English beauty dies in roof plunge after her marriage split from John Huston's son
One of Hollywood's most glamorous marriages has ended in tragedy, with the death of English model Katie Jane Evans.
The 35-year-old wife of film star Danny Huston, son of directing legend John, threw herself from a California rooftop earlier this month. When the pair married in 2002, they were seen as a charmed couple. But the marriage had collapsed amid allegations that Katie Jane was addicted to drugs and alcohol.
A divorce case, launched last year by Katie Jane, shocked friends and relatives, including the Duchess of Cornwall's niece, Emma Parker Bowles, and movie star Anjelica Huston, Danny's half-sister. 'Katie couldn't get over the fact the marriage had failed,' said one London-based friend. 'She wanted a divorce but there was lots of anger and bitterness.
'They married too soon, they barely knew each other, and Katie didn't take to life with an actor as well as she thought she would.
'She was on anti-depressants and she had been in and out of rehab clinics for months. She was very up and down with her moods. On the night she killed herself, she called the police to tell them she had taken an overdose but she jumped before they could save her.
'Everyone is devastated. No one, including Danny, can come to terms with what has happened. When Anjelica was told she just collapsed in tears.'
