Chester Bennington’s Ex-Wife Reveals Why She Was ‘Disgusted’ by His Funeral
Chester Bennington's ex-wife Samantha is expressing her “disgust" over his funeral!
Last month, Bennington was laid to rest after taking his own life. TMZ reported that approximately 200 mourners attended the service, which was held at South Coast Botanic Garden.
On Wednesday, Samantha took to Facebook, writing, "My son & I have not had an opportunity to speak not even at his funeral."
“It was a disgusting delusional display on all people who spoke at the funeral & their characters. Never mentioning a man who grew up from a little boy and loved many things, becoming a rock star was just one thing!” she went on. "We're were photos of him,? why did the program look like a cheap happy hour menu?! I'm so disgusted on so many levels! Their were many friends & family that should have been there but when you turn a funeral into reducing someone's life into only 12 years that's what you get!"
Samantha criticized the funeral program, which she claimed didn't mention his parents, siblings, children or herself. She explained, "There should have been photos of all of us together with our kids & separate. I'm so glad I have all the paper work to back up every judgement etc.”
Chester and Samantha were married for nine years, divorcing in 2005. They share one son, Draven. He moved on from the relationship with Talinda, his widow, who is the mother of his three children.
In her Facebook post, Samantha also appeared to call out Talinda, saying, "Dra was never treated equally by T & never wanted to go there because of that."
