The children of Scott Weiland have had multiple lawsuits filed on their behalf over the alleged unauthorized use of their late father’s name to sell a variety of merchandise.

According to My News LA, Weiland’s former wife Mary filed the lawsuits against several companies in the name of their two children, 16-year-old son Noah and 15-year-old daughter Lucy. Named in the two suits are Merchbar Inc., RageOn! Inc.,, Red Fox Ink and Officially Licensed Gear. Filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, the suits seek unspecified damages and a court order enjoining the companies from furthering such activities without the plaintiffs’ consent.

The singer’s teenage children own all rights publicity associated with their late father, according to the suit, which alleges the named companies have used Weiland’s name, photo and likeness more than 100 times to sell such items as clothing, household items, cell phone cases and a children’s set of stackable wooden blocks.

Weiland was the former singer and a founding member of Stone Temple Pilots as well as the ex-vocalist for Velvet Revolver at the time of his death in December of 2015. The enigmatic frontman had been on tour with his solo outfit Scott Weiland & the Wildabouts. He was found unresponsive on his tour bus prior to a show in Minnesota. Later, it was determined that he had died from an accidental overdose of cocaine, alcohol and methylenedioxyamphetamine (MDA).
