Mary Forsberg, ex-wife of late Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver singer Scott Weiland, filed court documents on December 30th asking to be named the executor of Weiland’s will, according to People.com. She also filed a copy of the will, written in April 2007, with his signature as proof. The will was reportedly written just seven months before the couple separated and later divorced.
Weiland’s estate is reportedly worth $2 million. There is also said to be a trust with undisclosed assets.
Mary Forsberg was Weiland’s second wife and mother to his children, 15-year-old Noah and 13-year-old Lucy. He was married to Jamie Wachtel Weiland, whom he wed in 2013, at the time of his death. His first marriage to Janina Castenada lasted from 1994 to 2000.
Forsberg posted a brutally candid letter about Scott at RollingStone.com following his death on December 3rd, writing that his children “lost their father years ago. What they truly lost on December 3rd was hope.”
Scott Weiland was found dead on his tour bus on December 3rd in Minnesota. He was 48 years old. The medical examiner said a mix of cocaine, alcohol and the drug ecstasy led to the singer’s death.
Meanwhile, a new report at Star-Tribune.com has revealed more details about the night of Scott’s death. According to the report, tour manager Aaron Mohler went to check on Scott after his wife Jamie became worried that she hadn’t heard from him. Mohler attempted to shake Scott awake and realized he wasn’t breathing. After he and drummer Joey Castillo attempted to rouse Scott again, they called 911.
Investigators found marijuana, prescription drugs, and cocaine on the bus. Band and crew told police that Weiland had been drinking vodka and tequila heavily, was taking the heroin-blocker Subloxone and prescriptions, and had used cocaine as recently as a week before his death. He also took a drug called “Molly” a day or two earlier.
The police report noted that all of the band and crew members were “visibly upset,” but added that Weiland’s bassist and longtime friend Tommy Black said he was “not surprised that Weiland had died.”
