Scott Weiland left behind music and sports memorabilia worth thousands after his death.

According to legal documents filed by The Stone Temple Pilots frontman's ex-wife Mary Forsberg, the singer - who died of an accidental drug overdose in December 2015 aged 48 - had 20 framed albums, and also possessed used studio equipment worth an estimated $72,500.

In the docs, obtained by The Blast, Mary lists Scott's personal effects as being worth nearly $98,000 and it states his interest as a band member of the Stone Temple Pilots was valued at more than $446,000.

The total sum of the items, which include a $900 Boogie cabinet, and a $275 signed Joe Montana jersey, is listed at $559,349.83.

A host of the 'Interstate Love Song' hitmaker's accolades are also listed, but it states their value is zero because they are property of the issuing agency.

These include a Grammy Award from 1994 for Best Hard Rock Performance with a Vocal for 'Plush', a 1994 American Music Award for Best Pop/Rock New Artist, and a Billboard Music Award from the same year for Top Modern Rock Act of the Year.

Mary - who has two kids, Noah, 17, and Lucy, 15, from her marriage to Scott - branded him ''paranoid'' after his death and encouraged his fans to take their kids out rather than spend the money on purchasing a T-shirt in tribute to his life.

In an open letter, Mary - who was married to the star for seven years - wrote: ''We don't want to downplay Scott's amazing talent, presence or his ability to light up any stage with brilliant electricity.

''But at some point, someone needs to step up and point out that yes, this will happen again - because as a society we almost encourage it ...

''Many of these artists have children. Children with tears in their eyes, experiencing panic because their cries go unheard ... [He] was a paranoid man who couldn't remember his own lyrics and who was only photographed with his children a handful of times in 15 years of fatherhood.

''Noah and Lucy never sought perfection from their dad. They just kept hoping for a little effort. If you're a parent not giving your best effort, all anyone asks is that you try just a little harder and don't give up. Progress, not perfection, is what your children are praying for.

''Our hope for Scott has died, but there is still hope for others ... Skip the depressing T-shirt with 1967-2015 on it - use the money to take a kid to a ballgame or out for ice cream. (sic)''
