NEW YORK — A law enforcement official said Monday that L'Wren Scott, a celebrity stylist, model, fashion designer and longtime girlfriend of Mick Jagger, has been found dead in Manhattan of a possible suicide.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the victim's next of kin had not yet been notified, said Scott was found hanging from a doorknob by her assistant at 10 a.m. Monday. The official said no note was found and there was no sign of foul play.
A spokesman for Mick Jagger says the singer is "completely shocked and devastated by the news." The pair had been dating since 2001.
The Utah-born Scott had her own fashion label popular with celebrities. She was a fixture on Jagger's arm and, at about 6-foot-3, towered over her famous boyfriend.
She founded her high-end label in 2006 and recently created a more affordable line of clothes with Banana Republic.
