Anthony Bourdain didn't have any narcotics in his body at the time of his death.
The celebrity chef tragically took his own life at the age of 61 in a French hotel room earlier this month, and now further details have been revealed following his passing.
Christian de Rocquigny de Fayel - the local prosecutor in charge of the investigation - has told the New York Times newspaper on Friday (22.06.18) that the star only had a ''trace of nonnarcotic medicine in a therapeutic dose'' in his body at the time of his death.
He was in France shooting a forthcoming episode of his show 'Parts Unknown' when he died, and the prosecutor previously said there was no evidence of foul play involved.
Bourdain - who died at the age of 61 - is survived by his 11-year-old daughter Ariane, who is his only child with his ex-wife Ottavia Busia.
There has been an outpouring of emotion following the sad news of his death, and former US president Barack Obama was one of those to pay tribute.
Obama - who shared a $6 meal in Hanoi, Vietnam, with Bourdain during his appearance on 'Parts Unknown' - wrote on the micro-blogging website: ''''Low plastic stool, cheap but delicious noodles, cold Hanoi beer.'' This is how I'll remember Tony. He taught us about food -- but more importantly, about its ability to bring us together. To make us a little less afraid of the unknown. We'll miss him.''
Fellow celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay tweeted: ''Stunned and saddened by the loss of Anthony Bourdain. He brought the world into our homes and inspired so many people to explore cultures and cities through their food.''
Meanwhile, Jamie Oliver wrote on the micro-blogging website: ''I have to say I'm in total shock to hear that the amazing @Bourdain has just died he really broke the mould, pushed the culinary conversation, Rest in peace chef thoughts and love to all his family and close friends xxxxxxxxxxx (sic)''
