Anthony Bourdain’s Girlfriend Asia Argento Was Cheating Before His Suicide?

Anthony Bourdain was found dead in his hotel room in France early Friday morning (Jun. 8) after killing himself.

According to reports, his good friend, chef Eric Ripert, was the one who discovered him. The two were in France shooting for Bourdain’s CNN show Parts Unknown. French authorities have confirmed that Bourdain’s method of suicide was by hanging himself with his bathrobe’s belt.

We know when Anthony Bourdain died, we know how he died, and we know where he died. But one question still remains. Why did he choose to end his own life?

Bourdain was in a relationship with Italian actress Asia Argento at the time of his death. The couple started dating in early 2017 and went public with their romance in September 2017 on the red carpet of the annual Creative Arts Emmys in Los Angeles.

Before dating Argento, Bourdain was married twice. His first marriage, to a woman named Nancy Putkoski, lasted 20 years, between 1985 and 2005. He married again a year later to Ottavia Busia, with whom he had his first and only child, a now 11-year-old daughter named Ariane.

Bourdain and Busia divorced in 2016, just one year before they would celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary, due to his extensive work schedule, which required him to travel at least 250 days out of the year. Coincidentally, that’s the same reason his first marriage didn’t work out.

But his last relationship, with Asia Argento, was different. Because she was an actress, she understood the high demands of Hollywood.

Argento reportedly lives in Vigna Clara, which is north of Rome. She and Bourdain both loved to work, which is something they had in common. Bourdain explained to People, “We both work a lot and we’re both away from home a lot so we’re both circus freaks in the same circus—or different circuses I guess. He continued, “I’m a person who likes being busy, I need a project always. I’m not a person, obviously, who’s happy being idle for too long. I like waking up with things to do. I have a restless, creative mind.”

Bourdain said in a separate interview with People, “This woman likes to work. She is strong, independent, creative, and needs to have an obsession, needs to make things … I think we’re both relieved by the fact that we both respect each other’s work. Nobody’s ever going to say, ‘Oh, but you promised we were going to go to the beach.’ No, you get a gig, that’s it. Work first.”

So a long distance relationship worked between Bourdain and Argento. Yet still, the question remains… why did he kill himself if he and Argento were so happy?

TMZ may have the answer to that question. According to the gossip site, the couple “seemed tight as ever just last week,” however, “something changed within the last few days.”

Asia and Anthony were on a shoot together for Bourdain’s Parts Unknown TV show in Hong Kong that reportedly wrapped about a week ago. Anthony posted shared a photo on Instagram of the crew, including Asia, who was sitting right beside him.

The week before that, the couple were together in Florence, Italy, and still appeared to be happy and romantic.

But, according to TMZ, while Anthony was in France shooting his show, Asia was spotted back in Rome “strolling around with a French reporter named Hugo Clément.”

An Italian photographer apparently snapped photos of Argento and Clément “holding hands and hugging,” TMZ reported, however, the photog pulled the pics off the market right after news of Bourdain’s broke.

It wasn’t clear whether Anthony and Asia had broken up, but if they did, they hadn’t yet made a public announcement. Their last public appearance together was back in April at an event in New York City, TMZ noted.

So, now we’re left with the question: Did Anthony Bourdain kill himself because Asia Argento was cheating on him? Since, as far as we know, he didn’t leave a suicide note, we’ll never know why he committed suicide. However, based on interviews he conducted after his divorce from his first wife, Nancy Putkoski, Bourdain didn’t handle breakups well.

After he and Putkoski split, Bourdain said he coped by self-medicating and behaving “in a completely irresponsible and suicide way.” He told Daily Life in a 2012 interview, “I didn’t value my own life and acted accordingly. I had put myself in a very dark place and behaved recklessly in the not-too-subconscious hope that something terrible would happen. I was doing everything possible—smoking pot, drink-driving—to invite that.” He went on to say that “divorce was just the work thing in the world: it was f**king awful.”

“It wasn’t that it was even a contentious divorce, there was no long, litigious battle; it’s just a terrible thing when a relationship that great ends,” he added.

So, it’s highly possible that if Asia was, in fact, cheating on him, or if they had recently broken up, he made the decision to end his own life, considering that those thoughts had passed through his mind before. But who knows what was going through Anthony Bourdain’s mind in his final moments, other than Bourdain himself.

