You probably recall the shocking suicide death of famed chef and TV personality Anthony Bourdain. The world was just dumbfounded at the news and everyone was searching for answers. Why would this successful chef, who had accomplished so much end his life by hanging? Well, it’s remained a mystery until now. We may have the reason for why Bourdain killed himself that day, and sadly, it’s a common tale – a relationship. that had gone terribly bad.
It’s very sad, but it appears that Anthony Bourdain is a man who was very insecure, jealous, and possessive. And in the end, that’s very likely what ended his life. Radar Online reported that The last correspondence a heartbroken Anthony Bourdain shared with his ex-girlfriend Asia Argento has been revealed. Hours after she allegedly fired off an angry response to the famous TV chef, he took his own life in a French hotel room, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Argento had already broken up with the Parts Unknown star over his alleged “possessiveness” when the fiery text exchange went down in 2018.
Clearly, this was a man who was at his worst. Lost, lonely, and feeling like he had nothing to live for… watching the woman he was obsessed with slip away.
For the first time, fans are getting an inside look at Bourdain’s final hours before he shocked the world and hanged himself.
Argento told Bourdain to “stop busting my balls” when he confronted her about paparazzi photos showing her with a French journalist at a hotel hit the web, according to the unauthorized biography Down and Out in Paradise: The Life of Anthony Bourdain.
According to the report, Bourdain allegedly searched her name online “hundreds” of times after the photos were made public.
Bourdain allegedly sent Argento a text that read, “Is there anything I can do?” She reportedly wrote back, “stop busting my balls,” causing the chef to simply respond with “OK.” Hours later, he committed suicide.
I think he realized at that point, there really was nothing he could do.
The families are not happy about this new book. Argento and Bourdain’s family have fought the shocking allegations made by the book’s author, including that the beloved television host’s final days were riddled with prostitutes, steroid addiction, and “drinking to oblivion.”
“Every single thing he writes about relationships and interactions within our family as kids and as adults he fabricated or got totally wrong,” Bourdain’s brother told the Times. In an email exchange with the journalist, Argento told him, “It is always Judas who writes the biography.”
But the publisher Simon and Schuster is standing by the book.
I can see why the family would be upset. But if true, this at least gives to closure to “why” he ended his life.
Bourdain’s relationship with Argento was rocky, and the two often split only to get back together. Despite their on-again, off-again romance, she broke down in tears when defending herself against those who held her responsible for his suicide.
“He cheated on me too. It wasn’t a problem for us. But I understand that the world needs to find a reason. I would like to find a reason too. I don’t have it,” she said in an interview at the time. “Maybe I would feel some solace in thinking there was something that happened.”
The book also includes text exchanges between Bourdain and his ex-wife, Ottavia Busia-Bourdain, in which he revealed his unhappiness with his life and relationship with Argento.
“I hate my fans, too. I hate being famous. I hate my job. I am lonely and living in constant uncertainty,” he wrote.
He was a man in such a dark and ugly place. And I am sure he had been going to this place for a really long time.
Bourdain found himself addicted to drugs earlier in his life, and while he was able to get treatment for his addiction, he kept his depression tucked away. Unfortunately, ignoring depression is a risky way to manage it. Depression is a wicked disease that tricks people into believing self-fabricated falsehoods. It evaporates their hopes and ambitions and saturates their lives with senseless negativity.
Sadly, if you don’t address an issue, it will come back to haunt you. It’s very sad.
