Fashion designer L’Wren Scott, who has been dating Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger since 2001, was found dead in her Manhattan apartment by her assistant Monday morning. The cause of death is apparent suicide by hanging. She was 47.
Scott was raised in Utah and moved to Paris in the mid-1980s to become a model. In the 90s, she moved to California and became an in-demand stylist. She met Jagger at a photo shoot in 2001. A spokesperson for Jagger told Billboard in a statement that he is “completely shocked and devastated by the news.”
