L'Wren Scott Dead - Designer Found Hanging in Apparent Suicide

L’Wren Scott was found dead, hanging in her apartment, on Monday morning (March 17), according to the New York Daily News.

The 49-year-old fashion designer was found by her assistant at around 10am this morning in New York City, the police said. The police do not suspect foul play, but the Medical Examiner’s Office will determine a cause of death.

L’Wren, who started her career as a model and then a very influential celebrity stylist, has been in a long-term relationship with rocker Mick Jagger since 2001.

We send out our thoughts and condolences to all of L’Wren‘s loved ones during this incredibly difficult time.

    RIP Says:

    Believe it or not, some people are not that depressed at the time they commit suicide. Sometimes they are “tired.” Long-term depression can make people overly sensitive to even minor stresses and problems. They struggle daily just to find joy and feel good. Sometimes they decide they don’t want to continue going through the ups and downs anymore. They add up the pluses and minuses, and looking into the future, they make a decision based on what seems better to them. I’ve heard of people who don’t want to become senior citizens planning early to commit suicide by a certain age. They fear facing any serious illnesses. They’d rather die with their sanity and health. Very important to every single person alive is the beliefs about who you are and what you’re here for. Frankly, I think that if you do not seek God and depend on him to carry you through to the end, you’d better make sure your days are super-busy, so that you won’t have time to think about it. If not, when you’re older you can begin to believe your life had little meaning. Many old people are filled with regret and unhappiness. Add illness to that and it can be unbearable. I don’t think this lovely lady had children, did she? Also, had she been married before? Her relationship with Mick Jagger didn’t seem to be going anywhere. Maybe she needed a higher purpose for living than what she had in fashion, etc. In any case, I pray that she is at peace.

    Blind items are usually nonsense but this one reported on 13th may have a grain of truth to it.

    She is not dead, or at least don’t think she is dead. I think people would say something if she died although she has disappeared from the face of the earth and no one is saying much of anything right now. She is a C list celebrity but is A list in her own little corner of the celebrity world. Her boyfriend is a permanent A lister and has been cheating on her almost everyday for the past month which also adds fuel to the fire. They used to be inseparable. Now they are not only separated but he is having his way with groupies and celebrities and other people taller than him. There are reports she had a breakdown because he was cheating on her. She canceled a huge event she was working on and has retreated into a hospital to get help although some people say she is hiding out at her home with medical professionals. You would think people would be talking by now but just the whispers getting louder. I think when her boyfriend gets back home the whispering will be much louder.
    C list celebrity: L’wren Scott

    Boyfriend: Mick Jagger (on tour in China)

    Having read another account of her death, assuming it was true, I have to wonder how they are so sure so quickly this was an obvious suicide. It could be autoerotic asphyxiation gone wrong.

    Depression is an illness. A devastating one to the person suffering and often to friends and family. What a horrible person you are to think this is funny. I’m assuming the LOL is your screen name just for this situation.

    Murder. Why would she kill herself?

    Who hangs themselves with a scarf sitting on the floor? Someone killed her.

    @Sad News: It’s sad you care about a blind item – which may not be even true regardless of what that garbage site says – after someone’s suicide. Get a life.

    Unlike L’wren Scott, I have a life which hasn’t been cut short by a serial cheater.

    Drats Says:

    In the photos, she and Jagger don’t look emotionally or physically connected at all. I wonder if she was lonely. He seems like a hard shell of a person. I hope he feels something for her now.

    I don’t know who she is, but this news broke my heart. every case of suicide does, actually. I am praying for her family, and also for her, where ever she is now. I am not religious (the religion I was born into says people who take their own lives automatically are going to hell but I think that’s ridiculous). if there’s a God, he should be loving and he should help these people who are in so much pain. i seriously hate the world we live in. there is just too much pain and no real way to escape it.

    “i seriously hate the world we live in. there is just too much pain and no real way to escape it.”
    I don’t agree. There is so much good in the world. Decent people, all over the world, offering a helping hand to those less fortunate. You just need to look for the good. It is alive and well.

    Lisa Says:

    The common link among people who kill themselves is the belief that suicide is the only solution to a set of overwhelming feelings. The attraction of suicide is that it will finally end these unbearable feelings. Unfortunately, it is often too late to realize that there are solutions to work out these feelings.

    Is anyone else bothered by the reports that several friends were allowed into the apartment before her body was removed and spent “several hours” with her body? Isn’t there a police protocol for this? Very sad indeed. Thoughts and prayers to her family.

    Mick Jagger’s longtime lover killed herself in her Manhattan condo on Monday — leaving the legendary rocker “devastated” and racing to New York from the Rolling Stones’ Australia tour.
    L’Wren Scott, who recently split from Jagger after 13 years and was millions of dollars in debt because of her crumbling business, used a black satin scarf to hang herself from a balcony door handle, sources said.
    Scott, 49, sent a text message around 8:30 a.m. telling her assistant, Brittany Penebre, to “come by” her ninth-floor duplex on Eleventh Avenue and West 24th Street at 10 a.m., the sources said.
    Penebre arrived right on time in an elevator that opens directly into the spacious apartment, and found Scott hanging from the L-shaped handle, sources said.
    She called 911 and Scott was pronounced dead at the scene.
    The 6-foot-3 Scott rigged the makeshift noose so that her body weight would cut off the oxygen to her brain. A law-enforcement source described it as a “painless” way to die.
    There was no note, no evidence of drugs and no sign of foul play, sources said.

    Not good Says:

    Her poor assistant was the one who found her and it must have been traumatizing for her and something she may never get over so it’s all the more shocking that she has received a message asking her to come over.
    That was a very cruel and evil thing for L’Wren Scott to do to her assistant and any sympathy I had has now gone out the window. What a wicked person.

    All the “money and … every help in the world” was clearly not enough to save her.

    Show some humanity.

    Me3 Says:

    She set her assistant up to find her? Why? I wouldn’t think dating a man like Jagger could end well. Too much power, money and fame to be down to earth and faithful. Very sad. Life is hard.

    why Says:

    Actually it’s more common in women than men to go out in a fashion that leaves the face intact and take precautions to preserve their face and beauty in death. Women are more likely to take pills, hang themselves, put their head in the oven etc. Men are more likely to shoot themselves in the head or jump off a building or bridge where there is no chance of sparing your face.

    L’wren’s logic may have been to let everyone know as soon as possible rather than dragging out what she had done. She could have seen it in a twisted way as a kindness. If only her assistant or someone had popped in earlier and prevented the whole thing. People in L’wren’s situation have tunnel vision. Call it selfish but they aren’t in a clear mental state to see how their choice to kill themselves always impacts friends and family negatively.
