking to the coroner in Minnesota whenever it happened, and I said, ‘How could he lie to me about this again?’ The coroner was so kind, ‘I think he really didn’t want to disappoint you.’ But I really wanted to clear up, it was not an overdose, he was not using heroin. He did not overdose on drugs, his heart stopped.”

Weiland died on December 3, 2015 while on tour with the Wildabouts. Watch Jamie Weiland’s full interview below.

It has come to light that legendary Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland’s son Noah Weiland is apparently banned from his father’s social media account.

Noah Weiland’s Father’s Day wish to Scott Weiland

The singer recently took to Instagram to celebrate Father’s Day on his story. He revealed that he was banned from his father’s account and that he couldn’t tag him in the story:

“Happy Father’s Day dad… I’d tag you but unfortunately I’m not even allowed to tag my own father on social media anymore!”

He then shared the screenshot of his father’s account in another story and wrote:

“Whoever runs this account can f*ck themselves, wanna unfollow me from my own father’s account?”

Noah got fed up and shared another story flipping off the people who run his father’s account. He also mentioned being the only person that ‘never wanted a penny’ from him:

“Literally all I do is make music, stay sober, hit the beach & mind my own business these days and people that I could care less about always wanna pop up or get in the way of things. I wouldn’t even say anything negative about anyone if people would just leave me the f*ck alone. But unfollowing me from my own dad’s Instagram account when I’m literally the only person actually trying to do something for him is some BS man. The only person who can truly say they never wanted a penny from him & just to feel closer that’s it, is ME… Jeez.”

Noah Weiland recently reworked unreleased vocals from his father, Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott, on the new song ‘Time Will Tell’, after an apparent blackmail attempt.

Scott Weiland passed away back in 2015 due to an accidental overdose. His son Noah has embarked on a solo music career, and his latest single is ‘Time Will Tell’. The track features previously unheard vocals from Scott, which Noah said that he released after being on the end of an attempted blackmail.

He told Rolling Stone that Scott had worked on an unfinished demo of the song before his death, which an unknown individual had been able to secure, and had threatened to leak online unless Noah handed over $2,000.

Noah previously revealed that his father was in financial debt when he passed away. Reports revealed that Scott Weiland faced serious financial problems before he died. According to a 2019 article from The Blast, the IRS filed a tax lien against him for unpaid federal income taxes from 2012 to 2014.

Additionally, Scott’s ex-wife, Jamie Weiland, confirmed that he had a large amount of debt when he passed away.

A few months after Noah’s comments,  he revealed that he had been blackmailed by someone who had an old version of a song featuring his late father’s vocals. Noah shared a screenshot of the song he released on YouTube and the threatening message he received. He also wrote in the caption:

“Can’t believe I’m saying this right now but basically I’ve been getting blackmailed by a random number that somehow has a very old version of a song I have with my father. And because of that, I am basically forced to release a song I had no intentions of releasing until way further into my career cause this coward really thinks I’m about to send them $2k to not leak it.”

Noah and Lou Reed’s son Spencer Carr Reed modernized one of his father’s unheard songs as if he featured in the song. The singer said no one in his father’s team ‘bothered’ to release unheard music to keep his memory alive, so he did.
