Corey Taylor of Slipknot made a new interview with The Adamantium and talked about his former relationship with his ex-wife, Stephanie Luby.

As giving specific details about why their relationship, Corey Taylor called his late marriage ‘toxic’ and admitted that he had stayed in that relationship about five years too long.

Here is Corey’s statement, transcribed by Alternative Nation:

“Being in a situation where you feel like you are supposed to stick it out even though it is so completely obvious that it’s painful for you, that it’s detrimental to your health, your sanity, your emotional state of being and that slowly but surely you are starting to disappear. Which is what I was finding [happening to] myself. I was in a very toxic relationship that I left about two and a half years ago but I had stayed in that relationship about five years too long.”


“Longer than you should have.”

Corey Taylor:

“Yeah and I had done it for the right reasons – I was trying to make it work and I didn’t realize that it’s just not gonna work. There are just so many things that have to work in a relationship that when they don’t when there is one thing at least you can work on that one thing.

Yet, when there are several that is a glaring red flag that you have to pay attention to. Even in spite of being a proud man, a proud person that one wants to do what is right, sometimes that in itself can be detrimental to yourself because of the way you were raised.”
