Hi Bette!

Unfortunately, it's a sad true. Here are two important brazilian websites reporting his death:

Lilian Pacce: http://msn.lilianpacce.com.br/moda/m...-elite-models/

Chic: http://chic.ig.com.br/moda/noticia/j...re-aos-70-anos

^^ the info about this has just appeared on fb of Elite Paris, Bette https://m.facebook.com/eliteparis?re...07068569176914

Can this be regarded as verification?

Edit: I was surprised there was not any more information as well. I mean fb sources are questionable sometimes, but this is the official page of the agency, so I guess it's fine.

I had similar thoughts when reading this. He was a sleazebag and I had very little respect for him because of what he did with his models, regardless of how much he is responsible for the whole supermodel era. I'm still curious to know what the cause of his death is, though.

He was sick, with cancer.

This. He was by all accounts a predator. His relationship with Stephanie Seymour was the height of pedophilia.

I really think we should always avoid rash judgements, but most especially in the wake of someone's death. I'm not asking anyone to make him an eulogy or to be in any other way hypocritical, but avoiding tactless / tasteless comments and showing some respect for the family of the deceased, if nothing else, doesn't seem too much too ask.

Anyway, RIP.
My thoughts are with his family, Julian most especially.

Wow. I find it disturbing how people are glad he is dead. I understand he has done a lot of shady things but to be happy he is dead? That is pretty extreme. Most of us did not know him personally and even if we did, to feel a sense of positivity about his passing is a bit overboard.

Anyways, he is gone now. Nothing more to say or do. I send my condolences to his close friends & family.
