The widow of US singer Chris Cornell is suing his doctor, accusing him of overprescribing drugs that ultimately led to his death in 2017, the BBC reports.
Vicki Cornell alleges that Dr Robert Koblin “negligently and repeatedly” prescribed the singer “dangerous mind-altering controlled substances.”
Cornell was found in a Detroit hotel room and his death was ruled a suicide.
Traces of several drugs were found in his body – but a coroner’s report said the drugs were not a cause of death.
Cornell was the lead vocalist of Soundgarden band. He died aged 52.
Chris Cornell, who sadly passed away in May, wrote the title song for the film, The Promise, the first major Hollywood film about the Armenian genocide. The song and its video fittingly weave the genocide with humanitarian crises of today.
The song focuses on courage, perseverance, and hope – connecting with emotions that characterize and amplify the worldwide struggle for human rights.
Cornell donated all proceeds from the song to benefit refugees and children, and his song continues to inspire millions as an anthem for the human rights movement.
