Fashion designer L’Wren Scott was found dead in her apartment. The star became famous as the girlfriend of Mick Jagger.
Reports by ABC News and the New York Daily News reveal that L’Wren Scott was actually found dead of an apparent suicide. The body of the star was found hanging from a scarf of a doorknob.
The body of the popular fashion designer was discovered by her assistant, in her New York apartment.
The assistant came to the fashion designer’s apartment after a text message received from Scott. She asked her to come over and let herself in with a key. The assistant claimed that she called 911 immediately after entering the apartment and seeing the body.
The cause of the death has not been confirmed yet, but the medical examiner’s office will announce it soon. According to some reports, even though it is believed that L’Wren Scott committed suicide, it seems that there was no note found by authorizes and no sign of foul play.
Mick Jagger was “completely shocked and devastated by the news,” as the spokesperson for the star said. It seems that the two were still in a relationship. In fact, Mick Jagger and L’Wren Scott were known to be together for more than a decade. At the moment, Jagger is on tour. The two first met in 2001 and they seemed to be a very happy couple. Sources claimed that the two stars were having a very happy relationship.
L’Wren Scott began her career in the fashion industry as a model. She worked for brands such as Thierry Mugler and Chanel. She launched her fashion brand in 2006 and achieved quite a big success. Some of the most famous actresses in the world wore her dresses, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Angelina Jolie and Nicole Kidman. Even Michelle Obama fell in love with the creations of the famous designer.
The tragic news was surely unexpected. The star announced she had canceled her London Fashion Week show in February. She cited production delays as the cause for this decision. It is yet for the police to find out if the star committed suicide or not.
