Scott Weiland’s Ex-Wife Files Legal Docs to be Named Executor of His Will

The former Stone Temple Pilots frontman died from an overdose of alcohol, cocaine and ecstasy on Dec. 3

Scott Weiland’s ex-wife Mary Forsberg has filed a lawsuit at the Los Angeles Superior Court asking to be named the executor of the former Stone Temple Pilots frontman’s will.

Forsberg, who was Weiland’s second wife and married to him from 2000 to 2007, also filed a signed copy of his will that was written in April 2007, in which the rocker named her as executor.

Weiland, 48, had been married to his third wife, Jamie Wachtel, for two years at the time of his death on Dec. 3 from an overdose of alcohol, cocaine and ecstasy

He had two children, Noah and Lucy, with Forsberg (pictured above with him in February 2007), who wrote a heartbreaking letter to Rolling Stone soon after his passing, saying “they lost their father years ago. What they truly lost on December 3rd was hope.”

Weiland had around $2 million in his estate and also created a trust that has undisclosed assets, according to legal documents obtained by TheWrap.

The Velvet Revolver member was on tour with his new band, The Wildabouts, when he was found dead on their tour bus on Dec. 3 before a scheduled show in Bloomington, Minnesota.

In December 2007, the singer was arrested and charged with DUI, and the following February he checked into rehab for a month. While he continued to battle his addictions to drugs, including heroin, Weiland told Rolling Stone magazine earlier last year that he had been clean for a number of years.

Forsberg is represented by attorney Daniel C. Lorenzen of Venable LLP.
