But she has broken her silence, sharing a photo of the couple's 11-year-old daughter, Ariane, wearing black studded boots and holding a microphone as part of her performance at the NYC music venue DROM.

In a lengthy letter received by ABC News, McGowan implored her "fellow humans" not to lash out at Argento for Bourdain's suicide.

He had been in Kaysersberg, France shooting an episode of his popular CNN series Parts Unknown at the time, and French authorities have said that the death was a suicide. His cause of death was revealed to be suicide by hanging.

The School of Rock's NY program put on two performances over the weekend, and Ariane apparently took part in the show. Even after the couple split, the family remained exceptionally close, with Bourdain often posting pictures of him with Ottavia and Ariane, though he often hid his daughter's face in an effort to protect her from the spotlight he occupied so effortlessly. "So strong and fearless".

"The world would not be better off without you", she said in a now-deleted video posted to social media. "I would ask that you respect their privacy and mine".

"Although they're separated, she'll be in charge of whatever happens", said the 83-year-old. Kate Spade was found dead in her NY apartment on Tuesday, June 5.

Famed American chef and author Anthony Bourdain is dead after taking his own life.

The restaurant, which permanently closed about a year ago, served as the setting for numerous stories Bourdain shared in his first book, Kitchen Confidential. You know, I put a tiny, tiny little bit of nutmeg in my macaroni and cheese and she did not enjoy that. Obama tweeted Friday. "He taught us about food - but more importantly, about its ability to bring us together".

"1956-2018. Rest in Peace Mr. Bourdain", another note read.

McGowan then added the suicide and crisis hotline numbers for numerous countries.

As Radar reported, Bourdaindied at age 61, when he used the belt of a bathrobe to hang himself in his room at Le Chambard hotel in Kayserserberg, France. Gladys spoke fondly of her son's writing ventures to Today, noting that he had an "incredible vocabulary" and his second grade teacher wanted to move him to a private school because he had surpassed so many of his peers in reading. Anthony's internal war was his war, but now she's been left on the battlefield to take the bullets.
