SCOTT WEILAND's Widow Claims She Is Owed $64,000 By Dead Singer's Estate

SCOTT WEILAND's Widow Claims She Is Owed $64,000 By Dead Singer's Estate

According to TMZ.com, Scott Weiland's widow, photographer Jamie Wachtel Weiland, has filed a claim against his estate saying the late STONE TEMPLE PILOTS singer owes her $64,406.

Jamie says she and Scott signed a prenuptial agreement before their 2013 wedding which provided that the musician would put $2,000 into a separate account each month that they were married, with a provision that the amount would increase by seven percent annually. But Jamie says Scott had only made two deposits by the time he died in December 2015.

TMZ says that the document was "cut and dried," stating "what was his before the marriage remained his, and vice versa." In addition, the agreement waived Jamie's right to spousal support.

Scott Weiland's second wife Mary Forsberg filed court documents on December 30 asking to be named the executor of Weiland's will. She also filed a copy of the will, written in April 2007, with his signature as proof. The will was reportedly written just seven months before the couple separated and later divorced.

Weiland's estate is reportedly worth $2 million. There is also said to be a trust with undisclosed assets.

Mary Forsberg was Weiland's second wife and mother to his children, Noah and 13-year-old Lucy. His first marriage to Janina Castenada lasted from 1994 to 2000.

Forsberg posted a brutally candid letter about Scott at RollingStone.com following his death, writing that his children "lost their father years ago. What they truly lost on December 3rd was hope."

Weiland was found dead on his tour bus at the age of 48 from a toxic mix of drugs and alcohol. The vocalist was also dealing with self-medication, estrangement from his children, financial difficulties and a steadily increasing drinking problem.

Jamie told Billboard in a recent interview that Scott had been experiencing episodes of paranoia and mania caused by bipolar disorder.

She explained: "At one point, it was so bad I had to move out because he was unstable." Eventually they found a medication that leveled him out, with Jamie adding "For the last couple of years, he was doing pretty great."

Scott's last text to Jamie was on the morning of December 3, when he wrote, "I'm so in love with my beautiful wife."

Jamie also opened up in the article about the legal battle with Mary over his estate, saying, "I don't know under what mattress she thinks she's going to find $2 million, because it sure as shit isn't here… He was broke."
