Rock legend Mick Jagger‘s longtime live-in girlfriend apparently took her own life early this morning, the NY Daily News reports.
L’Wren Scott, a 47-year-old fashion designer and model, was found dead in her Manhattan apartment Monday, police told the Daily News.
Scott’s personal assistant discovered the body in Scott’s luxury apartment at 200 11th Ave. around 10 a.m. She was hanging from a doorknob with a scarf wound tightly around her neck.
From NY Daily News:
Scott texted her assistant at 8:30 a.m. and asked that she come over, police sources said. When she arrived, she found the body and called 911.
Police did not suspect foul play, a source said, but the Medical Examiner’s Office will determine a cause of death. No suicide note was found.
Jagger said via a spokesperson that he is “completely shocked and devastated by the news” of her death.
The former model met the Rolling Stones singer in 2001.
Scott began her career as a model in Paris shortly after graduating high school in her home state of Utah. She went on to pose for notable brands such as Thierry Mugler and Chanel, before moving to California in the early ‘90s and establishing herself as a sought-after stylist.
