Fans Call Out Doctors & Drug Companies After Chris Cornell's Wife Says Suicide May Have Been Caused By Prescription Ativan

| Filed under: DrugsR.I.P.Sad SadHealthViral: News

Chris Cornell's suicide is just so hard to understand. And to his widow Vicky it's "inexplicable."

In a statement early on Friday, she specifically mentioned her husband telling her he had taken "an extra Ativan or two" and that he was "slurring his words."

The Cornells' attorney Kirk Pasich concurred, saying the family was "disturbed at inferences that Chris knowingly and intentionally took his life."

The family is apparently looking to blame the prescription medication and are hoping the full autopsy results support their case that Chris' suicide was not his own idea.

It may sound bizarre for a drug used to treat anxiety, but one of the listed side effects of Ativan, the brand name of lorazepam, is suicidal ideation and suicide attempts.

Many on Twitter following the story were quick to support Vicky's position, including fans, doctors, and recovering addicts:

It's Robin Thicke and Brennan Thicke vs. Tanya Callau!

The latest development? Tanya claims the singer and his brother are putting up such a fight because she won't let them have a pot farm on their dad's Santa Barbara ranch!!

Wow!

According to TMZ, her lawyer Adam Streisand says Robin and Brennan's claims about tabloid threats are fake, AND adds his client has no issue with Alan's prenup. Tanya gets 25% of the ranch, along with a trust which affords her to live her life out on the property.

Additionally, the widow feels Alan's sons are dishonoring the late star with this pot farm.

Shots fired!

We can only imagine how the two will respond to her, especially as they've painted her to be a gold digger.

What do U think about all this messy family drama??

Chris Cornell's Family Struggles To Believe He Would Take His Own Life — Suggests 'Drugs Or Other Substances May Have Affected His Actions'

| Filed under: DrugsR.I.P.Sad SadMental HealthDepression

Chris Cornell

We still can't believe we lost Chris Cornell so unexpectedly this week.

As we reported, the Soundgarden frontman was found in his hotel room after a gig in Detroit on Wednesday night, with a band of some kind around his neck. His death was ruled suicide by hanging.

In response, the Cornell family's attorney Kirk Pasich says the 52-year-old's loved ones are "disturbed" at speculation the musician would intentionally take his own life — and in a statement from Cornell's wife Vicky, Chris admitted to taking "an extra Ativan or two" before he was found dead.

In documents obtained by TMZ, Cheryl claims she fears for their six-year-old son's safety due to her ex-husband's drug use. She alleges Antonio has issues with prescription drugs, benzodiazepines to be exact, and also claims that he used to use crystal meth before the two of them began dating back in 2009. However, Cheryl also shared Antonio got sober after the birth of his daughter from a different relationship.

Cheryl wants sole custody of their son while her ex is hoping for joint.

Antonio, for his part, admits that he had problems with sleeping pills, but that he got that sorted out in rehab. He also said he's outspoken about addiction issues and isn't trying to sweep his past problems under the rug. Otherwise, however, he added:

"Whatever else she says is just a bunch of lies."

The Trump supporter filed documents last week to run for Congress, with his platform focusing on dealing with the opioid crisis.

Apparently, Pete paid $40,000 to go to a treatment facility that specializes in "horse therapy." Only problem is, the 23-year-old is allergic to horses — a fact he did not know until petting a service horse. Poor guy.

Regardless, Davidson turned this depressing AF anecdote into a funny monologue and we're more than impressed. Be sure to ch-ch-check out his Weekend Update segment for yourself (below)!
