Anthony Bourdain’s ex-wife shares photo of ‘strong and brave’ daughter


"She was awesome. So strong and courageous", Busia-Bourdain wrote. "She wore the boots you bought her", the Italian TV celebrity and MME fighter wrote, addressing Bourdain. "He gave me hope for what one's life can become, can be at 61".

Meanwhile, tears streamed down the face of Argento's fellow prominent member of the #MeToo movement, Rose McGowan, as she opened up about the shocking suicide.

After news of Bourdain's death broke on Friday, Argento released a statement on Twitter.

The world was left in a state of shock when Anthony was found dead in his hotel room in France on Friday, June 8, during a day off from filming Parts Unknown. "She's like me, in a lot of ways". She expresses understanding that Bourdain's passing hurts for fans who saw him as a friend, but that in mourning his loss, it's important not to blame anyone.

She had previously told the New York Post that her son's body was being held up in France due to red tape, and that Busia was handling everything at this time.

The couple met in 2016 and began dating a year later, and a friend of Argento told People that Bourdain "was madly in love with Asia" before his death.

It's a common thread among people who interacted with Bourdain: He took an unusual level of interest in the success of people he wanted to see succeed, and he was also frequently touched in his interactions with ordinary people.

Bourdain and Busia-Bourdain married in 2007.

He was interviewed for the story while shooting the now-famous episode of his CNN series Parts Unknown in Hanoi, Vietnam with President Barack Obama. Throughout it all, Bourdain was enthusiastic, but he let Garcia talk about the food, and what makes a good mole poblano. "We have no indication that he was consuming alcohol the days before his death or changed his behavior".

He went on to write, jokingly: 'She's an interesting woman. "I'm sure she's as broken up as I am". She turned into Jean-Claude Van Damme'. After Mario Batali was accused of sexual assault, Bourdain published an essay in Medium in which he wrote that "one must pick a side".

Funeral plans are now on hold as Bourdain's body remains in France due to bureaucratic red tape.

Anthony Bourdain's divorce from the mother of his child was never finalized - though he ruled out ever marrying girlfriend Asia Argento, according to a report.

Before welcoming his daughter, he noted that he was "frankly, asking for trouble".
