Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s Wife Commits Suicide

| Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad


So so sad.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s wife Mary Richardson Kennedy took her own life Tuesday by hanging herself in the barn of her Mount Kisco, NY home.

A source close to Mary claims:

"I spoke to Mary on Monday and she sounded extremely down. She was very depressed and despondent and worried about the future. Mary said she was facing financial ruin, with American Express coming after her hard for an outstanding debt, along with several other creditors. In addition, she was concerned that Robert was about to substantially reduce the amount of financial support he gave her and she was terrified she would have to file for bankruptcy and lose her home."

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. had filed for divorce from Mary in 2010 after 16 years of marriage and four children, and has recently been dating actress Cheryl Hines.

Mary’s friend also revealed:

"It was very tough for Mary to deal with Robert dating someone else, and it really didn't help that the new woman is a celebrity. She would see photos of the two of them together and it would drive her nuts. I think, deep down, she had still harbored a belief they would get back together but it had recently become blindingly clear that wasn't to be."

Apparently, Mary had been battling with alcoholism and depression for quite some time, but to many she was considered an amazing woman who adored her children.

Our hearts go out to Mary’s family and friends.

    There really must be a CURSE on this poor family.

    How many tragic deaths have happened to the Kennedy clan in the last 100 years?

  2. 2

    Breaking News! Like a day ago….. wow, you are really working a slow news cycle here Perez.

    He was married to his first wife and had children. He left her and had the marriage
    While I admire RFKJ work with the environment he should treat women with respect.

    sure she killed herself!!!

    Even if there were a "curse", she's not a Kennedy. She only married it. I guess the Kennedy men likes their women cray cray.

    The entire Kennedy clan needs to be committed to an insane asylum.

    Re: guyonacourt – It's not a curse; they are a really fucked-up sick & greedy family…

  9. 9

    Robert F. Kennedy Jr. cheated on his first wife with Mary Richardson, and then cheated on Mary with his current Hollywood whore/actress he's with now….

  10. 10

    Why do people find "suicide" so sad? They took their own life. I think the word you're looking for is pathetic.

    Just one more Kennedy's tragedy!Sooo sorry!

    Sad very sad. Yet another classic case of a divorced woman living beyond her means & not moving forward with her life. She married well & with 4 kids had plenty to be happy about. Not to mention lots of help at her disposal. I hope she is at peace because her kids now won't be.

    Re: MzSavvy

    He was not giving her the money he was ordered to. He infact wanted to lower any money he had to give her. Another ahole that wants to have his money to spend on some Hollywood whore and let his ex and his kids eat hot dogs while he eats lobster. She should have known what he was , he cheated with her and annuled his first marriage because he was sucha good Catholic and couldnt remarry unless he annuled the marriage. I guess he couldnt get this marriage annuled and he had to figure a way to get rid of her ( think marilyn Monroe) so now he is esfree to marry the tramp he was running with while married to Mary.. Typical male Kennedy biggest whores around and if you can't get an annulment or if you knock a woman up you get rid of them (think Mary Jo) , They get away with rape) think wm Smithand teddy who helped him get off)
    Teddy destroyed his first wife, Jack treated Jackie like dirt and sc

    American Express had a hand in this. i have seen them financially ruin people and their lives over and over. They throw truck loads of money at people then demand full repayment in as little as a week. No correspondence entered, or else they will destroy your credit rating and take any assets even the family home. They need to take some responsiblity for this.

    Cheryl Hines demonstrated all the maturity of a thirteen-year old by bragging and tweeting details of her taking it up the ass from RFK, jr. I hope they both get AIDS. Either way, Hines's career is over. May RFK go to hell, too.

    Re: Rossi

    Hines is a horse faced POS. RFK jr. was cruel in the way he tossed Mary aside. Yes, he married her because she was pregnant and he probably threw that up in her face telling her he was forced into the marriage etc. What a shitbag he is. Ethel has raised a passel of selfish, self centered, entitled, pompous azzholes with the morals of alley cats who think of nothing except themselves.
