Mick Jagger's Girlfriend Designer L'Wren Scott Commits Suicide - Was She Embarrassed by Debt?
Sad news! Designer L'Wren Scott, 47, has committed suicide.
The body of L'Wren, who was Mick Jagger's girlfriend, was found hanging from a scarf in her Manhattan, New York apartment on Monday (17 March). Some reports have claimed that despite seeming successful, she was troubled and embarrassed about allegedly being in debt for over $6 million.
Jagger's spokesperson has said that the musician was "completely shocked and devastated" by her death.

Police do not suspect foul play, even though they have yet to recover a suicide note explaining her reasons for taking her life.
Reports suggest she texted her assistant at 8.30am local time and asked her to come to her apartment. When she arrived, she discovered her boss' lifeless body and called the police.

L'Wren, who began her career as a model, met Jagger in 2001. As well as dating him, she dressed stars like Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman and Penelope Cruz for red carpet events, and launched her own fashion brand in 2006.
Last month, she announced she had cancelled her London Fashion Week show, reportedly due to production problems.
