British fashion designer Alexander McQueen has been found dead after committing suicide.
Alexander McQueen has committed suicide.
The 40-year-old fashion designer - whose celebrity fans include Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell - was found dead at his London home, just days after the death of his beloved mother and three years after his close friend Isabella Blow took her life.
A source at his London office confirmed to the Mail Online: "It is a tragic loss. We are not making a comment at this time out of respect for the McQueen family."
McQueen - who was born in London's East End - was named British Designer of the Year on four occasions between 1996 and 2003 and made clothes for a whole range of high-profile stars, including Britain's Prince Charles.
He was also awarded a CBE as well as being named International Designer of the Year at the Council of Fashion Designer Awards.
Late style icon Isabella - who killed herself in May 2007 after being diagnosed with ovarian cancer - was widely credited with discovering him as a young designer, helping him on the way to his global success.
However, McQueen - who was openly gay and once described himself as the "pink sheep of the family" - was forced to deny rumours there was a rift between the pair at the time of her tragic death.
He said: "It's so much b******s. These people just don't know what they're talking about. They don't know me. They don't know my relationship with Isabella. It's complete bulls**t.
"People can talk; you can ask her sisters.... That part of the industry, they should stay away from my life, or mine and Isabella's life. What I had with Isabella was completely disassociated from fashion, beyond fashion."
Badu used her opening monologue at Sunday night’s awards to tell Azalea, “what you doin' is definitely not rap.”
It's Monday morning and my bones hurt. I'm tired, hung-over, and there's a slight ringing in my ears.
