Last week, model Tom Nicon was reported dead the day before Milan Men’s Fashion Week after falling 40 feet to his death from his apartment in Milan. Today the Telegraph reports that Nicon’s tragic demise was in fact a suicide, and that he was reportedly depressed following a breakup with his girlfriend. Donatella Versace was among the last people to see Nicon alive. She said:
“Tom was with us on Friday morning for a final show fitting. He seemed fine and calm. He had already done three or four shows with us and he was a sweet boy. I just can’t understand why he did what he did. We would never have thought he would do something like this.
“When we heard the news we were all so upset and we still are all so very sad.”
Nicon was just 22 years old.
