But Vicky claims to DailyMail.com that she has ‘paid every penny of child support’ – even though she has no legal obligation to do so

Chris Cornell’s Daughter Puts College On Hold To Deal With ‘Mental And Emotional Health’
Chris Cornell’s daughter is shutting down the gossip about her not being in school.
Lily Cornell Silver took to her Instagram Stories on Wednesday to set the record straight: “I did not ‘drop out of college’ (although it shouldn’t matter if I did).”
She continued, “I took a temporary leave of absence to tend to my mental and emotional health, which was in part damaged by those who are gossiping about me. Shaming anyone for deciding to postpone [their] education in order to take care of themselves — which should always be the first priority — is cruel and a huge part of the reason why mental health continues to be a worldwide issue and is so stigmatized.
“Think twice before you judge somebody for experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, etc., and taking a step back to practise self-care as opposed to forcing themselves through it.”
In a separate post, Cornell Silver said, “Mental health and education are two things I take very seriously, which happens to be how I graduated with a 4.0. Nice try tho.”
