That's right. Fame and fortune are not a guarantee of a happy life. Sometimes, we don't know that rich and famous people might have complicated problems as they are good at keeping them as secret. We feel very shocked when they do something unexpected like committing suicide to run away from their problems.
It's a shame that none of his loved ones saw how bad he was before it was too late to intervene. Depression is an isolating illness and the stigma surrounding it prevents people from reaching out for help.
