We’ve got sad news to report today. Fashion designer to the stars, L’Wren Scott, was found dead in her Manhattan apartment on Monday (March 17). The 47-year-old was found by her assistant this morning around 10 a.m. ET, according to TMZ. Officials say L’Wren was hanging from a doorknob.
Police didn’t find a suicide note from L’Wren — who was dating Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger — and are not suspecting foul play.
L’Wren and Mick have been dating for 12 years and were last seen out in public last November when the designer was launching on of her fashion lines in Los Angeles. Throughout her career L’Wren has dressed some of the most famous faces in Hollywood, ranging from Nicole Kidman to Amy Adams.
A spokesman for Mick tells BBC the singer was “completely shocked and devastated” by this news. The band is currently on tour in Australia. No word yet on whether or not he’ll be able to make it back to the US, but we suspect that he would.
There’s no official statement from L’Wren’s camp yet, but we’ll be on the lookout for the latest developments.
Our hearts go out to all affected by L’Wren’s passing.
