Hold the phone- Brittany Murphy would not approve.
Chris Cornell + Craigslist yank wedding video with Brittany Murphy
Rocker CHRIS CORNELL is reportedly fuming after video footage showing tragic actress BRITTANY MURPHY partying at his wedding surfaced online.
Clips from the Soundgarden star's 2004 nuptials to his wife Vicky, whose maid of honour was the late Clueless star, were said to have been put up for sale on a website.
Cornell, who alleges the video was stolen, has threatened to sue the online ad site and even asked its owners to hand over the details of the person selling the tape, according to the New York Post.
A source tells the newspaper, "The video features behind-the-scenes wedding moments, many of Brittany Murphy."
The ad has since been removed.
Murphy died after suffering a cardiac arrest early last month.
A bit more from the New York Post:
Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell and his wife, Vicky, are furious after discovering their wedding video was being offered on Craigslist as macabre "lost" footage of dead starlet Brittany Murphy, who was a maid of honor at their 2004 ceremony.
Cornell claimed the video was stolen and he threatened to sue the popular site, which has removed the video from sale. A source said, "The video features behind-the-scenes wedding moments, many of Brittany Murphy." He asked Craigslist to hand over details of the seller, arguing that it's a federal crime because it's considered stolen copyright.
Cornell's rep couldn't be reached, and a Craigslist rep didn't get back to us.
Well-done Mr. Cornell, well-done.
Also, we need a Brittany Murphy tag, y/y?
Forget the tag- geez! :) I just like organizing stuff, and it being easy to tell if an article has been posted. So back to Chris Cornell being awesome for yanking the video...
ETA: So why a tag? Because Brittany has 4 movies that have yet to come out, possibly an album, plus toxicology results and official cause of death to be determined. Lots of posts. And if 'N Synch, Al Roker, Haylie Duff, Xzibit and Star Jones all merit having tags, why not Brittany?
