So heartbreaking. Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington was memorialized in a funeral ceremony last month before he was cremated, and now his ex-wives seem to be feuding with each other after his death. His ex-wife Samantha Bennington slammed his widow Talinda Bennington and she opened up about the "disgusting" way Talinda treated her and her son during the funeral.
"My son [and] 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 in a lengthy Facebook post. She explained that Talinda did not honor her 15-year-old son Draven's wish of allowing him to share a prayer for his father with his siblings and she also excluded Draven and Samantha from the family gathering that took place after the funeral.
Samantha accused Talinda of only reflecting the past 12 years of Chester's life in his funeral service and she also said that some very important people did not attend the ceremony, like Chester's father and his siblings. "I'm so disgusted on so many levels!" she wrote. "His parents were not mentioned in the program, his siblings were not mentioned, the mothers of his children were not mentioned, even his own children were not listed on the program! There should have been photos of all of us together with our kids."
"We haven't had the opportunity to honor his dad properly for his lifetime, [and] the lack of respect [and] honesty is just disgusting!" she continued, and she even accused Talinda of "capitalizing" on Chester's death.
She also explained that the rumors of her keeping Draven from seeing his siblings — Chester and Talinda share three children together — are simply not true. "[Draven] was never treated equally by [Talinda] [and] never wanted to go there because of that," she wrote. "Now he doesn't want to go into the home where his father's suicide took place."
