Fashion designer and model L'Wren Scott was found hanged to death in her Manhattan apartment Monday, police said.
Scott, 49, was found hanging from a scarf tied to a doorknob when her assistant found her around 10am ET. There is no suspicion of foul play, though the New York medical examiner has not yet released a report.
Scott's eponymous, high-end clothing line, L'Wren, is a favorite of Hollywood celebs like Oprah Winfrey and Nicole Kidman and her designs have been worn by Michelle Obama. Scott had reportedly been tipped to design Angelina Jolie's wedding dress.
Scott had been dating Rolling Stone frontman Mick Jagger for 12 years. Jagger is currently on tour in Australia.
A spokesperson for Jagger said that the musician is "completely shocked and devastated by the news," and a rep for Scott's company added:
- "We confirm the tragic death of L'Wren Scott. At this devastating time for Ms. Scott's family and friends, we request that their privacy be respected. There will be no further public statement for the time-being."
