After the incident that shocked the whole world, we spotted the family members who were most affected by it. The wife of Linkin Park's front man Chester Bennington came outside for the first time after her husband's death. Bennington hanged himself just like his close friend Chris Cornell in his private apartment in Palos Verdes Estate in Los Angeles at around 9 pm.
Talinda Bennington with her six-year-old daughters, Lilly and Lila visited a mall near their home in Los Angeles. Her pet dog followed them. The heart broken 40-year-old Talinda was seen consoling a little girl who is reportedly a family member.

When Talinda needed help the most, she got pathetic trolls targeted at her on Twitter. A hacker sent out at least six tweets from Talinda's account that created a lot of controversies. The tweets were later deleted quickly.
The post claimed some disgusting claims of the relationship between Talinda and her husband Chester, and about Bennington's death.

In truth, Talinda was the one who helped Chester with his demons that he talked about in interviews. Chester credited his wife for supporting him.

Chester, who said he wanted to lay in a corner and die in an interview found a way out of this thought when he met his wife Talinda. In an interview with Bulz-Eye.com in 2009 Chester revealed, after the failed relationship with first wife Samantha Olit, Talinda was the one who taught him how to love again.

"My divorce was one of the worst and best things to ever happen to me in my life. Everything I had worked so hard for was gone after we were through. Everything!
“I was wiped out and it was tough on my ego to let go of all of that. I went from living in a huge house in a tiny apartment in Santa Monica.
“But I eventually learned from it and moved on"
“I then fell in love again and I got help facing my demons… When I met Talinda, I knew she was the one pretty instantly.
“She moved into my place after a week and a half or something like that.”
The couple married a year after Chester and Samantha's divorce finalized. Chester left behind three children from him and Talinda - Tyler Lee, 11, and six-year-old twins Lila and Lilly, and other three children from his previous relationships.
