Vinnie Paul Abbott‘s longtime girlfriend has thanked her social-media followers for their support, two days after the former PANTERA drummer died at his home in Las Vegas. He was 54 years old.
Chelsey Yeager took to her Instagram earlier today (Sunday, June 24) to share a photo of her kissing Vinnie Paul in a car, along with the following message: “I want to thank each & every one of you guys for sending your love! Please please give me & all of our family/friends time. I can’t begin to describe the pain in my heart from this nightmare… I have absolutely no other words.”
Yeager and Vinnie Paul had reportedly been a couple for at least five years prior to the drummer’s tragic death. They lived in Las Vegas.
