Michelle Rounds Suicide Attempt
Rounds was rushed to a New York hospital Tuesday night after she was found in a hotel not far from her home in Nyack, N.Y., reports RadarOnline. An unidentified person had tipped off police out of concern for Rounds, leading officers from Clarkstown PD to the Nanuet, N.Y. DoubleTree. There, they were forced to break down the door in order to get into Rounds’ room.
“She had apparently taken some pills and drank wine,” an insider told Radar. “It looked to be a suicide attempt ”
Rounds was subsequently taken to Nyack Hospital. As of Wednesday afternoon, Rounds remains hospitalized. Her current health status is not yet known.
“Michelle was very depressed lately over the divorce and custody battle with Rosie,” the insider, who believes the attempt could have been a “cry for help” said. “In fact, in the past few days her and Rosie spoke and they had a bitter argument.”
O’Donnell and Rounds split up after two years of marriage back in February. Their separation has been acrimonious, with an intense custody battle over their adopted 2-year-old daughter Dakota.
O’Donnell has since started dating Tatum O’Neal. The two were spotted vacationing in Florida last week, and are said to be planning on moving in together at O’Donnell’s Nyack estate.
“They’ve been seeing each other for about three months,” a source told People. “They have known each other for many years but this has turned into more than a friendship.”
