L’Wren Scott, fashion designer and longtime lover of Mick Jagger, committed suicide. The 49 years old famous designer took her life in his condo in Manhattan on Monday – leaving the rocker devastated during the Rolling Stones tour in Australia.
It was learned that Jagger and L’Wren had recently ended their 13 years relationship and had millions in debt because their business had gone very bad. According to sources, she used a black satin scarf to hang herself from a doorknob of her balcony.
Scott had sent a text message to her assistant Brittany Penebre at 8:30 am asking her to stop by her condo at 10 am. The assistant arrived on time in the elevator that opens directly into the apartment to find Scott hanging. She called 911 and L’Wren was pronounced dead at the scene. There was no note or evidence of drugs or suspicions of murder, the source said.
Mick Jagger’s spokesman said the singer was completely shocked and devastated by the death of Scott. The Rolling Stones website had not announced the suspension of the shows, but Jagger traveled from Australia to New York, which means that the concert on Wednesday in Pert, could be suspended.
There are many doubts about the reasons that made Scott commit suicide. Many close friends, including the actress Ellen Barkin, went to Scott’s apartment after learning of her death and spent time there with the body, a source said. “Scott was acting very strange and she avoided telephone calls”, a friend said.
Nobody really knows what made her take her life, but she must have been really depressed to do so.
