Mick Jagger's Girlfriend, Designer L'Wren Scott, Found Dead
The pair had been together for over a decade...
Mick Jagger’s long-term girlfriend L’Wren Scott has been found dead.
49-year old L'Wren was a former model, stylist and fashion designer.
According to reports, an assistant found her this morning in her apartment in New York. Police are treating her death as a suicide.
Born in Utah, 6”4 L’Wren moved to Paris to pursue a modeling career before settling in LA where she became a stylist to the stars.
In 2001 she began dating Rolling Stone singer Mick Jagger, splitting her time between the US and London. She went on to launch her own clothing label in 2006, dressing celebrities including Angelina Jolie, who famously wore a low-cut black number designer by Scott to the premiere of Brad Pitt’s The Assassination of Jesse James.
Recently there were rumours that L’Wren was in talks to design Angelina’s wedding gown.
Last month, however, the designer was frustrated after cancelling her London Fashion Week show due to production delays.
Mick Jagger, who is currently on tour in Australia, released a statement today through his publicist saying he was “completely shocked and devastated.”
