Ashley Judd has revealed that her mother, Naomi Judd, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. In an interview with Good Morning America’s Diane Sawyer, the very emotional Ashley said that she was “deputized” by her family to share the news so they could get ahead of the “gossip economy,” and shared that she was the one who found her mother. She also read from a note from her sister, Wynonna Judd, who said she wasn’t able to discuss her mother’s passing publicly yet.
