Anthony Bourdain, chef, author and television personality, has been confirmed dead by CNN. The host of CNN’s Emmy-award-winning series, Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown was found unresponsive on Friday morning by close friend and fellow chef, Eric Ripert. Both were filming an upcoming episode of Bourdain’s show in Strasbourg, France.

“It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain,” CNN shared in a statement. “His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller. His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly difficult time.”

Bourdain had spoken previously about his past struggles with drug addiction in Kitchen Confidential.

This occurs just 3 days after Kate Spade’s suicide. Suicide is now the tenth leading cause of death in the United States, with middle-aged adults being especially at risk. Nearly 45,000 lives were lost to suicide in 2016, according to the CDC.
