Chester Bennington, the lead singer of American rock band Linkin Park, has committed suicide, TMZ reports.

According to TMZ, law enforcement sources said the singer hanged himself at a private residence in Palos Verdes Estates in L.A. County.

Bennington’s body was discovered just before 9 a.m. Thursday, July 20th.

Chester was married with 6 children from 2 wives.

The singer struggled with drugs and alcohol for years. He had said in the past that he’d considered committing suicide because he was abused as a child by an older male.

Chester was very close with Chris Cornell, who also committed suicide by hanging in May.

Linkin Park had a lot hits over the years — including “Faint”, “In the End” and “Crawling.”

Bennington was 41.
