Yesterday news broke that chef and TV personality Anthony Burdain died - he appears to have commit suicide by hanging in France. And new details surrounding his death are coming out.
A new report out of the UK is suggesting that Anthony may have killed himself after getting dumped by his MUCH younger GF.
The younger girlfriend had just been spotted in another country with a “male companion”. She and Anthony dated for about two years. In fact, Anthony even let his girlfriend help in directing this latest episode of his CNN television series Parts Unknown.
The new season of Parts Unknown just aired this week - and in the latest episode, his GF is right there by Anthony’s side.
CNN's obituary read that:
Bourdain was a larger-than-life figure -- a gifted chef and storyteller who used his books and shows to explore culture, cuisine and the human condition.
"Tony was a symphony," his friend and fellow chef Andrew Zimmern said Friday.
The news of Bourdain's death was met by profound sadness within CNN, where "Parts Unknown" has aired for the past five years. In an email to employees, the network's president, Jeff Zucker, remembered him as an "exceptional talent.""Tony will be greatly missed not only for his work but also for the passion with which he did it," Zucker wrote.
CNN said Bourdain was in France working on an upcoming episode of his award-winning CNN series, "Parts Unknown." His close friend Eric Ripert, the French chef, found Bourdain unresponsive in his hotel room Friday morning. He was 61 and took his own life.
