Long time girlfriend of Mick Jagger and fashion designer, L'Wren Scott's body was found this morning by her assistant inside her swanky Chelsea apartment. My police insider who arrived first on the scene, said the former model hung herself, using a scarf on a doorknob. There was no sign of foul play and a suicide note was not found. An ipad was found, but as of right now doesn't seemed to give any information to why the designer wanted to end her posh life. Scott's body was taken away this afternoon by the medical examiner for an autopsy to determine the cause of death.

Fran Curtis, the Rolling Stones publicist and spokesperson told USA Today that Mick Jagger is "completely shocked and devastated by the news. The two had a 10 year courtship.

L'Wren Scott was an Utah mormon, before meeting photographer Bruce Weber and becoming a model. She then became a successful stylist and fashion designer dressing Hollywood royalty like Nicole Kidman and the first lady Michelle Obama. Just last year the high end designer collaborated with Banana Republic for a line of affordable fancy frocks.

An hour after her body was found a Thank you tweet from her twitter handle (@Lwrenscott) went out to wardrobe stylist Jill Ohanneson, which means her social media team still didn't know of her passing.
