FEEDER STAR SUICIDE TO 'SPITE WIFE' She'd ruled out move to Wales.
ROCK star Jon Lee hanged himself because his fashion model wife would not move to Wales, it was claimed yesterday.
The Feeder drummer killed himself with his dog's chain to take revenge on 25-year-old cover girl Tatiana Englehart.
Lee was living in Miami, Florida, but police there claim he was anxious to return to his native Newport in Gwent with Tatiana and two-year-old son Cameron.
But she refused saying she would not know anyone.
The star, 33, was found a week ago hanging from the rafters in the garage of his luxury home while his son slept in the house.
A suicide note was found pinned on Lee's shirt and another on the garage door.
Detectives in the United States claim Lee terrorised Brazilian Tatiana with angry outbursts after she told him she wanted to bring up Cameron in Florida.
One officer said: "It seems to have started with a simple case of homesickness. Lee wanted to live in Wales because it is where he was from and because Britain is where he spent much of his time due to his career.
"They were separated for long periods while he was on tour.
"When he came home he'd accuse Tatiana of being unfaithful. We believe he committed this act to get back at her."
His family in south Wales - dad Norman, mum Patricia and brother Andrew - are said to be "heartbroken" by his death.
Andrew has flown to Miama to collect the body for the funeral which will be held in Newport on Friday.The family say Feeder fans are welcome.
