In his final days, Anthony Bourdain was fed up with his fans, his fame and his relationship with actress Asia Argento, a new book claims.
Many of the Anthony's last texts were published in the unauthorized biography titled "Down and Out in Paradise: The Life of Anthony Bourdain," which gives some insight into the famous chef's state of mind.
"I hate my fans, too. I hate being famous. I hate my job," he apparently wrote to his ex-wife Ottavia Busia-Bourdain. "I am lonely and living in constant uncertainty."
Anthony also seemed to often be at odds with Asia, his girlfriend of two years. The book, written by journalist Charles Leerhsen, claimed the beloved "Parts Unknown" host became "incensed" just five days before his death when he saw photos of the "Land of the Dead" star dancing with a reporter at restaurant. Soon, Anthony got online and searched her name "hundreds of times," which prompted a fight.
"I am okay. I am not spiteful. I am not jealous that you have been with another man. I do not own you. You are free. As I said. As I promised. As I truly meant," he allegedly text Asia one day before his death. He added, "But you were careless. You were reckless with my heart. My life."
Asia supposedly replied, "I can't take this."
Per Page Six, one of Anthony's biggest gripes stemmed from the fact that Asia and the reporter were dancing in Ristorante Camponesch, where he and the actress would frequent together in Rome.
Amidst the fit of jealousy, the actress broke up with Anthony and cited his "possessiveness."
The following day, which was the day of his death, the book says Anthony reached out to Asia.
"Is there anything I can do?" he reportedly asked. She replied, "Stop busting my balls."
"ok," he reportedly wrote back in June 2018. Not long after, Anthony hanged himself in a hotel room in France.
After the death, Asia said many people blamed her. But, in a chat with "DailyMailTV" two months later, she maintained that she's not at fault, even insisting that infidelity ran rampant in the relationship.
"People say I murdered him. They say I killed him. I understand that the world needs to find a reason. I would like to find a reason too. People need to think that he killed himself for something like this. He cheated on me, too. It wasn't a problem for us," she said. "He was a man who traveled 265 days a year. When we saw each other, we took really great pleasure in each other's presence, but we are not children. We are grown-ups."
