Anthony Bourdain's Ex Posts Photo Of Their 11-Year-Old Daughter's Performance

Asia Argento has broken her silence in the wake of her celebrity chef boyfriend Anthony Bourdain's suicide.

The acclaimed chef and TV host was found dead early Friday in a France hotel room. They have an 11-year-old daughter together, Ariane Bourdain.

Julien Schroeder, the owner and chef of La Petite Venise, said Friday that he served the typical regional meal to Bourdain and Eric Ripert, co-owner of New York's famed Le Bernardin, while cameras rolled. "She wore the boots you bought her", she said, referring to the profusely studded, knee-high footwear.

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

Bourdain and Busia were married for nine years and split in 2016.

Now her friend and #MeToo crusader McGowan has penned a heartfelt letter, obtained by, about the two, as she urged anyone to get help should they need it. "I would ask that you respect their privacy and mine".

McGowan said Argento had unfairly faced blame in the aftermath of Bourdain's death. His brilliant, fearless spirit touched and inspired so many, and his generosity knew no bounds. After she posted a statement on Instagram Friday, calling him "my love, my rock, my protector", she was photographed leaving her home over the weekend with one of her two children. "I am beyond devastated". "His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller".

"Anthony's depression didn't let him, he put down his armour, and that was very much his choice".

Fans of the Bourdain family took to the comments section to voice their support, with one supporter writing: "Thoughts and prayers for your daughter and you as you navigate the water ahead".

Fashion designer Kate Spade, 55, committed suicide at her NY home on June 5 and Ines Zorreguieta, 33, the sister of Queen Maxima of the Netherlands, was found dead in her Buenos Aires apartment on Wednesday.

Following Bourdain's suicide in France, McGowan traveled to Europe to be by Argento's side. "I see all of us who have carried on", she continues, before asking people to blame stigmas around mental illness - not Argento - for his death.

"He loved and was loved in return", Cooper said of Bourdain.
