Brigitte Bardot’s ex-husband, Gunter Sachs, takes own life

A new article:

PARIS  ”Legendary German playboy Gunter Sachs, a former husband of French bombshell Brigitte Bardot, has killed himself at his Swiss chalet, his ex-wife’s office says. He was 78. Separately, his son Rolf Sachs confirmed the death to German celebrity magazine Bunte, and the German newsweekly Focus said he had shot himself. Swiss police could not immediately confirm the reports. Sachs was a veteran of the go-go 1960s who helped make the French Riviera resort Saint Tropez a playground for rich and beautiful celebrities, such as film star Bardot, who was said to be devastated by the news. We called Gunter Sachs’s private secretary who confirmed the suicide to us, but we have no details on the circumstances, an official at Bardot’s animal rights foundation told AFP. The source said Bardot has been informed and is devastated. She had kept close ties with Gunter Sachs, who was a guest when we celebrated 20 years of the foundation. A billionnaire philanthropist and art collector, Sachs was the grandson of the found of car giant Opel and the third of Bardot ƒÂ•s three husbands. A few hours after meeting her for the first time he had a helicopter fly over her famous Cote d’Azur home, La Madrague, and shower it with hundreds of red roses. It’s not every day that a man drops a tonne of roses in your yard, she later wrote. The couple married a few weeks later on July 14, 1966, in Las Vegas. The divorced just over three years later. ‚© Copyright (c) AFP
