Noelle Reno and Scot Young

Noelle Reno‘s fiance, Scot Young, died yesterday in a horrific accident. I am shocked, and my heart hurts for all involved. Noelle and Scot appeared on the Ladies of London together.

Last night, Daily Mail reported that Scot died after falling from his fourth story window onto a wrought iron fence. Local authorities stated that the death was not being treated as suspicious. Several of Scot’s friends visited the scene, and one alluded to possible suicide.

Scot and his ex-wife, Michelle Young, fought over their divorce settlement for nearly seven years. Scot tried to commit suicide, according to the ex-wife, and he had been sectioned under the Mental Health Act and admitted to Priority Clinic in London twice during that time. Scot and Michelle have two daughters, Scarlet, 21, and Sasha, 19. 

Following the demise of their marriage, Scot offered a £300million settlement to Michelle. However, shortly after, he cried bankrupt and said he could not pay. Michelle accused Scot of hiding assets and claimed he was worth several billion pounds.

When he refused to give the court full access to his financials, a judge found Scot to be in contempt of court and sentenced him to six months in jail. In the end, only £45million of his money could be found. A judge ordered Scot to pay Michelle a £20million settlement and put an end to what he called the “most bitter matrimonial breakdown” he had ever seen.

Last night, Michelle told the Daily Mail that she and her two daughters are “devastated” over the news of Scot’s death. “We have been to hell and back,” she added. “I am too upset to speak at the moment I just have to look after my children and make sure they are okay. It is a very difficult time for us all.”

The scene of the accident has been described as horrific and distressing.

One friend who visited the scene said about Scot, “He was a great man and a great father but he had been let down by the British legal system.” Another friend refused to speak to the press, but he left a note for Scot, which read: “Sorry it had to end this way. You will be forever remembered and live long in the hearts of those who knew you. RIP.”

Noelle released a statement this morning. “I am distraught by the sudden loss of my best friend,” shared Noelle. “And I ask that you give me the respect and privacy I need to grieve in peace.”

Our condolences go out to Noelle and Scot‘s family and friends.
