Rounds died Monday at her home, reported TMZ, which was the first to break the news.

Michelle Rounds, the ex-wife of comedian and actress Rosie O'Donnell, has died of an apparent suicide, according to TMZ.

I am saddened to hear about this awful tragedy. Mental illness is a very serious problem that affects many families.

O'Donnell and Rounds, had one child together and split in 2014 and divorced two years later. Seven months after getting married, the couple announced on Twitter they had adopted a baby girl named Dakota (who is now four years old). O'Donnell said a year ago that she had sole custody of their daughter. "If this is triggering anyone, I hope they'll contact the suicide prevention hotline 1-800- 273-8255". They first started dating in 2011 and Wednesday a year later. She later advanced to becoming the top recruiter in New York City for Modis, a leading company in the IT staffing industry, and selected elite candidates for Fortune 500 companies. They officially divorced, citing an "irretrievably broken relationship", in February 2016, with O'Donnell telling reporters they were "both happy with the outcome". O'Donnell was awarded full custody of Dakota, now 4. "O'Donnell fired back and accused Rounds of using the child for her own gain in the case".

O'Donnell also retweeted a fan's message offering support and information on suicide prevention Friday.

Rounds had attempted suicide at least once before.
