2014 already has a tragic celebrity suicide with the death of designer and The Rolling Stones legend Mick Jagger’s partner L’Wren Scott. On March 17, Scott was found in her apartment by an assistant, kneeling with a black scarf wrapped around her neck. The scarf was tied to a door handle. The designer and former model, who had been with Jagger for over a decade, was at the time reported to be planning to close her fashion business, said to be $6 million in the red. Some people don’t understand how celebrities can be driven to take their own lives when on the outside, it seems they have everything. But celebrities are human too. They feel the same pressures as the rest of us and worse still, they have to live through those difficult times in front of prying eyes which must undoubtedly increase the pressure. In August 2013, Lee Thompson Young, an American actor famous for his role in the Disney series “The Famous Jett Jackson,” was found dead in his Los Angeles apartment. He died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Young was said to have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and suffering from depression.
Depression is often the most common reason for suicides. The scary thing about depression is someone you love could be suffering from it without you or anyone else knowing it. In 2011, Las Vegas had the highest suicide rate and Miami was among the top 10 most suicidal cities in America witha rate of 17.1 per 100,000 people annually. When you are faced with the pressure of living every waking moment being hounded by the press, you could very well be driven over the edge. There are those who are lucky to have a strong support system, but sadly some, celebrity or not, just don’t see a way out. Other notable celebrities who have sadly taken they lives include Kurt Cobain and country music star Malinda Gayle “Mindy” McCready in 1994 and 2013 respectively. Halle Berry, Owen Wilson and Tina Turner have all survived suicide attempts. You don’t need to be a celebrity to be driven into that cold dark place, and more often than not, being a celebrity actually drives you there.
