Los Angeles, CA (CNS) - Rocker Scott Weiland's estranged wife is releasing a tell-all book about her marriage to the Stone Temple Pilots frontman.

Mary Weiland, nee Forsberg, will publish her memoir "Fall to Pieces" on October 27 via William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.

The tome is expected to detail her life with Weiland through their marriage's extreme highs and lows.

The press release of the book reads, "A visceral, rollercoaster ride inside bipolar disorder, rock 'n roll, celebrity culture, and the competitive world of modeling from a rock star wife and recovering drug addict."

"On the surface, Mary Weiland had a fairytale life. She was a highly paid fashion model married to successful rock star Scott Weiland, the notorious frontman for Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver. Then came the rampage in a Burbank hotel room and the resulting media frenzy that revealed to the world her bipolar disorder and drug abuse."

The former couple, who share two children together, married in 2000 and separated in 2007. They are currently in the process of getting a divorce.

Scott Weiland Speaks out about Wife's

Rocker SCOTT WEILAND has launched a response to the news his estranged wife is planning to write a tell-all about her life with him, urging fans not to assume the tome will be full of infidelity stories and hell.
The Stone Temple Pilots frontman admits he has yet to read the book and suggests he's not looking forward to doing so - but he doesn't want the public automatically assuming they know what his soon-to-be ex, model Mary Forsburg, will be revealing in her book, Fall To Pieces, which is scheduled for release in October (09).
In a statement from the rock star, he is cryptic about the reasons for his failed marriage, but states, "What I want everyone to know (is) that it (book) has nothing to do with infidelity. Neither the divorce nor the book. Please don't place the red letter upon my children's mother."
And it seems Weiland hasn't quite given up on his marriage just yet.
He adds, "My love for her (Forsburg) will never end. We just forgot how to be friends. She has now chosen a public career and one that brings both accolades and public scrutiny. There will be more of this sort of thing to deal with as time goes by... both good and bad.
"Divorce is hell, I remember it well and we deal with it every day. And, if you think about it, we both have our 'what-ifs' and 'why-nots...' All I ask is to not see her cry."
It's not the first time Forsburg, who suffers from bipolar disorder, has filed for divorce - she called off a legal split several years ago; the couple has been estranged twice before.
The new book is described as a "visceral rollercoaster ride inside bipolar disorder, rock 'n' roll, celebrity culture, and the competitive world of modelling from a rock star wife and recovering drug addict."
