Vicky says she never knew Chris to use needles and says just before he left for Detroit that afternoon, he was walking the streets of NY with her in a t-shirt and there was no evidence of track marks on his body.
Outside the gates, Melody Andrade and her 4-year-old son Jude paid their respects to Cornell. "I needed some closure on this". According to organisers, the private service was attended by the musician's former band members as well as A-list of celebrities which included Brad Pitt, Courtney Love and Christian Bale, who starred in "The Promise", a movie about the Armenian genocide that Cornell composed the music for.
Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil and drummer Matt Cameron, Audioslave co-founder Tom Morello and actor Josh Brolin offered eulogies, and Linkin Park's Chester Bennington sang "Hallelujah", USA Today reported.
Cornell will now keep company with such Tinseltown legends as Jayne Mansfield and Rudolph Valentino, and punk pioneer Johnny Ramone, who are all buried at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.More news: Lyon beats PSG to claim 4th Women's Champions League title
"It's totally out of character for the Chris that I've known and worked with for the last 10 years", his longtime manager, Ron Laffitte, told CNN ahead of Cornell's private funeral on Friday in Los Angeles.
He allegedly responded, "I was really angry and I just took 2 Ativan".
Pasich told Billboard that he was not aware of anyone noticing marks on Cornell's arm before or during his last performance, nor did he believe any drug paraphernalia was recovered from the the room where Cornell was found. That caused suspicion, since Cornell and Soundgarden had been on stage at the Fox Theater at the time.

"I'm broken, but I will stand up for you and I will take care of our handsome babies", she wrote.
The musician's widow and two youngest children also attended. Toxicology tests have not yet come back, the coroner said. Cornell gained fame as one of the pioneers of the grunge rock scene as a singer for Audioslave, Temple of the Dog and, most famously, Soundgarden.
