Chris Cornell: Final Conversation with Wife Revealed, Chilling

by at .  Updated at .

A day after penning an open letter to her late husband, the wife of Chris Cornell has spoken in detail about the final conversation she had with the rocker.

And she has revealed a number of chilling details in the process.

Chris Cornell, Vicky

On Wednesday, Cornell's wife Vicky released a lengthy message to the late singer, who hanged himself in a Detroit hotel room earlier this month.

"We had the time of our lives in the last decade and I'm sorry, my sweet love, that I did not see what happened to you that night," she wrote.

In her letter, first posted by Billboard, she said, "I'm sorry you were alone, and I know that was not you, my sweet Christopher."

"Your children know that too, so you can rest in peace."

The rocker, who was 52 years old when he died, had two children with Vicky as well as a third child from a previous relationship.

Meanwhile, on Thursday night, TMZ published new excerpts from Vicky's final conversation with Cornell, and they are chilling.

According to the website, the conversation took place by phone approximately a half hour before Cornell ended his own life.

According to friends, Vicky says Cornell started slurring his words as he expressed anger over the set he had just played in Detroit.

"They f-cked up again. They had 3 days to fix my in-ears and I was getting static. I couldn't hear," Chris complained to Vicky.

Over and over, he said, "I blew my voice. I blew my voice."

Cornell then changed the topic abruptly, making very little sense to his wife, who could sense something was seriously wrong.

"I need to know what you took tonight," Vicky asked, well aware of Cornell's history of drug abuse. You don't sound right, sweetheart."

Replied the singer, famous for the iconic bands Soundgarden and Audioslave: "I was really angry and I just took 2 Ativan."

"I'm really pissed and I had to calm myself down."

But Vicky pressed for more information, saying later that it really didn't sound like Cornell merely took Ativan that night.

She also made a point ahead of time of saying "I forgive you" to Chris for the long-sober musician falling off the wagon.

TMZ writes that Cornell grew "cocky and aggressive," which prompted Vicky to flash back in her mind to 14 years ago.

In the early 2000s, he almost died from an Oxycontin overdose.

After Cornell continued to ramble incoherently, Vicky called the star's bodyguard and demanded he go check on Cornell.

The bodyguard eventually knocked down two doors to get inside Cornell's hotel room... and saw the singer's body hanging in the bathroom.

In a disturbing new detail only just revealed now, Vicky was apparently still on the phone with the bodyguard when this horrible discovery took place.

"I will think of you every minute of every day and I will fight for you," Vicky wrote in her aforementioned open letter, concluding as follows:

I’m broken, but I will stand up for you and I will take care of our beautiful babies. You were right when you said we are soulmates.

It has been said that paths that have crossed will cross again, and I know that you will come find me, and I will be here waiting.

I love you more than anyone has ever loved anyone in the history of loving and more than anyone ever will. Always and forever, your Vicky.

Insiders connected with the investigation told TMZ that emergency technicians who responded to the scene saw fresh track marks on Cornell’s arm.

Vicky has said he wasn't known to have used needles in his earlier substance abuse battles and she had just been walking with him the day before.

She says that her spouse was wearing short sleeves and there were no signs at that time of track marks on his arms that she noticed.

It's all very sad.

We continue to send our sincere condolences to the loved ones of Chris Cornell and we hope he's resting in peace at last.
