Chester Bennington’s Widow Reveals Touching Reason He Filmed Her Sleeping


Kerrang have out a new issue paying tribute to late Linkin Park and Stone Temple Pilots singer Chester Bennington featuring an interview with his family. Talinda Bennington told a touching story about Chester filming himself saying ‘I love you’ as she slept, so he could rewatch footage while he was away from her.

“I’m going to get really personal here.”

“He would stare at me when I was asleep and tell me how much he loved me. I would wake up to him recording this on camera – he would watch the videos while he was away and missing me – and I would start laughing so hard, out of slight embarrassment, but mostly because it was so romantically corny.”

“He was so special to me because he was my soul mate. We knew each other inside and out and could oftentimes communicate without words. He was so special to me because he was a present and loving father to our babies and the most romantic and loving husband a woman could ever dream of. Where did that come from? God. He was my heart and soul.”

“I loved him from the moment I laid eyes on him.”
