Anthony Bourdain had no drugs in his system when he died

Anthony Bourdain had no drugs in his system at time of death

Anthony Bourdain did not have drugs in his system at the time of his suicide, according to French authorities.

French prosecutors had previously said that all indications pointed to suicide by hanging. He said in a February interview with People magazine that he had stopped using illegal drugs some time ago, but continued to drink alcohol in moderation.

Christian de Rocquigny, the local prosecutor in charge of the investigation, told the publication there was only "a trace of a nonnarcotic medicine in a therapeutic dose" found in his system.




The 42-year-old, who paid tribute to Bourdain as "my love, my rock, my protector" following his death, began dating the 61-year-old in early 2017, after meeting on the set of his hit CNN travel and food series, Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. Celebrity Insider reported earlier that his mother, Gladys, for the very first time, got a tattoo in commemoration of her late son.

The family plans to have a small memorial in the future, she said.

His 1999 New Yorker article, Don't Eat Before Reading This, became his best-selling book Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly which catapulted him on to the global stage. His girlfriend, Italian actress Asia Argento, was one of the main accusers against Hollywood movie producer Harvey Weinstein. Parts Unknown saw Bourdain focus on cuisines from around the world, and he visited places including Ethiopia, Jamaica, Tokyo and Rome for the CNN series.
