The widow of tragic author Hunter S Thompson has vowed never to remarry, because no man could fill the void he left.

The widow of tragic author Hunter S Thompson has vowed never to remarry, because no man could fill the void he left.

Anita - who married Thompson in 2003 - is still just 33 years old, 34 years younger than her late husband, but insists she will continue to dedicate her life to him following his suicide in February.

She says: "It's easy to be loyal. That's my choice. I don't have any intention of getting remarried. I'm 33, so statistically, I'm going to live for another 30 or 40 years. But no other man will be able to hold a candle to Hunter.

"I guess I'm in a bad position, but I'm not hypnotised. I'm not in a trance. I made a conscious decision to dedicate at least the next few decades to him when we got married."
