The widow of late Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington said she's still reeling from her husband's death but appreciates his fans' support.

Talinda Bennington said in a statement that she wants "to let my community and the fans worldwide know that we feel your love. We feel your loss as well."

Chester Bennington hanged himself in his home near Los Angeles last week.

"One week ago, I lost my soulmate and my children lost their hero — their Daddy. We had a fairytale life and now it has turned into some sick Shakespearean tragedy. How do I move on? How do I pick up my shattered soul?" Talinda Bennington wrote. "The only answer I know is to raise our babies with every ounce of love I have left."

The couple have six children.

Chappelle dines out in Robbinsdale

Comedian Dave Chappelle may have been busy with five consecutive shows at Minneapolis' Icehouse this week, but he still had time for dinner. On Wednesday, he dined at Travail Kitchen and Amusements, the inventive Robbinsdale restaurant, before his 10 p.m. show. Chef Mike Brown was at Chappelle's comedy set the night before and invited the former "Chappelle's Show" star and entourage to his restaurant, a source told the Star Tribune. The party of five dined in the back bar, which was closed to the public but visible to the rest of the restaurant. Patrons spotted him while walking to the bathroom, which was near his table. On Chappelle's frequent smoke breaks, a couple of customers approached him for a photo, but he declined, telling one, "I'm not taking pictures right now."

Legal action: George Clooney said photo­graphers who captured images of him and his wife, human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, cradling their newborn twins will be "prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law." The pictures published by French magazine Voici were taken at the Clooneys' residence in the Lombardy region of Italy. The magazine claims the photos are the first to be made public of twins Ella and Alexander, who were born June 6. The actor said the photographers "scaled our fence, climbed our tree and illegally took pictures of our infants inside our home."

Joking: "Girls Trip" breakout star Tiffany Haddish said she was just joking when she said she wanted to work with Bill Cosby. Haddish told reporters that she made the remarks during a day of interviews and was trying to be funny while reflecting a fearless approach to her work. She said it was "not the best joke" and clarified: "I don't agree with what he did or anything."
