Soundgarden Singer and Wife Sued By Former Housekeeper

Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell and his wife Vicky have been sued by their former housekeeper, who claims she was overworked and underpaid. According to TMZ, Elia Mora worked for the Cornells from 2006 to the end of 2011. She alleges that on the day after Christmas (December 26th), she finished her work and left the Cornells’ house, but declined to return to do some additional cleaning. At that point, she claims that Vicky screamed a barrage of insults at her and ended up firing her.

Mora’s lawsuit also claims that she was forced to work 43 hours a week without overtime, and was not given uninterrupted lunches or breaks. It is not clear what damages she is seeking.

The Cornells’ lawyer, Howard King, told TMZ that he thinks the maid and her lawyer were just trying to get some media attention, adding, “The true facts are that Ms. Mora did not work full-time for the Cornells, was not fired by the Cornells and belatedly raises the spurious claims only after another one of her claims, for workers compensation for alleged injuries, was denied.”

The lawsuit comes ahead of the November 13th release of Soundgarden’s new album, King Animal.

The band’s sixth studio album is its first all-new set in 16 years and first since reuniting in 2010.
