Vicky Cornell has claimed that Soundgarden want to “maliciously defame her,” adding that they want to “harrass” her children. Cornell is being taken to court by the band, who's accusing her of locking them of the band's website and social media accounts.
According to NME, in court papers filed in Washington D.C., band members Kim Thayil, Matt Cameron and Ben Shepherd, as well as their business manager Rit Venerus, accused Cornell of locking them out of their Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vimeo, YouTube, Snapchat, Tumblr, Top Spin and Pinterest accounts. They also accused her of changing the passwords to the band’s website.
In a new statement, Cornell's lawyer Marty Singer denied the claims, saying that Vicki had been “growing” the band’s social media accounts, and said the latest lawsuit is an attempt to “defame” Vicky and “harass” her children.
