Chester Bennington's wife, Talinda, put up a solemn post on social media in celebration of her spouse's 45th posthumous birthday. Talinda wrote that the pain was still felt.

Late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington's wife Talinda Bennington honored his memory in a reflective post on Instagram that carried a message of love and pain.

Talinda celebrated what would have been Chester's 45th birthday, sharing a video of the late star with their son, Tyler. The clip presented a dimly-lit room with Tyler and his late dad.

The pair was having fun doing their father-son dance to PSY's "Gangnam Style" blaring from speakers. Talinda wrote of what would have been if her spouse was alive. She shared:

"Happy Birthday [red heart emojis] you would have been 45 and yes, Tyler would have you doing this dance again!"


Many fans filed to the comment section, pouring out their heartfelt feelings while celebrating Chester's posthumous birthday. They also left good wishes for his family.

Talinda, who has three kids — Tyler and twin girls, Lila and Lily — with Chester, shared her soul-stirring post almost four years after her spouse died by suicide by hanging.

It is also geared toward creating a new approach so that people could easily find help.


Chester was known for his upbeat and award-winning music. Sadly, he was also known for battling addiction and depression. During his lifetime, Chester was quite an open book, sharing his struggles from time to time.

In the months before his death, the Linkin Park star was said to have been in a good place, showing many signs of optimism and willing to experience more progress with his band members.


Many saw Chester in a new light when he performed at his late friend, Chris Cornell's burial. Chester ditched his usual boisterous sound for a solemn one, gently singing "Hallelujah."

The singer was said to have been preparing for a 29-date North American music tour and was on vacation with his family for a while. He had informed them that he had work to do when he left the family vacation.


In retrospect, Linkin Park was preparing for a photoshoot, but Chester did not meet up with them. He ended up going to his Palos Verdes home in Los Angeles County, where authorities found his body.

After his death, Talinda joined forces with concerned citizens and non-profit enthusiasts to form the 320 Changes Direction, a mental health awareness organization.

The franchise's website states that the focus is on changing the culture and attitude toward mental health, mental illness, and wellness as a whole. It is also geared toward creating a new approach so that people could easily find help.
