Scott Weiland: My Family Is Like the Cleavers

Posted on

Five months after his wife set fire to his designer suits and was arrested for felony arson, Velvet Revolver frontman Scott Weiland says his life has settled down.

“There’s definitely a Cleaver sense about our household,” Weiland, 39, tells Reuters. “We get our kids to bed at 8 p.m. We tuck them in. We lay down with them at night. There are three square meals – the whole shebang.

It was a much less peaceful scene over the weekend of March 17th, when a massive weekend-long fight lead to a pair of smashed hotel rooms and thousands of dollars worth of Scott’s prized men’s wear going up in smoke.

At the time Mary Weiland, 41, claimed the incidents were brought about by “an imbalance in medications used to treat my bipolar disorder.”

The Weilands have continued to try to work things out. “We’re incredible soulmates,” says Scott, who is about to launch a three-month tour supporting Velvet Revolver’s second album, Libertad. “But we’re both a little bit crazy.”

Adds Weiland, who plans to take Mary and their children, Noah, 6, and Lucy, 4, on the road with the band, “We’re best friends, we’re lovers, we’re husband and wife. But in a sense we’re both tortured souls.”
