The Vicky Karayiannis s of Dating (Relationship)
Vicky first met Chris Cornell in 2003, while he was on tour in Paris, at the Hotel Plaza Athénée, a fancy five-star hotel near the Champs-Elysées.
Chris and his band “Audioslave” hosted an after-party there, and Vicky was invited because she helped organize the celebration. Chris was married to his first wife, Sarah Silver, the manager of “Alice In Chains” firm, but they split in 2004, after which Chris proposed to Vicky with a massive diamond ring from Harry Winston. They married the same year, in a secret ceremony attended by only close friends and family. Toni, their daughter, was born in September 2004. Their second child, a son called Christopher Nicholas, was born a year later in December 2005. Chris also has a daughter from his first marriage, Lilian Jean, who was born in 2000.
Vicky was given a Harry Winston ring as an engagement ring, but Chris proposed on the spur of the moment, without even having a suitable ring. He arrived at the Beverly Hills hotel where Vicky was staying and awakened her, telling her she needed to return his necklace.
Despite Vicky’s lack of comprehension, he continued to cut the necklace off and take the silver ring that hung on it, saying, ‘I woke up and had the craziest vision of doing this.’ I don’t have a real ring, but I still want to marry you.’ The ring, which was simply adorning the necklace Chris had given Vicky without thought, fit perfectly. Vicky kept it as her wedding ring and still wears it now.
