Ladies of London star Noelle Reno’s ex-fiancé, Scot Young, is dead after plummeting 60 feet from a fourth-story window and onto an iron fence, impaling himself, on Monday, Dec. 9.
Following the tragedy, the reality starlet, 33, deleted her social profiles and released a statement, “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.”
The 52-year-old’s untimely death comes a year after his high-profile divorce from his ex-wife, Michelle, ended in High Court. The since-bankrupt property tycoon was ordered to pay $30 million to his ex and was jailed for six months after refusing to reveal more details of his wealth during their bitter battle.
Earlier this year, Noelle commented on how her beau of five years was stressed because of his divorce and the dwindling bank account that followed. She told the ‘Evening Standard,’ “He still can’t deal with it. It has been so traumatic for him.”

After hearing of his passing, his ex-wife — with whom he has two daughters — commented, saying, “I am too upset to speak at the moment. I just have to look after my children and make sure they are OK. It is a very difficult time for us all.”
At this time, his death is not being treated as suspicious.
