Bourdain died on June 8 in France, where he was discovered by a hotel receptionist and his close friend Eric Ripert. He hung himself using the belt of a bathrobe in his hotel room while traveling to film Parts Unknown.
He was survived by his girlfriend Asia Argento, his ex-wife Ottavia Busia and his 11-year-old daughter Ariane Bourdain. His daughter will inherit much of his wealthy estate, much of which has been suspected to still be concealed.
His biography will be published in the fall of 2019, to be edited by Laurie Woolever, Bourdain’s assistant.
