Report: Alexander McQueen left suicide notes, dumped by lover weeks before death

Designer Alexander McQueen left a series of suicide notes for his loved ones, the British paper, The Sun reports. 

It's not yet known -- and it may never be known -- what he wrote and to whom.

While McQueen was reportedly devastated by his mother's passing ten days prior to his death, it has now come out that his lover -- whose name was tattooed on his arm  --  recently broke up with him.

Police are said to have discovered "multiple notes" with McQueen's body which was found hanged in his Mayfair home in London. Their source says "He left letters to friends trying to explain his actions."

His family decided against a joint funeral and went ahead with McQueen's mother's funeral yesterday at Forest Gate, in East London. Now the devastated family has another sad service to plan.
