James Corden on airing Chester Bennington’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ episode

James Corden has revealed that Chester Bennington’s family have been given the final choice as to whether the late musician’s Carpool Karaoke episode will air or not.

Before his tragic death last month, the late Linkin Park frontman filmed an episode of the new Carpool Karaoke TV series, which launched last night (August 8) starring Will Smith.

Corden told the Associated press: “We will approach it in whichever manner his family or the people that were involved in that episode, however they would like it to be handled.

“We will navigate it as delicately as possible and just adhere to whatever wishes they would want because I don’t think there’s any other way we could deal with it. It’s a tragedy.”

Bennington committed suicide on July 20. His body was found by the family's housekeeper, hanging in his bedroom inside his home in Palos Verdes Estates in L.A. County. A call to 911 followed shortly after. The 41-year-old had been fighting an ongoing battle with depression.

Linkin Park have since set up a tribute website for him where fans can post messages, videos and photos. The #RIPCHESTER website also features contact information “in case you or someone you know needs support.”
