Chris Cornell’s Wife: This Wasn’t Suicide


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Vicky Cornell isn't encouraged that her spouse dedicated self-destruction. Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, and also Amberia Allen, the hosts of The Young Turks, inform you her proof. Inform us exactly what you think in the remark section below.

" Vicky Cornell, the other half of Soundgarden vocalist Chris Cornell, issued a statement Friday early morning where she remembered her late husband, who died Thursday morning at the age of 52, and also hypothesized whether his self-destruction was the outcome of taking too much of his anxiety drug.

" Chris's death is a loss that escapes words and also has developed an emptiness in my heart that will never ever be filled. As everyone who understood him commented, Chris was a committed dad as well as other half. He was my best friend," Vicky composed.

" His world focused on his family members first and, obviously, his music secondly. He flew home for Mommy's Day to hang around with our family. He flew out mid-day Wednesday, the day of the program, after hanging around with the kids. When we talked before the show, we discussed prepare for a trip over Memorial Day as well as various other things we intended to do."

    I’m studying addictions counseling and more people die from prescription drugs than illegal ones. One reason is they are often readily prescribed (often the doctor gets a kickback) or easy to find people (steal from medicine cabinets).

    I saw them at Lollapallooza in 1992. Great show.

    • Posted by Spoder Man, at Reply

      Maybe because the majority of people who have ever died used prescription drugs? Also, does this remove the overlap of people who used street and prescribed drugs?

    • Posted by J Briggs, at Reply

      lol he took 2 ativan. I’m prescribed ativan. I guarantee that’s not why he killed himself. 2 isn’t even a lot either.

    • Posted by J Briggs, at Reply

      I think he was back on alcohol and maybe other drugs. In his most recent picture he’s skinny and looks awful. He had been sober for years but he was back on the wagon I think.

  2. Posted by J Briggs, at Reply

    I’m prescribed Ativan. I guarantee he didn’t kill himself suddenly just because he took 2 ativans. He obviously had much deeper problems.

      Only way you would slur your words on ativan is if you are drinking also. Or, some other drug.

    • Posted by SeXaR68, at Reply

      I’ve been on Ativan (only if needed for panic attacks) for the past 5 years.
      They never mentioned how many milligrams (Chris’) the pills were. I’ve been given 2mg and 0.5mg pills. This drug is a sedative and practically knocks me out or calms me. It is mentioned that you can relapse into anxiety even stronger or become dependent on it, if taken for a long duration, but never did I feel suicidal from the medication. Everyone has different reactions to medication, but I just don’t feel his suicide is only based on Ativan.

      J Briggs Maybe Ativan made you become an alt-right troll with delusions of grandeur

    TYT used to be informative but the last couple years have been speaking just to speak.

    • Posted by Kanyarat Baker, at Reply

      True and do we really need TYT to tell us drugs can be bad? There guys aren’t actually a news outlet anymore. In fact I’m not sure they ever were.

    • Posted by Rob Delakovias, at Reply

      lol you’re a great troll

    • Posted by Hannah Smith, at Reply

      Kanyarat Baker They’re not just talking about “drugs”, they’re talking about what a certain prescription medication could do to you. A lot of people are on Ativan and they’re completely unaware of the possible negative side effects.
      Of course “drugs” are bad and everyone knows that, but a lot of people think that prescription medication isn’t dangerous just because they’re legal and their doctor gave it to them.
      It’s a cautionary tale for those who are on prescription medication, so it’s informative and very important for some people to know.

    • Posted by Hannah Smith, at Reply

      Kanyarat Baker If you’re talking to me, I never said they’re “news”.

    • Posted by Kanyarat Baker, at Reply

      Unless you’ve been living under a rock, the American public is well aware of the prescription drug epidemic. Hence the absurdity of this video and TYT for that matter. They just love to hear themselves speak.

    it does NOT “trigger” suicidal thoughts. it can make suicidal thoughts worse and the blackouts can cause ppl to not be hesitant to do things…but lets not jump to “Oh the drugs did it!”
    thats a bullshit excuse.
    Lets look into things BEFORE you start to say things like “Ativan MAKES people kill themselves”
    Just like they used to say “Marijuana makes you a violent killer.”
    they used to say that with just as much concern and honest worry as Cenk is saying now.

    • Posted by Totaltwist, at Reply

      Bobbert Bobby Are you even reading my posts or are you off on a tangent? Cause I feel you’ve conflated stuff.

