Shocking! Linkin Park Singer, Chester Bennington, Was Sexually Molested A Several Times! Here’s His Journey Right From The Beginning Till The End
All of us are currently grieving the death of the legend Chester Bennington. It came as a shocker and fans all over the world couldn’t cope up with the news of their favorite musician’s death! We know about his death now, let’s learn a thing or two about his life!
Bennington was born in Phoenix, Arizona to a mother who worked as a nurse and a father who was a police detective dealing with child sex abuse cases. His family wasn’t a very rich one. There are very few pictures of Chester as a child!
Just When He Was 11
His parents divorced when he was 11. Eventually, his Dad got his custody. Chester couldn’t deal with his parents separation and started abusing marijuana, alcohol, opium, cocaine, methamphetamine, and LSD from a very young age. Not an ideal childhood you bet!
With His Mom
Exactly 6 years later, when he was 17, he moved in with his Mom. He once mentioned that he was banned from leaving the house when his mother discovered his drug activity. He indeed had a very difficult childhood!
Before The Limelight
Before he earned a name for himself in the world of music, Chester worked with Burger King. He was actually physically bullied in high school. In an interview, he once said: “I, was knocked around like a rag doll at school, for being skinny and looking different.”
In a heart breaking interview he once revealed, “When I was young, getting beaten up and pretty much raped was no fun. No one wants that to happen to you and honestly, I don’t remember when it started. But about four years ago I went to visit my mom and I saw a picture of myself and I remember very clearly when that picture was taken. All of a sudden, because I had kids, I looked at it and thought: ‘Wow, that’s what I looked like.’ And then I remembered. Oh, my God. I remember that being molested at that stage and even thinking about it now makes me want to cry. Oh, my God, that was fucking happening to me and I was just that little, much earlier than I’d remembered. My God, no wonder I became a drug addict. No wonder I just went completely insane for a little while.”
This is terrible. We salute him for the kind of endurance he showed while growing up!
Eventually everything worked fine for him and he became a successful musician. He first began singing with a band called Sean Dowdell and His Friends. They released an eponymous three-track cassette in 1993. He had a long way to cover. Later, he moved on to form a new band, Grey Daze, a post-grunge band from Phoenix, Arizona. Bennington left Grey Daze in 1998 but struggled to find another band. He later worked his way into Linkin Park that changed his life forever!
All in all, he had a difficult life that he had to deal with. We can’t express our grief at this moment. All we can say is RIP mate!
