Chris Cornell’s Family Reach Settlement With Doctor Who Prescribed The Singer Drugs

According to Deadline, Chris Cornell’s family have reached a settlement with the late Soundgarden frontman’s former doctor Robert Koblin. This news comes after Cornell’s widow Vicky previously filed a malpractice suit against Koblin after accusing him of prescribing drugs that led to the singer’s suicide.

Attorneys for the Cornell family had the following to say in some court papers:

“After years of litigation and settlement negotiations, plaintiffs and (Dr. Robert Koblin and Robertson Cardiovascular Center LLC) have reached a confidential settlement agreement to resolve all claims asserted by each plaintiff. Unfortunately, as with many celebrity cases, this action has also attracted the attention of troubled individuals who have harassed plaintiffs, including by threatening the life and safety of plaintiffs Toni Cornell and Christopher Nicholas Cornell.”

Vicky originally filed the suit due to Koblin allegedly prescribing Chris 940 doses of the anti-anxiety drug Lorazepam (aka Ativan) and doses of Oxycodone during the last 20 months of his life. The suit went on to say that the doctor was writing prescriptions without re-examining Chris, despite the fact that he had a history of addiction. It also mentioned that Lorazepam can lead to impaired judgment and increased suicide risks in those that are prone to addiction and that Koblin did not warn Chris about the increased risk of suicidal thoughts.

For his part, Koblin claimed that Chris was aware of the dangers associated with the anti-anxiety medication he was prescribed and that he asked to “not to be informed” of potential side effects. He was also previously seeking to have the suit dismissed, saying that he was covered by a malpractice law that protects doctors during the death’s of certain patients.

Chris Cornell’s Widow Confirms Volume Two Of “No One Sings Like You Anymore” Is In The Works

Chris Cornell’s widow Vicky Cornell has confirmed that the late frontman’s estate is planning to release a second volume of his covers album “No One Sings Like You Anymore.” The first volume was digitally released in December and physical copies are set to be released on March 19. Vicky told 105.7 The Point’s “The Rizzuto Show” the following about the follow-up:

“There is a volume two. The thing with this volume one, though, that makes it special is that he mastered it, he sequenced it — this is all Chris from beginning to end. And the other one was mastered, not sequenced, volume two. And then, because he was just such a prolific writer, we’re blessed, because he has left us lots of music. Not in completely finished form, but there’s enough to work with, and the Cornell stamp is all over it. So that’s really special. So there’s a lot of music.”

This moment is bittersweet because he should be here doing it himself, but it is with both heartache and joy that we share this special album. All of us could use his voice to help heal and lift us this year, especially during the holiday season. I am so proud of him and this stunning record, which to me illustrates why he will always be beloved, honored, and one the greatest voices of our time.”

His daughter Toni also commented:

“When my dad was making this album, it was so fun – I remember waking up in the morning, having breakfast with him and going with him into the studio. We would take our piano lessons there, and Christopher would play video games with Brendan and my dad. We got to experience so much with him and have so many amazing memories. I’m really happy to be sharing this album. We love you, daddy”

His son Christopher added:

“We had so much fun in the studio during this time, and on days off we’d go to Tree People and hike around there. We would also play hide and go seek inside the Beverly Hills Hotel and when security would show up they would think it was so funny that my dad was running through fire escapes with us. For me, this album represents who my dad was. I’m really proud of him and his work. I hope you all love this record as much as I do.”
