Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington has committed suicide at the age of 41, according to TMZ.

Bennington, who was found hanged on Thursday morning in Los Angeles, had battled drug and depression issues in the past and had said he had previously considered suicide due to sexual abuse he endured while growing up.

Bennington was very close with Chris Cornell, who hanged himself earlier this year. Today would have been Cornell’s birthday.
