UPDATE 12/5/17 @ 9:25PM: Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda has released a statement claiming Chester Bennington did not have ecstasy in his system at the time of his death. It was earlier reported by TMZ that Bennington did have the substance in his system. This is apparently not true. You can read Shinoda’s statement below.
Just clearing this up: TMZ erroneously printed CB had MDMA in his system when he passed. That was incorrect, they misread the report. They have since corrected their piece, see below. I hope other publications have the decency to do the same. pic.twitter.com/MwglKqjsOc
