Late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington’s ex-wife Samantha posted a new video on Facebook last night following a week where she trashed the singer’s widow Talinda in a long message, accusing her of being ‘evil’ and using his cell phone to call her and Chester’s teenage son Draven. Chester’s Grey Daze bandmate and business partner Sean Dowdell responded by calling Samantha a ‘lying deceitful human’ on Twitter.
Samantha said in her emotional new video, “Hey guys, I wanted to start by saying thank you so much for the birthday wishes. I’m sorry I haven’t read everything, but I really want to share a story with you. This happened to me last night. So I went to take a bubble bath, I was in a very dark place. I mean all this fighting, everything our families are experiencing, my soul can’t take it. I can’t do any of this, I don’t want to do any of this anymore. I had to flip the script.
So as a life coach, or a healer, someone who believes in positivity, let’s just call it that. I just believe in love. So I got in the bubble bath last night, and I just kept saying over and over: love, love, love. But now I’m like hysterically freaking crying, like: love, love. Like hysterically, hysterically crying. I just kept saying love over and over again, and then my loves just became exhaustion. I was in the bath going: love, love, love. I was exhausted, there was nothing left in me. But I kept saying love over and over again, and then the love kept getting lighter. My words, my emotions, my feelings were shifting, and I was becoming love, love, love. It got lighter and lighter. Then I kept saying it more and more, and then I find myself saying love and laughing and giggling and laughing at myself because I’m like, fuck, you’re going through it.
Then I’m cracking up, because my spirit is lifting more and more. Then I got to the point where I was just like, love, love! Now I’m in song. I’m singing love, love, and love! Then I was like, that bath is over, I flipped the script, I pulled myself out of my darkness just by saying the word over and over again, and allowing myself to release, cry a countless amount of tears, not be in the best space, and put myself in the most miraculous space. Now I feel full of love, and I feel better.”
