Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington has committed suicide at age 41. TMZ first reported that Bennington hanged himself at his Palos Verdes residence on Thursday, July 20, after which the L.A. County coroner confirmed to Associated Press that Bennington had died. Linkin Park bandmate Mike Shinoda tweeted "shocked and heartbroken, but it's true. An official statement will come out as soon as we have one."

 

Bennington struggled with drug and alcohol addictions at various times during his life. He spoke openly about both, as well as about being molested by an older man when he was a child. Bennington was married and is survived by six children. 

 

The band's most recent album, One More Light, topped the Billboard 200 earlier this year.

 

Linkin Park's massively popular 2000 debut, Hybrid Theory, introduced the world to their immaculately produced hybrid of alt-rock, metal and rap. Its follow-up, 2003's Meteora, became the first of the band's six chart-topping albums. Over the course of seven studio albums and a collaborative EP with JAY-Z, Linkin Park established itself as one of the biggest and most influential rock bands of the 21st century. The band has sold 27.8 million albums in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music.

 

Their biggest Billboard Hot 100 hit, "In the End" from Hybrid Theory, peaked at No. 2 in 2002. "Numb" from Meteora hit No. 11 in 2004, "What I've Done" reached No. 7 in 2007, "New Divide" peaked at No. 6 in 2009 and "Shadow of the Day" earned a No. 15 spot in 2008. 

 

In addition to Linkin Park, Bennington formed Dead by Sunrise in 2005, who released one album, Out of Ashes, in 2009. Bennington teamed up with Stone Temple Pilots after Scott Weiland's departure for one EP, High Rise, in 2013.

Who Is Mike Shinoda? Chester Bennington's Wife Talinda Bentley Confesses To Cheating In Possible Twitter Hack

 

Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington's wife Talinda Ann Bentley took to Twitter once again early Friday, moments after deleting her tweets in which she confessed to cheating on her husband with bandmate Mike Shinoda.

In the latest tweet, Talinda said she “encouraged him to kill himself I told him no one cared.”

 

It is unclear whether Bentley's messages were an emotional outburst or if her Twitter account was hacked.

 

Original Story:

 

In a shocking turn events in the apparent suicide of Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington, his wife Talinda Ann Bentley confessed on Twitter that she was cheating on her husband with band member Mike Shinoda. 

 

"I guess this is the time to say it but I have been cheating on Chester with Mike Shinoda....," Talinda wrote. "I never really loved him and I'm not hacked I just was in love with the money hurts to say," she said in another tweet. However, the tweets were immediately taken down.

 

Bennington's wife not only revealed that she was cheating on her 41-year-old husband but also fuelled rumors about his untimely death. “He didn’t kill himself, he was already did [sic] before he hung himself, I have proof..,” she wrote.

Bennington hanged himself at a private residence in Palos Verdes Estates, California, where his body was found. He is survived by his six children, Jaime, with former girlfriend Elka Brand, adopted son Isaiah, son Draven with first wife Samantha Marie Olit, and children Tyler Lee and twins Lily and Lila with his second wife, Talinda.

 

Mike Shinoda, an original founder of the band in 1996, is married to author Anna Hillinger since 2003 and the couple have two children together. The 40-year-old had earlier paid tribute to the late singer, saying he was "shocked and heartbroken" by Bennington's death.

 

Shinoda produced and co-wrote much of Linkin Park’s music and was also part of the band's latest album, “One More Light,” which was released May 19. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.

 

Shinoda has not yet responded to Talinda's tweets or about the alleged cheating.

 

Talinda's now-deleted tweets early Friday were the first time she spoke out following the death of her husband, who had been fighting drug and alcohol abuse. While the tweets did raise some eyebrows, it is unclear if there was any conspiracy behind his death.

 

Bennington got involved with drugs before he was a teenager. “I started using drugs when I was 11,” he had said previously. “I definitely wasn’t making records at that time. I was exposed to it really young and there were a lot of things that happened to me as a young person that were really difficult for me to deal with. I found myself alone a lot.”

Fake news! Bogus article claiming Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington's death is being investigated as a murder goes viral

An unsubstantiated online article claiming that Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington's death is being investigated by police as a possible murder has been shared nearly 800,000 times.

 

The article, posted on yournewswire.com on Friday, claimed an anonymous source with the Los Angeles Police Department said authorities were investigating the matter as a possible homicide. 

 

'Detectives are looking into whether Chester Bennington was murdered, with the death scene later arranged to resemble a suicide,' the debunked article reads. 

 

'They have put a team of investigators in place and are refusing to rule out a criminal homicide charge,' it adds.  

The article also uses a fake quote from a 'police source' stating: 'Murders are sometimes made to look like suicides... We think he was murdered, we just have to find out who was behind it.'
