Michelle Rounds: Estranged Wife of Rosie O'Donnell Attempts Suicide

by at .

Back in February, Michelle Rounds and Rosie O'Donnell separated after two years of marriage.

The split seemed to be somewhat amicable, but the divorce has yet to be finalized, and sources say the past month has put a serious strain on Rounds' and O'Donnell's relationship as co-parents.

First, O'Donnell's teenage daughter went missing, and has now chosen to move in with her birth mother.

Shortly thereafter, it was reported that Rosie is dating Tatum O'Neal, and the couple is rumored to be living together less than a year after the end of O'Donnell and Rounds' marriage.

Now, Radar Online is reporting that Rounds attempted suicide last night, and is currently under observation in an Upstate New York hospital.

“She had apparently taken some pills and drank wine,” an insider tells the website. “It looked to be a suicide attempt ”

Obviously, we have no way of knowing what might have driven Rounds to take such drastic action, but the source says her ongoing family struggles have been weighing heavily on the 43-year-old's mind in recent weeks.

“Michelle was very depressed lately over the divorce and custody battle with Rosie,” the insider claims. “In fact, in the past few days her and Rosie spoke and they had a bitter argument.”

Rounds is reportedly conscious and in good health. She is expected to be released from the hospital later this week. O'Donnell has yet to comment publicly on the matter.
