Tony Scott Suicide

NO Brain Cancer

8/20/2012 4:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0820_tony_scott_tmz_Article_3Tony Scott did NOT have inoperable brain cancer, or for that matter brain cancer at all  ... this according to Scott's family.

TMZ has learned ... Scott's wife told investigators the rumor that Tony had inoperable brain cancer is "absolutely false."

Although the autopsy results have been deferred pending more tests, our sources say there is no evidence of brain cancer.

What's more ... we're told Scott's wife says Tony did not have any other severe medical issues that would have caused him to take his own life.

So I guess all the idiots who were posting that an illness justified this cowardly suicide act were, well, idiots.

Guy's got two sons. And a family. And people who love him. And they are now all in pain. Forever. Especially those kids. Instead, everyone's talking about how much his movies meant to the world and how much he'll be missed. And how sad it is. Ya know what - screw him. He ended it all. He could have spent a fortune on help, or just gotten a divorce and lived in an apartment and tried to cope. But now those kids have no dad and they have to remember him jumping off a freakin' bridge. So ya know what -- screw him. Forever. I'm sorry he had pain in his life, but he's a selfish prick who has transferred that pain to countless others. I know the trolls will come out telling me to be nicer and that mental illness is important. But I've seen enough of this. Screw him. It's a selfish act that has wrecked dozens of lives.

That goes to show you how fast LIES & DECEPTION can be spread in today's day and age. There’s thousands of websites claiming he had brain cancer. ALL WRONG!

As of 7:15 PM (Central), ABC is standing by their original story.. No retraction and the "Tony Scott had been suffering with inoperable brain cancer" story is still posted.

I'm sure Scott's family is really taking time to let TMZ know the details of his suicide!
