L'Wren Scott and Mick JaggeFashion designer L’Wren Scott, who was also Mick Jagger’s girlfriend of 13 years, has been found dead in her New York apartment. 

Her assistant found the 47 year old hanging from a door knob this morning, and as yet there is no suspicion of foul play. However the Medical Examiner has not yet released a formal report.

A spokesperson for Rolling Stones singer Mick said he was ‘shocked and devastated’ by his partner’s death. He is expected to fly to the US from Australia, where the band are currently touring, to be with his family.
