The home where late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington took his own life is now up for rent.
For $8,800 a month you could lease the property with a morbid past in the upscale Palos Verdes Estates, Los Angeles. The beautiful home boasts 3,956 square feet and was bought by the metal singer in May 2017— just two months before he committed suicide by hanging in one of the rooms. Bennington paid $2.4 million dollars for the property, which he lived in alongside his wife, Talinda and his three children. The house is immaculately decorated, with sprawling gardens and vaulted ceilings. When news of the singer’s untimely death broke, fans swarmed to the house to leave tributes. According to the Daily Mail, earlier this month Talinda took to Twitter to request that fans leave any tributes in memory of her late husband at Warner Bros Records instead of the property.
Please go to Warner Bros Records as a place for memorial for @ChesterBe. We will have a special memorial for his birthday but we are still trying to figure out the details. Thank you for all of your love & support. https://t.co/khEnOJ68w9

She went on to explain that the family has moved and the well-wishers were disrupting tenants in the house. ‘We have moved into a new home…and the well meaning fans that still come to the house, are disturbing our tenants. We (our family & the band) are deciding on the best place for a permanent memorial. It’s a big decision and your respect & patience is appreciated. We love you all,’ she posted on the social media site.
Chester rose to fame as the lead signer of Linkin Park, who broke into the music industry with the release of their debut album Hybrid Theory in 2000. The band enjoyed a successful career that transcended beyond genres, boasting collaborations with the likes of Jay-Z and Stormzy. The 41-year-old singer had seemed in good spirits to family and friends and was preparing to embark on a 29-date North American tour with his band when he was found unresponsive by a housekeeper on 20th July 2017.
The group has yet to confirm its future after the passing of Bennington, but fans remain hopeful this isn’t the end.
