Anthony Bourdain's daughter performs in concert after his death

Val Kilmer Anthony Bourdain

Anthony Bourdain's 11-year-old daughter Ariane bravely performed in a concert days after the chef's suicide.

"Our little girl had her concert today", Busia-Bourdain wrote in her first post to social media since Bourdain's death. "She was awesome. So strong and fearless", Ottavia captioned her Instagram post. "She wore the boots you bought her", she said, referring to the profusely studded, knee-high footwear. "I hope you are having a good trip, wherever you are", Busia wrote.

"His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much".

Bourdain opened up about his relationship with Busia in a 2016 interview with The New Yorker. Gladys spoke fondly of her son's writing ventures to Today, noting that he had an "incredible vocabulary" and his second grade teacher wanted to move him to a private school because he had surpassed so many of his peers in reading. A marathon of Bourdain's favorite Parts Unknown episodes will air Saturday, June 9th at 8:00 pm, with the previously scheduled Berlin episode debuting Sunday, June 10th at 9:00 pm with a special introduction from Anderson Cooper. "Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly hard time", CNN said in a statement.

Asia Argento, Bourdain's girlfriend of two years, issued a statement saying the iconic cook "gave all of himself in everything he did". After she posted a statement on Instagram Friday, calling him "my love, my rock, my protector", she was photographed leaving her home over the weekend with one of her two children. "I am beyond devastated".

Meanwhile, Jonas cut quite the figure in a simple navy suit, which he wore with a black button-down shirt and white sneakers. She said they went to the Met Gala together as they were both wearing ensembles by Ralph Lauren.

Since then, Argento has been trolled on Twitter with accusations that she hastened the TV travel host's death after she was photographed hugging French journalist Hugo Clement days before.

"They laughed, they loved and he was her rock during the hardships of this a year ago", she said.

"My thoughts are with his family", Argento said. "I have changed. My husband half-jokes that he married Sophia Loren but ended up with Jean-Claude Van Damme", the 49-year-old wrote in the article.

Authorities in France are yet to transport Bourdain's body to the United States.
