The daughter of former Coal Chamber bassist Rayna Foss has denied reports that her mother is missing.
This week, several outlets picked up on an article published last September by a New Orleans news station that reported Foss had been missing from the group home where she was living. The article also stated that the New Orleans Police Department was asking for any information regarding Foss’ whereabouts.
In an Instagram post that went up Wednesday, Foss’ daughter Kayla Rose writes that she has “no idea” where the reports of her mother’s disappearance are coming from.
“I spoke to my mother as recently as yesterday, and we have never lost contact,” Rose writes. “My grandparents have also been in contact with my mother, and we all know exactly where she is. I have a message in to the New Orleans Police Department advising them of this and am waiting for them to respond.”
Rose also denies apparent reports of a “feud” between her father, Sevendust drummer Morgan Rose, and the lead singer of Coal Chamber, Dez Fafara.
“My dad and Dez are friends and have been for a long time,” Kayla says.
“I’m confused where all of this started from, but it can stop now,” she concludes. “Hopefully there won’t be a next time, but maybe someone can check before running these stories that end up disrupting my entire family in the future.”
Foss was an original member of Coal Chamber, playing on the now-defunct band’s first three albums before leaving the group in 2002. Coal Chamber’s 1999 album Chamber Music notably included a cover of Peter Gabriel‘s “Shock the Monkey” with guest vocals by Ozzy Osbourne.
