Linkin Park’s singer Chester Bennington was found dead today in his house in Los Angeles. He killed himself by hanging.
The star was only 41, with 6 children from 2 wives. He suffered from alcohol and drugs abuse in the past few years. Unfortunately, he was already thinking of committing suicide in the past. Bennington was open about his past, he stated in an interview that he was sexually assaulted as a kid by an adult.
‘If I think back to when I was really young, to when I was being molested, to when all these horrible things were going on around me, I shudder,’ he said in one interview.
He committed suicide on the same day of the birthday of his friend Chris Cornell who committed suicide too, back in May.
Linkin Park was supposed to start touring at the end of July following the release of their latest album, One More Light.
