Christina Applegate shares her daughter’s surprising fashion connection with Scott Weiland

Christina Applegate took to social media on Tuesday (Jan. 17) to spill the tea on how to off Scott Weiland‘s suits ended up in her daughter’s possession.

“Just a fun fact, the suit my kid is wearing was Scott Weiland’s suit from one of his solo album covers,” she wrote on Twitter alongside a photo with her daughter Sadie at the Critics Choice Awards. “Scott gave my husband, Martyn, that suit a long time ago in the glorious 90s… We were a couple last night too. She broke her ankle this week, hence the boot, and me…MS.” In the photo, Applegate – who revealed her multiple sclerosis diagnosis in 2021 – leans on a cane while her daughter wears a mask with a black pageant’s cap pulled down over her eyes and a boot on her broken foot.

The late Stone temple pilots frontman released his debut solo album, 12 bar blues, in 1998. And indeed, the pin-striped suit worn by 11-year-old Sadie Grace LeNoble in Applegate’s Twitter snap is a dead ringer for the ensemble Weiland sports for the cover of the album’s only single, “Barbarella.” (The song became a minor hit upon release, peaking in the top 40 on the Alternative Airplay chart.)

Applegate’s husband, Martyn LeNoble, was the founder of Porno for Pyros, the Perry Ferrell-led band that certainly ran in the same circles as Weiland.

Weiland, who died in 2015 of an accidental overdose, went on to release three more solo albums between his work with Stone Temple Pilots, Velvet Revolver and the short-lived side project Art of Anarchy. His sophomore effort, “Happy” in galoshescame in 2008, a full decade after its predecessor’s release, followed by 2011’s The most wonderful time of the year and the 2015s Blaster with backing band The Wildabouts.

Back in 2021, Dark Pictures announced it was to develop a film titled Paper heartbased on Weiland’s life.
