Chester Bennington’s widow paid tribute to the Linkin Park singer on his 46th birthday.
alinda, who was married to the musician for 11 years before he took his own life in 2017, shared a message to her Instagram followers remembering him.
She posted a photo of Bennington celebrating a past birthday and holding a gift, writing, “Happy birthday my love! We miss you so much.
“The pain doesn’t go away, but you get used to it, they say. I’m not sure I even believe that.
“You don’t get used to that kind of grief. I’m doing my best to raise our babies the way we used to talk.
“You were my other half and it’s so hard to go without you. I love you and we celebrate you today.”
The couple had three children together – son Tyler Lee and twin daughters Lily and Lila.
Bennington was found dead at his home in Los Angeles on July 20, 2017 at the age of 41. A coroner later ruled that he had taken his own life.
The Grammy Award-winning musician had struggled with depression and substance abuse in the years leading up to his death.
Linkin Park, formed in Los Angeles in 1996, went on hiatus after his death but has now begun working on new music.
Talinda, a former Playboy model, has since turned into a mental health activist and founded the non-profit organization 320 Changes Direction.
She announced in September 2019 that she was engaged, naming her new partner only Michael F. However, US outlets reported that she had filed for divorce after a year of marriage.
