Chester Bennington’s ex-wife demands money from his estate

The ex-wife of late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington is seeking a sum of cash following his suicide.

Samantha Olit, who was married to Bennington from 1996 to 2005, is requesting money allegedly owed for child support that adds up to about $ 502,000 — plus interest, TMZ reported.

Olit claims the child support is owed for the period between 2012 and 2017. Bennington married Talinda Ann Bentley in 2005 and they were married until he committed suicide in July.

His ex-wife, however, is also requesting a stake in his merchandise income and royalty rights to his music, according to the gossip site.

In his will, Bennington requested all of his children from different women continue to see each other and set up funds to make it possible.

The rocker took his own life at his Palos Verdes Estates, Calif., home on July 20. He was 41.
