Hacker Targets CHESTER BENNINGTON's Widow Hours After Singer's Suicide

Hacker Targets CHESTER BENNINGTON's Widow Hours After Singer's Suicide

A series of vile messages were posted on the Twitter account of Chester Bennington‘s widow after it was hacked Friday morning — just hours after the singer’s shocking suicide.

In the tweets, which have since been deleted, someone posting as Talinda Bennington “confessed” that she was cheating on her husband with band member Mike Shinoda.

“I guess this is the time to say it but I have been cheating on Chester with Mike Shinoda….,” the hacker wrote. “I never really loved him and I’m not hacked I just was in love with the money hurts to say,” the hacker said in another tweet.

The last tweet said the account was “not hacked.” “I never really loved him and I’m not hacked I just was in love with the money hurts to say (sic),” the post read.

A representative for LINKIN PARK confirmed Friday to Page Six the security breach is being dealt with following the hack.

This is not the first time Chester and his wife have had problems with neurotic fans. In 2006, the cell phone, e-mail and PayPal accounts of the couple were hacked by cyber stalkers. Two years later, a woman was jailed for two years for stalking Bennington and Talinda.

Bennington married Talinda in December 2005. They have three children. Talinda is also stepmother to Chester‘s three other kids from previous relationships.

Bennington died of an apparent suicide Thursday morning, the Los Angeles County coroner confirmed. He was 41.

The singer struggled with drugs and alcohol for years. He had said in the past he had considered committing suicide because he had been abused as a child by an older male.

LYNCH MOB Releases Video For New Song 'Main Offender'

LYNCH MOB Releases Video For New Song 'Main Offender'

“Main Offender”, the new video from LYNCH MOB, can be seen below. The song is taken from the band’s upcoming album, “The Brotherhood”, which will be released on Friday, September 8 via Rat Pak Records. Produced by Chris “The Wizard” Collier (FLOTSAM AND JETSAM, PRONG, KXM), the disc features eleven brand new hard rock tracks.

“The Brotherhood” highlights the unique pairing of Oni Logan and George Lynch, and, along with Sean McNabb (bass) and Jimmy D’Anda (drums), the band has created a solid offering from start to finish. From the heavy guitar riffs of the opening track, “Main Offender”, to the melodic album finale, “Miles Away”, LYNCH MOB has once again proven it remains on top of its game.

Logan comments: “After doing quite a few miles together with this latest lineup of Sean McNabb and Jimmy D’Anda, we consider ourselves a pack of wolves, and we came up with the name ‘The Brotherhood’ for the title of the next LYNCH MOB album. It’s got more of an adventurous sound in part and maybe a darker, colder sound to it.

“We are always willing to go farther. We come from the early ’90s and it’s when we released the first LYNCH MOB album which set a sound and course for us. Here we are 27 years later [and] George and I are still able to keep on stretching. As a player, as a writer, that is very important to us. Otherwise, we would be fooling ourselves and fooling you.”

Lynch adds: “We wrote this album as a band and the name of the record reflects what the band is about and what all my bands have been about since I’ve been a kid. This is my second family. These are my brothers. You go through a lot together and have a lot of experiences together. And that then becomes a part of the music.”

“The Brotherhood” track listing:

01. Main Offender
02. Mr. Jekyll And Hyde
03. I’ll Take Miami
04. Last Call Lady
05. Where We Started
06. The Forgotten Maiden’s Pearl
07. Until the Sky Comes Down
08. Black Heart Days
09. Black Mountain
10. Dog Town Mystics
11. Miles Away
12. Until I Get My Gold (bonus track)

MATT SORUM: Please Don't Blame CHESTER BENNINGTON

MATT SORUM: Please Don't Blame CHESTER BENNINGTON

Matt Sorum has paid tribute to Chester Bennington, saying the LINKIN PARK frontman “bared his soul to the world and we received his gift.”

Bennington died of an apparent suicide Thursday morning, the Los Angeles County coroner confirmed. He was 41.

The singer struggled with drugs and alcohol for years. He had said in the past he had considered committing suicide because he had been abused as a child by an older male.

Matt, who played a number of shows with Bennington as part of the Sorum-founded supergroup KINGS OF CHAOS, addressed the singer’s death in a Facebook post. He wrote: “Devastated and heartbroken today on hearing of dear friend and bandmate Chester Bennington‘s passing. We were only speaking yesterday and planning future gigs together.

“I am in shock. He was always upbeat and made everyone around him feel special. Not just fellow musicians but fans as well. Giving himself openly.

“As people that live in the spotlight, this can be daunting and take its toll behind closed doors after the lights go down. As another recovering addict, I related this to Chester on many occasions.

“It’s hard to understand when from the outside our job seems easy and that we have everything. As we know now with the loss of so many greats to drugs, alcohol and the depression that sets in… even in sobriety. The feelings are raw and my brother Chester struggled like so many of my other friends that have lost the battle to the overwhelming fear that comes with this disease. The only thing we can do is try and communicate our feelings through interacting and communicating through self-help groups and loved ones.’

The former GUNS N’ ROSES and THE CULT drummer continued: “Please don’t blame him. The disease wants us dead. Depression and anxiety is the after-effect of years of hard living and running from these demons and feelings.

“I loved Chester… He was kind and always professional in every situation. He would take any challenge. I threw songs at him last minute and he would rise to the occasion. Being the great showman and the voice he had, he was capable of so much. The talent was boundless and he was a perfectionist.

“For us performers, the rest of real life is the hardest part.

“Six kids and a family was his lifeblood and responsibility. People will ask… How could he leave them??

“The pain must have been so deep.

“I pray for his wife and children and that they can find peace through this terrible tragedy.

“He bared his soul to the world and we received his gift. His gift will live on because the music remains.

“I love you, Chester, and will always miss you. The world will miss you… but your presence here will never be forgotten. You touched me as you touched so many… and for that I am eternally grateful.

“Rest now sweet soul. Your brother, Matt.”

Chester‘s body was found at his home in the upscale Palos Verdes neighborhood of Los Angeles Thursday around 9 a.m. TMZ reported that he hanged himself. Police confirmed that they responded to a report about a suicide from a residence in the neighborhood around that time.

Chester is survived by wife Talinda Bennington, their son Tyler and twin daughters Lilly and Lila and his three children from previous relationships.

Devastated and heartbroken today on hearing of dear friend and bandmate Chester Bennington's passing . We were only…
