Chris Cornell‘s widow says Soundgarden doesn’t give a rat’s ass about her elderly mother, asking her to sit for a deposition despite coronavirus risks … but the band’s attorneys are calling BS.
Vicky Cornell claims Soundgarden is ignoring the dangers of the virus — especially among the elderly — because they’re making a push to get Vicky’s mom to sit for a proper grilling by their attorneys.
In docs, obtained by TMZ, Vicky claims Soundgarden is “callously insisting on the immediate deposition” of Vicky’s mother who is “an elderly, at-risk individual.” What’s more … Vicky’s accusing Soundgarden of taking advantage of the pandemic by refusing to play nice on any of the deadlines in the case.
She says, for example, Soundgarden has “leveraged the COVID-19 epidemic for vexatious ends.” Soundgarden, however, claims it’s been willing to make accommodations.
An attorney for the band tells TMZ … they have made it very clear to Vicky and her legal team they are willing to do the deposition at her home, or at Vicky’s attorney’s office … or even through a video conference to help minimize any risks associated.
