Chris Cornell's Wife Tears Up In First Interview Since His Death

Chris Cornell and Vicky

Vicky Cornell, the bereaved wife of Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell, has spoken out about her husband's death in her first TV interview since he committed suicide, according to Entertainment Tonight. During the interview, she revealed that Chris, who had battled drug addiction throughout his life, relapsed shortly before he died by suicide last May. She was on Good Morning America this morning, where she said that Cornell had a shoulder injury and was given benzodiazepine for pain relief.

Drugs. Addiction. A mistimed dose of Ativan. Vicky lays the blame for his death on a number of different prescription drugs Cornell was on at that time. Vicky insists there's more to the story. "And in a nine-day period, 33".

"[It is] the most tragic thing you can ever go through", she said. "He was the best husband, the greatest father".

While holding back her tears, Vicky said there were signs and she tries not to blame herself for them, but it's challenging not to.

The widow also acknowledges the stigma attached to addiction, saying even she has been guilty of not thinking of it as a disease in the past. The night of his death, he reportedly called Vicky and said he took one or two extra Ativan pills. "I lost my soulmate and the love of my life". They had two children: Toni (13) and Christopher (12).

Cornell was also father to 17-year-old Lillian from a previous marriage to Susan Silver.
