Anthony Bourdain, the chef who became a world-traveling storyteller, has died at age 61, according to CNN.

The famed cook, writer and host of the CNN series died Friday, June 9 as a result of suicide, in a luxury hotel in the ancient village of Kaysersberg, in France's eastern Alsace region.

CNN said Bourdain was in Strasbourg filming an upcoming segment in his series "Parts Unknown".

Bourdain's ex-wife, Ottavia Busia, shared a photo on Instagram of their child, Ariane, appearing on stage at a music venue in NY.

Funeral arrangements are in the hands of Bourdain's ex-wife, Ottavia Busia, as she is legally next of kin.

"Many of these people who lost their "friend" are wanting to lash out and blame", she wrote. "You do something and the Pope tells you that it's good, it nearly brings you to tears", Trejo said, adding that Bourdain "made me feel good that I was in the restaurant business".

Rose McGowan spoke out in an impassioned open letter on Monday on behalf of Anthony Bourdain's girlfriend, Italian actress and activist Asia Argento, urging people affected by his suicide to not place blame on those left behind.

Eric reportedly knew something was up when his friend and colleague, who had previously battled drug addiction and depression, didn't show up for breakfast.

In an interview with The New York Times following news of Bourdain's death, his mother, Gladys Bourdain, said she had no idea her son may have been contemplating ending his life.

Defender Jose Maria Gimenez said the Egypt game was the "most important" as it would set the tone for the rest of the tournament. The workout of the 25-year-old striker included exercises with fit ball and rubber bands, as well as other activities.

Netflix's license for Parts Unknown is up in June 2018, meaning Bourdain's work will no longer be available for streaming on your TV or device.

"Although they're separated, she'll be in charge of whatever happens", said the 83-year-old.

"Anthony gave all of himself in everything that he did", she wrote.

"It is the whole family of French gastronomy that joins me, to renew our deep friendship to our bereaved American brothers", he added.

Bourdain was considered one of the most influential chefs in the world by many commentators, due to his gift of storytelling.

McGowan reportedly emailed the statement to editors at multiple news outlets, and The Hollywood Reporter published the statement, which McGowan says was written while she was sitting with Argento, in full. "I have changed. My husband half-jokes that he married Sophia Loren but ended up with Jean-Claude Van Damme", the 49-year-old wrote in the article.

Many fans devastated by Anthony Bourdain's suicide are turning to reruns of his show to deal with their loss. "Like, he was insane in love with her, insane being the keyword".
