The death of L'Wren Scott, the fashion designer, former model and partner of The Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger, has been ruled as suicide by a coroner.

Scott's death was reported on Monday after her body was discovered in New York. It has since been confirmed by a coroner at the New York City medical examiner's office that she committed suicide by hanging. The verdict was delivered by Julie Bolcer, a spokesperson for the city's medical examiner.

Mick Jagger's bandmates in The Rolling Stones have shown their support for the frontman with Keith Richards expressing his shock at the news of Scott's suicide. "No-one saw this coming," said guitarist Richards in a statement released last night (March 19). "Mick's always been my soul brother and we love him… we're thick as thieves and we're all feeling for the man."

The Rolling Stones postponed the rest of their 14 On Fire tour of Australia and New Zealand following the death of Scott. A list of the dates affected by the postponement can be found here. Promoters urge fans with tickets to hold on to their tickets for the rescheduled shows.

Jagger released his own statement following the news of Scott's death in which said he was "struggling" to understand what had happened and that he had been "touched" by tributes and messages of support he has received.
