Anthony Bourdain's sobriety was intact up until his death.
French prosecutor Christian de Rocquigney de Fayel told the New York Times in a text message that there were no drugs in Bourdain's system - save for a normal dose of a non-narcotic medicine.
Bourdain, whose career catapulted him from washing dishes at NY restaurants to dining in Vietnam with former United States president Barack Obama, was once called "the original rock star" of the culinary world, "the Elvis of bad boy chefs". "I never was a person who needed a drink".
Bourdain, host of CNN's food-and-travel-focused "Parts Unknown" television series, was 61. I've never felt the urge to.
Last week, it was reported that Bourdain was cremated in France and his remains were sent to his brother, Christopher.
A spokeswoman for Bourdain's estranged wife, Ottavia Bourdain, tells the outlet there are no plans for a public memorial "at this time". On Friday, she shared a photo of her love.
