The Chris Cornell story just continues to be more and more heartbreaking.
Chris's widow Vicky Cornell just did an interview with People Magazine opening up about Chris and his death.
She continues to stand by the fact that she doesn't think he truly intended to commit suicide and talks about his addictions.
SPIN reports that Vicky said:
“He didn’t want to die. If he was of sound mind, I know he wouldn’t have done this.” She reiterated that he did not seem like himself during their conversation on the phone on the night he died (May 18), and that she believed that drug-induced emotional imbalance was the explicit cause of his death. “My Chris was happy, loving, caring and warm…This was not a depressed man—it wasn’t like I missed that. What I missed were the signs of addiction.”
Vicky Cornell also explained that, after his show in Detroit on May 18, her husband had woken her up by flickering lights in their house from a remote control app on his phone. When they talked on the phone, she claimed that “he was on a rant…I said, ‘You need to tell me what you took,’ and he just got mean. That wasn’t my Chris.”
“Addiction is a disease. That disease can take over you and has full power…I’m going to do everything in my power to make sure other children don’t have to cry like mine have cried.”
Just so sad.
