We have an update on the sad and unexpected death of Annabelle Neilson.
As previously reported, the former Ladies of London cast member was found dead last Thursday, with very few details available at the time this sad news broke.
Now, however, Westminster Coroner Court spokesperson Susan Lord has told Radar Online that the former model and British aristocrat died of a “cerebrovascular accident.”
In layman’s terms, this means Neilson passed away from a stroke.
Neilson’s body was discoverd in her London home around 10:20 p.m. on July 12.
Police never treated her death as suspicious, confirming at the outset of their announcement that no foul play was suspected.
The former Bravo personality was best known to television viewers for her role on Seasons 1 and 2 of the aforementioned program.
Neilson also worked as a model for years and was very close friends with fashion designer Alexander McQueen, who died by suicide at age 40 in February of 2015.
She said in the past, shortly after McQueen killed himself, that he once proposed and that she wished she had accepted.
“The truth is I was happier with Lee [Alexander McQueen] than with anyone else,” she told The Daily Mail in 2010, adding at the time:
“He asked me to marry him towards the end and I said no. I wish now that I had said yes.”
In more recent years, she worked as a children’s author, writing a series of books titled The Me Me Me’s, which were inspired by her struggles with dyslexia.
After being assaulted at the age of 16 in Perth, Australia, Neilson fell into a dark depression and started using drugs.
She talked candidly over the years about this period of her life as well.
Speaking to The Daily Mail in this same interview from 2015, she said:
“I fell into a serious depression and became a heroin addict because it provided an escape bubble and was the only way I could cope.
“In a way, heroin saved me, because otherwise I would have killed myself.”
In Neilson’s Bravo bio from her time on Ladies of London, she described herself as a “fixture in the international party circuit” and says she counted Richard Branson, Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss as close pals.
“Kate is my best mate and I love her like a sister,” Neilson said back in the day.
“Yes, she’s an icon but to me she’s just Kate. We fight over stupid things, then we kiss and make up. We share clothes, we share everything and her fame has never been an issue.”
Ladies of London co-star Caroline Fleming remembered Annabelle on Monday night after news of her death went viral.
“My sweet Tinky, no words can express how devastated I feel at loosing you. Sweet delicate soul, you will be sorely missed,” Fleming said in an Instagram post, concluding:
“It’s impossible to comprehend that you are no longer here – we spoke on Wednesday and we planned lunch together next week and instead it’s the day of your funeral.
“I loved you from the moment I met you, such a special friendship you and I shared which I am so grateful for.”
Neilson was married to banker Nathaniel Rothschild from 1994 to 1997 and is survived by her parents, Max and Elizabeth, and her sister, Millie.
May she rest in peace.

There are couples who move too fast, and then there’s Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande.
Either Pete and Ariana cheated on their exes with one another — which seems very likely — or they’ve only been dating out for about three months.
In either case, they should probably let the dust settle a bit before they tie the knot, as there are few things in life that take as tremendous a toll as divorce.
But if you’ve been following this whirlwind romance, we probably don’t need to tell you these two have no intention of getting to know one another a bit better before making it legal.
Grande and Davidson made it clear pretty much from the very start that they have no time to waste when it comes to racing for the altar.
So it should come as no surprise that the wedding planning is reportedly already underway.
And fans think they’ve pinpointed the exact date of the couple’s big day.
Pete recently bestowed upon Ariana an incredibly meaningful present — a necklace with the FDNY badge of his late father, who was killed during 9/11 rescue efforts.
The number on the badge is 8418, and both Pete and Ari have the number tattooed on them in honor of Pete’s dad.
(Side note: We’re guessing there’s an inverse correlation between the number of matching tattoos a couple gets and the length of their relationship, but that’s a conversation for another time.)
The number is so significant to Davidson and Grande that many fans are now convinced the couple will tie the knot on August 4 — just two weeks from this Saturday.
It sounds crazy but then again, so does everything else about this relationship.
Neither party has confirmed or denied the rumor, but this could be a situation in which their silence speaks volumes.
After all, Pete speaks out on pretty much every rumor about his personal life that comes down the pipe.
Take, for example, the controversy over his dad’s badge.
Pete broke up with Cazzie David just weeks before going public with his relationship with Ariana.
Davidson is very big on the grand gesture, so he and Cazzie aslso have some matching tatts.
And she also wore Pete’s dad’s badge on a necklace.
When fans called him on the re-gift, however, Pete was quick to blurt out an explanation:
“actually i didn’t give that to my ex. yes she had one but it was a replica,” he replied to one fan.
“I had a bunch of replicas made,” he continued. “my sister and grandpa also have one. the one that ari has is the one my dad actually died in and the one [he] wore his entire career and the one i’ve worn for 17 years.
i’ve actually never taken it off other than for snl or work. so it means a lot of me. hope this helps. please learn to be nicer and not to assume the worst in people.”
Woof. Look, Pete can do whatever he wants with his dad’s badge, and we’re pulling for these two as a couple.
But the speed with Pete goes from zero to pissy toddler when defending this relationship doesn’t bode well for the future.
Folks who are secure in their relationships tend not to give a sh-t what others think about it, ya know?
For further evidence of this phenomenon, go to your Facebook and find the couple that posts the most cheesy, Hallmark-ass memes.
Now count the days until their ugly breakup.
Anyway, best of luck, you crazy kids!
