Mick Jagger’s Girlfriend, Fashion Designer L’Wren Scott, Found Dead of Apparent Suicide
L'Wren Scott, well-known fashion designer and girlfriend to Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger, was found hanged in her Manhattan apartment Monday. She was 47.
Scott had texted her assistant at 8:30 this morning asking her to come over. When the assistant arrived, she found Scott hung by a scarf from a doorknob. Foul play is not suspected.
The former model met Jagger in 2001 and her designs had been worn on the red carpet by Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, Sarah Jessica Parker and others at the Academy Awards.
In a spooky coincidence, both Scott's Facebook page and Twitter account had similar messages appear around the time of her death:
No suicide note has been found. The 70-year old Jagger said through a spokesperson that he is "completely shocked and devastated by the news" of her death. Jagger had posted a picture of himself on a Perth, Australia beach just hours before Scott's death as the Stones play a tour stop Wednesday in Australia.
