The body of Mick Jagger‘s partner L’Wren Scott, 49, was found at her New York apartment at 10am local time today.

The 6ft 3in fashion designer, who changed her name from Luann Bambrough when she began modelling at 17, got together with Mick in 2001.

Cause of death is yet to be determined but Miss Scott is reported to have taken her own life by hanging herself.

A spokesman for the Rolling Stones star, 70, says the singer was ‘completely shocked and devastated’ by the news.

‘A 49-year-old female was found this morning at 10.05am at 200 11th Avenue. She was unconscious,’ a spokeswoman for New York City Police Department tells the Daily Mail.

‘She was pronounced dead on arrival by the emergency medical services. The investigation is ongoing. We are awaiting medical examiners to determine the cause of death.’
