Sad News reported on L’WREN Scott, a fashion designer and celebrity stylist who was Mick Jagger’s girlfriend, has been found dead in Manhattan from an apparent suicide, police said.
Scott’s assistant found her dead at 10am Monday local time. The official said no note was found and there was no sign of foul play.
A spokeswoman for Mick Jagger says the singer was “completely shocked and devastated by the news.” The pair had been dating since 2001.
Band members Jagger, Ronnie Wood, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts arrived in Perth early yesterday morning for their ‘14 On Fire’ tour across Australia. The band was scheduled to play in Perth tomorrow night.
This morning, equipment trucks were still arriving at the venue, the new Perth Arena.
However, there are also unconfirmed reports the band has already left the hotel and were about to fly back to New York in a private jet.
She founded her high-end label in 2006 and recently created a more affordable line of clothes with Banana Republic.
On the red carpet, she has dressed stars like Nicole Kidman, Oprah Winfrey, Sarah Jessica Parker and Angelina Jolie.
“This is a horrible and tragic loss,” said Madonna. “I’m so upset. I loved L’Wren’s work and she was always so generous with me.”
Just last month Scott cancelled her London Fashion Week show, due to reported production delays.
Makeup artist Bobbi Brown collaborated with Scott last month on a cosmetics line called the Bobbi Brown x L’Wren Scott Collection.
This has shocked many and Brown said on her website “I am devastated by the tragic news about L’Wren,” “She was a visionary designer who I very much enjoyed working with, but she was also smart and kind. My thoughts and heartfelt condolences go out to her loved ones during this very sad time.”
