Chris Cornell has been gone for more than two years, but a new argument over his ex-wife, daughter, and widow has broken out.
Chris and his ex-wife, Susan Silver made a deal on the divorce in 2004 that he would pay the college cost of her daughter Lilly . We have learned that Chris has established a trust company for study and other expenses and that the money will be distributed as needed.
Lilly filed a lawsuit with Chris in the estate lawsuit asking for money to cover study and other expenses. Days after the application was filed, the representative of the estate objected to the action.
Cornell family sources report that TMZ enrolled Lily at a California college last year and the Trust paid her $ 21,000 for each semester. After the first week of classes in the second semester, we were told that Lilly was breaking off. According to our sources, a Lilly representative sent an email to the Trust in March – we were notified of a controversial email – and made sure the payment was made. The trust, administered by Chris' widow Vickey, called the school and found that she had dropped out of school. But her position is that there will be no more payments until there is evidence that Lilly is back in school. If the school received a refund for the semester in which Lilly left off, the money would flow directly to her, in which case the Trust would deduct that amount from future tuition.
The estate judge has not yet done so.
We have reached Lily's lawyers, but none of them have been heard.
