Chester Charles Bennington was an American singer and songwriter who is most known for his role as the lead singer of the rock band, Linkin Park. He was found dead at 41 years old in his Palos Verdes Estates home on July 20, 2017. Chester Bennington’s ex-wife, Samantha Bennington, was not pleased with how the late rock star was treated at his funeral.
Samantha, on a Facebook post, wrote: ‘I’m so disgusted on so many levels! There were many friends & family that should have been there but when you turn a funeral into reducing someone’s life into only 12 years that’s what you get!’
Samantha said that the private service that performed the funeral failed to mention any other part of Chester’s life apart from his time in front of the public eye, especially his time with his family. She claimed that they neglected Chester’s family life and that she was not given a chance to speak at his funeral. Things were further complicated when she said that there was only one photo of her and Chester’s son, Draven.
She then called the service itself ‘like a cheap happy hour menu.’ Samantha then accused Chester’s widow, Talinda, of ‘capitalizing on his death’ and that ‘the truth’ would eventually come out. She said that Talinda never treated her son, Draven, ‘equally’ and that they ‘do not have a place to go or even any of his ashes!’
