Two years after losing Chester Bennington to suicide, his widow Talinda seems to have found love.
The news was announced on September 6 by Talinda, a mental health activist, who helped launch mental health awareness organisation, 320 Changes Direction, via a sensitively worded Instagram post on her page.
As per reports on People, Talinda says that Chester’s former bandmates, Mike Shinoda, Brad Delson, Dave Farrell, Joe Hahn, and Rob Bourdon, have all welcomed her new fiancé with “open arms”. Using the exciting news as a reminder to her followers that it was okay to move on after losing a spouse, Talinda also made a point to note that moving on with a new man did not mean she would be forgetting about her late husband.
Talinda, who married Chester in 2006, is the mother of their son Tyler and twin daughters Lilly and Lila, has kept her new relationship with Michael F. private. Not much is known about him, tough TMZ reports that he is a Los Angeles County firefighter.
