Linkin Park bandmate Mike Shinoda has confirmed his death on Twitter, writing: “Shocked and heartbroken, but it’s true. An official statement will come out as soon as we have one.”

“Artists are ppl compelled to bring beauty into a world that can be so dark. makes sense then that artists are always conscious of darkness,” Hayley Williams added on Twitter. “… & maybe at times made more vulnerable by it? i don’t know. life can be relentless. heart hurts for Chester’s family/band/friends/fans.”

Chance the Rapper also took to social media, writing: “RIP Chester. Tragic ending. Condolences his family and friends and Linkin Park ??.”

Rihanna took to Instagram to praise the late singer. “???????????????????????????????????? Literally the most impressive talent I’ve ever seen live!” She captioned a photo of Bennington performing. “Vocal beast! #RIPChester #LinkinPark.”

Bennington was close friends with late singer Chris Cornell. His death was ruled a suicide by hanging in May. Bennington was found dead on what would have been Cornell’s 53rd birthday.

“I don’t need help. What I need is for people to understand that I’m human and I make mistakes just like every other human in this world, but I would never risk my life or my girlfriend’s life,” the “Fool’s Gold” singer stated. “I do not drink. Hire a polygraph person, a professional. Strap me up.”
