Fashion designer L'Wren Scott, the longtime girlfriend of Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger, was found dead in her Manhattan apartment Monday from an apparent suicide. Scott was found hanging by her assistant at the designer’s Eleventh Avenue home at around 10 a.m. (ET).

A spokesperson for Jagger told The Hollywood Reporter that he is completely shocked and devastated by the news.
 
When reached by The Hollywood Reporter, “A New York Police Department spokesman could not confirm the identity of the woman, but said she was 49 years old and had been found unconscious and unresponsive. The NYPD will not identify her until the family is notified. He added that authorities believe it to be suicide, but the Medical Examiner's Office will determine the cause of death.”
 
Scott made news last month when she cancelled her London fashion show, blaming production delays. “Instead, Scott was planning to unveil her fall 2014 collection via social media,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
