Michael Madsen’s Son’s Tragic Suicide: A Father’s Search for Answers

Michael Madsen, a renowned Hollywood actor, is grappling with the tragic suicide of his son, Hudson Madsen. Hudson, a 26-year-old U.S. Army Sergeant, ended his life after his first tour of duty. The actor, famous for his roles in “Reservoir Dogs” and “Kill Bill,” was left in shock and disbelief, as he had not noticed any signs of depression in his son.


A Glimpse into Hudson Madsen’s Life

Hudson was the eldest son of Michael Madsen and his wife, DeAnna Madsen. He had three brothers, Kalvin, Luke, and two half-brothers, Christian and Max, from his father’s previous marriage. The acclaimed director Quentin Tarantino was his godfather. Hudson was married to Carlie in 2019, and they were planning to undergo IVF due to difficulties in conceiving naturally.

“I just want to give a shout-out to my amazing husband! Yesterday I had surgery to remove a tumor from one of my breasts and he was and has been so patient throughout this whole process.”

This was a post from Carlie a week before Hudson’s untimely death, praising his support during her surgery and recovery.
