The Sun are reporting that late Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington left behind a net worth of $30 million. This comes on the heels of the news yesterday surrounding his will, though the will does not detail exactly how the money will be divided amongst his 6 children with trusts.
The will, seen by TMZ, said: “I request that my children’s mothers or Guardians encourage and allow my children to visit with one another and with my extended family and the extended family of my Spouse on a regular and ongoing basis, so that my children know that they have a large and loving family.”
He instructed the trustee of his family trust to make sure they all get money to cover travel expenses. Talinda is the executor of Chester’s will, but the alternate executor is his former business manager, Jonathan Schwartz. We say former because Schwartz is now doing time in federal prison for wire fraud. He also managed Alanis Morissette, Mariah and Beyonce and was arrested for embezzling millions from his famous clients.
The 41-year-old was laid to rest in a private funeral – a week after his death.
Chester and his widow, Talinda, had three children together, Tyler Lee, 11 and twins Lilly and Lila, 4. The late frontman had Jamie, 21, his eldest, during his relationship with Elka Brand. He had Draven, 15, with ex-wife Samantha.
One week from tonight, the surviving members of Linkin Park will celebrate the life of their friend and bandmate Chester Bennington with an unforgettable night of music at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. The one-night-only show sold out immediately, but now fans will have another chance to experience this historic concert event.
“Linkin Park & Friends Celebrate Life In Honor of Chester Bennington” will stream live free of charge exclusively on YouTube Friday, October 27 at 7:45 p.m. PT at youtube.com/linkinpark.
