Turns out, Tony Scott DID leave an emotional farewell note, but the message did not include any possible motivation as to WHY he decided to end his own life.
The note was described to be "short and sweet," and included a proclamation of unrequited love for his wife and two kids–Max and Frank.
Sources say Tony's wife could not tell

Talk to us, Mav!
Tom Cruise endured a lot these past few months, from his split with Katie, to ensuing custody complications with Suri, and now with the tragic death and apparent suicide of his dear friend Tony Scott.
Friends and family close to him are worried all these stresses are simply too much for one man to handle!
They think he should take some time to find himself but they say getting him to take vacay is mission impossible!

Tom Cruise has already stated that he "will really miss" his "dear friend" Tony Scott and so will fans of the duo's 1986 classic, Top Gun.
It turns out they were actively working on the sequel!
Scott actually spent the last days of his life in preparation for the project. According to sources, both the director and Cruise toured a naval air station in Nevada last Friday to research the movie!

While it comes as no surprise in this day and age, we're actually still shocked that their are reportedly people actually trying to profit from Tony Scott's suicide!
There were numerous witnesses watching as the director parked on the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro, California and proceeded to jump to his death, but some were using their cell phones to video tape the incident too.
Now sources are saying that people with footage are shopping it around!
Yuck! We hope no outlets bite this deplorable bait because it's not something anybody needs or should want to see.
It's a shame that the people recording were more worried about capturing the footage than they were about trying to talk Tony out of taking his own life!

ABC a pretty sizable oops yesterday.
Following the on-air incident in which investigative reporter Brian Ross falsely declared a link between the Tea Party and Aurora, Colorado killer James Holmes, Good Morning America suggested that Tony Scott committed suicide because he "had inoperable brain cancer."
The director's widow had no idea what they were talking about and is calling the report incorrect, while ABC has changed their story's headline to reflect that the "brain cancer report appears
