Talinda Bennington, wife of late Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington, released her first statement today. Chester committed suicide on July 20th at his home in LA. Her post reads in part: “We had a fairytale life and now it has turned into some sick Shakespearean tragedy. How do I pick up my shattered soul? The only answer I know is to raise our babies with every ounce of love I have left. May God Bless us all and help us turn to one another when we are in pain. Chester would’ve wanted us to do so.”
