Mick Jagger’s girlfriend and fashion designer, L’Wren Scott, was found dead in her Manhattan apartment from an apparent suicide.
According to the New York Daily News, Scott’s body was discovered by her assistant who found her hanging from a scarf tied to a doorknob around 10 a.m. Monday.
No suicide note was found, but officials do not suspect foul play. A medical examiner has yet to determine the exact cause of death.
The 49-year-old designer had been romantically linked to Jagger since 2001.
The rocker is currently touring with his band in Australia and has not released any public statements reacting to the news. However, ABC News reported that a spokesman for the Rolling Stones frontman said that he is completely shocked and devastated by the news.
Scott was raised a Mormon by her adoptive parents in Roy, Utah. She left Utah after graduating from high school and moved to Paris to pursue a career as a model. In the early 90s, she moved to California and became a highly influential celebrity stylist.
She was known for having dressed A-list actresses such as Nicole Kidman and Penelope Cruz. Oprah Winfrey and Michelle Obama were also fans of hers.
