The wife of a Hollywood producer who jumped to her death from a Los Angeles hotel is a British aristocrat mother-of-two who once partied with Amy Winehouse.

Isabelle Thomas, 39, was found lying by the pool area of the Hotel Angeleno on Monday night. 

Her husband of five years, Bradley Thomas, is currently in the midst of promoting his Oscar-nominated film. The couple have twin daughters named Poppy and Grace, with Thomas also a stepmother to Thomas’ older children Lucy and Charlie. 

The manner of death has been listed as suicide by the LA County Coroner’s Office, citing multiple traumatic injuries. The LAPD told DailyMail.com police responded to the scene about a deceased woman found in the pool area.

Thomas, daughter of Sir Henry Lawrence, 7th Baronet of Lucknow and his ex-wife Penelope, enjoyed a privileged childhood which saw her attend the private King Edward’s School and Prior Park College in Bath. 

She went on to attend Oxford University – the British equivalent of Harvard – graduating with a degree in biological sciences. A varied career followed, which included Thomas addressing the UN and The World Bank, as well as being appointed by former British prime minister, David Cameron, to serve as a tech advisor. 

Thomas also loved to party, and moonlighted as a DJ, with photos uploaded to an old Facebook profile showing her enjoying nights out at glitzy London events.  

She moved to California and continued her work as a consultant and producer, appointed a member of The UCLA Centre of Storytellers & Scholars Advisory Board.

A DJ whose gigs including Ibiza Rocks, The Grand Prix, and the official after-party for the Grammy Awards, she was a well-known face on the trans Atlantic social scene, with friends including musician James Blake and his presenter girlfriend Jameela Jamil. Thomas was also photographed with Amy Winehouse at a 2010 charity event in Camden, London, where the tragic singer lived.

Jamil, a fellow Briton living in California, was pictured with Blake at the Thomases October 2018 wedding in Rustic Canyon, Santa Monica.

On Monday, Jamil wrote on Instagram: ‘I lost a friend very suddenly this week. Don’t wait til later. Don’t presume you can just grow old together. Don’t presume the world is fair or makes sense. Dont take anyone or anything you love for granted for a minute.

‘My heart is completely and utterly broken and I don’t think I will ever recover.’

She said on the post she was ‘supposed to see her a few weeks ago but I was busy with stupid f****** work.’

She added: ‘I missed the chance to tell her I loved her. And hold her one last time.’

There was no suicide note left behind, TMZ reported, but police have not publicly confirmed that information. 

The Hotel Angeleno declined to comment when reached by DailyMail.com by phone on Thursday. 

Born in the Cotswolds as Isabelle Lawrence, her father was Sir Henry Lawrence, 7th Baronet of Lucknow – a senior physicist at Cheltenham General Hospital, who then became the head of the radiotherapy unit at Bristol Oncology Centre.

Sir Henry and her mother, Penelope Nunan, divorced in 1993 after 14 years of marriage.

She was raised alongside a brother five years her senior, Christopher Cosmo Lawrence.  

Izzy went to King Edward’s School in Bath then read biological sciences at Oxford University, studying at Brasenose College and majoring in neuroscience and animal behavior.

On graduating, in 2013 she was appointed by David Cameron as a member of the prime minister’s Tech City Advisory Board.

She created a series of music nights called Apocalypstick and began DJing live gigs including Ibiza Rocks, The Grand Prix, the official after-party for the Grammy Awards and Vogue’s Fashion Nights Out.

In one video, she is on a September 2013 panel commenting about designer Jil Sander’s latest collection, and introduces herself as ‘a broadcaster, consultant and creator who works across science and arts and style.’

By April 2014, she was featured in The Los Angeles Times, in an article about young tech entrepreneurs and influencers using a private plane company to fly to Coachella.

She was described as a ‘DJ-slash-model-slash-BBC-TV-presenter-slash-Oxford-grad’, who had just renewed her visa to stay in the United States.

She and James Blake – who would begin dating Jamil the following year – were both there to DJ, with Izzy, as she was known, DJing for a Lacoste event.

The multi-hyphenate went on to serve as a consultant for the World Bank, and speak to audiences at the United Nations climate change group, the Conference of Parties.

She also became a member of the UCLA Centre of Storytellers & Scholars Advisory Board. 

It is not known how she met Bradley Thomas, but the couple married in 2018 and have two young children. 

They were pictured together as recently as January 13 at the 2024 BAFTA Tea Party in Beverly Hills.

The tragic news comes as Bradley’s movie is up for Best Picture at the Oscars, among other nominations. 

Thomas was also one of the producers behind other hit films including There’s Something About Mary and Dumb and Dumber.
