The late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington died by suicide at age 41 in July of 2017. Five years have passed since his tragic death and 21st July marked the fifth year. His sister Tobi Bennington took to her Instagram account and posted a picture that saw her with her ‘Chaz.’ She wrote that the ‘truth’ will come out about his death.
“@ChesterBe #thetruthwillcomeout #sisterbrotherbond #notthefaceofdepression In the wee small hours of the morning I learned of your passing. The dawn has never been the same since. Neither have I. Nor has the world. 5 yrs later & the pain is still relentless. Xoxo 💜”
To commemorate the five-year anniversary of his death on Wednesday, the Linkin Park frontman’s widow shared a heartfelt TikTok about the last time she kissed Chester.
“Just sitting here thinking that I can’t believe it’s been 5 years since I last saw you and kissed your sweet face goodbye,” the 45-year-old 320 Changes Direction founder wrote in text displayed over the video, which sees her gazing across a field while wearing a pink shirt and glasses.
Talinda wrote in the post’s caption, “5 years. I didnt think I could breathe this long without you. R.I.P. my love #grief #widow #suicideawarness.”
Following his death, Talinda launched the nonprofit 320 Changes Direction in an effort to “change the culture about mental health, mental illness, and wellness,” according to its website.
Talinda and Chester shared three children together — son Tyler Lee, and twin daughters, Lily and Lila. The Linkin Park singer was also father to three other children from previous relationships, including one adoption.
