Prosecutor Christian de Rocquigny told The Associated Press on Saturday that the famed chef and host of the CNN series "Parts Unknown" used the belt of his hotel bath robe to commit suicide on Friday.

Travel and food superstar Anthony Bourdain died of a reported suicide and was found dead Friday, June 8, according to CNN. The cause of death is apparent suicide.

CNN has since confirmed that Bourdain took his own life. His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much. "Out of respect for the family at this hard time we have no further comment".

"Then you say, 'Have you thought about harming yourself?" In fact, many people who die by suicide are not known to have a diagnosed mental health condition at the time of death.

He continued: "I pray he is at peace from the bottom of my heart. My love and prayers are with his family, friends and loved ones".

Bourdain's partner, Asia Argento, also spoke out via Instagram on Friday. His brilliant, fearless spirit touched and inspired so many, and his generosity knew no bounds. My daughter and I are devastated by her loss, and can't even begin to fathom life without her.

In light of this tragic development, a wide range of people have taken to social media to express their sadness. In a 2016 episode, he visited a shopping area of Hanoi, Vietnam with former US President Barack Obama, and the two shared a meal. I immediately thought of Eric and his deep friendship with Tony when I heard the news today. He taught us about food - but more importantly, about its ability to bring us together. We were best friends trying to work through our problems in the best way we knew how.

"Anthony. One of my idols".
