On March 20, 2021, the widow of Chester Bennington posted a video on her official page on the social network Instagram. She wished her late husband a happy birthday. On this day, the musician was supposed to be 45 years old.
Talinda posted a video in which Chester was captured with their joint son Tyler. Father and son dance together to the popular song Gangnam Style.
"Happy Birthday. Today you would be 45 and Tyler would make you dance that dance with him again. Life without you has not become easier, and it has not become less painful. We all miss you very much, and today we will celebrate your life. Tyler continues to teach this dance to me and our girls. We will love you forever " - wrote Talinda under the video.
Recall that over the years of marriage, Talinda and Chester had three children: the eldest Tyler is now 13 years old, and the twins Lily and Leela are 7 each.
In the fall of 2020, Talinda regained female happiness and tied the knot with Michael Fredman. The woman gave an interview in which she asked the public not to condemn her decision. She admitted that after a difficult tragedy that happened in her life, she finally feels happy. Moreover, Talinda admitted that she maintains incredibly warm and good relations with the Chester family. All Benningtons supported Talinda's decision to remarry, they blessed her new marriage with a new man.
Note that Chester decided to commit suicide. It happened on July 20, 2017. At that time, the lead singer of the Linkin Park group was only 41 years old.
Last year, Linkin Park celebrated the 20th anniversary of their very first album, Hybrid Theory. In honor of this event, they decided to reissue this album, but now it includes as many as eighty songs. This disc also includes 12 unreleased songs that were written by Chester. Also, the band's musicians honored the memory of their soloist, they released an 80-page book, which contains photographs of Bennington, as well as one large poster.
And we recall that Chester committed suicide on the birthday of his best friend, who also committed suicide. It was rumored that the singer did this as a result of drug intoxication, but the autopsy did not show any prohibited substances in his blood. His wife Talinda claimed that Chester suffered from depression, so he lived on antidepressants for a long time. Previously, the musician was addicted to drugs, but as friends assure, six months before his suicide, Chester did not take illegal drugs. Bennington did not leave a suicide note, the body was found in his personal apartment in Los Angeles.
