Audioslave Singer Allegedly Stalked By Man With Gun

12/13/2007 8:44 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained court documents outlining a terrifying series of events that have left former Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman Chris Cornell and his family in terror. Cornell is seeking a restraining order against a man who they say was hired to do the dirty work of the woman to whom Cornell was once married.
Read the documents
According to documents, filed yesterday in L.A. County Superior Court, Cornell claims his ex-wife, Seattle music legend Susan Silver, has sent his family "numerous threatening and terrifying death threats." According to the docs, Silver has even threatened to harm Chris' two-year-old son. It has become so terrifying LAPD's Threat Management Unit has taken the case.

According to the documents, Silver hired Mathew Turner, an ex-sheriff's deputy who caries a concealed weapon, "to harass the Cornell family, under the guise of being a process server." The legal papers go on: "Mr. Turner has continually harassed, frightened and stalked the Cornell family at all hours of the day and night, and even broke into their home, wandered from room to room and urinated in their home." Cornell's mega-lawyer, Marty Singer, alleges that Turner lingered inside the Cornell family home and refused to leave.

The Cornell family is asking a judge to order Turner to stay at least 100 yards away from them.

REDD; although I wrote quite a post, it doesn't seem to appear. Interesting twist. You however said it for me. I wonder if we shouldn't create a revolution to free Chris Cornell. This is a cry that I think bleeds through. Susan Silver is a mensch.

It would be nice if TMZ followed up this report with the fact that the judge in this suit found that there was no merit or ANY substantiating evidence found to support this insane claim so the mighty accusing Cornell's LOST THIS SUIT. The judgement was found in favor of the poor process server who was wrongly accused and NOT the Cornell's who are just looking for press and to slander others good name.

Move on people and if you feel so motivated to be in the press, why not try spending your money to help others instead of stupid, unfounded lawsuits which are embroiled in the past.

This is to the Susan Summer advertiser. Sus is so covered with plastic surgery it is laughable. Her skin is so sun damaged, but she is still attractive. Hope she can fix the sun damage. In the mean time stay off theboard with the advertizing
