Kevin McGee (right), the former husband of Little Britain star Matt Lucas, reportedly hanged himself in his flat in Edinburgh after leaving a status update suicide note on Facebook that read, "Kevin McGee believes death is much better than life." He was found by police.
The Daily Mail reports: "McGee, a TV producer, is thought to have become deeply depressed over
the past few months after breaking up with the comedian…Matt Lucas, 34, was said to be 'utterly destroyed' by the news and
was being comforted by close friend and comedy partner David Walliams
at his home in Marylebone, London. He was too devastated to
comment last night and did not attend an awards ceremony where he and
Walliams were due to make a guest appearance. He also pulled out of last night's performance of the West End play Prick Up Your Ears in which he is starring."
Lucas and McGee wed in a star-studded civil partnership ceremony in December 2006 and divorced in June 2008, in what was said to be the most high-profile divorce since same-sex civil partnerships began in the UK.
