TMZ reported Bennington's body was discovered before 9 a.m. Thursday at his home in Palos Verdes Estates. The singer shared three children with his wife, Talinda Bentley, and three others with previous partners.
"RIP to Chester Bennington and my sincerest condolences to his family, friends, and the Linkin Park family. Truly unique, humble frontman," Timberlake tweeted.
