Chester Bennington's widow thanks James Corden for giving her final say on his Carpool Karaoke episode

The late Linkin Park singer had recorded a segment for the upcoming show

Linkin Park star Chester Bennington recorded a segment for James Corden's upcoming Carpool Karaoke series before his tragic death.

And his widow, Talinda, has thanked the Late Late Show host for giving her the final say over whether or not it will ever be aired.

Chester, who died at the age of 41 last month, was scheduled to appear in an upcoming episode of Carpool Karaoke: The Series.

But James, an executive producer on the show, said the late star's family should decided whether it is aired.

James 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."

Talinda shared a report of James' comments, and tweeted: "Thank you @JKCorden."

The musician was found hanged in his home near Los Angeles and his death was ruled a suicide.

The first episode of Carpool Karaoke: The Series was shown on Apple Music on Wednesday.

It comes after an insider tried to profit off Chester’s tragic death by selling items from the late rockstar’s funeral on eBay - but the auction site was having none of it.

Sources close to the singer have told TMZ that they found items from his funeral on eBay.

They stepped up and helped stop the person trying to sell his memorial items, including a programme, wristband, lanyard and pin from the service on Tuesday, for a profit.

Friends asked for the items to be removed, and eBay agreed, by which point the highest bid had already topped a staggering $50,000.

An eBay spokesperson said the company doesn’t allow the sale of items "that attempt to profit from tragedy".

The bidding site also contacted the seller and will take further action if it happens again.

The same Chester sources believe it was someone who worked with Linkin Park in production that is responsible according to TMZ and when they took a look at the account's history they realized the person had sold other Linkin Park merchandise before.
