Robert F. Kennedy Jr.s estranged wife, Mary, who battled her husbands rumored philandering by turning to alcohol and prescription drugs, hanged herself in a barn on their Westchester estate yesterday, sources told The Post.
The 52-year-old mother of four the latest victim of a family dynasty cursed with tragedies may have taken her own life because she was haunted by her broken marriage, her friends lamented.
She was deeply troubled, abusing alcohol and prescription meds, a close family friend said. She had cause. She was used up and tossed away by Bobby. That was awful.

Regarding her marital status at the time of her death, Mary Kennedy wasn’t divorced from Robert F. Kennedy Jr., her family attorney, Kerry A. Lawrence, told CNN.
Mary Richardson Kennedy was “a tremendously gifted architect and a pioneer and relentless advocate of green design who enhanced her cutting edge, energy efficient creations with exquisite taste and style,” Robert F. Kennedy’s family said in a statement.
She advocated finding a cure for food allergies and asthma and was a co-founder of the Food Allergy Initiative, which is the world’s largest private source of funding for food allergy research, Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s family said.
“It is with deep sadness that the family of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. mourns the loss of Mary Richardson Kennedy, wife and mother of their four beloved children. Mary inspired our family with her kindness, her love, her gentle soul and generous spirit,” the husband’s family’s statement said.
The couple married in civil ceremony in 1994 when Mary Richardson, a designer, was six months pregnant, according to the Westchester County Journal News. One month prior to the wedding, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. divorced his first wife, Emily Black, the mother of his two oldest children, the newspaper reported.
Details of the couple’s private lives were exposed after Robert F. Kennedy Jr. filed for divorce in Westchester County on May 12, 2010.
The next evening, according to police records, Bedford police responded to a 911 call. When police arrived at the Kennedy residence they found the couple in an argument over taking their four children to a carnival at St. Patrick’s School.
According to a “domestic incident” report filed by the officer on the scene, “Mr. Kennedy stated that his wife was intoxicated and was acting irrational so he took the children to the carnival to remove them from the situation.”
As a designer, Mary Kennedy specialized in green architecture, and in a book entitled “Kennedy Green House” and co-authored by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., he describes how he and his wife restored their flooded, black-mold-infested home into an eco-friendly residence.
In the book, her husband wrote that Mary Kennedy had worked for the design firm Parish-Hadley and worked on the renovation of the Naval Observatory in Washington, the official residence of the U.S. vice president.
What is it with Kennedy TEETH? Even their wives have these huge, frightening choppers. Hideous.
Amen ! Sister.
This is sad, 60 posts before God is mentioned. Please Lord watch over her family and find a way to lead them to you.
Reminds me of JFK and the young intern. Even a leftist writer called JKF a monster.
I agree, prayers and beams to the family. Rest in peace.
Just my opinion, but I won’t participate in the hardy har har posts...that’s a bit ugly, in my opinion.
sad - she married into an evil family - everyone suffers - too bad the kids will bear the name and all that goes with it.
Our Lord is a forgiving God, Im sure she was welcomed to her Heavenly home...
Peace and comfort for HER children...
Many are going to say “But we ate at your table and you taught in our streets,” and Jesus is going to say “go away, I never KNEW you.” The hardest and saddest words one could ever hear.............................
“The Kennedys seem to kick all their women to the curb.”
It all started with Rosemary. She showed signs of rebellion (not retardation) so Old Joe & Rose had her lobotomized and stashed away in a nunnery for the last six decades of her life.
Kennedy women are like PT boats: “They were expendable”.
Guilt, Escape or Revenge. The style of this suicide seems to be Revenge
Recently reviewed a paper on the Forensics of Suicide.
It claims there are three reasons for suicide:
Guilt, Escape or Revenge.
The style of this suicide seems to be Revenge
I remember when that worthless POS RFK Jr. divorced his first wife of about 13 years and 3 kids. He then had the gall to bribe the Catholic church into an annulment so he could marry number 2 in the catholic church. So now his first 3 kids are illegitimate. If I were them I would never speak to the lowlife again. Too bad he can’t seem to put a rope around his neck.
On behalf of abused women everywhere...
Wow That's Cold !
hi Shimmer! Haven’t see you around for awhile...or maybe i’ve been hiding. so true, nothing about the kennedys remotely appealing!
Or: ABANDON HOPE, ALL YE WHO ENTER HERE (per inscription over the Gates of Hell in Dante's Inferno).
Very good points Eva.
You noticed that too, huh...?
It's the Kennedys. Suicide. Case closed. Says Chief Wiggum.
