Mary Kennedy, the 52-year-old estranged wife of Robert F. Kennedy, was found dead at her home in Bedford, New York today. The police didn’t name Mary Kennedy, but they said they’re looking into a “possible unattended death” (aka a death that nobody witnessed) inside an “out building” on her property. Mary’s cause of death is of course not known yet, but Radar is hearing that she committed suicide. Mary’s family released this statement:
“We deeply regret the death of our beloved sister Mary, whose radiant and creative spirit will be sorely missed by those who loved her. Our heart goes out to her children who she loved without reservation.”
Mary became a Kennedy almost 18 years ago when she married Robert and Ethel Kennedy’s son Robert. They had four children together. Robert filed for divorce from Mary back in 2010, but the divorce was never finalized. Three days after Robert filed for divorce, Mary was busted for DUI.
TMZ also wants us to know that Robert F. Kennedy is currently dating Cheryl Hines. So I think I speak for all of us when I say: RUUUUUUUUN, Cheryl, RUUUUUUN. The Kennedy Curse is no joke and it’s truly worse than The Hunger Games.
