Scott Weiland's widow says late Stone Temple Pilots frontman died from other causes, not from an overdose

In a recent interview (Appetite for Distortion podcast) Scott Weiland's widow, Jamie Weiland, said...

"When [Scott] died, everybody was kind of like, 'That's tragic, but, of course, he overdosed,' which he didn't f****** overdose ... he didn't. Because he had drugs in his system, the coroner had to rule it an overdose, but the truth is Scott died because the main artery in his left ventricle was 95% blocked. That came from 10 years of heroine use. That came from an entire adult life of chain-smoking. His heart stopped. That was not an overdose. He was not using heroin, he did not overdose on drugs. His heart stopped because his heart had been through so much abuse. Because of prior drug use in his life, and smoking, and heavy drinking. Did [Scott] have trace amounts of drugs in his system? He did. Did I know he was using? No, I didn't, because he lied to me."

Following his passing in December 2015, it was ruled that Weiland died of an accidental mixed drug toxicity involving cocaine, alcohol and the drug MDA. The report also noted asthma, cardiovascular disease and Weiland's years of drug use as significant conditions.
