Chester Bennington revealed he saw a "UFO" just months before his death
Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington revealed he saw a UFO before his death.
The 41-year-old musician made the confession during a conversation with a KIISFM.com presenter, which was filmed and later uploaded to the Fury of Awesomeness blog on YouTube.
Discussing the incident, which he said happened in Arizona, the late chart-topper said: "It's a million per cent true. It's the only time I've seen something and could not put a reasonable, logical explanation together.
"I vividly remember what I saw. I still get the creepy feeling from knowing it wasn't man-made. It was too bizarre."
The clip, which has gone viral in the days since his passing, has racked-up more than 112,000 views.
It has also attracted plenty of mixed responses from fans, who seem to believe different theories about his demise.
One said: "He does not look a guy who wanted to die," while another agreed, adding: "I'm sorry, but he looked like he was very happy...I seriously think something happened."
Others disagreed, with one saying: "I can't wait to see all the new rumors on him that got killed by the Illuminati or the UFO. Just let the man rest in peace."
Another chimed-in: "Please. Stop bringing conspiracies to the death of celebrities. He had depression. He did not die because of any aliens. Please show some respect!".
The video's upload comes just days after the star's body was found at his home, south of Los Angeles, on Thursday morning.
Chester was found dead at 9am in a private residence in Palos Verdes Estates, Los Angeles, which was later confirmed as his family home.
The singer had been quite candid and open about his struggles with both mental health and addiction, having talked freely about both topics.
Just months before his death, in an interview obtained exclusively by Mirror Online, the singer revealed the band's latest album, One More Light, had helped him turn a corner from the "darkest" time in his life.
“One More Light is for us a very personal and very therapeutic kind of record," he said. "We got into a lot of aspects of our lives that we probably wouldn’t have normally shared with anyone and just dealt with it on our own."
He continued: “For me personally when we first started working on this record I was coming out of the darkest time of my life and it was all s**t that I was doing to myself. It was all stuff that I had control over but even though I felt differently at the time."
Speaking candidly about the bleakness he felt, Chester said: "I felt like the world was full of s**t and everybody I knew was full of s**t and life sucks and I was like ‘F***k it.’ All that stuff it was just internal."
