Soundgarden Members Say Chris Cornell’s Widow Vicky Locked Them Out Of Their Social Media Accounts
Late Soundgarden lead vocalist Chris Cornell‘s wife Vicky Cornell shared a statement on her official Instagram stories after being accused of keeping the remaining band members away from all of the social media accounts of Soundgarden by changing all the passwords and Vicky stated that she did it after seeing the members did not support the celebration of Chris on social media accounts.
As many of you know, there has been an ongoing tension between the wife of the late frontman Chris Cornell and three remaining members of Soundgarden, the lead guitarist Kim Thayil, drummer Matt Cameron, and bassist Ben Shepard for a while now since Vicky Cornell sued the remaining members of Soundgarden in December 2019, alleging that there is a great amount of money in unpaid royalties.
After the accusations, the surviving members of Soundgarden also filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit filed against them by the widow of Chris Cornell, stating that Vicky claims ownership of the final Soundgarden album, however, the iconic frontman has no instrumental or vocal parts in that albums, therefore, her allegations are not righteous.
While there was already a lawsuit going on, Vicky Cornell recently filed a lawsuit against the remaining members of Soundgarden, that is lead guitarist Kim Thayil, drummer Matt Cameron, and bassist Ben Shepard, alleging that all of those members are robbing from their former bandmate, Chris Cornell, including his family by offering a lower payment to them than the deserved worth of Chris’ interest.
While the relationship between Vicky Cornell and the members of soundgarden heated up as the time went, there is a new update on the matter as three remaining members of the band filed a lawsuit against the wife of the iconic leada vocalist, stating that she changed all the passwords of the band’s social media accounts including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vimeo, YouTube, Snapchat, Tumblr, Top Spin, Pinterest, and their official website, preventing the members from using those social media platforms.
Recently, Vicky Cornell shared a post on her official Instagram stories revealing a statement in which Vicky accused the remaining members of Soundgarden refused to support a celebration of Chris Cornell’s voice, which made most fans think it must be the reason why she blocked all the members from using any of the band’s social media accounts.
Here is what Vicky said:
“Sadly the other three Soundgarden members now object to a celebration of Chris’s voice even as they take legal action to demand the use of his vocals.
In their latest attacks, they claim to be against the ‘noonesingslikeyouanymore’ hashtag – even though that # was taken from Chris’s lyrics from ‘Black Hole Sun’ that was created and used by fans all over the world as a mark of respect and in tribute to him since the day after he died.
My children and I are so grateful to the fans for the love and respect you have all shown to him and thereby us since that tragic night.
