Rosie O'Donnell's Ex-Wife Michelle Rounds' Death Ruled as Suicide
Michelle Rounds' body was found Sept. 11
Michelle Rounds death has been ruled as a suicide.
Officials at the Medical Examiner’s office in Orlando confirmed to The Blast that Rounds’ — she was previously married to Rosie O’Donnell — death was “ruled suicide, and the cause of death was listed as intoxication by amitriptyline, clonazepam, and quetiapine.”
Clonazepam can treat panic disorder and anxiety while Amitriptyline and Quetiapine can treat depression.
Rounds’ body was found at 7:07 a.m. on Sept. 11, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office previously told The Blast, and was 46 at the age of her death.
A spokesperson for the Orange County Medical Examiner’s office in Florida told PEOPLE that the autopsy for Rounds was finished Sept. 12. The spokesperson added that there was no trauma to Rounds’ body.
After news of Rounds’ death broke, O’Donnell, who shared 4-year-old daughter Dakota with Rounds, said in a statement to PEOPLE: “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.”
The former couple wed quietly in June of 2012 at their home in Nyack, New York. The comedian filed for divorce from Rounds in February 2015, and the two reached a settlement in October 2015. At the time, O’Donnell told reporters both women were “very happy about the outcome.”
