Mick Jagger's girlfriend L'Wren Scott has been found dead in a reported suicide.

Scott has been in a relationship with The Rolling Stones frontman since 2001 and was found in a Manhattan apartment this morning (March 17). New York Daily News reports that she was found "hanging from a scarf on a doorknob by her assistant" at around 10am.

No suicide note was found and police do not suspect foul play though the Medical Examiner’s Office are yet to determine a cause of death. A spokesman for Mick Jagger said he is "completely shocked and devastated" by the news.

The Rolling Stones are currently on tour in Australia and are due to perform in Perth on Wednesday (March 19). No announcements have yet been made about whether that show will go ahead.

Born Luann Bambrough, Scott worked as a model before rising to the top of her profession as a celebrity stylist and, later, designer.
