Art dealer’s son killed himself after his girlfriend ended their relationship, it has been reported.

Kai Schachter-Rich, 21, had been dating 20-year-old Lady Lola Crichton-Stuart, daughter of the 7th Marquess of Bute.

The couple enjoyed a glamorous lifestyle posting photos of parties, art shows and trips around the world on Instagram.

But a police officer told an inquest he discovered a text message to Mr Schachter-Rich from Lady Lola, in which she appeared to have ended the relationship, the Daily Mail reports.

The Slade School of Fine Art student could not face life without his girlfriend and his body was found at his north London home.

His friend Jordan Vickers had gone to the property after Lady Lola said she had not heard from him all day, St Pancras Coroner’s Court was told.

Mr Vickers climbed through a first floor window after several attempts to contact him by phone.

Paramedics arrived at 10.22pm and pronounced Mr Schachter-Rich dead shortly after.

A post mortem examination found he took a cocktail of drink and drugs before he hanged himself.

Police also found an empty bottle of whisky and traces of ecstasy, cocaine and cannabis were also found in his body, although they did not contribute to his death.

Lady Lola and Mr Schachter-Rich had celebrated Valentines’ Day together just weeks before the tragedy.

Mr Schachter-Rich was the son New York art dealer Kenny Schachter and artist Ilona Rich and lived in both London and New York

His maternal grandfather was Marc Rich, a financier known as the “king of commodities” after founding multi-billion dollar company Glencore.

Socialite and model Lady Lola has appeared in society bible Tatler.

Her father is Johnny Crichton-Stuart , a former Formula 1 driver who won the 1988 24 Hours of Le Mans race.

Writing after his death, Lady Lola said: “You taught me so much about life and love, my role model, my rockstar.

“A life without you is a life I can’t bear the thought of. The thought you were in pain and suffering in silence breaks my heart.

“I wish I could have done more to save you. You made this world a better, brighter place with your epic energy and goofy grin and huge heart.

“I loved you with every bone in my body and more.’

Assistant Coroner Sarah Burke recorded a verdict though it wasn’t entirely clear why he chose to take his own life and there may have been other causes.

She said Mr Schachter-Rich “was a bright man with a bright future”.
