Legendary German playboy Gunter Sachs, a former husband of French bombshell Brigitte Bardot, has died at his Swiss chalet, his son Rolf Sachs told celebrity magazine Bunte on Sunday. He was 78.

Sachs, a veteran of the go-go 1960s who helped make the French Riviera resort Saint Tropez a playground for the rich and beautiful, shot and killed himself, a separate report on the website of German newsweekly Focus said.

A police spokesman in the Swiss canton of Bern could not confirm the reports.

"We cannot say anything for the moment," he told AFP.
