The widow of late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington has asked fans to stop leaving flowers, letters and other tributes to her husband at the house where he took his life. A steady stream of followers have flocked to the residence in Palos Verdes Estates ever since Bennington took his life last July, leaving flowers and notes close to the driveway of the suburban Los Angeles home.

But on Monday (January 8th), Talinda Bennington retweeted a message from an employee at Linkin Park’s record company, Warner Brothers, reminding fans to leave their items at the record company’s Los Angeles offices and assuring them that their tributes would still be received.

  • She wrote, “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. Our family will receive all of your cards and gifts still. And we deeply appreciate them.”
  • Talinda added in a separate tweet, “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.”
  • Chester committed suicide on July 20th at the age of 41. A private funeral service took place nine days later near his home in Palos Verdes.
  • Linkin Park paid tribute to Bennington last October 27th with an emotional three-hour show that featured numerous guests joining the band onstage at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. The band has yet to announce whether it intends to continue without Bennington.