For what it’s worth, Asia posted and deleted a bizarre Instagram story before Bourdain’s death was reported.

About three hours before the news broke of Anthony Bourdain’s apparent suicide, Argento shared a cryptic message to her Instagram story. The story included a photo of herself wearing a ripped t-shirt that read “F**K EVERYONE.” She captioned the post, “You know who you are.”

After deleting the story, she posted a note to Instagram and Twitter calling Bourdain a “brilliant, fearless spirit” who “touched and inspired so many.”

Anthony Bourdain was 61.

Khloe Kardashian Planning to Elope With Tristan Thompson Despite Family’s Disapproval (Report)

Despite the major cheating scandal caused by her baby daddy, Khloe Kardashian is reportedly “desperate” to walk down the aisle and marry Tristan Thompson.

Since giving birth to her first child, daughter True, in April, Khloe has decided to remain in Cleveland with Tristan instead of moving back to Calabasas as her family had advised in light of Tristan’s cheating. A source tells Radar Online that Khloe is not only defying her family’s wishes but also planning a secret wedding.

The source says Khloe is in denial over Tristan’s cheating and the Cavaliers player has a “real grip” on Khloe, which is fueling her desire to marry.

“Even after [the Kardashian’s] intervention to Ohio, she’s defending him and refusing to believe the cheating stories which she insists were exaggerated,” snitched the informant. “He has a real grip over her and it speaks volumes that Khloe’s desperate to get hitched this summer.”

Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner and the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner family are reportedly pissed that Khloe is even still with Tristan and are unlikely to attend any nuptials between the couple. So, you know what that means.

“Ideally she’d like a splashy white wedding but with nobody in her corner it’ll more likely be a straight elopement instead.”

“Kim, Kris, Kourtney and co are adamant they won’t be in the same room as Tristan, let alone a wedding chapel,” Radar’s source added. “They detest this guy with a passion and cannot believe Khloe’s let him walk all over her like this.”

Just days before the couple welcomed their first child together, photos and video footage of Tristan with other women surfaced. One of the videos was allegedly recorded in October 2017, around the same time rumors of Khloe’s pregnancy made the rounds.

Kim recently described Tristan’s behavior as “f**ked up” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. And Khloe’s insistence on standing by her man has caused a rift between the sisters, according to Radar’s source.

“Kim can’t believe Tristan’s still hanging around and that Khloe’s letting him. She’s prepared to ignore Khloe for years if necessary, even if it causes chaos within the family.”

Earlier this week, Khloe posted several cryptic quotes, which many believe were about her current situation with Tristan.

She also responded when someone wrote that sometimes people are “ungrateful” for the kindness you’ve shown them.

Khloe then posted a few quotes on her Instagram stories.

Neither Khloe, Tristan, nor any of the Kardashian-Jenners have commented on speculation that True’s parents are tying the knot any time soon. What we can say is that, for whatever reason, Khloe is giving cheating Tristan a second change and is trying to work things out.

Draymond Green Is Dating Former “Basketball Wives” Star Hazel Renee

Last year, rumors began to circulate that Draymond Green had left his baby mama Jelissa Hardy for reality TV star Hazel Renee. At the time, Green blew the reports off as “fake news,” but now it looks like the rumors were true. Draymond Green and Hazel Renee really are dating, and look to be a very happy couple.

The news was confirmed when Hazel was not only spotted at Game 7 of the Warriors-Rockets series with Draymond’s adorable 17-month-old son Draymond Jr., but also when cameras caught Hazel and Draymond kissing after the Warriors’ win over the Rockets to advance to the 2018 NBA Finals.

Things must be pretty serious between Draymond and Hazel if she’s watching his son while he’s working. And not only that, but Draymond Jr.’s mom, Jelissa Hardy, must be OK with it as well, so it looks like Draymond and Jelissa have a pretty good co-parenting relationship.

And who exactly is Hazel Renee, you ask? Well, in addition to being Draymond Green’s new girlfriend, she’s also a reality TV star who appeared on “Basketball Wives” Season 6 and also briefly appeared on “Real Housewives of Atlanta” as a friend of Kandi Burruss.

On her Instagram profile, Renee describes herself as an actress, recording artist and TV personality.
