Eddie Van Halen’s Son Blasts ‘US Weekly’ For Publishing ‘Lies’ About Family


Van Halen took exception, however, to a cover story in the entertainment magazine which features his mom Valerie Bertinelli alongside the headline, “Love, Loss & Staying Strong.”

“F— this, and f— you US Weekly,” Van Halen writes. “The only thing printed in this piece of toilet paper that’s true is that we all loved my father. This is not a new interview. My mother did not speak to them for this. That is all.”

The thread continues, “I know what a lot of you are going to say. ‘Just ignore it, bro!’ I’m not going to stand by and let people publish lies and make my family’s tragedy someone else’s entertainment.”

Wolfgang has been a member of the rock band since 2006, when he replaced founding Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony. He contributed to Van Halen’s final studio album, 2012’s A Different Kind of Truth.

In recent days, Wolf has brushed off premature talk of a reunion and retweeted an example of the trolling he’s received since his dad’s passing. “Been off for a while. Apparently not long enough. When stupid rumors make it to me outside of this social media hellhole, I thought it was important enough to clarify that it was bullshit. Sorry for the clarity, everyone. I’m out.”

Eddie Van Halen, the founding Van Halen guitarist and keyboard player, died Oct. 6 at the age of 65. Widely considered one of the greatest electric guitar players of his generation, Van Halen and his bandmates were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 2007, though only Anthony and former singer Sammy Hagar were on hand to accept the honor.

According to several published reports, the Rock Hall will feature the late legend with a special salute during its 2020 induction event.
