Anthony Bourdain dead at 61

So someone snuck in his hotel and killed him, and also the police covered it up? Dude, not everything is a conspiracy. Occam’s razor suggest this is no more than a depressed guy killing himself.

The word now is that a few days before his suicide, Tony found out that Asia Argento was cheating on him, and he was in a very dark mood.

Where’s that from? Reddit?

Could be true, but my money would be on an MRA/incel/I just don’t like women attempt to attack #metoo. OMG! The lying bitch killed Tony!

EDIT: Hate to link to the Daily Mail, but I have to admit it doesn’t look good:

It is going around the Interwebs since Bourdain interviewed a Putin opponent just a month before the guy was gunned down.

Maybe this should be merged with the infidelity and Italians thread.

I knew a brilliant person who struggled for years with inner demons but I think it was infidelity that was the catalyst for ending their own life.

That’s possible. Fuck her and that Hugo guy then (if it’s true).

The “Putin hired people to assassinate him” theory on the other hand is a bit too far-fetched for me. Even if that were to happen, I don’t think the French police would cover it up on their behalf.

This made me smile whether intentional or not. :smiley:

It’s no different to saying one enjoyed Bourdain’s TV programs or books.

Still smiley, though.

A tribute from Anderson Cooper:



Wow are you guys conspiracy theorists.

You/I/we all have 6 degrees of separation from anything that has to do with Putin!!!

The second one is a conspiracy theory.

The first one isn’t. Plenty of people kill themselves over unfaithful lovers. Clearly she was being unfaithful (hugging, holding hands, kissing) if you look at the pics from the Daily Mail article.

“He was my love, my rock, my protector.”

If she’s got any sense she’ll stay off social media for a while. Her feeds must be pretty shocking.

I’m glad Bourdain got his own thread. He deserved one.

Travelling 250 days a year married really to his passion of food…and life as a celebrity chef…life becomes lonely.

In the end you find it hard to accept your choice of lifestyle as it begins to lose its meaning and you lose your connection to your ex wife, your girlfriend , and even your daughter.

And one day you lose your passion for what you are doing with your life and you feel you are alone and there isn’t any reason or anyone to live for not even yourself.

Rest In Peace. Too bad you didn’t cut the travel in half and spend the time with loved ones.

I find it pretty telling about today’s society that after a man committed suicide one of the first reactions from people is that his gf had been cheating on him.

I don’t think she was cheating as such. Allegedly the parameters of their relationship were quite loose. Whether that’s true or not, who knows.

I would like to pull you up over “committed suicide”.

So if a woman committed suicide, the fact that her boyfriend was cheating on her wouldn’t be relevant?


Yeah, where could I have possibly gotten that idea? :roll_eyes:


Careful. Your agenda is showing.

Doubtful. That sounds like some cleaning up by her friends after the fact.

I’m not so sure. It is a strong possibility that they had an open relationship. Of course, it’s a big coincidence that he topped himself 4 days after seeing the pics online.
