And here’s a pile of sadness for your Monday. The New York Post reports that fashion designer L’Wren Scott, who was Mick Jagger’s girlfriend for 13 years, was found hanging in her apartment in Manhattan this morning. She was only 47.
The NYPD said that L’Wren’s assistant found her at around 10 this morning. L’Wren reportedly texted her assistant at 8am and asked her to come over. The Post says that she was hanging by a scarf tied to a doorknob. The cops don’t suspect foul play and they haven’t said if she left a note.
L’Wren Scott (born name: Luann Bambrough) grew up in a small town in Utah and when she was a teenager, photographer Bruce Weber discovered her. She changed her name and modeled for Chanel before she became a stylist. In 2004, she started her own fashion brand and many famous types wore her clothes including Nicole Kidman who seems to always be wearing L’Wren Scott.
Mick Jagger is currently on tour in Australia. His rep says that he’s “completely shocked and devastated.“
