Why Did Martin Devlin Attempt Suicide?
Martin Devlin attempted suicide on July 20, 2021, his ex-wife Andi confirmed on Twitter.
I'm utterly devastated to tell you that Martin tried to kill himself last night.
Our 20 year old saved his life, got to him in time… another 10 minutes and we would have found his body.

The broadcaster is admitted to the Auckland hospital and is in critical condition.
Andi and Martin’s son found Martin unconscious at his house and immediately rushed him to the hospital.
Andu picked up her son from university and was returning home. But, she sensed something was not right and decided to check in on her ex-husband.
The mother and son went to Martin’s house, where they found him lying unconscious.
Andi said if they were late by another 10 or 15 minutes, the outcome would have been ugly.
Fortunately, Martin is alive but is in terrible shape.
The reason for Martin’s suicide is not yet revealed.
A few months ago, Martin caused controversy after he attempted to physically assault a colleague in the NZME newsroom. Following the news, the media company NZME took him off the air.
It was also disclosed Devlin sent inappropriate messages to other colleagues. Later, Devlin admitted to the charges and apologized for his behavior.
Devlin confessed to suffering from mental health issues and was taking help from a professional.
His ex-wife, Andi, said he was doing well with counseling, but the news of a third investigation into the matter had upset him.
