Jamie Weiland remembers Scott Weiland

She dropped a throwback picture from their wedding back in 2013.

“Eleven years. Hard to believe. Scott, his wonderful parents and me on that day. Life, and love, move on – but there is an enormous and powerful place in my heart for this love, and that beautiful day, always.”

Jamie Wachtel Weiland recently insisted that he “did not overdose on drugs”. It was back in 2015 that reports stated Weiland had passed away after taking a “toxic mix of drugs” – a claim his widow Jamie snubbed in a recent appearance on the Appetite for Distortion podcast.

“I feel like when he died, everybody was kind of like: ‘That’s tragic, but of course he overdosed, which – he didn’t fucking overdose,” she said on the podcast. “I tried to get that point across. He didn’t.”

She further explained that the late Velvet Revolver singer did have drugs in his system when he died, so it was ruled as an accidental overdose.

“But the truth is, Scott died because the main artery in his left ventricle was 95 per cent blocked,” she continued. “That came from 10 years of heroin use, that came from an entire adult life of chain smoking. His heart stopped.

“Did he have trace amounts of drugs in his system? He did. Did I know he was using? No, I didn’t, because he lied to me, because I had caught him before, and it would always be this huge fight and I would be furious at him.”

At the time of his passing, Weiland was said to be under intense stress while on the road with The Wildabouts. Reports soon floated that he had faced both financial and personal struggles. The latter included rumors that he distanced himself from his children and had just learned both of his parents had been diagnosed with cancer, leading to accusations of self-medication.

Jamie still maintains the stance that at the time of his death, Scott was “not using heroin”. In the time since his death, she has faced criticism from fans, particularly after making a £45,000 claim against his estate in 2016. She addressed the claims in the recent interview, saying: “People can say whatever the f**k they want about things that I did or didn’t do.”

She continued: “The truth was I did pretty much all the heavy lifting myself with him. I was alone with him, trying to keep him safe and keep him calm, and get him to the right doctors – and get him on stage, get him to rehearsals. It was just me.

“I was the gatekeeper for everything. And that was really, really f***ing hard. So when we talk about the comments that people make about me, about Scott, about our marriage, I basically want to tell everybody to go f*** off, [because] they weren’t there. They didn’t know.”
