Dave Navarro has slammed Geraldo Rivera for discussing the death of his mother in the Murder In The Family series with “inaccurate facts.”
In an Instagram post on Saturday, Navarro wrote: “I find it really disappointing the Geraldo Rivera’s new show would ask me to participate in an episode about the tragedies in my life and when I said no, they decided to run it anyway with inaccurate facts and total abandon for the triggering effect a program of this nature could have on the families.”
“I understand that true crime is a big moneymaker, in fact I am a fan of programs such as this, but when they chase down the dollar instead of having the feelings of the loved ones in mind, that’s when I have to say something,” Navarro added.
“I’m personally ok as I have told this story myself in my documentary #MourningSon but this is an opportunity to stand up for the other families that don’t get a choice whether or not they have their stories told to millions without their consent!”
The Jane’s Addiction guitarist’s mother Constance was murdered by her ex-boyfriend John Riccardi in 1983. In 2015, Navarro released a documentary Mourning Son, which focused on his mother’s murder.
