The girlfriend of the late chef, author and documentarian, Anthony Bourdain, has shared a heartfelt, if slightly cryptic, message following the tragic suicide death of her TV star boyfriend. Italian actress Asia Argento posted a quote to her Instagram and Twitter accounts, along with the Bible verse Luke 8:17, which reads, “For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.”

Argento also shared a post of a prayer in Spanish, asking for God’s guidance, as well as some video footage of herself in a car, listening to David Bowie’s “Lazarus,” Bustle reported.
The eerie lyrics go as follows:
I’ve got scars that can’t be seen
I’ve got drama, can’t be stolen
Everybody knows me now
Look up here, man, I’m in danger
I’ve got nothing left to lose
I’m so high it makes my brain whirl
Dropped my cell phone down below
Ain’t that just like me?”
Bourdain was found dead in his hotel on June 8 while in France filming an episode of his popular CNN series “Parts Unknown.”
Argento’s close friend, actress Rose McGowan, detailed how both Bourdain and Argento had suffered from bouts of depression.
“Through a lot of this last year, Asia did want the pain to stop. But here’s the thing, over their time together, thankfully, she did the work to get help, so she could stay alive and live another day for her and her children,” the actress wrote in an open letter, according to the Independent. “Anthony’s depression didn’t let him, he put down his armor, and that was very much his choice. His decision, not hers. His depression won.”
Argento’s recent posts weren’t the first in which she used a biblical reference to communicate her thoughts. Following the explosive sexual assault revelations surrounding Harvey Weinstein last fall, the actress opened up about her own creepy encounters with the Hollywood producer in an interview with Ronan Farrow.
Argento shared the published New Yorker piece on social media, along with text from John 8:32: “You will know the truth. And the truth will set you free.”
