She has ever had a special meaning in his heart. And she has also helped him propelling his career, well at least she's been his manager. But, those apparently do not prevent former Soundgarden lead singer Chris Cornell to sue his ex-wife/former manager Susan J. Silver, seeking for more than $1 million in damages.
In his suit, filed November 28 in California Superior Court in Los Angeles, Cornell claimed that Silver "conspired with other representatives of Soundgarden to direct funds owed to (Cornell)" to other members of the band. Further, he also accused Silver of failing to advise him to "protect his interests in copyrighted musical compositions that were created prior to the marriage."
Also the suit argued that Silver's "personal animus" to Cornell has profited her possession of a number of items of "significant monetary and personal value" to the singer. Among the items are two Grammy awards, various demo tapes, personal recordings, journals and music sheets. Additionally to that of his $1 million demand, Cornell is asking for a declaration that Silver should be barred from representing other Soundgarden members due to an "irreconcilable conflict of interest."
