Chris Cornell Needs Even More Money

Susan Silver's ex-husband Chris Cornell is suing her because he wants more money. Silver managed Cornell's old band, Soundgarden. Cornell still receives generous monthly checks from a variety of Soundgarden related entities, some controlled by Silver.

The lawsuit alleges that Silver acted with "fraud, oppression and malice," emanating "at least in part from the dissolution of their personal relationship and her incentive to further her career by maximizing the interests of other Soundgarden members."

Hunky former hair farmer Chris Cornell - some schoolgirls love him, some have never heard of him.

And he wants his Grammys back too, and some personal journals. Who else would publicly humiliate themselves in court just to grab yet another million bucks expect someone motivated by greed?

The handsome international rock star Cornell had women throwing themselves at him and towards the end of his marriage to Silver he found it hard to resist the temptation to be unfaithful to her. They divorced in 2002 after 12 years.

Without Silver Cornell would be working as a used car salesman - she literally co-founded the Seattle music scene, and was a very shrewd manager and finanancial planner. Despite the millions she made for him, Cornell apparently still needs more to support his extravagent lifestyle.

Untrained as a vocalist, high school graduate Cornell has needed a series of expensive surgeries to treat throat problems caused by improper singing. He has had rock-star related substance abuse problems too.

Cornell, 41, has a new family who he has flogged to the media at the apparent expense of his first daughter with Silver (Lily, 5). On December 7 he and his 27-year-old wife had a baby boy named, you guessed it - Chris. The also have a 14-month-old daughter, Toni.

He claims that his new European wife had never heard of the band Soundgarden and didn't know who he was. She must have grown up on an isolated farm without access to the broadcast or print media, because Soundgarden is huge in Europe.

Cornell has a new band called Audioslave which has very little if any credibility with today's young people despite the fact that their slick L.A. PR firm gets them placed in Rolling Stone Magazine sent to Cuba so that they would be seen as "political" and "revolutionary."

Silver still lives in Seattle. Cornell moved to L.A. He seeks "punitive" damages from her too, but the punishment he's going to get will come in the form of a loss of his already tenuous credibility with us folks who are sick and tired of the vapid, greedy Bush-era celebrities being vomited out at us by the corporate mass media. Audioslave is not about the music, it's about the marketing of a fake-anarchist corporate "supergroup" and their teenage audience is sophistciated enough to pick up on that.

Chris Cornell will be further humiliated if his handlers allow this lawsuit to progress, and the Tattler will be there!
