Chester Bennington‘s widow got hacked just few hours after singer’s suicide. In the tweets, which have since been deleted, someone posting as Talinda Bennington “confessed” that she was cheating on her husband with band member Mike Shinoda.
“I guess this is the time to say it but I have been cheating on Chester with Mike Shinoda….,” the hacker wrote. “I never really loved him and I’m not hacked I just was in love with the money hurts to say,” the hacker said in another tweet.
The last tweet said the account was “not hacked.” “I never really loved him and I’m not hacked I just was in love with the money hurts to say (sic),” the post read.
A representative for LINKIN PARK confirmed Friday to Page Six the security breach is being dealt with following the hack.
Bennington died of an apparent suicide Thursday morning, the Los Angeles County coroner confirmed. He was 41.
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Fire Department said they received a call about 9 a.m. regarding a cardiac arrest in Palos Verdes Estates. Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Bennington was home alone at the time of the suicide. His family was out of town and a housekeeper discovered his body in his bedroom.
Firefighters arrived and cleared the scene by 9:29 a.m. Officers responding did not find a note.
