"I am saddened to hear about this awful tragedy", O'Donnell responded to the news. Mental illness is a very serious problem that affects many families.

Rounds and O'Donnell met in 2011 and were married in 2012 before splitting two years later. Rosie filed for divorce in February 2015, citing their relationship was irretrievably broken. And previous year, Rosie confirmed she had sole custody of Dakota, in an "Ask Ro" Q&A on her website. However, a spokesperson for the Orange County Sheriff's Department shared, "They are not calling this a suicide at this time".

Rosie O'Donnell and Michelle Rounds watch the action during the men's singles third round match between Novak Djokovic of Serbia and Julien Benneteau of France during Day Seven of the 2012 US Open at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center on September 2, 2012. TMZ reported that Rounds had threatened suicide before taking the medication and that O'Donnell had called 911 to save her estranged wife's life.
