It’s been just over a month since her husband Chris Cornell died, but time has stood still for Vicky Cornell, who can recite every single detail of that painful night.
On May 18, Soundgarden and Audioslave singer Chris Cornell, 52, was found dead in his hotel room shortly after performing at Detroit’s famed Fox Theater.
Opening up to MTV in an exclusive interview, our Vicks explained why it's actually pretty tricky trying to have a love life when you've got such a loyal army of fans who only want what's best for you.
“My Chris was happy, loving, caring and warm,” says Vicky.
Vicky, 29, met John eight years ago and they dated for six months, however the pair split and Vicky went on to join MTV’s Geordie Shore.
The pair bumped in to each other in 2016 on a train and rekindled their romance; they announced their engagement in July.
In a panic, she called the singer back, and when he didn’t pick up sent Kirsten to his hotel room. “That disease can take over you and has full power.” Now she’s focused on helping her children cope while trying to find a sense of normalcy.
After breaking down two locked doors, the bodyguard found him slumped in a bathroom.
But at the time of the singer’s death, prescription drugs were found in his system, including the anti-anxiety medication Ativan.
