Last week Mick Jagger’s long time companion and famed fashion designer L’wren Scott committed suicide , hanging her self in her $5.6 Million dollar Chelsea apartment, that probably did not belong to her…. See, it comes out that L’wren was living a facade and no one in her circle knew how bad she was having it….. She kept the struggles she was going through a secret.
Within hours, Scott’s life was revealed to have become an elaborate facade — her business at least $6 million in debt, her fashion-world friends and celebrity clientele unaware of her despair. She was just one of countless New Yorkers who secretly fake their fabulous lives.
This is truly sad, all because you couldn’t keep it real, it appears that L’wren was turning 50, her business was closing, and she’s friends with celebrities but can’t go to them [for help],” Lawlor says. “People come to New York City and want to be part of a certain clique, and think they are. But it often catches up to them.”
Despite what her life looked like from the outside, it was nothing like what it seemed. People thought she was one of the Jones’s but essentially she was trying to keep up with the Jones’s like everyone else. She had all of these celebrity “friends” yet when it counted most she couldn’t go to them for help.
Good and smart people get caught up in the perks of working in the entertainment industry all the time, and get into trouble when they try to compete with other people doing the same thing they are – LIVING ABOVE THEIR MEANS.
This was a great story, sounds like the millions of Americans that are living an edited version of their lives on Instagram,Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter. Only posting the most carefully curated moments of their lives. That’s why people should take Instagram pictures and social media statuses with a grain of salt. Most people are trying to convey an image and not their true reality.
Sounds like she was…..Just doing what regular folks do!
