Sadly, Mick Jagger’s girlfriend for over ten years, L’Wren Scott, age 47, and also a well-known fashion designer, was found dead inside her Manhattan, New York apartment on Monday morning in what appeared to be a suicide. This information came from a law enforcement official that was acquainted with the death investigation but who wanted to remain anonymous.
Scott’s personal assistant found her hanging from a door knob and there was a scarf wrapped around her neck, stated the official. There were not any signs of forced entry, and NYPD failed to discover any type of suicide note.
The assistant explained to police investigators that Scott had sent her a text early Monday morning wanting the assistant to come to her apartment, and when the assistant got there just after 10:00 a.m., Scott was found already dead in the living room. The assistant made an emergency call but it was too late. The police reports back up what the assistant said by stating that Scott did indeed text the assistant at 8:30 a.m., asking her to come over, but when she showed up, that was when she discovered Scott. Police have stated they do not suspect any kind of foul play, though an official report has yet to be released.
Even though suicide is believed to be the reason behind her death, it will take New York Medical Examiner to confirm the actual cause. That information will not be released for several days.
One of Mick Jagger’s spokespeople explained that Jagger was totally in shock and distraught by the news of Scott’s demise. She had been dating Jagger, age 70, since around the year 2003. The former model-turned designer created clothes that were worn by various celebrities such as Madonna, Nicole Kidman, Sarah Jessica Parker, Christina Hendricks, Allison Williams and even Michelle Obama. She had also designed numerous clothing items for Jagger to wear during the anniversary tour of Rolling Stones. It started back in 2012 and is now in Australia.
Scott also had just started a design collection for Banana Republic that came out in late 2013.
She was born and raised in the state of Utah and went by the name Laura Bambrough. The elegant beauty was first seen by photographer Bruce Weber at a hosiery shoot and she became a model after that. After doing modeling for numerous years, she changed careers and became a stylist. She would ultimately go on to create costumes for films such as the remake of Diabolique in 1996 and Mercy in 2000 She had also gotten a credit on the movie Ocean’s Thirteen as being a consultant to actress Ellen Barkin.
