Last Monday, Rosie O’Donnell’s ex-wife, Michelle Rounds was found by authorities in her apartment dead from an apparent suicide. It’s a tragic loss for her family who were all devastated by the situation. Speaking to TMZ, Rosie said, “I am saddened to hear about this terrible tragedy. Mental illness is a very serious issue affecting many families. My thoughts and prayers go out to Michelle’s family, her wife and their child.”
Rosie and Michelle’s history was not long, but it was certainly eventful. The ex-couple started dating in 2011 and were married in a private ceremony in June 2012. They broke up less than 2 years later in November 2014, and Rosie filed for divorce in February 2015.
Rosie cited irretrievably broken relationship as the reason for the divorce. The divorce was finalized in March 2016. Seven months after they were married, Rosie and Michelle adopted their daughter, Dakota, who is now 4 years old. Rounds was the other adoptive mother of Dakota, but she lost custody of her in 2015.
Rosie posted a drawing done by the couple’s daughter on Friday. Dakota wrote about how much she loves her mother. Michelle’s mom posted a statement about her daughter’s death and those struggling with their mental health.
