Tony Scott - Tony Scott Did Not Have Brain Cancer

Tony Scott did not have inoperable brain cancer.

The film director committed suicide when he jumped to his death from Vincent Thomas Bridge into the Los Angeles Harbor this weekend.

However, he did not have brain cancer at all according to Scott's family.

Tony's wife told investigators the rumor that he had inoperable brain cancer is ''absolutely false.''

Although the autopsy results have been deferred pending more tests, sources told website TMZ.com that there is no evidence of the disease.

His partner added that 'Top Gun' director Tony did not have any other severe medical issues that would have caused him to take his own life.

Los Angeles Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter stated the filmmaker's shocking passing ''was reported as a suicide'' and added that ''there was a note found at [Tony's] office by friends''.

The 68-year-old British-born director was brother to 'Prometheus' director Ridley Scott and is best known for his action films which include 'Beverly Hills Cop II' and 'Enemy of the State'.

On Sunday, he was seen parking his car on the cable-suspension bridge which connects the port district of San Pedro to Terminal Island before jumping into the water at 12:30 local time.

His body was recovered from the harbour less than three hours later.

Katherine Rowe, the director's spokesperson, issued a statement saying: ''I can confirm that Tony Scott has indeed passed away. The family asks that their privacy be respected at this time.''
