Navarro is taking Geraldo Rivera to task for his new Reelz TV series, “Geraldo Rivera’s Murder in the Family” — specifically, an upcoming episode featuring the 1981 murder of Navarro’s mother by her ex-boyfriend.

In an Instagram post, Jane’s Addiction guitarist criticizes Rivera for moving forward with the episode after Navarro declined to participate.

He also disputes some of the facts posted in an online preview, noting, “I did NOT find a body and I did NOT turn to drugs after this event. I was well in my way to using drugs even before this took place.”

Noting that Navarro already shared his story in the 2015 documentary “Mourning Son,” Rivera tells TV Insider, “He wasn’t particularly keen to have the story told again. Sometimes it is very difficult for someone who has suffered these traumas to open doors that contain so much pain.”
