More Alice Coopers news
Recently, Cooper clarified some statements he made about him and his wife having a rumored “death pact.”
Cooper and his wife Sheryl Goddard made headlines in the UK when The Mirror quoted him saying he and his wife were going to “go together” when one of them dies because there’s “no way of surviving without each other.”
Cooper spoke to USA Today about the alleged statements, clarifying what he mean.
“We have a life pact. We love life so much,” he said.
“What I was meaning was that because we’re almost always together, at home and on the road, that if something did happen to either of us, we’d most likely be together at the time,” Cooper said. “But neither of us has a suicide pact. We have a life pact.”
The couple has been together since she began attending his shows in 1975.
