(03-18 09:07)

L'Wren Scott, American fashion designer to the stars and long-time girlfriend of Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, was found dead at her New York apartment on Monday.
Jagger was “completely shocked and devastated'' by the death of the 49-year-old Scott, a spokesman for the rocker said. According to US media, the former model was found hanged.
Jagger, 70, is in Australia touring with the Stones. They were due to perform in Perth on Wednesday. He and Scott had been dating since 2001 following his split from his second wife, Texan model Jerry Hall.
Scott was also a successful designer. Scott's family appealed for privacy, describing the death as “tragic.''
New York police said Scott was found dead at 200 11th Avenue, a block of luxury apartments in Chelsea, shortly after 10:00 am local time.
A spokeswoman told AFP: “She was pronounced dead on arrival. The investigation is ongoing. The medical examiners will determine the cause of death.''
The autopsy is expected to take place on Tuesday.—AFP
