Bankrupt business mogul Scot Young “was addicted to coke and was bipolar”


ADDICTED: Scot Young is allegedly addicted to cocaine [TIM STEWART]

Scot Young, 52, has died after falling from his £ 3.2million London penthouse on Monday.

His death has been shrouded in mystery with a friend saying he has feared for his life since being hanged over a balcony at the Dorchester Hotel in London two years ago.

Mr Young’s alleged suicide has also been linked to the deaths of four associates, including Trinny Woodall’s ex-husband Johnny Elichaoff, 55.

Yesterday David Ingram, who was the accountant overseeing Mr. Young’s bankruptcy, said: “I don’t think it’s a secret that he had his ups and downs.

“He provided me with letters from doctors and specialists indicating that he was bipolar and that he was taking medication for it.

“He also had an over-the-counter drug habit, cocaine. And there were times he would come to my office smelling of alcohol.”

Mr Ingram added: “He was desperate to get back on his feet and we were trying to come up with a plan where he would.”

The news comes just a day after Mr Young’s US-born ex-fiancée Noelle Reno, 33, allegedly made a dramatic call to brass shortly before her death.

She reportedly told officers “there’s a madman here” as she rushed out of the apartment they once shared.

Mr. Young had made an appointment with a mental health clinic on the day of his death.

He is also said to have attempted suicide in the past and has been severed twice under the Mental Health Act.

Miss Reno was reluctant to share the news of their separation due to her fragile mental state.

How exactly Mr. Young amassed – and then lost – his millions is unclear.

Seemingly derived from real estate deals, his fortune was once estimated at £ 400million, but his ex-wife Michelle – who fought a bitter divorce battle with him for six years – claimed he was worth ‘billions’.

He is said to have spent millions on designer clothes and sports cars and lived in a 12-bedroom mansion worth £ 19million in Surrey.

He also owned a £ 4.5million house in Miami and a series of properties in Mayfair and Knightsbridge worth at least £ 32million.

A source said that “Scot and his buddies were always trying to outdo themselves.

“It was about who had the biggest yacht, the fastest car. It’s money and power.”

He claimed he lost his fortune in a mysterious real estate deal called Project Moscow and was declared bankrupt in 2010.

His connections to other deceased businessmen have led to believe that he was murdered by gangsters for unpaid debts.

Scotland Yard said Mr Young’s death was suspicious. An investigation is due to open soon, but no date has been set.
