SCOTT WEILAND's Estate Ordered To Pay $4,000 A Month To Singer's Children

According to MyNewsLA.com, Scott Weiland's estate has been ordered by a judge to pay $4,000 a month to the late STONE TEMPLE PILOTS singer's children.

Noah, 17, and Lucy, 15 will each receive the allowance until he or she turns 18. They each also will no longer receive payments if they die, become legally "emancipated" or the estate is terminated.

The two children's mother and Scott's first wife, Mary Weiland, filed court documents stating that his estate has a value of about $1.6 million with an average annual royalties income of almost $265,000. In addition, the estate has a $645,5000 debt to City National Bank and is negotiating for a resolution of an unnamed "significant federal creditor" claim for $700,000.

A January 2016 report from Billboard revealed that Scott was dealing with hepatitis C, mental illness and the knowledge that both his parents had cancer in the final months of his life. The article featured interviews with Scott's widow Jamie, his mother Sharon, his WILDABOUTS bandmates Tommy Black and Nick Maybury, tour manager Aaron Mohler and others.

Weiland was found dead on his tour bus in December 2015 at the age of 48 from a toxic mix of drugs and alcohol. The vocalist was also dealing with self-medication, estrangement from his children, financial difficulties and a steadily increasing drinking problem. Mohler said: "If I had known he was going to die, I would have taken every bottle away from him and thrown it. Just broke it right there."

Jamie said that Scott had been experiencing episodes of paranoia and mania caused by bipolar disorder.

She explained: "At one point, it was so bad I had to move out because he was unstable." Eventually they found a medication that leveled him out, with Jamie adding "For the last couple of years, he was doing pretty great."

Jamie also opens up in the article about the legal battle with Weiland's ex-wife Mary over his estate, saying: "I don't know under what mattress she thinks she's going to find $2 million, because it sure as shit isn't here. He was broke."
