L'Wren Scott, Mick Jagger's Girlfriend and Fashion Designer, Found Dead
L'wren Scott, the girlfriend of Mick Jagger and notable fashion designer, was found dead of an apparent suicide in her Manhattan apartment on Monday, March 17th according to authorities. Scott sent a text to her assistant asking her to come by on Monday morning, and upon arriving the assistant found L'wren hanging in her apartment with a scarf around her neck, with no suicide note or signs of forced entry.
The 47 year old former model was best friends with Nicole Kidman for 25 years, and has been the girlfriend of Mick Jagger since 2001. L'wren who cancelled her London Fashion Week showing due to "production delays," has designed for and dressed celebrities the likes of Madonna, Nicole Kidman, Sandra Bullock , Angelina Jolie and even the First Lady Michelle Obama for the red carpet. L'wren also recently collaborated with Banana Republic on a recent holiday campaign. Even though Scott seemed to be a success, records show that she was more than $6M in debt.
Mick Jagger who was on tour with The Rolling Stones in Australia is said to be shocked and devastated. The Rolling Stones has cancelled their tour and will reschedule for a later date.
My prayers and condolences goes out to her family. May she rest in peace.
