According to Realtor.com, the house where LINKIN PARK frontman Chester Bennington took his life is available for rent. The 3,956-square-foot residence is being offered at the price of $8,800 a month.
The five-bedroom, four-bathroom house is in an affluent part of Los Angeles County on the edge of the Palos Verdes Peninsula, surrounded mostly by cliffs and other quiet neighborhoods that are nearly as wealthy. According to Curbed Los Angeles, it has one of the lowest crime rates in the low-crime South Bay and had just five "serious, violent crimes" in 2014, four of which involved acquaintances.
Earlier in the month, Bennington's widow asked fans to stop leaving flowers, letters and other tributes to her husband at the house, which her husband purchased in May 2017 for $2.4 million, according to public records. A steady stream of followers have flocked to the residence in Palos Verdes Estates ever since Bennington took his life last July, leaving flowers and notes close to the driveway of the suburban Los Angeles home.
Talinda Bennington retweeted a message from an employee at LINKIN PARK's record company, Warner Brothers, reminding fans to leave their items at the record company's Los Angeles offices and assuring them that their tributes would still be received.
She wrote in a separate tweet: "We have moved into a new home… and the well-meaning fans that still come to the house, are disturbing our tenants. We (our family & the band) are deciding on the best place for a permanent memorial. It's a big decision and your respect & patience is appreciated. We love you all."
Chester committed suicide by hanging on July 20 at the age of 41. A private funeral service took place nine days later near his home in Palos Verdes.
LINKIN PARK paid tribute to Bennington last October 27 with an emotional three-hour show that featured numerous guests joining the band onstage at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. The band has yet to announce whether it intends to continue without Bennington.
