Report: Chester Bennington’s music rights worth over $8 million

ABC/Randy HolmesChester Bennington's music rights are worth over $8 million, TMZ reports.

According to the outlet, the late Linkin Park frontman's widow Talinda has filed documents with the probate court overseeing the musician's estate, in order to appraise his assets. The docs value Chester's combination of music royalties, publishing rights and songwriter performance rights at about $8.14 million.

That figure just accounts for Chester's music, though -- not his other assets.

Chester died by suicide July 2017. He had three children with Talinda, as well as three other kids from previous relationships.
