Tragic Anthony Bourdain looked exhausted in his final photographs just two days before his suicide.

The 61-year-old took his own life after he hanged himself inside the bedroom of his French hotel.

But as speculation grows as to why he took his own life he appeared tired and gaunt in his final two images.

In one image he is seen posing, wearing sunglasses and standing, with some restaurant staff in France along with his friend, Eric Ripert, who found Bourdain dead.

The second image shows Bourdain sitting alone at a table with his trusted notebook beside him.

His girlfriend Asia Argento, 42, posted — and later deleted — a bizarre message on social media just before her boyfriend committed suicide, according to reports.

Three hours before his death was first reported, the Italian actress posted an Instagram story which showed her wearing a ripped black T-shirt that read, “F–K EVERYONE” — with the cryptic caption, “You know who you are.”

She is reportedly ‘devastated’ about Bourdain’s shock death and later released a statement about her late partner.
