L’Wren Scott’s death confirmed as suicide

L’Wren Scott – fashion designer, model and longtime lover of Mick Jagger – was found dead in her New York City apartment on Monday morning by her assistant, apparently hanging from a door knob with a scarf around her neck. While it seemed to be pretty cut and dry that her death was a suicide, that has now been confirmed by NYC’s chief medical examiner’s office.

From CNN:

“The manner of death was determined to be suicide,” said Julie Bolcer, a spokeswoman for the office.

Scott’s remains have been claimed, according to Bolcer, though it was not immediately known by whom.

Really, really sad. Even sadder is Mick’s tribute to L’Wren on his website, posted on Tuesday:

I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way.

We spent many wonderful years together and had made a great life for ourselves.

She had great presence and her talent was much admired, not least by me.

I have been touched by the tributes that people have paid to her, and also the personal messages of support that I have received.

I will never forget her,

That’s awful. Suicide is a difficult thing to process and understand, especially when someone seemingly “has it all” – just goes to show that money, fame and success aren’t everything. It’s extremely sad that L’Wren was unable to find help or simply no longer had the will to live her life. She’ll be missed by a lot of people.

  • If L’wren uttered just three words “I need help” she might still be here. I read many reports that she was very proud and didn’t tell people when things were going bad. It’s very sad to me that this beautiful and talented woman would rather die than share her pain or troubles. So many people are devastated that she’s gone and if she only shared her need for help I feel her true friends would have done anything they could to help or advise her.

  • I work in hotel reservations for Australia and so many people have lost $1000s of dollars in flights and hotels because of the concert cancellation due to her selfish act. I feel for Mick obviously but her actions were those of a selfish inconsiderate brat. I’m not gonna be twee about it, not sorry

  • I think suicide is quite possibly one of the most selfish things a person can do. “Oh, I need to end my pain.” Oh, yeah? What about the pain you leave behind? You know, the pain that engulfs the people who loved you? Fucking assholes.