    • Posted by Bobbert Bobby, at Reply

      must be my meds making me say stuff. lol I guess i woe you an apology…but then again the drugs must be making thoughts and actions that i have no control over so I dont owe you an apology then. shrug

    • Posted by Totaltwist, at Reply

      Bobbert Bobby Clearly this has struck a nerve with you because your last comment was just not even relevant.

      We were discussing whether drugs can change your mind and mood enough for you to make decisions you normally wouldn’t. Not whether you should be held accountable for the action.

      Guess what, I do believe if you are too intoxicated to know wtf is going on, what ever damage you do to someone is still your fault.

    • Posted by Bobbert Bobby, at Reply

      first off look up the term “joke” and “sarcasm” but anyways…by you saying that a drugs or substance can “make” you do something you wouldnt normally do..your altering what i orginaly had issue with with my first post you responded to. the objecvtion was ppl saying that a drug can “make” someone do something that wasnt already somewhere..even if only minorly was in their head. thats what i was taking issue with..and you seemed like you supported what i was speaking against so now you seem to be changing your point cause being culpable for your actions only comes if you are responsible for your actions..if a drug can make you have impulses that are completely out of the blue…that means that it happens without any responsibility. Im not sure how you can say that these drugs can make you have thoughts and impulses that are beyond your control and come out of nowhere and still say your supposed to be held responsible for them. But…whatever..try some meditation and holsistic therapy and avoid those dreadful chemicals that can cause thoughts you would never have in your mind otherwise.

    I’m not prone to Alex Jonesesque tin foil hat crap but why does it always seem like anti anxiety and antidepressants seem to make things WORSE?

    • Posted by Nathan LeClair, at Reply

      mmzen Probably because the only time it gets talked about is when something tragic occurs. As someone who has had anxiety and depression for 16 years, anti anxiety meds have helped immensely. These types of meds aren’t always the answer and they can affect everyone differently but stating that they aren’t beneficial at all is ridiculous.

    • Posted by Jonathan Griffith, at Reply

      Nathan LeClair Agreed. People generalize way too much. You have to focus on the individual.

    How many people commited suicide after smoking pot, even a lot of it? 0

    • Posted by John Peltrau, at Reply

      ordinarylover A thousand percent in agreement!

    • Posted by Rania Hamzeh, at Reply

      Weed mimics dopamine so the more you smoke it the less your body naturally makes it. When you body doesn’t make a lot of dopamine, sorry to break it to you, but you aren’t as happy as you could be because your reward system is fucked.

    • Posted by James Biggar, at Reply

      Exactly Beppilepsy, which means that heavy users are likely self medicating a pre-existing condition.

    • Posted by James Biggar, at Reply

      Well after 20+ years my reward system seems to be working just fine. Yes, your body will stop producing as much dopamine when you use a lot of pot because it DOESN’T NEED IT – but it doesn’t destroy your reward system as you’re alluding to. Stop using pot, and your body will start producing more dopamine again. That’s how it works – the human body adapts (SHOCKER) I know acknowledging that last part isn’t very convenient for the naysayer’s argument…..

      The Metro is a right wing propaganda rag that is always doing Marijuana ‘madness’ scare stories. It is not a reputable news paper.

    Several things sound off with this story. His wife had a conversation with him an hour before. She said he told her that he took some extra ativan that the body guard gave him 2. So she knew he was depressed enough to need his meds monitored which is why the body guard had control over his meds. She said he was slurring his speech. She waited an hour before she called his body guard to check on him. 2 Ativan’s do not knock you out or make you totally messed up unless you are drinking with them. He had to have taken more than 2 to be that jacked up. Why wait an hour before you have someone check on him? There had to have been some indication he was emotionally struggling. There is something more here, I hope it gets revealed.

    • Posted by Cmdr Fuzzy Nubbins, at Reply

      Yeah, she’s in denial. It’s the same thing that happens after most suicides. The loved ones claim it’s not part of their personality, meanwhile this person is on meds (which they admit to misusing) and has a documented drinking problem and has probably been waving flags for the last 30 years.

    • Posted by Riptide 10x, at Reply

      The first thing that struck me was that he hung himself yet they found him on the bathroom floor. Sounds like another controlled asphyxiation JO session gone bad.

    • Posted by eriknephron gfr, at Reply

      or suicide, right?

