It was also reported that Talinda was named the executor of Bennington's will. According to the documents, this includes "the power to license, sell and renew copyrights, deal generally with royalty interests as any other property, and the power to incur the costs of preparing for publication any works not published by me at the date of my death."

Bennington had three children with Talinda and a son with his first wife, Samantha Olit. He also had a son with ex-girlfriend Elka Brand and adopted her son from a previous relationship.
