A month after the former Stone Temple Pilots frontman was found dead on his tour bus, Mary, who divorced the singer in 2007, is asking to be named the executor of his will.

According to documents obtained by editors at TMZ.com, Mary recently filed papers in a Los Angeles court making the request, and included a copy of his will, written and signed by Scott in April 2007, seven months before they separated and subsequently divorced.

Scott had around $2 million (£1.3 million) in assets as part of his estate, as well as a trust, according to the legal papers.

Photographer Jamie Wachtel was married to the musician at the time of his death.
