By Staff Reporter

Rock star Chris Cornell's widow has penned a letter addressed to the late Soundgarden frontman, days after he took his own life.

Vicky Cornell wrote in the message published online by Billboard that she was sorry she did not "see what happened to you that night".

She added: "I'm sorry you were alone, and I know that was not you, my sweet Christopher."

While she said she was "broken", she added she would "stand up" for her late husband and take care of their two children.

Cornell was pronounced dead on May 18 after being found unresponsive in his Detroit hotel room. The Wayne County medical examiner's office said the 52-year-old took his own life.
