Robert Kennedy Jr. Opens Up About Wife’s Suicide

Mary Richardson Kennedy Suicide Picture With Family

Their poor, poor family!

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is speaking out about his estranged wife’s struggles with depression and the tragic suicide that left him a widower and left their four children without a mother.

He confessed:

"A lot of times, I don’t know how she made it through the day… She was in a lot of agony for a lot of her life."

Mary Richardson Kennedy battled alcohol addiction for years and was arrested in 2010 for driving under the influence of prescription medication.

She sought professional treatment and received unconditional love and support from her family and friends but there was nothing they could ultimately do.

Robert added:

"I don’t think anybody who was around her didn't do everything that they could to try to help her."

Tragically, she was never able to chase away her demons.

Mary hanged herself on Wednesday. She was 52.

    So sad for the children, this will be with them forever. For RFK, Jr., not so much. The couple wasn't living together - they were on two different coasts, and he is dating. He, along with so many of the Kennedy men, was not faithful to his wives. I hope no one brings up the "Kennedy Curse" because they brought on much of it by their own actions.

    Oh please. Kennedy's comments are very manipulative and spinning.
    Now he wants to make it sound like she always battled these demons. Puh-leze.

    If she was such a mess, why did he have 4 children with her??

    My guess? She was absolutely devastated by him dumping her after 16 years and then trying to get the kids as well.

    Devastating victimization of the mother. The demon was misery, and a divorce from a Kennedy intent to kill off his ex's soul spells that.

    No one wants to hear from him. He repeatedly attacked this woman in family court until she broke. RIP, Mary.

    Another woman destroyed by the Kennedys. Monroe, MaryJo, Joan and so on. They sleep around and cheat and ignore the family but when it comes time for the divorce they trump up reasons for that Catholic church Annuls that marriage so they can go and marry again, they don't want to pay spousal support so they go after the mother of their kdis why? Because they can they are Kennedys these men have no respect for women, their fathers and grand father had no respect fror anyone. I hope he is proud of what he did, He took a young girl that was baby sitting for his family and seduced her , married her , had 4 kids by her and then dumped her like her dumped his first wife and like his uncles he is banging a Hollywood tramp.

    I feel for their children. I thought it was Michael Kennedy who dated his children's babysitter. Supposed Mary dated him, he was married and had 2 children with his first wife. She got pregnant, he got a divorce, and married her. She knew of his infidelity, but it is a shame to hear of her problems and untimely death.

    This man is pure scum and a disgrace. He's trying to ease his guilt for building the noose that hung her. This was an angry suicide and I'm sure she left a suicide note implicating his behavior and the gruesome details of how he took her kids away; flaunted his relationship with that bimbo cheryl hines who was behaving like a teen tweeting everywhere they went and how they spent their time with MARY'S children! He didn't pay her bills, he was leaving her destitute! Who wouldn't go insane with that kind of emotional abuse? And shame on his sister Kerry who was supposed to be mary's best friend! She's out with bobby and cheryl and her polo lover's ex-wife even slept with RFK jr! I guess he wants to be his father and uncle killing off women. Who knows if it really was suicide. I hope Mary's family looks into this because that monster wouldn't even let the kids go to the memorial service for their mother that Mary's parents held in NYC! If he despised his wife so much why not let her family have the body? The kennedy's wouldn't let her up to hyannisport and she wasn't welcomed there since bobby filed for divorce. And they wanted her buried there? The kennedy name is a liability these days and so are the people who betrayed Mary even in her death. Soon her children will know the truth about their cheap unfaithful lying scum of a father pretending people told him it wasn't his fault Mary killed herself. Like hell it wasn't!

    Re: jk – Hey, get your brothers straight, would you, please? RFK jr is not the bro who allegedly had an affair with his babysitter and neither bro married in this way or had 4 kids with them.
    The bro you are speaking of is : Michael, he died in a skiing accident almost a year after the story about his babysitter broke, who at the time was 17. Since there was an investigation but no difinitive action was taken before his death.

    Re: Jon

    Michael Kennedy was the one who screwed the family babysitter. This family has so much class…they are right up there with the Kardashians. That's the next thing this azzhole family will do. They will foist a reality show on the public called "Keeing it Klassy with the Kennedy's". PUKE!

    And Bobby…do you onlly own one blue shirt?

    The Kennedy's are "gaslighters" — they convince their partners they're something wrong with them — when the screwed up ones are these selfish, entitled, limited scions of a philandering bootlegger.
