Opened the thread expecting his drinking and smoking to have finally caught up to him. Would not have expected suicide.

Midlife crisis had him banging a younger chick, and then she left him right? I'm guessing that lead to this. Still, fucking shocking. Did not expect this one. Even if his personal life was shit, dude gets paid to go eat and drink all day and visit exotic places--hard to imagine feeling blue enough with a life like that to end it, especially if you've got an 11 year old little girl.

Terrible, dude must have had some major demons.

Yah. I'd just pick up another younger chick. Isn't like it'd be hard for him. People are weird.

Has to be something else, like found out he was going to die and decided to on his own terms. He was in France filming another buddy episode with Eric Ripert who apparently found him, so it’s not like he wasn’t around friends and family at the time. Ex New York chef and hard drug user, so he had some demons for sure but really seemed like he coped with them. Always liked him and the stories he tried to tell about people in some really shitty parts of the world, this is sad.

It could still be drugs as well. People who abuse benzos, especially in combination with opiates, kill themselves all the time. Chris Cornell is a notable example, and somebody like Bourdain could get a doctor to prescribe anything he wanted.

Absolutely insane. He had an 11 year old daughter (first wife) as well. His long time friend Eric Ripert found him in his hotel room, death by hanging, while they were filming an episode of Parts Unknown.

RIP a truly amazing guy, sad to hear he felt like death was better than going on

Did he have any connection with the Clintons?

But yea, this was a huge surprise, didn't care for his politics, but he was great at what he did.

OMG FOH

Recently the incel thread talked of the incel forum taunting someone to "rope" and "do it fag"

did we blow this case open?

- where was it reported Bourdain hung himself, the first CNN article just said, "found unresponsive"
