    Default English beauty dies in roof plunge after her marriage split from John Huston's son

    Charmed couple: Danny Huston and Katie Jane Evans, who killed herself this month

    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.'
    When the couple met at a party in early 2002, they seemed to have much in common: both went to good English public schools - Katie Jane attended Roedean, Danny was at Millfield - and both had high-profile friends and relatives.

    Huston, pictured in the 2006 film Alpha Male, is currently starring in the comedy How To Lose Friends And Alienate People

    The couple, pictured at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Los Angeles Tea Party in 2004, married six years ago

    Danny, 46, currently starring in the comedy How To Lose Friends And Alienate People, is the illegitimate son of John Huston and London-based actress Zoe Sallis. They met while Huston was separated from his fourth wife.
    'The chemistry between Katie and Danny was immediate,' said the friend.
    'Within two months they were married and they moved into a stunning house in the Hollywood Hills. When their daughter, Stella, came along a year later, they were over the moon.
    'But Katie found it hard that Danny was away so much for work. She felt very much on her own with the baby.'
    According to the records, Danny offered Katie Jane about 11,000 a month in support, said to be half his estimated earnings. She moved to a flat in Manhattan Beach, a Los Angeles suburb.
    Her friend said: 'They had shared custody of Stella and Katie got the house, but it had too many memories.'
    It is understood that Emma Parker Bowles had been with her at her flat on the day she died but was out when, at 5pm, Katie Jane jumped to her death. Ms Parker Bowles, who lives in Los Angeles, was not available for comment.
    But a friend of Danny said last night: 'He is stunned. Harsh things sometimes are said during divorce proceedings but he and Katie had moved beyond that. This is a tragedy for everyone.'

    I'm sorry but if you're going to off yourself just OD or something.. less mess to clean up and less people to traumatize. That being said, my heart goes out to Danny and his family... I know she was mentally ill and in and out of rehab, but you can't help but feel guilt when someone decides to drastically and selfishly end their life like this.

    I like Danny Huston and I feel so bad for him and his little girl. I did not know that his marriage was a mess and that his wife was suicidal and depressed. Danny is a working character actor, not an A-list celebrity, so he worked hard and frequently for his films.

    Suicide by jumping is a gross way to die, but I also think it's a big 'Fuck You' to those she left behind. I wish Danny and his baby girl the best.

    Ugh... just f*cking horrible.

    Like Lynnie said - dude, you have a child! Tone down that volume on your so-called-f*cked-up life for a milli second.

    Speaking of Lynnie, how is the little one?

    I think it's very sad for all concerned. She was an unwell woman - it's heartbreaking that she was never able to recover from her depression and be happy and healthy again.

    My thoughts are with her friends, family and especially her little girl.
