Anthony Bourdain, the versatile chef and storyteller, CNN "Parts Unknown" host and New Jersey native, has died, according to multiple reports.

The network reported "with extraordinary sadness" that the cause of death was suicide by hanging.

Bourdain visited the Philippines at least twice for his show, "Parts Unknown", and said he had a "personal connection" with the country.

"His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller".

CNN confirmed the death, saying in a statement that Bourdain was found unresponsive Friday morning by friend and chef Eric Ripert, and calling his death a suicide. "Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly hard time", said the statement released by CNN.

Bourdain established himself as a premiere author and award-winning television personality, giving insights into the culinary world.

I'm delighted to be fighting at the iconic Manchester Arena for the first time in my career. 'I fell out of love with boxing. It was an easy fight. "They are all afraid to fight one another", said Fury.

Bourdain was born in New York City but grew up in Leonia and graduated from Dwight-Englewood School in Englewood in 1973.

He graduated from the renowned school Culinary Institute of America in 1978 and began running kitchens in his early adult years. His original travel show, No Reservations, featured a theme by Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, and Parts Unknown's theme was by Mark Lanegan and Josh Homme.

He became an executive chef at Brasserie Les Halles in 1998.

Bourdain was married twice: First to Nancy Putkoski from 1985 to 2005, and then to Octavia Bussia from 2007 to 2016.

Bourdain's death was the second suicide this week of a high-profile American figure.
