Anthony Bourdain and wife separate in unconventional way

Oh boy. The latest news in celeb-breakup land comes from Anthony Bourdain and his kickass jujitsu-fighting wife, Ottavia Busia.

Bourdain and Busia, who is 38-years-old, welcomed daughter, Ariane, the same year and soon had matching chef’s knife tattoos, reported People.

Bourdain was previously married to Nancy Putkoski, his high school sweetheart, for 20 years.

The TV presenter and mixed martial arts fighter Ottavia Busia separated “a while” ago, according to sources.

“Because of professional decisions we both have made, my husband and I have been for years in an unconventional relationship”, Busia told Page Six.

While Anthony has yet to comment on his divorce, the famous chef has called his family “dysfunctional”, as his job as host of CNN’s Parts Unknown has created an interesting schedule for him and his family. We respect the decision the other has made. “I love my family but it’s not an ordinary family”.

“We make fun of each other a lot”, she said. And we’ll always consider ourselves a family, ‘ she added.

Bourdain is also known for the shows “Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations” and “The Layover”.

Busia has recently posted photos with Bourdain training together in Southampton, New York, having a family water gun fight and last week, the fighter congratulated the chef on Instagram for his recent Emmy win.
