Cesar Millan Reveals: I Attempted Suicide. The Mexican born American dog trainer was once had everything, but then it just came crashing down around him. The Dog Whisperer, back in 2010, had been working with with celebrity clients, had a hit show and was becoming an international advocate for bully breeds.
The forty three had felt his first loss, when his sixteen year old pit-bull called Daddy had died in February. Then following that in June his wife of sixteen years Illusion Millan, had filed for divorce.
“I was at the lowest level I had ever been emotionally and psychologically,” Milla wrote on his blog in August of this year.
That’s when he tried to attempt suicide, a revelation Millan makes in Cesar Millan: The Real Story, a documentary airing on Nat Geo Wild on November 25, 2012.
“Daddy was my Tibet, my Himalaya, my Gouda, my Buddha, my source of calmness,” Millan tells the Associated Press.
He did survive the overdose, he then went onto work, exercise and affection over antidepressants. His recovery progressed further when he met Jahira Dar, a woman Millan calls “the one.”
He plans to propose soon.
“I am a traditional guy, so I like to do the whole parent thing,” Millan said. “I know they are going to say yes, but I like the whole Cinderella story.”
