Was Asa Friends with Chester Bennington?

When Asa Soltan Rahmati gathered her family and friends to celebrate her latest creative project, a moment which was captured on Sunday's Shahs of Sunset, she kept the guest list open to those she loved most. Among the folks who stepped out to support Asa, were her Shahs buddies, of course, as well as Paris Jackson and the late Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington. Paris Jackson's appearance is hardly shocking as Asa has long been in a relationship with Jermaine Jackson Jr. But, viewers might be wondering how Asa and Bennington became acquainted.
