This has really shocked me (L'Wren Scott was the girlfriend of Mick Jagger). It just goes to show that you really can't know how someone is feeling inside- that a person can appear to have everything and yet can be utterly desperate for help - help which in her case she did not get. Poor woman, I do not want to think how lonely her last hours must have been.
I heard a bird cry, sharp and free. My name is Jordan.
I blame the people that find it interesting and want to see such pictures! Unfortunately, this is what passes as news these days and they have to dredge the barrel to keep up with the 24 hour mentality!
I've never heard of L'Wren Scott. But it is always a mystery why people who are seemingly very successful kill themselves. Like 36 year Malek Bendjelloul. I guess depression can hit anyone.
Malik Bendjelloul, the Oscar-winning director of the documentary Searching for Sugar Man, has died aged 36, after a short spell suffering depression, his family said on Wednesday.
"I can confim that it was suicide and that he had been depressed for a short period of time," the acclaimed director's brother Johar Bendjelloul told the Aftonbladet newspaper the day after Malik's body was found.
First-time director Bendjelloul won an Academy Award for best documentary feature last year for Searching for Sugarman, which told the story of a musician who became famous without knowing it.
Searching for Sugar Man won various other awards, including best documentary prizes from Britain's Bafta and the Directors Guild of America last year, two world cinema prizes at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and a string of prizes from the Guldbagge Awards in Sweden. www.thelocal.se/20140514/sugar-man-director-malik
We are famous for "Stockholm syndrome": "Q: Hey, what's up with Matt? His Dad is on social security, his mom got laid off, his sister's kids get free school lunches, he collects federal financial aid for college, and he only makes minimum wage working at Walmarts. Yet he keeps talking about how we need to cut taxes for the wealthy and quit spending so much on social programs. A: Yeah, he thinks he's going to be a millionaire soon. He's got Economic Stockholm Syndrome." (Urban Dictionary)
