The celebrity chef and TV personality was cremated privately in Paris.
Anthony Bourdain has been cremated during a private ceremony in France, and his remains will now be flown back to the U.S.
The 61-year-old host of CNN’s Emmy-winning series “Parts Unknown” was found dead in his hotel room outside Strasbourg last week. The return of his remains to America had been held up by bureaucratic red tape, but they are now set to arrive Friday.
After the cremation, his girlfriend, Italian actress Asia Argento, posted a photo on Instagram Stories, showing her with actress Rose McGowan and two other friends.
Argento also posted a photo of a woman’s back with the cryptic caption, "Saved."
There has been speculation that there were issues in her relationship with Bourdain was troubled and that may have fueled his decision to end his life.
Meanwhile, comic David Spade, brother-in-law of designer Kate Spade, has donated $100,000 to the National Alliance on Mental Illness in her honor.
Kate Spade hanged herself in her New York City home just three days before Bourdain's death.