  8. Posted by Michael Vint, at Reply

    My wife is a pharmacist and said the following “Benzo s, unlike ssri’s are not considered to have significant risks that would cause suicide, they have other risks. If he took too many, it would have killed him. Depressed his respiratory system. Especially in conjunction with alcohol. But the chances that Ativan causes suicidal thoughts is rare, unlike anti depressants like Paxil for instance”

    • Posted by Anna Kcmb, at Reply

      Michael Vint I agree. it would do the opposite

    • Posted by eriknephron gfr, at Reply

      Physician x 28 years, never heard or saw that “side effect”. Tell your wife thanks.

    • Posted by NiceJewish Mama, at Reply

      Suicidal ideations while using benzos are as rare as overdose. The old ER joke was that the only way you could die was by choking on the pills.

      To give you an idea of what a toxic dose of Valium is the LD50 for oral Valium is about 1,000 mg/kg. The LD50 (median lethal dose) is a measurement of the dose required to kill half the members of a tested population. So if you weigh 68 kg (150 lbs) it would mean you would have to take 68,000 mg of Valium to have a 50% chance of death. That is 6800 pills or more. The other 50% have a higher threshold and it takes MORE. lol.

      Benzodiazepines are among the safest drugs due to the fact such VAST amounts are required to cause major medical problems.

  9. Posted by GattoNero616, at Reply

    You need to educate yourselves about suicide, family members almost always won’t admit to the fact that their loved ones committed suicide, because of the shame that is involved with the act, and the regular denial mechanism to the loss, people who commit suicide can seem very happy to people right before they do it, and they don’t need to have a real solid objective reason to end their lives, depression can be part of life even if your life seems “objectively” as near perfect.

    The fact that in every suicide story you return to reactions from family members, and to the same old statements that the person that committed suicide “seemed” happy, and had no “reason” to end his life, makes you seem very ignorant.

      There was no reason that Robin Williams or Philip Seymour Hoffman should have committed suicide either. People aren’t sharing everything with everyone. Chris obviously didn’t share everything with his wife.

    cenk you’re dumb. people who take Ativan are clinically depressed and would commit suicide if NOT for the drug.

    • Posted by High Noon, at Reply

      Fabienne Fact!

    • Posted by Laurie Guirguis, at Reply

      Fabienne it is useful for some. But, this wasn’t an extra Ativan or two. This was something stronger.

    • Posted by surgeyX, at Reply

      They gave the security guard the bottle, CC did not have access to the meds. They did this for a reason. He’s a recovering addict. Ativan can be very useful but it’s always a good idea to give someone else control to doll them out if you have had addiction problems in the past.

  14. Posted by Monica Verwegen, at Reply

    Please do not discuss addiction, prescription meds, mental health etc. when you know NOTHING about the topic.

    • Posted by Josil, at Reply

      Monica Verwegen Cenk just said he is no expert on this, but he must still be allowed to discuss the topic even though he is not a pill-popping addict with mental issues himself…

    • Posted by EllerSolsikke, at Reply

      Monica Verwegen I know right. If they MUST comment they should atleast do a tiny bit of research first. There’s also the option of consulting someone who is knowledgable about this. Their wild speculating doesn’t help and is in fact pretty damaging.

    • Posted by Monica Verwegen, at Reply

      Exactly. He stated he knew nothing about it, so why is he then giving a completely uneducated opinion before doing thorough research?

    • Posted by I-Love-CO Mountains, at Reply

      Monica Verwegen
      You can give your opinion of a subject, and what you think, without asking others to believe what you’re saying.
      I think suicide is terrible, I think mental illness is given very little credit or care, yet I have never been diagnosed with a mental illness. So, does that make my opinion or thoughts on the matter irrelevant? I don’t think that you believe it makes them irrelevant. However, if I was telling other people *how to view mental illness,* I would be out of line, since I have no first-hand experience.
      I think Cenk was just saying what he feels about it, not telling others what they should think. *That’s* the difference, and *that’s* where people who know nothing should not be involved: in telling others *what to think* about a subject.
      Does that make sense?

    We live in a society that wants a pill to solve everything. I spent years on pharmaceutical meds for depression and anxiety. I was on them at 14 years old. These meds screw with your brain pathogens – especially in children/teens who are still developing. I have learned to manage my anxiety with natural remedies… acupuncture, relaxation techniques and cognitive behavioral therapy. There are no magic pills. The medications almost always lead to other health conditions.
