Mark Fleischman, the former proprietor of the Studio 54 nightclub, intends to commit himself. On Saturday, he told a news source that he wanted to terminate his life with the help of Dignitas, an assisted suicide charity. In an interview with the New York Post, he explained his choice, saying that he is unable to help himself and is now faced with the alternative of suicide. He said, “I can’t walk, my speech is messed up, and I can’t help myself.” My wife assists me in getting into bed, and I am unable to dress or put on my shoes. I’m taking a peaceful exit. It’s the quickest route out for me.”

When founders Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager were charged with tax evasion, obstruction of justice, and conspiracy, he took over the club in 1978. Mark paid $4.75 million for the studio, which he sold to new owners in 1984.

Studio 54 began as the Gallo Opera House, an entertainment facility, in 1927. In 1942, however, CBS began using it as a radio and television studio known as Studio 52. The club became well-known for its celebrity guest lists, tight admittance rules, drug usage, and open s*xual activities. Mark bought it in 1980, sold it to new owners in 1984, and it has been a venue for Roundabout Theatre Company Broadway performances since 1998. Fleischman’s family, date of birth, job, and educational history have yet to be disclosed.
