The Weilands Are Divorcing

Stone Temple Pilots singer's wife files for divorce

September 26, 2002 12:00 AM ET

Mary Weiland, the wife of Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland, filed for divorce after two years of marriage on September 24th. The filing cited irreconcilable differences, and Mary is seeking spousal and child support and full custody of their children, one-year-old son Noah and two-month-old daughter Lucy.

Weiland pled guilty to a domestic battery charge last December for an incident a month earlier at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Mary Weiland tried to prevent her husband from leaving their room at the hotel to pick up a prescription, prompting him to push her against a wall and step on her. She then notified a hotel security person, who contacted local police.

In 1999, Weiland was sentenced to a year in prison after violating his probation stemming from prior drug possession charges. He was released last January and married Mary Forsberg the following May.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
