David Carradine was struggling with finances: SourceJune 6th, 2009 - 12:52 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, June 6 (ANI): David Carradine, who was found hanging in his Bangkok Hotel room on Wednesday, had been struggling with financial concerns, a source close to the actor has revealed.
The source added to FOX News, the 72-year-old desperately reached out to some friends in the business that he hadn’t been in contact with for quite some time just weeks ago, asking them to do whatever they could to help him boost the bank balance.
“David had been trying to make some fast cash doing personal appearances and things. It was a rough year for him, and he was a big spender and always in debt, but he wouldn’t have killed himself over finances. He wouldn’t have hung himself, that was too much effort. His ego would never have let him do that,” the source revealed.
Nathan Folks, producer of “Last Goodbye,” in which Carradine starred with his daughter, told Tarts that Carradine was “definitely not” suicidal.
Actress Bai Ling, who worked with Carradine on the action comedy “Crank: High Voltage”, also expressed the same feelings.
“I don’t believe he would have killed himself. Even though he was a very complicated man he was so at peace with himself. He did so many good things and really wanted to do more things, he told me his career was just really starting and new,” Ling said.
“You can see thru his eyes he is a complicated but funny person - he spent 20 years mainly doing independent films which I think made him have a lot of interesting thoughts in his head. But he really was someone who was full of life,” she added. (ANI)
