Hey, don't take my word for it. Here's what Mary Forsberg Weiland had to say:
[...] she writes of Scott’s “paranoid fits” while she herself faced depression, saying, “There were times that Child Protective Services did not allow him to to be alone with them.” She says that when he remarried — to photographer Jamie Wachtel, in 2013 — “The children were replaced. They were not invited to his wedding; child support checks often never arrived…. They have never set foot into his house, and they can’t remember the last time they saw him on a Father’s Day.”
Oh, but he was the "voice" of his generation. Fuck that. What a complete and utter asshole. Being high all the time didn't do that. He had a serious character defect that went beyond simple addiction.
