Sachs was found dead in his home in Switzerland, German media reported May 8, 2011. REUTERS/Arnd Wiegmann/files BERLIN – Billionaire playboy Gunter Sachs, the German-born former husband of Brigitte Bardot, shot himself to death at his home in the Swiss resort of Gstaad at the age of 78, German television network ARD said on Sunday. In a suicide note from Sachs distributed to Swiss and German media outlets by his family, Sachs said he had been suffering from a “hopeless illness” and that he felt he was losing his memory, ability to think and communicate clearly. “That menace was for me always the lone criteria for putting an end to my life,” Sachs said in the note. His family said it had been Sachs’ “expressed wish” to have the note published after his death. The family did not provide details on his death. But German media quoted Swiss police saying he shot himself to death on Saturday at his chalet in Switzerland. Sachs became a Swiss citizen in 1976. Sachs was the great-grandson of Adam Opel, the founder of the Opel car company. Thanks to his great wealth, Sachs was a high-profile member of the “jet set” in the 1960s and 1970s. Sachs was romantically linked in the early 1960s with Iranian queen Soraya Esfandiary. He married Bardot in 1966, just weeks after they met. After their divorce three years later, Sachs married a former Swedish model, Mirja Larsson, in 1969. Sachs, who was born in the southern German town of Schweinfurt in 1932, was also known around the world as a photoGrapher, art collector and maker of documentary films.
