Vicky Cornell and her legal team have used Chris Cornell’s Instagram story to post statements attacking Soundgarden’s legal action against her to regain their social media accounts. Alternative Nation transcribed some of the remarks.
“Ms. Cornell’s forthcoming motion will expose the truth about the Soundgarden’s supposed social media accounts. Ms. Cornell created the social media accounts, grew the accounts by allowing them to trade on Chris’ then existing, popular accounts, devoted her personal time and money in growing these accounts as Soundgarden displayed absolutely no interest in social media (unless it was to promote their solo projects).
Ms. Cornell has overseen these accounts for close to a decade. The fact that Soundgarden is unaware of the usernames and passwords for their alleged ‘own’ accounts confirms their utter lack of involvement in creating, growing and maintaining their alleged accounts.
Chris Cornell’s former manager Ron Laffitte said in another Chris Cornell Instagram story, “During my 6 years working with Chris Cornell and Soundgarden, Chris and Vicky always controlled all of Soundgarden’s social media accounts, both directly and through their own personal social media representative. At no time were any other members of Soundgarden involved, and this was true both before and after Chris died. Because of this, Soundgarden’s attempt to seek an injunction in connection with the social media accounts is surprising to say the least.”
