Anthony Bourdain & Parts Unknown in the Media

He made several off hand comments about it i. Describing his friendship and made a joke about it on one of the eps that Nugent was on.

The leaked texts also indicate that he wasn’t hoodwinked by Asia about the situation and viewed it as if she didn’t do anything wrong.

What leaked texts are you referring to?  I took it that he didn't believe the allegations, that's why he didn't think she did anything wrong, but if there are texts showing otherwise I'd like to see them.

I'm really torn on this and I'm not sure if Anthony really thought that Asia was not in the wrong.  Based on what I've read and seen, I think it's likely that he knew she did wrong, but, believed that she did not realize that she did wrong. That's why he supported the settlement. Then, later, something happened. I'm not sure what, but, for some reason, Anthony was disillusioned. I'm now rethinking my hole idea about his suicide. It was still his choice, of course, but, I just feel differently about it now.  We may never know, but, I think it's more complicated than what was put out initially.

I agree.  I could even believe he may have bought a story from her where she admitted doing it but said that at the time she didn't know what she was doing and has realized since then that it was wrong and now regrets it, etc.  Perhaps later on Tony realized she lied to him or was otherwise misrepresenting herself, hence his disillusionment and even feeling she betrayed him.  Especially after forking over all that money on her behalf.....

BTW, I have been feeling "differently" about his suicide since day one.....Agree that we may never know.  Several friends all say independently that they believe more will come out in time.  This is part of that.
