Linkin Park Perform At The 02

I can’t even believe I’m writing this… Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington,41, committed suicide early this morning in his home in the Palos Verdes Estates in LA.   Bennington struggled with substance abuse in the past & was currently battling depression after the death of friend, Chris Cornell.  His death was confirmed by band mate, Mike Shinoda via Twitter,  “Shocked and heartbroken, but it’s true. An official statement will come out as soon as we have one.”  Bennington is survived by his wife and six children. He wed Talinda Ann Bentley in 2005 following his split from Samantha Marie Olit in the same year. Linkin Park is currently on tour.
