[India], June 24 (ANI): 'Million Dollar Listing: New York' star Luis D. Ortiz is the latest one to open up about "struggling" with depression and suicidal thoughts.
Ortiz took to Instagram to share a message about his ongoing struggle, following the recent suicides of designer Kate Spade and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain
He wrote, "I have been wanting to share this for some time now but have been very reluctant to do so for the very same reasons most of us choose to keep our truths in the dark."
"However, ever since Kate [Spade] and [Anthony] Bourdain committed suicide I have been feeling the strong need and responsibility of sharing my truth with the hopes of a positive change," he added.
Through his post, Ortiz thanked his friends and family for "the genuine love and care" they gave him during these trying times. He also thanked those "who have constantly fought and continue to fight hard to engrave in me the perspectives they know I have the ability to understand in order to come back to the old full-of-light self I truly loved, respected and admired."
Earlier, the reality star announced that he was leaving the 'Bravo' series after 2016's season finale. (ANI)
