Scot Young found impaled on a fence below
his apartment

Scot Young, the broke and beleaguered boyfriend of Ladies of London's Noelle Reno, was found impaled on a fence outside his apartment in central London.

He reportedly fell 60 feet to his death from his fourth-story flat, according to Scotland Yard. Young was 52.

A horrific scene was described by a nearby worker, who said, "The police were visibly shocked — one said it was the worst thing he had ever seen on the job. It was all very distressing."

Scotland Yard currently says there is no reason to believe there is anything suspicious about the horrific apparent suicide.

But fuel is being thrown onto the conspiracy fire. The Telegraph is reporting that Young's friends don't think his death was an accident, saying they do not accept that their friend took his own life.

Young, who once was one of the United Kingdom's wealthiest men, had been in the hot seat for years for his involvement in one of the most high-profile divorce battles the entertainment world has seen, which saw him led out of the High Court in handcuffs to spend six months in jail.

Young has, quite literally, until his dying day, claimed he was bankrupt and penniless yet he was ordered by the court to pay his ex-wife and mother of his two daughters, Michelle Young, $31 million, which he had yet to do at the time of his death.

Reno stayed by his side during the entire divorce ordeal, which started a year before the two even began dating. She has not yet commented on her boyfriend's death. Young's ex-wife has come out saying, "It is a difficult time for us."
