Mourning the Loss of Scott Weiland's Wardrobe

03/28/2007 at 12:00 PM ET

When the news hit that Mary Weiland, wife of Velvet Revolver’s front man Scott Weiland, was arrested for burning $10,000 worth of the singer’s wardrobe outside of their San Fernando Valley home, reaction ranged from sadness (the Weiland’s two young children are now in the custody of family friends) to puzzlement: how could Scott Weiland possibly have that much invested in his couture? Style watchers aren’t surprised — Weiland is a fashion week regular, the current face of designer John Varvatos and has long considered himself a clothes horse since he abandoned the grunge look of his original band, Stone Temple Pilots. He may go shirtless on stage, but on the red carpet he is known for his impeccably tailored British suits from Ozwald Boateng or Paul Smith and artfully combining jeans with a tuxedo jacket or artfully undone tie. For those who dare say that his wife might have done him a favor, we remind you that Weiland brought the vested suit in to the rock arena long before Justin Timberlake made them ubiquitous.

Oh yeah, the clothes are the most tragic part of this story. You can’t see me rolling my eyes.

“Wow”, his wife is one jealous woman!! it’s just not worth sitting in jail for a stupid crime like that maybe he is better off with out her!

I agree with Alice. Who cares about the clothes!!! Im sure this man has plenty of more money to waste on $10,000 worth of clothes. And why are his children with family friends? Cant he take care of them? Pathetic.

I am sorry but this story is hilarious!! The real question is, what did he do to his wife to make her go Angela Bassett on him as in “Waiting to Exhale??

She should of just cut the crotch out of his pants can’t get introuble for that.

Rumor has it they had a disagreement in a hotel suite, she trashed the suite and then proceeded to burn his clothes at his home. You know, ladies, sometimes guys definitely deserve the cold shoulder but this is basically an act of violence. Would you say that a woman who pissed off her man deserved to get hit? No. Likewise, no matter what he did, he didn’t deserve her little tantrum either.

His wife just wanted more closet space to herself and he just didn’t listen….that’s all!!!
