Fashion Designer L'Wren Scott Found Dead
49-year-old partner of The Rolling Stones Mick Jagger found in New York apartment after apparent suicide
This is sad. L'Wren Scott, the multi-talented former model and fashion designer, has allegedly taken her own life in New York overnight.
L'Wren had been the partner of Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger since 2001 and it's understood that her tragic loss may have affected some of the band's touring plans for this year.
Scott had designed dresses worn by the Hollywood A-List and First Lady Michele Obama, as well as styling high profile fashion shoots and fragrance launches.
Jagger has issued a short statement, saying that he is "completely shocked and devastated by the news.”
Our thoughts go out to her friends and family.
