Barbra Streisand - Music Video Director 'Commits Suicide'

A music video director who worked with artists including Barbra Streisand and Sade has committed suicide, according to reports.
Jack Semmons was found dead at his home in East Sussex, England on Thursday (07Jul11) after allegedly ending his life with a 'euthanasia kit' he purchased online.
Semmens is said to have sent an email to friends in which he revealed he refused to pay for assisted death at the Dignitas clinic in Switzerland, writing, "£10,000 to Dignitas? I don't think so."
A police source tells Britain's Daily Telegraph it is "likely to be the case" that the father of five was suffering from a terminal illness.
Semmons, who also wrote a number of books, directed pop videos for Sade, Streisand, Leo Sayer and Alison Moyet.
