I’m trying to get caught up on the tragic death of Scot Young, the millionaire ( or billionaire according to his ex-wife) who appeared on Ladies of London as the girlfriend (fiancée in waiting) of American model Noelle Reno.
To refresh your memory the major storyline of Noelle and Scot was that all of his money was frozen because of a 6 year long divorce process where he was accused of hiding billions of dollars off shore by his ex who was fighting for her half. Recently the judge had determined Scot’s worth at about 60 million dollars and awarded the wife half. He also wished her luck in actually seeing a dime of the money and it seems according to the sources I have read that as of last summer she had still not received her settlement.
Here is an excerpt of a blog I wrote on Ladies of London that was a typical scene with Scot, who seemed to be one of the men on the show that enjoyed the cameras…
Noelle and Scot were supposed to move into their apartment, but somehow Scot has failed to mention a delay in moving to Noelle. They are not getting on well. Noelle and Scot go wine shopping, and a lovers quarrel breaks out. Scot asks Noelle if she really wants everyone overhearing this. Noelle tells him no one is listening. And she is probably right, no one is, except the guys with the cameras. Noelle goes in on Scot telling him he needs him to man up and take care of his responsibilities. Then, ten seconds later they kiss and go upstairs for wine. It was like a pop up shower, it seemed threatening, but quickly blew over.
Reports of a season two of Ladies of London had recently been announced.
On Monday evening Scot “fell” from a four-story window in a swanky section of London and landed on a spiked wrought iron fence where he was gruesomely impaled. Fire and rescue had to cut the fence apart to remove the body. The police have NOT ruled the death suspicious. It is unclear if Noelle was home at the time. Some sites are reporting the death as a suicide but there has been no official confirmation. Friends of Scot said that he was distraught over his financial situation but one said “there were also other issues.”
Noelle gave this short statement to the press, “I am distraught by the sudden loss of my best friend and ask that you give me the respect and privacy I need to grieve in peace.”
