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.

We have no idea what was going on in this man's life or his mind. We may never know, and it's none of our business anyway. The only ones that need answers are the loved ones he left behind.

This is a man who had a successful career. family, friends, and financial resources. What he did was not rational, especially under those conditions, and regardless of what the wife says, he had to be severely mentally unstable to the point where support systems should have been in place.

NIVEA did the right thing dropping Rihanna. She wants to live a life of drama that will bring her career down, do it! Can you say "Whitney and Bobby Brown"

So many uninformed people jumping to conclusions here. Give the family some space and have some respect for the grief they're suffering, especially his two boys.

Anyone notice the coroner is saying the family says he didn't have brain cancer. Who cares what they say, they may not know. The coroner should be the one to KNOW if he did or not.

I am thinking he did have brain cancer and the coroner just doesn't want to come out publicly and say it.

Umm... he left a note. Presumably it said SOMETHING about why he was taking his own life. Seems like "weeks" is an awfully long time to investigate this.
