Chester Bennington's Ex-Wife Slams His Funeral

August 24, 2017

Samantha Bennington, the ex-wife of late Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington took to Facebook to voice her disgust with the events that took place during the singer's funeral.

According to Samantha, the private service only celebrated the period of Chester's life when he became famous, ignoring other aspects of his life, including his relationship with her and their son, Draven. "My son & I have not had an opportunity to speak not even at his funeral (that only represented his life that he was married to his new wife) no photos but one of him anywhere," she wrote.

Samantha also noted that even direct family members like Bennington's parents were left out of the ceremony. She also believes that Chester's recent wife, Talinda, purposefully left her and her son out of certain events like the "after bowling celebration," and for not treating Draven fairly like the rest of his siblings. "We haven't had the opportunity to honor his dad properly for his lifetime, & the lack of respect & honesty is just disgusting! We do not have a place to go or even any of his ashes!"

"I hope you like capitalizing on his death... karma is real."
