Ghost of Vince Neil’s daughter saved his life
Motley Crue frontman revealed that the spirit of his deceased daughter prevented him from committing suicide.
In an interview with TV show Celebrity Ghost Stories, Neil explained that he was consuming pills and alcohol to cope with his daughter Skylar's death, who lost her battle with cancer in 1995 at the age of 4.
“After we buried her I sedated myself on pills and alcohol. I couldn’t take it. For months I really tried to kill myself. I wanted to die. It went on for two years after she passed away – I was in eight or nine rehabs. I felt she was waiting for me, and the only place I wanted to go was to her."
That's when Neil says Skylar's spirit visited him.
“One night I was lying in bed with her blanket, still wanting to die. I was sound asleep – and there was a little tug on the blanket. I woke up, opened my eyes and the door was open.
“I was scared. I didn’t know what was going on – but it was her.”
According to the singer, Skylar came back to spend time with him every day for about two weeks, and the experience turned his life around. He’s since gone on to found the Skylar Neil Foundation, which raises funds and awareness for research into cancer, AIDS and other diseases.
