As the world continues to mourn the loss of Anthony Bourdain, his grieving loved ones are speaking out on his tragic loss.
Anthony’s mother Gladys, a former editor at the New York Times, shared her heartbreaking sentiments to the publication:
“He is absolutely the last person in the world I would have ever dreamed would do something like this.
Tony had been in a dark mood these past couple of days…He had everything. Success beyond his wildest dreams. Money beyond his wildest dreams.”
His girlfriend, Asia Argento, released a statement via social media on the day of his passing:
“Anthony gave all of himself in everything that he did. His brilliant, fearless spirit touched and inspired so many, and his generosity knew no bounds. I am beyond devastated. My thoughts are with his family. I would ask that you respect their privacy and mine.”
The 42-year-old actress and Anthony had been together since 2016.
He was found dead at the age of 61 on Friday morning (June 8).
Our thoughts continue to be with Anthony’s loved ones during this difficult time.
