Reports Emerge Of Drugs On Scott Weiland’s Tour Bus, Wife Denies They Are His


Late Stone Temple Pilots/Velvet Revolver frontman Scott Weiland‘s past history and struggles with substance abuse are well-known and have led to much speculation surrounding the circumstances of his death yesterday, December 03rd. Thus far it has been established that his death was the result of a cardiac arrest, though the exact cause will take time to determine.

TMZ are now claiming to have heard from sources that drugs were found on the bus. The site have also talked to Weiland‘s widow, Jamie Weiland, who insists the drugs were not Scott‘s. She went on to mention that he and the members of his band The Wildabouts had a pact to not do drugs—a pact which apparently was broken. Jamie was on tour with the group as late as a week ago and was quoted as saying “he was the best he has ever been.”

TMZ are also reporting that other musicians have informed them that Weiland had allegedly been indulging in crack cocaine in recent days. Referring to Weiland‘s behavior right around his infamous Corpus Christi, TX performance this past April, Texan booking agent Jason Price told today (December 04th) of Weiland at the time:

“He really went downhill and asked for drugs several times that day. He would forget that he just asked you. Definitely a sad thing to see the rise and fall of such a talent.”

This past June, Weiland told Loudwire that he had been off drugs for 13 years.
