Ladies of London guest star Scot Young passed away on Monday in a horrific accident. Young, the fiancé of Noelle Reno, reportedly fell 60 feet to his death after slipping from a window in his home.
“Bravo reality star Noelle Reno’s fiancé plunged to his death after falling from his $5 million home and impaling himself on iron railings on Monday,” the Daily Mail reported on December 10. “Scot Young, 52, suffered horrific injuries after plummeting four storeys [sic] from a window of his luxury central London penthouse.”
In photos taken at the scene, the railing below Young’s home has been removed, leaving blood-stained concrete in its place. According to the report, firefighters had to cut through the railing with an angle grinder before the body could be removed.
“Young, who was known as a ‘fixer for the super-rich,’ had been with Ladies of London star Noelle Reno for the past five years and the couple were engaged to be married,” the site continued. “His death comes almost a year after an extraordinary six-year court battle with his ex-wife Michelle, 49, who won a $30 million award but said it was a ‘disgrace,’ claiming he had hidden $630 million of his wealth in offshore accounts.”
On Wednesday, Ladies of London‘s Reno released a statement regarding Young’s passing.
“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.”
Gary Sutton, 57, who was working nearby, told Daily Mail, “It was a horrific scene. The police were visibly shocked — one said it was the worst thing he had seen on the job. It was all very distressing. It was horrible, I had to divert my eyes.” Another witness said, “The police had covered the body but I could see from behind that he was on the spike because I could see his feet dangling towards the basement floor.”
In an interview with OK! Magazine this past June, Ladies of London‘s Reno discussed her and Young’s wedding plans. “We’ve completely talked through it because we’ve been together 5 years, we’ve talked through every element of the wedding,” she told the magazine. “So it’s all pretty much there and we know what we are going to do.”
“I’m used to running production and doing events for my businesses, so I don’t think that I will freak out. Also my wedding doesn’t need to be my most beautiful day. I’m kind of used to having my picture out there, I’m now on a freaking reality TV show, I don’t need all of the attention.”
“It’s going to be a weekend and just one big festival party,” she added. “Were going to have a lot of fun, and great DJs.”
The Daily Mail claims suicide is suspected but not yet confirmed.
News of Young’s death comes just days after reality star Stephanie Moseley died in a murder-suicide. As the Inquisitr reported, Mosley’s husband reportedly suspected she was cheating. In a second Inquisitr report, the man suspected of having an affair with Moseley was R&B star Trey Songz.
Ladies of London‘s first season wrapped in July, and there has been no word yet on a second season.
