Chester Bennington’s Wife Shares Family Photo From Days Before His Death

The widow of late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington has shared a family photo which was taken just days before his death in July at the age of 41.

Talinda Bennington, who had three children with Chester, took to Twitter to share the photo, saying, “This was days before my husband took his own life. Suicidal thoughts were there, but you’d never know.”

She also added the hashtag #fuckdepression.

Responding to fans’ comments on the post, Talinda called for them to help others:

Linkin Park have also shared a new tribute video today, showcasing the various memorials which were held for Chester around the world. Watch the clip below.

Chester Bennington was laid to rest at a private funeral in July, after which his ex-wife Samantha Bennington released a statement criticising the service as “disgusting”.

In a statement released prior to Chester’s funeral, Talinda Bennington said that she had lost her “soulmate” and her children had lost “their hero”.

“We had a fairytale life and now it has turned into some sick Shakespearean tragedy,” she said.
