Today came the incredibly sad news that fashion designer L’Wren Scott was found dead in her New York City apartment Monday from an apparent suicide, according to many reports. Scott was the long-term girlfriend of Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger. She was only 49.
Scott, who was once a model, dated Jagger since 2001.
She owned her own eponymous fashion line, which she founded in 2006. Scott’s label was popular with celebrities, a lot of whom mourned her passing on their Twitter pages.
Her body was found by her assistant at 10:02 a.m. ET hanging from a scarf which was attached to a doorknob, the AP said while the wire service said no suicide note had been found, and that there was no sign of foul play. A medical examiner has of yet not confirmed the cause of the designer’s death.
Jagger has posted about the loss of his girlfriend on his Facebook page and adding a photo of L’Wren to his tribute:
It is really sad. She’s so young.
My thoughts, prayers and condolences are with her boyfriend and all the rest of her loved ones at this sad time. May she rest in peace.
